Romans: The Letter That Changed the World (week 6 audio)

Romans: The Letter That Changed the World (week 6 audio)

Hi Dojo readers, Here is the audio from the final week of the study of Romans I taught at Good Shepherd UMC over the past 6 weeks. In it we finally get to the entire purpose in Paul’s writing to the Roman believers. Rather than being an aside or appendix on good behavior, Romans 12-15 is […]

Hagee says Ebola could be God’s judgment on America for rejecting Israeli settlements

Hagee says Ebola could be God’s judgment on America for rejecting Israeli settlements

“I don’t know the state of John Hagee’s soul. That is between him and the One to whom he will have to give an account of every careless word spoken (Matthew 12:36; Romans 14:12) while being held to a higher standard (James 3:1)…just as I will. But I believe that words like Hagee’s in the videos above do not serve the Prince of Peace, the God of Israel or the Spirit of Truth. Rather, whether knowingly or not, they serve to forward the agenda of the one who seeks only to kill and destroy (John 10:10).”

It’s a mixture of worship services, denominational […]

We barely had time to scratch the surface last night, but it was a great introduction to the numerous strands that make up the knot…

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘fulfillment’ and the virgin birth

Thayer Thursday – Biblical ‘fulfillment’ and the virgin birth

“Matthew sees in Jesus the filling fully of Israel’s past. By rooting Jesus in these Old Testament happenings, Matthew shows how Jesus fills fully, or brings to a full completion the story of Israel. He shows his readers that the stories of the Old Testament were echoes or shadows of what was to come.”

A different look at the story of Noah and the flood

A different look at the story of Noah and the flood

“Here is the rough, somewhat woodenly-literal translation I put together which seeks to leave the ambiguities of the text in place for the reader to wrestle with, and also leaves untranslated various Hebrew terms which are found particularly in the Creation narratives or which can be interpreted in more than one way.”

6 passages you won’t find illustrated in children’s Bibles

6 passages you won’t find illustrated in children’s Bibles

Hi Dojo readers, As an itinerant speaker, I do a fair bit of of teaching on the Bible in a number of different settings. However, most of the time my audience, class or congregation is made up of adults. I’m better in front of a group of adults than in front of a group of […]

The job description of “Messiah”

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 […]
