Approaching Exodus

1. We approach it biblically; that simply means that to understand Exodus we need to see it in relationship to the rest of the Bible. Right at the outset Exodus looks back to Genesis, because they are connected. When Jesus rose from the grave and walked on the road to Emmaus he explained how Moses and the Prophets pointed to him! So we want to see Exodus in the context of ...

Truth Quest Study: Jesus’ Crucifixion and Resurrection

Why did Jesus have to die? God is holy and just, and He requires due payment for sin. To simply forgive without receiving a payment would be unjust. The wages of sin is death.

Jesus sent a different message when He arrived in Jerusalem....

Inside the Ark

During Aron Osborne’s message on Noah this past Sunday, I was reminded of the following devotional I had written a while back. Aron pointed out so well the mercy of the Lord (He provided for Noah and his family; He pursues us; He is the initiator of our salvation!) and how the Lord’s mercy enables us to respond in faith-filled obedience. My short writing belo...
