Good News Amongst the Raging Waters

It is Saturday. It is the day we remember Jesus laying in a grave. It is quiet, it is solemn, it is lonely. It brings sadness. Many Christians are feeling Easter from a different perspective. We are not celebrating with our brothers and sisters Easter morning like we usually would. Our voices joining together with […]

The Resurrection and Our Hope No Matter What

What is the correct response to the coronavirus? Should we have fear or faith? Well, the answer to that question depends on where you’re coming from and your understanding of this world… The Bible teaches Christians that through Christ, no matter what we face, we can have faith. We can have hope. Reflecting on the […]

The Ascension

“The LORD says to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.’ 2The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! 3Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, […]

On what day did Jesus die?

First, I encourage you to read Matthew’s account in the Gospel of Matthew. It will be helpful to read since it’s the longest (Matt. 27:24-62). In Matthew’s account we see that Jesus dies (v. 45-56) and then Joseph of Arimathea asks Pilate for permission to bury Jesus’ body (Matt. 27:57-61). Joseph did this on the […]

The Resurrection

“I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; 26therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also will dwell in hope. 27For you will not abandon my soul to Hades, or let your Holy One see corruption. 28You have made […]

The Death

“When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. 18The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. 19Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. 20He keeps all his bones; not one of them […]

The Committal

“For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me; 4you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge. 5Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God… 13For I hear the […]

The Insults

“But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by mankind and despised by the people. 7All who see me mock me; they make mouths at me; they wag their heads; 8’He trusts in the LORD; let him deliver him; let him rescue him, for he delights in him!’” —Ps. 22:6-8 (Matt. 27:35-44) It […]

The Crucifixion

“Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 13They open wide their mouths at me, like a ravening and roaring lion. 14I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; 15my strength is dried […]

The Cleansing of the Temple

“For zeal for your house has consumed me, and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.”                              —Ps. 69:9 (cf. Jn. 2:13-17; Matt. 21:12-17)   That’s exactly what happened to Jesus. He was consumed by zeal for the […]
