Jesus’ Death, Burial, and Resurrection

The most important series of events in the history of the world was the death, the burial and the resurrection of Jesus. By means of His death, Jesus fulfilled prophecy and bought man’s freedom from slavery to sin. By means of His burial, Jesus removed any doubt that He had really died. By means of His resurrection, Jesus proved He […]

Harrowing Hart on Hell by Douglas Farrow

Is Hell Real and is Hell a Just Punishment?

It is interesting that a much higher percentage of people believe in the existence of heaven than believe in the existence of hell. According to the Bible, though, hell is just as real as heaven. The Bible clearly and explicitly teaches that hell is a real place to which the wicked/unbelieving are sent after death. We have all sinned against […]

Omission A Sin?

“But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the LORD; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.” Num. 32:23. We more easily identify with sins of commission than with sins of omission. Sometimes we even think that sins of omission are not serious, and we do not really need to do […]

The Parables of Jesus.

The Parables of Jesus Christ

With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything. Gospel of Mark 4:33-34 Jesus often taught in parables, an ancient Eastern literary genre. The prophet Ezekiel, for example, wrote in […]

For there is no partiality with God. Romans 2:11

Is God Partial?

“I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.” Lev. 26:12 The gods of the nations are terrorists and their worshipers are in constant dread and fervently work hard to appease them so that they do not get chastised. Such gods are never compassionate, they do not forgive and are never just and fair. […]

The Gospel of St. John

A Biblical History The Gospel according to John (Greek: Εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ἰωάννην) is quite different in character from the three synoptic gospels. It is highly literary and symbolic. It does not follow the same order or reproduce the same stories as the synoptic gospels. To a much greater degree, it is the product of a developed theological reflection and grows […]

Biggest Problem Known To Man.

Biggest Problem Known To Man

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matt. 11:28-30 One can be stressed or depressed and not know it. I’ve heard that a good number of people when rescued from abusive relationships return to the same situation. It makes me reflect on the children of Israel who voted to return to slavery […]

The Holy Apostle and Evangelist Matthew, was also named Levi (Mark 2:14; Luke 5:27); he was one of the Twelve Apostles (Mark 3:18; Luke 6:45; Acts 1:13), and was brother of the Apostle James Alphaeus (Mark 2:14). He was a publican, or tax-collector for Rome, in a time when the Jews were under the rule of the Roman Empire. He lived in the Galilean city of Capernaum. When Matthew heard the voice of Jesus Christ: “Come, follow Me” (Mt. 9:9), left everything and followed the Savior. Christ and His disciples did not refuse Matthew’s invitation and they visited his house, where they shared table with the publican’s friends and acquaintances. Like the host, they were also publicans and known sinners. This event disturbed the pharisees and scribes a great deal.

The Gospel of St. Matthew

The Lord’s Prayer Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Matthew […]
