    or about it. I am somewhat familiar with the miracles that Jesus performed, but that is it. I was blown away by the lecture of D. A. Carson. His knowledge and ability to recite and bounce between the Old and New Testament and weaving in John’s gospel I found amazing. I would be sitting in the front row if I was one of his students. After listening to him I can only imagine how in depth his paper would be responding to this assignment. The…

    the Kingdom, is found in all four Gospels but is mostly talked about in the Gospel of Matthew. An important part of The Proclamation of the Kingdom is in the Beatitudes, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 5:3). This is important because he is preaching to the crowd and getting them to understand that He is not of this world and He wants us to be a part of His kingdom. Another example of this mystery in the Gospel of Mark. You will see the Son of Man…

    Luke’s Gospel was written in the mid to late 80’s of the first century. The attributed author Luke was a physician and companion of Paul. The actual author was a gentile christian convert and a well educated historian at that. The original readers were wealthier Christians from Gentile backgrounds. His readers were people who have already heard of Jesus but wished to know more. Luke was composed probably in a Greek city where St. Paul founded the church. There were many previous narratives…

    passage from Mark 4:35-41 tells a story about one of Jesus’s extraordinary miracles. The miracle of the calming of a storm at sea. The story of the storm begins with departure in a boat. The storm comes next, then rousing of Jesus from sleep, his stilling the storm, and his asking the disciples why they are scared rather than trustful. The story closes on the note of the disciple’s awestruck fear at Jesus, for the storm no longer threatens (Gundry 1993). The theme of this biblical passage in…

Many have dug in deeper on the subject of the number of disciples Jesus really had. One was missing from the twelve as evidence has revealed.

    I find the discussion on this point tedious. After two thousand years- what can be refuted or disproved certainly would be. As pointed out in chapter 4 of ‘Life of Jesus’- “Mainstream experts overwhelmingly agree that the core of the gospel narrative is historically sound.” Our neighbors here with in West Michigan (and our peers throughout most of The U.S.) have certainly heard His message, and I have taken their ‘intellectual’ rejection of it with a heavy sigh and heavier heart. It…
