The Authority of Jesus Christ

Authority is a concept known to some degree by every responsible person. By most it is appreciated, for without it society would be chaotic. Others detest it, and refuse to live by it. The world's prisons are full of such rebels. "Authority" is a major biblical theme. The most popular Greek word for "authority" is exousia (sometimes translated as "power"). ... 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 »

Will Our Children Trust in the Lord?

The following bit of wisdom comes from Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." As Proverbs 3 begins, we observe this instruction is addressed to "my son."

The Jewish Talmud and the Death of Christ

In one of his epistles, Paul, lifting a text from the book of Job (5:13, LXX) to emphasize the folly of human wisdom in contrast to that which is divine, observed that God "catches the wise in their own craftiness" (1 Corinthians 3:19). A fisherman "caught in his own net" is a pathetic sight. Or, as Chrysostom (c. A.D. 347-407) ... read more »

Apostasy – A Clear and Ever-Present Danger

The sectarian notion that it is impossible for a child of God to so sin as to be lost eternally is widely believed by a host of sincere people. But the idea is fallacious. It was first vocalized in the Garden of Eden by Satan, who lied to Eve by telling her that disobedience to God would not result in ... 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 »

The Biblical Concept of “Time”

Human beings are creatures of "time," and we are preoccupied with that theme. We wear watches so that we can keep account of "time." We ask regarding the criminal: "How much 'time' did he get?" And we ourselves muse: "How much 'time' do I have left?" Our music contemplates this theme. We sing that "time goes on," and at the ... read more »

Back to Kindergarten

Generally, when a child is off to kindergarten, it is an exciting time in his life. A new pencil and tablet, learning the first steps in reading-all of these experiences are memorable indeed. It is hardly the case, however, that we long to return to that environment-as adults! The envisioned humiliation of such a circumstance reminds one of a text ... read more »

The Challenge of “Agape” Love

The New Testament was written in Koine Greek. The word Koine denotes "common," because this style of Greek was the language of the common man-on-the-street during the time of Christ. Koine Greek came into vogue about 300 years before the birth of Jesus, and it became an obsolete language about three centuries after the Lord's death. It was the most ... read more »
