    other than the Gospels recorded information about Jesus, His life and His ministry. This curiosity lead them to finding three main outside sources, Pagan sources, Jewish sources, and second- and third-century sources, that scholars have scrutinized to see if they contain information about Jesus that is not portrayed in the Gospels. Unfortunately, none of these outside sources provide much detail about Jesus and his ministry, however, some of them do mention Jesus. For example, one Pagan source does not even mention Jesus until the early second century. Pliny, a Roman governor, wrote about a religious cult called “Christians.” He also mentions that these “Christians” worshiped a guy named Jesus. Even though…

    I used to think of the kingdom of God as some far off place that I hoped to get to someday.

Jesus kept saying that the…

God did not have to send his son to offer salvation to the world, he could’ve simply mandated it, or dramatically opened the heavens and given the call for salvation.…

Upon being baptized, God the Father and God the Holy Spirit both appear as the trinity in the same scene. This…

This twenty-first century phenomenon is a great opportunity for churches to capitalize on this innovative technology using it as a ministry tool for evangelism.
