Soul sufferings of Jesus? Yes! In Gethsemane, Jesus told His Disciples … “My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.” Mark 14:34, this sure sounds like suffering to me, Anguish untold! He did NOT say “body!” Add John 12:27 … “Now is my soul troubled,” where “tarasso” at least means “disturbed, […]
I have been wondering something. If we are going to seek to learn about the “soul sufferings” of Jesus on the Cross … must we not at least attempt to consider the sufferings of God the Father as well? Did God suffer that Day? Is God the Father capable of suffering? Well, no doubt He […]
Soul sufferings? Is this thought even Biblical? Let me show you some vocabulary words that will help us answer that important question. We are going to John chapter 10, a critical Body of Information on Jesus’ Life and Death. There in verse 10 (of John 10) Jesus claims one of His great Titles. “I am […]
The more I ponder this aspect of our Lord’s agony on the Cross, the more I realize how ineffable our Subject really is! (“Ineffable” means, using Latin as its base, “not” plus “utterable!” Beyond words!) But I sure am thankful that Matthew, under the Guidance of the Holy Spirit, tells us this much: Jesus’ Soul […]
I read this line preparing for our lesson today. “God’s Wrath in the soul is the soul of suffering.” Another Preacher believes that these Words of Jesus, spoken from the Cross, epitomize the very depths of His “soul-suffering.” Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34 both carefully record them: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken […]
Of course as I research this holy Subject, Jesus’ Soul Sufferings or Jesus’ Spiritual Sufferings, I try to read widely on the Matter. And one writer believes those Agonies began at Gethsemane! John 18:1 … “When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, […]
Yes, Jesus suffered physically on the old rugged Cross. Untold pain, beyond our ability to grasp. Yet, surprisingly, the Gospel Accounts of Calvary do not concentrate on that pain. (For example, no gory details of the long nails being driven into His willing Body.) His Agony seems to have gone beyond the savage physical torture. […]
The Lesson title is both lengthy (too much so for today’s “text” readers) and its Subject profound (maybe deeper than any of us can go). I want to discuss here on our website, at least for a while, the “spiritual suffering” Jesus endured on the Cross of Calvary! Now let me quote a couple of […]
As some of you know, I am teaching a series of video Bible lessons from the Book of Ecclesiastes. And I have a confession to make. Through I have taught the Book several times previously … I was overwhelmed with the “vanity of life” it presented! I had begun to wonder if anything had meaning […]
Years ago, actually on the old format of our Website, I wrote a series of Lessons expositing Psalm 83. Where a bunch of Israel’s neighboring nations “gang up” on her and seek her destruction. You can still read those 18 Lessons by going to the “Bible Study Pages Archive” link at the top of this […]
There is a particular blessing God has pronounced upon those of us who pray for Israel! Psalm 122:6 … “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” I have complied a few Bible Verses to help us phrase our prayers to God on behalf of His “chosen Nation.” Ask Him to […]
Back in 2015 I wrote a series of Lessons on Prayer. They are buried in here the archives and dated July 7, 2015 through August 31, 2015. (Look in the “date column” on the right of this Page.) In those articles we look at the prayer lives of Abraham and Moses and Joshua! Then we […]
Trivia is defined as ” details, considerations, or pieces of information of little importance or value.” The word’s etymology (the study of the origin of words and the way in which their meanings have changed throughout history) clearly has a Greek background. Where “etumos” is one of their words for “truth.” In my opinion a […]
Back in 2015 I did a verse-by-verse study focusing on Psalm 28. But that material is “buried” here on our Website. Go back to June 29, 2015 then continue until July 7, 2015. There you will be able to read 9 Lessons on this little jewel, Psalm 28. Psalm 28,� King� James� Version� … (A Psalm of David) 1 […]
We are being told today that Mark’s Gospel actually ended at verse 8 of his last chapter, his 16th chapter. They say that the “two most ancient” manuscripts end with verse 8 there. (I own commentaries on Mark that stop their discussion of the Book at verse 8! Not a shred of explanation after that […]
It’s cooler here today, the temperature. Where we live Fall (Autumn) is “in the air.” I woke early and did some morning chores, walked a bit outside, and pondered the amazing Grace of God! I recently read that the New Testament word “grace” is often matched by the Old Testament word “favour.” God Almighty looking […]
The dictionary says: “a term normally used of once fresh water which has become slightly� salty, as is the mixture of river water and sea-water� in� estuaries.” The word “brackish” actually has a German background, where “brac” means “salty.” If the water had been even saltier, it would have been called “briny.” (I enjoy learning new words. A […]
My familiar Text Verse tonight is Hebrews 12:2 … “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” By the way, this verb is not a command, not here in our Bible! But it certainly is essential advice for anyone interested in growing to maturity in Christ. The word actually seems pretty simple, “looking!” […]
The Verse is forthright, words from Jesus’ Mouth in fact. “But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, RACA, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou FOOL, shall be […]
It is remarkable the little “details” the Bible records. For example, Matthew 4:21 … “And going on from thence, he (Jesus) saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, MENDING THEIR NETS; and he called them.” “Catching” fish, I understand. “And Jesus, walking […]
That name, “Esaias,” is simply the New Testament (Greek) spelling of the well-known Old Testament (Hebrew) Prophet “Isaiah!” At least that is the way the King James Version of Scripture (New Testament) spells his name. Twenty-one times it does this, from Matthew 3:3 to Romans 15:12. But, even more interesting, what does that name mean, […]
That’s how the Chrisitan deals with his or her already-forgiven sins! (The moment any soul is saved, God “washes away” all sin, past and present and future!) Confess! But “unconfessed” sin can still be a liability to the child of God. It can hinder our prayers. It can diminish our joy and peace and even […]
According to God’s Word, those three words in the Lesson Title describe part of the beauty of our future, dear Christian friends. The Apostle John writes … “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was NO MORE SEA.” Revelation […]
I just read a lovely devotional article on her, Asenath! She is mentioned only 3 times in the whole Bible! And on each occasion she is referenced in relation to her husband, Joseph! Here is our initial contract with this unique lady … “And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife […]
Our great God is the Expert on what I call “reversals.” Sorrow, with Him, can (immediately or eventually) become joy! Sickness … health! Even this change, death into life! How about a destiny in Hell … turned into an eternity in Heaven? Yes, He can! And really, He does all these things through the greatest […]
