    This teaching survey's the book of Hebrews gathering data about typology (foreshadowing) of Christ in the Old Testament. It turns out that the book of Hebrews is chock full of examples of types. Not only that, it gives us cause to look for very specific kinds of types when we are reading the Old Testament. This book unlocks the Old Testament in a wonderful way.

  • There is Always Hope In Jesus...

    No matter what comes in this life, there is always hope in Jesus. What I mean is that no matter how bad things can get in this life, the one who believes in Jesus always has something better to look forward to. This is because the most important aspect of life is to be made right with your Creator. When he hung between heaven and earth on the cross of the curse of God, Jesus cleared up the issues which separated us sinners from our Creator. He put us back on God’s side, and made a way for the LORD...

    O little lamb.  I know the journey has been long and the road hard for you.  I know the perplexity of life and the thunderous waves of competing voices make it so difficult to hear the only Voice that matters.  But do not fear, little one.  Do not fear. Sometimes you thought you were holding on by a mere thread, with just the tip of a finger above water.  You could barely utter a prayer, nay even a word.  All you could offer was the wordless, inner groaning of faith.  And in moments of weakness you thought He might...
  • New TV Series About Life of Jesus Becomes Biggest Crowdfunding Success in History

    A new series telling the life story of Jesus Christ has become the biggest crowdfunding project in history. “The Chosen” is a streaming series directed by Dallas Jenkins that has raised over $10 million from some 15,000 investors. When we started this whole thing I’d be impressed if we brought in $800,” Jenkins told Fox News. “The notion that we could start from scratch and shatter the all-time crowdfunding record was ludicrous, but this whole year has gone to show that there’s a passion for something different.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, the team behind the project employed a form...
  • The Righteous One Who GAVE Himself For UNRIGHTEOUS You and Me

    IFB ^ | 1/7/19
    There is ONLY One who is RIGHTEOUS and GAVE himself for the sins and transgressions of the whole world. That One is the Son of Almighty God Jesus Christ. The Bible states; "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17). "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to...

  • 12th Day of Christmas: Wise Men from the East

    Catholic Report ^ | Jan 2017 | Sandra Miesel
    We Three Kings of Orient are, Bearing gifts we traverse afar. . . . Who were these gift-bearing kings, these Wise Men of the East? What has their mission meant to Christians across the ages? The Wise Men—not yet called kings—make only a single appearance in Holy Scripture. St. Matthew’s Gospel (Mt 2:1-12) tells of their arrival in Jerusalem shortly after the birth of Jesus. In ancient texts of Scripture the Wise Men are Magoi in Greek and Magi in Latin. The singular form, Magos/Magus, is the source of our English word “magician” but had multiple meanings in Biblical times....

    Buried in the concluding paragraphs of a Christmas Eve Washington Times report about Muslims in Uganda forcing Christians to convert to Islam was the extraordinary revelation that in that country, Muslims now consider any public statement of the Christian Faith to be a calculated insult to Muslims, for which they can justifiably exact revenge. This is, or should be, sobering news for the comfortable Christians of the West who have made an idol out of “interfaith dialogue” and fastidiously avoid saying anything remotely critical about Islam, even as the Muslim persecution of Christians continues worldwide. “In June,” the Times reported,...
  • The sign Of Contradiction...Luke's Nativity pt 12

    And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said…(Luke 2:25-28)One of the...

    And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of...

    “Lenin lived, Lenin lives, Lenin will live!”That was the first line in my Soviet textbooks when I was a little girl growing up in the USSR. Does that line sound familiar? Maybe too familiar. Think back to the Bible. Depending on the translation, the line reads something like this: Christ died, Christ is risen, Christ shall come again. The similarity is intentional. Communists came to power over Christians in Soviet Russia. They knew that they needed to replace the Christian beliefs with something familiar to the people, to ease the transition. So they replaced Jesus with Lenin. It is thus not...

  • Can Anything Good Come From Nazareth?

    Ministry Matters ^ | 2011 | Adam Hamilton
    The Christmas story begins in the town of Nazareth nine months before the birth of Jesus. Now, if any narrative ever cried out for attention to detail it is this one, so it’s worth taking a good look at this little town and what it might tell us about the nature and character of God. Nazareth is much more widely known today than it ever was in Jesus’ day. It is not among the sixty-three villages of Galilee mentioned in the Hebrew Talmud or the forty-five mentioned by first-century Jewish historian Josephus, who knew the area well. This was an...

    Thank You, Almighty Lord God, for sending Your Beloved Son Jesus, arriving in the flesh as a little baby boy created and born through the Power of Your Holy Spirit! The Angel of the Lord and the angelic hosts brought the news of Christ's birth to the most humble yet strong of those who dwelt on the Earth at that time--shepherds, who watched over their flocks of sheep by night. May we humble ourselves under the Mighty Power of God, and give praise and worship to Him and to His Beloved Son Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, Who came...
