  • The New Testament Church

    The New Testament Church as an Influence in the 21st Century What a question or a statement. Either way the question or statement is no or a false statement. The first century church does not have the influence as it should in the 21st Century. There is one single reason, man. Man has thought when he should listen or do. The Bible is very clear, "If you love Me, keep My commandment" John 14:15 (NKJV). Jesus knew that man will think too much and would "love" Jesus his way versus the way that Jesus would. In the history of the first century church we can track where and when man thought too much and corrupted God's pure word. "Every word of God is pure..." Proverbs 30:5 (NKJV). The New Testament is full of warnings of going astray. "Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple." Romans 16:17 (NJKV). Men have always thought that they could lead God's church better than God. We can see in history of how wrong they were.…

  • Peace In The New Testament

    emulated within significant texts and writings. Christianity’s understanding of worldly and individual peace continues to be communicated within the teachings of the Holy Bible, exclusively the New Testament.

  • Old Testament Prophecy In The New Testament

    The Interpretation of Old Testament Prophecy in the New Testament Ever since the beginning of Christianity, there has been the age-old debate between some Christian scholars concerning the interpretation of the Old Testament (OT) prophecy in the New Testament (NT), and whether or not such interpretation is valid. Perhaps, such disagreement might be the reason for the various sects of Christianity and why some of the Jewish faith still holds true to the OT belief system. Notwithstanding, one fact…

  • Justification In The New Testament

    Grudem summarizes this confidence well when he says, “God will never take vengeance on us for our past sins or make us pay the penalty that is due for them or punish us out of wrath for the purpose of doing harm.” (Grudem 732). Justification in the New Testament is contrasted with condemnation. With justification and Christ’s atoning death comes our salvation and every spiritual blessing. This means there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). This promise is both…

  • The Bible: The Repercussions Of The New Testament

    The Bible is commonly referred to as the most read book in the entire world, which is quite a feat especially considering how old the Bible actually is. However, if you consider that the Bible is one of the key foundations of Christianity and add that to the fact that there are Christians on every continent, then the wide spread influence of the Bible makes more sense. What is interesting is that the Old Testament of the Christian Bible includes Hebrew Scriptures that make up some of Jewish law…

  • Antipas: Context Of The New Testament

    The book is about a fictional character named Antipas interacting with real people in a real setting, 1st century Rome. The role of Antipas can be interpreted as anyone who is unfamiliar with the context of the New Testament. Antipas started as a complete outsider to the Christians, but that didn’t discourage, nor did it stop him from interacting with Luke. As Antipas progressively learns more about Christ, and the Christian way of life, so does the readers of this book, who don’t understand the…

  • New Testament Reflection And Analysis

    When I was initially given my class schedule, I was not excited for New Testament Literature and Theology. To be honest, an early morning Bible class is not exactly what excites me. Since my father is a Father, and my mother is a children 's ministry director, my upbringing was steeped in biblical teaching. Not that I expected to know everything, however, many of the “Ha, I bet you didn’t know that fact!” facts I was confident my education would 've left me sufficiently prepared. This lead me…

  • John The Baptist In The New Testament

    John the Baptist is a standout amongst the most particular characters in the New Testament. He had a bizarre pizazz for design, wearing wild-looking garments made of camel's hair and a calfskin belt around his midsection. He lived in the left wild, ate beetle and wild nectar and lectured an abnormal message. John the Baptist knew his fundamental purpose for existing. He unmistakably comprehended that God had separated him for a reason. Through God's bearing, John the Baptist tested the general…

  • Fasting In The New Testament Analysis

    FASTING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT A Common Discipline The discipline of fasting is a practice that is commonly misunderstood. The connotations that surround this spiritual discipline leave many people to view fasting in one of two extremes: something that is hazardous to one’s health, or something for those in a seemingly unreachable spiritual state. However, the reality is neither of these. To quote John Wesley, “Some have exalted fasting beyond all Scripture and reason; and others have…
