Pentecost Snippets Part 1

We just celebrated Pentecost Sunday, the day we recognize the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the church. This account is given for us in Acts 2, and over the next few posts I would like to have a few snippets of biblical theology lacing the Scriptures together. This will be easier to read this […]

Sin Here, Sin There, Sin All Around

Genesis really is the foundation of the world and the revelation from God in the remaining 65 books of the Bible. Here is a little bit that you can have fun with as you are reading through God’s Word and living in His world. In the beginning, God made the world, then in that world […]

Samuel, Solomon, Jesus, Paul

I am a fan of connecting the Bible with the Bible. It gets me all sorts of excited when the threads of Scripture are woven to show a glorious picture that spans millenia. Before we get to that connection today, I ought to remind us all that the whole Bible is a tapestry of Christ; […]

In my studies and preparation for this sermon, I have been reading John Calvin’s lectures (which you can obtain digitally for a meager price here). There is much gold in what Calvin has written, but […]
