Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘Fulfillment’

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘Fulfillment’

For many who have grown up in the church (and probably many who didn’t) the Biblical concept of “prophecy and fulfillment” is generally misunderstood. In our culture, “prophecy” and its “fulfillment” are largely understood as consisting of a prediction which has its embodiment only and completely in the future. This is mostly due to Hollywood […]

Thayer Thursday – Geneology as Theology

Thayer Thursday – Geneology as Theology

“Other than the occasional commercial about ancestry.com or time spent reminiscing during family reunions or holidays – we don’t typically think about our lineage; especially not 42 generations worth! Imagine having 2,000 years of family history memorized!”

Thayer Thursday – Translations

“So as you can imagine, this has caused many to wonder why the Gospel of John varies the Greek word used for “love.” Many Bible teachers have extrapolated from this variation in language that Jesus’s use of the term “agapao” is meant to convey a ‘true’ or ‘deep’ love. Peter, on the other hand responds that he simply ‘loves’ Jesus (not ‘truly’ or ‘deeply’).”

“Right now, my son cares about his Double Stuffed Oreo cookie. He knows that if he eats what’s on his plate, he’ll get what he wants. But as his father – as much as I enjoy giving him his cookie, I care far more about his health.

The job description of “Messiah”

For many Christians, the term Messiah[1] is synonymous with who Jesus was and what He did. On this side of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus – our understanding of Messiah is inextricably linked with Jesus and all that comes with Him. So when we read a passage such as Mark 8:27-34, we are […]

Thayer Thursday – Tongues as a “sign” for unbelievers??

Every Wednesday morning we have a staff meeting here at the church. It usually includes a Bible study. This past Wednesday was especially interesting. Our study was about speaking in tongues (a confusing and often misunderstood topic). We focused on Paul’s teaching about it in 1 Corinthians 14. Considering this week’s sermon is on sharing […]

Thayer Thursday – Root Rot

“However, often we are far too easily pleased. We keep our roots tucked neatly under us, and live in a hole dug in clay. Just as I experienced this summer with my plants – this will lead to root rot. It will lead to decay.”
