Volume 10, Number 3
Few things are cuter or more innocent than a lamb. It is this image that God chose to represent His Son in His sacrifice for our redemption. There are profound lessons to be learned from this ovine type. (Westock)

How Good It Is! (Part Two)
The Bible mentions eating around 700 times, highlighting the broad practicality of the Bible's instruction. Its lessons for us are drawn from life itself, and eating is a major part of everyone's experience. Regardless of race, wealth, education, gender, or age, everybody eats. By studying eating in the experiences of others, we plumb a deep well of instruction from which we can draw vital lessons to help us through life.

The rash of school shootings in America definitely has a cause, but it is not the ones that the "experts" blame on the evening news. Richard Ritenbaugh argues that the cause can be found in God's absence from our schools and public life.
Death of a Lamb
Since the church no longer keeps the Passover with the slaughter of a lamb, we miss important and poignant details that could enhance our observance. The author uses a personal experience with two ewes as a springboard to explain greater, spiritual lessons.

by Martin G. Collins
