What Made Mary Special?

What made Mary special? Was there something in her background that made God choose her? Did she have a high place in society? Let’s look at some background to try to answer those questions. Mary was a young girl (maybe as young as thirteen) from an obscure town. Actually, when one of Jesus’ future disciples […]

Pervasive Peace through the Second Advent

Pervasive Peace through the Second Advent

In Christmas, we celebrate the advent or coming of Christ. The first coming enabled a way for peace to be realized. Humans can, through Christ, have renewed fellowship with God. Yet, as Jesus Himself said, in the world we will have trouble and tribulation. So, if that’s the case, if in the world we will […]

Who is Jesus?

Who is Jesus? That is the all-important question. That is the hinge on which history hangs. That question has been a question for centuries. John the baptizer even said, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?” (Matt. 11:3). Islam says Jesus is a prophet. Jehovah’s Witnesses say Jesus […]

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 Forsaken

Jesus is Forsaken

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?”                              —Ps. 22:1-3 Jesus is Forsaken On the cross, Jesus cries out and quotes Psalm 22:1: “My God, my God,[1] why have Thou forsaken me?!”[2] This is especially pungent because Jesus, unlike all […]
