Thou Shalt Not Kill


Mark 15, Matt 27 It seems that the religious leaders conveniently forgot this commandment God gave through Moses. They were, as Mark noted, envious of Jesus. They tried in vain to remove Him from leading the people. Interestingly, earlier, the people had tried to make Jesus a king, but He removed himself so that could […]

Lost and Found


Luke 15 How do you handle losing something precious? In these three parables, Jesus taught something precious and valuable has gone missing. If that were you, how would you react?
