Why did Jesus have to die?

To the everyday observer, having the leader of a religious movement get killed by the government should put a stop to the spread of that movement. But it wasn’t so with Jesus. Jesus’ death on the cross paved the way for his message to spread over the entire world, and in the end, be the ultimate hope for humanity. Do you have questions for us?

Into the New Testament

Jesus fulfilled many Old Testament prophecies. Now, having read through the Old Testament, we see just how present Jesus was throughout history, even before he arrived in the flesh. But if there’s still any doubt, we kick off our New Testament section of the E100 reading plan with John 1:1, confirming that Jesus, in fact was and is a part of the eternal Godhead.   Do you have questions for us?

Repentance and Reconciliation

The story of David and Bathsheba is one of the most salacious stories in the old testament and runs the gamut of ways we can choose to ignore God’s path, but it ends with a powerful example of accountability, repentance and reconciliation.

The books of first and second Samuel introduce us to the first two human kings of the Nation of Israel in the persons of Saul and David. It’s a powerful story of quickly we can lose sight of what God desires for us when we insist that our ways are better than God’s. We also see the stark contrast in the character of these two kings, and how it impacts their failure, and success. Do you have questions for us?

How Quick We Forget!

Today we make our way through the book of Judges. It’s heavy reading, but the lesson we learn here is that we as humans are quick to forget, as evidenced by the cyclical nature of how the nation of Israel remembered, followed, abandoned, and repented in the stories of the Judges.  Do you have questions for us?
