Abram’s “samurai” raid & Melchizedek (Gen. 14 video study)

“Did you know Abram wasn’t simply a meek, octogenarian shepherd as he’s often portrayed? Rather, he was a highly-influential statesman with an army of over three hundred experienced trained fighters who were able to route an entire international coalition of ancient Near East kings’ armies!”

Thayer Thursday – Luke’s context of parables

Thayer Thursday – Luke’s context of parables

“Luke’s telling of these stories of Jesus in this order is not random or a coincidence. In telling them this way he is bringing to a head the conflict Jesus is having with the Pharisees and proclaiming that their rejection of Him and His work amongst the “tax collectors and sinners” is nothing less than the rejection of God’s plan of redemption from exile.”
