Jesus in all

by admin

Jesus is found everywhere in the Bible – from the New Testament which tells about him, and the Old Testament which prophesies of him. The table below shows just how much there is in the Old Testament about him. He could not have arranged to have these prophecies fulfilled concerning himself. It would also be […]

A Glimpse of Eternity: A Transformed World

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) Jesus, in speaking to one of the Jewish Religious leaders, tells him that God promises unending life to those who believe. Just before Jesus said this, he told the […]

Storm on the Sea of Galilee

by admin

Once more Jesus is by the Sea of Galilee and “when he saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart to the other side.” “And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.” How Jesus must have longed for rest from the teeming multitudes who always gathered to hear him! […]

The Sermon on the Mount

by admin

We have passed over the hills of Galilee so often with Jesus that now we are getting quite familiar with the land. We are now walking with a multitude which has gathered from Caopernaum and Tiberias, and perhaps, Magdala. Almost ten miles have been covered, and we reach a curious-looking hill, which rises rather higher […]

Twelve Years Old

by admin

There are certain days and periods of the year which every boy or girl particularly remembers. In just the same way a Jewish child counted the months and days to particular times and seasons. Every Sabbath day marked a complete rest from labour or school; every new moon was marked by a similar rest, by […]

Early Days

by admin

In that little city of Bethlehem Joseph and Mary would find much to do. Joseph would be required to see to the enrollment of himself and his family. Then, when the eighth day had come, that important ceremony of circumcision had to be performed. Like Zecharias and Elisabeth, Joseph and Mary did not seek a […]

Jesus is born

A census is a most interesting and very important matter in national affairs. On a certain night the head of each household must record the names of all who stay that night in the house, together with other details concerning them. This census is used for many purposes today — for taxation, military, educational and […]

Mary

by admin

Galilee, like Judea, is hilly, and perched upon one of the steep hillsides was Nazareth. This mountain village was the home of a devout young maiden, of the name of Mary, who, at this time, was betrothed to a carpenter named Joseph. We may liken Jewish betrothal to that known as an engagement today. Her […]

Jesus Loves Me… and You

by admin

“Yes, Jesus loves me,” the old Sunday School song goes. It’s not very often talked about, but the love of Jesus is conditional. This is what he said, “As the Father loved me, so I have loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just […]

Jesus the King

by admin

The Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as the King.  Jesus is introduced firstly as the “son of David” and then the “son of Abraham”.  It would appear that Matthew is emphasizing the kingship of Jesus, since David is mentioned before Abraham.  The genealogy in Matthew chapter 1 presents Jesus being born through the kingly line […]
