Miracles in the Book of Acts

When we think about miracles in the New Testament, we often consider the miracles of Christ in the Gospel accounts. There are, however, many miracles recorded in the book of Acts. A survey of these miraculous works is worthy of our reflection. Remember, Jesus Christ revealed to his disciples that they would have the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, after the ... read more »

Some Facts About Death

Death is an unpleasant subject. Unless one is in the "death" business (mortuaries, cemeteries, tombstones, etc.), he doesn't like to talk about it-much less reflect upon his own demise. Death has had a bad reputation throughout human history. It was pronounced as a penalty for Adam's sin in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 2:17), and all human beings (with the ... read more »

Clouds Without Water: A Review of the New ACU Commentary

In the little letter that bears his name, Jude, a half-brother of our Lord, addressed a malignant first-century movement that threatened to undermine the integrity of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Certain teachers had wormed their way among the early saints with the ambition of changing the fundamental composition of Christianity. They wanted an "emerging church," different from that of ... read more »

A Study of Messianic Psalms

Shortly before his ascension, Christ reminded the disciples concerning some of the things he had taught them. He brought to their attention the truth that "all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me" (Lk. 24:44). From Genesis to Malachi, one can see the progressive message of ... read more »

Created in the Image of God

The first chapter of Genesis is a literary phenomenon. Though written 3,500 years ago, it still is unblemished in its accuracy and sublimeness of presentation. Some years back, one of the world's foremost archaeologists declared that: "modern cosmogonies show such a disconcerting tendency to be short-lived that it may be doubted whether science has yet caught up with the Biblical ... read more »

Hell Is a Hot Topic These Days

Some years ago the British philosopher, Bertrand Russell, produced an essay titled, "Why I Am Not A Christian." One of the reasons he cited was the fact that Jesus, the founder of Christianity, believed in hell. When I first read that observation, my inclination was this: "Well, at least Russell understood what Jesus believed about that matter"-which is considerably more ... read more »

Lessons from the La Brea Tar Pits

More than two hundred years ago, the Spanish explorer Gaspar de Portola wrote about the "muchos pantamos de brea," i.e., the "extensive bogs of tar," that he observed in what is now the Los Angeles area of southern California. Just seven miles west of the Los Angeles Civic Center, lies one of the richest fossil deposits in the world. It ... read more »

Does Starlight Require Millions of Years to Reach the Earth?

"When we look at the farthest visible star, we are looking 4 billion years into the past; the light from that star, traveling at 186,000 miles a second, has taken many years to reach us. How would you explain this as it relates to creation?" First of all, I would dispute the chronological theory which suggests that the Universe dates ... read more »

Do the Events at Cana Justify the Worship of Mary?

"In John 2, at the wedding feast of Cana, Mary asked Jesus for a favor and he complied. Does that not show her power over him and hence justify the praise and worship of her?" Such a conclusion is a vast "stretch," far beyond the bounds of both scripture and logic. Let us give consideration to the following factors. Mary ... read more »

Ignore this Lesson and You’re History!

The mountain shook, and God spoke. When the Lord's voice thundered from Sinai, a covenant was made with Israel, and mankind was educated in the ways of God. When Israel arrived at Horeb, God required three days of preparation (Exodus 19:3-25). The divine manifestation was an epic moment in redemptive history; that's the way Israel was to consider it. God ... read more »
