Acts 1 & 2

Posted by Janet Wingard on

Acts 1 and 2 Acts 1 and 2 closely corresponds to the first two chapters of the author’s previous book, the Gospel of Luke. Luke 1–2 deals with the birth of the Savior. Acts 1–2 describes the birth of the church. Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35), and the same...

Do you believe in miracles?

Posted by on

John 20 Miracles are funny thing.  When I read about them in the Bible, it’s easy to identify them, and I’m amazed at the people watching who didn’t immediately drop everything and follow Jesus.  When miracles happen today, I sometimes think that the person claiming...

John 14 & 15

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

John 14: In a way this passage reminds me of Abbot and Costello’s old comedy sketch “who’s on first” Abbot is trying to explain the weird names of the baseball players and it does nothing but confuse Costello. Jesus probably felt a little like Abbot. He was trying to...

The Light Before Dark

Read John 12 What a series of beautiful moments for Jesus. He is anointed with fine perfume and enters Jerusalem as a King. Yet, the reason He is on earth is never far from His thoughts. In verse 27 and 28, He says, “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me...

John 1:1-18 is the introduction to John’s “cosmic” gospel. It begins and ends with Jesus unified with God. John previews Jesus cosmic journey from heaven to earth to the grave to His return to the Father’s side. The benefit of Jesus journey hangs in the balance at verse...

Jesus, Can You Hear Me Now?

Posted by Vickie Carmichael on

Luke 24 is the story of the resurrection and appearances of Jesus. This final chapter in the Book of Luke begins with overwhelming loss and sadness, but ends in great joy and renewed hope. Jesus communicates the love of God through His relationships with people. I believe Jesus was just as...

Lost and Found

Posted by on

There is no parable that paints a picture of God’s Grace more than that of the Prodigal Son found in Luke chapter 15. The story of the lost Son is one that needs little explanation and one that all Christians should understand. It’s a story of rebellion, sin, forgiveness and...
