We rarely think about the birth of Jesus except during the Christmas season, when it is abused by traditional notions found nowhere in Scripture.
Ever since the rainbow after the flood, God has been providing additional signs, particularly those that promise that He will provide a Savior and Redeemer.
David Grabbe, focusing on the sign of Jonah, asserts that there is much more to it than the timing of three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, debunking the nonsense of a Friday afternoon 'good' Friday to Sunday Morning "Easter". . .
Jesus said He would be 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb, but that is impossible in a Friday crucifixion, Sunday resurrection scenario. Here's the biblical truth.
A scriptural explanation of the time of Christ's death, burial and resurrection, showing that He died on a Wednesday and rose from the dead on the Sabbath.
All four gospels include Zechariah's prophecy that Messiah would ride into Jerusalem on a donkey. This misunderstood beast has a unique symbolic meaning.
Some say Christ cannot be the Messiah because of His genealogy. Is this true? Richard Ritenbaugh shows why this argument is fallacious and why Jesus IS our Savior!
Focusing upon the post-resurrection accounts of Christ's ministry, Richard Ritenbaugh sees parallels between the reactions of the disciples and our own during times of upheaval: (1) displaying a state of shock, fear, and disbelief (2) having been condition. . .
What we believe automatically determines what we do; it is impossible to separate faith and works. If Jesus is not our source of belief, our works will suffer.
When God removes an infirmity or gives a blessing, He also gives a responsibility to follow through, using the blessing to overcome and glorify God.
