“The truth is that there’s a lot in the Bible that isn’t about Jesus.”

So goes the thesis of an article recently published by Logos, authored by theologian Michael S. Heiser. Logos hosts his article here.

I have my own thesis: the entirety of the Bible concerns Jesus in...

Recently, I have spent time listening through the Old Testament historical books using my audio Bible. In January, I had the blessing of attending a teaching workshop covering 1 Samuel. Every time I go through these books, I enjoy them more than I have previously. Yet,...

     This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow       to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.

I can tell you exactly where I finished John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. I read the novella on a day off one summer after I graduated from college. I started the book on a whim (I grabbed it from a cheap paperback sale), and I devoured it over the course of the day. S...

In Hebrews 2, we come across the first of several passages which offer a warning or an admonition to the reader. Specifically, verse 3 warns against neglecting the salvation found in Jesus Christ alone. The position of angels still makes itself known in the text. The w...

If you think the Old Testament does not serve a purpose for the Christian, you should probably stop reading the New Testament. Nearly every verse in this section refers to the Old Testament. Psalms 2, 45, 97, 102, 104, and 110 receive mention here; the author also uses...

Does theology have a point? Do it possess any kind of real meaning?

Who does theology help anyway? Does the regular man or woman looking to live faithfully before Christ have time to read all those big, dusty books anyway? 

And besides, shouldn’t Christians evangelize in...
