Why Call Him “Jesus”?

Every year around this time we focus on the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. His birth is unique among the births of all other children from the beginning of time.

“I will make you, you old serpent, and the woman enemies. Your seed and the seed of the woman will be enemies. The seed of the woman will crush your head – and you shall bruise His heel.” (my paraphrase of Genesis 3:15)

This “Seed of the Woman” is the Lord Jesus Christ… Continue reading

Jesus, The Fulfiller Of The Law

The Law was given to an Israel who had hardened their hearts to the leading of God. The Law was given as a mirror to show us that we are sinners.

Repentance Before Restoration

In a few moments I’m going to read the third parable that Jesus preached, a parable commonly called “The Parable Of The Prodigal Son”.

Jakes, better than this foolish man standing… Continue reading

Eternal Sinless Mediator

Moses is getting ready to leave his beloved Israel. Moses was raised up by God to lead Israel from Egypt. I find it interesting that most of the great leaders in the Bible were not young, but older.
