Good Friday and the Passover Debate

Wrapping Jesus

Note: I’ve been gone for one day.  That’s not a great absence or “silence” on my part.  Actually, I’m not back, yet, but as this is Good Friday, putting off these thoughts until later didn’t make much sense.  Also, I think I came across too much as this being a “permanent” absence.  That is not the case (I hope).  I just need time for my own relationship with God, something that ministry can…

17 Now after the death of Jehoiada the leaders of Judah came and bowed down to the king. And the king listened to them. 18 Therefore they left the house of the Lord God of their fathers, and served wooden images and idols; and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem because of their trespass. 19 Yet He sent prophets to them, to bring them back to the Lord; and they testified against them, but they…

I haven’t yet written about the Blood Moons that everyone is talking about, and I wouldn’t have except that there seems to be so much confusion.  Here is the first important point: this has nothing to do with the Biblical Blood Moon.  Second point: this may or may not prove to be significant, anyway.

The Biblical Blood Moons are not simply a prophecy that there will be an eclipse and the moon…

“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;[a] and every branchthat bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you…

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions;[a] if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.[b] 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Does Jesus Have a God?

When I wrote the article Is Jesus the Jewish Messiah?, I was answering selected questions from a series posed by an Israelite evangelist.  (Israelite is the word he uses for himself.)  Many questions had the same answer and so were not addressed.  However, some were simply not addressed because a) the article was long enough already and b) I felt I was focusing on the most important or the most…

14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. 16 Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
