One Book: Galatians

Galatians: Freed for Freedom In most of Paul’s letters that we read in the New Testament, he took a good bit of time at the beginning of each one to compliment and encourage the recipients of that letter. But with the Galatians, Paul doesn’t pull any punches; he just dives right in! He is perplexed by them, […]

One Book: Romans

Romans: When In Rome… Do you remember the days when people used to go to their mailboxes, anxiously awaiting the postcard from a loved one on vacation or that handwritten letter from a love interest who had moved far away? Letter writing has fallen on hard times. In our day of quick communications, it is rare for […]

One Book: Matthew

Matthew: Breaking the Silence When you turn the page of your Bible from the last book of the Old Testament (Malachi) to the first book of the New Testament (Matthew), it’s easy to miss just how much actually happened between the times that those two authors took up their pens.

Or even worse, some would actively take advantage of them. All the while, they maintained a shell of a religion and […]

One Book: Hosea

Hosea: A Love Story Like No Other While Hosea had much to say in comparison to some of the other “minor” prophets (he has 14 chapters, while some others just have one or two!), it’s actually Hosea’s marriage that has been remembered and emphasized far more than his message. What was it about this marriage that was […]

One Book: Ezekiel

Ezekiel: The Dead Made Alive Do we really believe that God can raise the dead? Ezekiel was one of God’s prophets, sent to speak to Israelites already in exile about God’s judgment on Jerusalem. But he didn’t just focus on the judgment – he turned their eyes forward to what God would do in the […]
