Son Of Man And Son Of God

When a reader starts studying the New Testament, He will eventually learn that Jesus was known by different descriptive terms. One of which is the word Christ. That is simply a reference to Jesus being the anointed One of God. Then there are other terms like “the good shepherd”, “the door”, “the way”, “the truth”,

The Resurrection

The truth of Christianity hinges upon the legitimacy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus did not come out of the tomb triumphantly, then Christianity would be one of the biggest frauds in the history of mankind. However, the Word of God accurately states the following: “Now upon the first day of the week,

The Captain Of Their Salvation

There are many different occasions in which the Bible records details of our Savior. Each of those references is worthy of our attention and study. After all, Christians should be striving to be more like Jesus on a regular basis. The writer of Hebrews stated, “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower

A Wall Broken Down

One of the defining moments of the 1980’s was when President Ronald Reagan implored Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. It was seen as an opportunity for freedom to flourish in Germany. After the end of WWII, the wall separated communist East Germany from the more democratic West Germany. For years, individuals longed

The Immortal Soul

When addressing a question about marriage and the resurrection, our Lord took the time to explain the immortality of the soul. “Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection…” had presented a scenario that they apparently thought was sufficient to cause Jesus trouble (Luke 20:27). The situation was such that a woman had been married seven times. All

No Prophet Is Accepted In His Own Country

Early in the earthly ministry of Jesus, the Lord addressed a problem that hindered some from accepting the truth. After teaching in Galilee, the Bible records, “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for

God And Mammon

It is important to realize that God will not accept being secondary in any person’s life. The “first and great commandment” is to “…love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matt. 22:37). Yet, so many individuals have little to no time for God

He Did It Anyway

It is incredibly disappointing to know that so many people are either ignorant or have been taught incorrectly about the death of Jesus. Believe it or not, you might even encounter some who claim that Jesus did not realize why He came to Earth. Let me state, before I go any further, that Jesus knew

A Messianic Psalm

As many already know, the book of Psalms is a great study to endeavor. There are so many different things about God and His will that are revealed in those Psalms. One in particular is going to be examined for this article. The 22nd Psalm is known as a messianic psalm. The reason for that

Born Again

John chapter three is one of the most referenced segments of Scripture in all of the Bible.  Of course it contains the familiar verse, John 3:16, but there is much more in that chapter than just that one verse.  At the beginning of the chapter we are introduced to a Pharisee named Nicodemus.  Nicodemus came
