  • Isaiah 19: A New Script for the Future
    Feb 20, 2015 After reading and re-reading Isaiah 19:18-25 several times, the words that initially came to mind were “wishful thinking” and “impossible.” This may be the most unusual and surprising passage in the entire Old Testament. “On that day there will be five cities in the ...

  • Numbers 16: The Destroying Angel and Korah’s Rebellion
    Dec 26, 2014 One of the most troubling stories in the Old Testament is Korah's rebellion where the earth opened up to swallow those who rebelled against God (Numbers 16:31, 32). The Bible says that after this a fire came out “from the Lord” (vs. 35) and destroyed 250 ... Continue Reading

  • John 3: “This is how the judgment works…”
    Oct 10, 2014 The Gospel of John has more to say about the judgment than any other book in the Bible. In his conversation with Nicodemus, Jesus makes a bold declaration, “This is how the judgment works: light has come into the world, but people prefer the darkness…” ... Continue Reading
  • John 1: Jesus as the “Lamb of God”
    Sep 21, 2014 John the Baptist introduces Jesus as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). What does this mean? We have become so conditioned to understand this in a legal sense, where Jesus came to make a payment to the Father ... Continue Reading
