  • Social Justice In The Gospel Of Luke

    The Gospel of Matthew 1. Who was Matthew, and why was he qualified to write a book in the Bible? 1. Matthew was a tax collector who became a disciple of Jesus (Strauss, 2011, p. 5531).

  • New Testament Covenants

    A Journey Through the Covenants: Exodus, Deuteronomy, Hebrews “If there is a single most important theological structure in the Old and New Testament, few would disagree that it must be the covenant.

  • Why Do We Need To Be Plowed?

    However, I believe that many of us have forgotten this fact when it comes to the Word of God and someone’s heart. As I read Matthew 13 the parable of the sower, I see that a person’s heart is like the earth. It can be hard and full of rocks, thorns and weeds that hinders the Word of God from growing and produce a crop in someone’s life. For this reason, we as believers…

  • Forgiveness In The Sunflower By Simon Wiesenthal

    To Forgive or Not Forgive, That is the Question Throughout the New Testament of the Bible, Christians are constantly reminded of the importance of forgiveness. Mathew 6:15 states: “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (KJV). In other words, a person cannot expect to be forgiven by God if that person does not forgive others.
