Confronting Your Purpose In This World With the Help of the Bible

The thing that many people in the Bible fail to realize is that it is not merely a story about things happening on Earth. Instead, it is a story about things happening “in Heaven” and on Earth. This is surprisingly more complicated than most people understand.

Why is it 2023? A Complete Explanation for the Numbered Year

But here are a few questions: Why is the year 2023? Why does 2023 start on January 1? Why did the year 1 start on that year? What is this whole A.D. thing about? Why is A.D. short for a Latin phrase while B.C. is short for an English phrase? These are good questions, which I will answer below.

Coming Soon: The Magi Star

As readers of this blog know, I love astronomy, and I believe absolutely everything I read in the Bible. I also do really deep dives into things most people completely ignore. This brings me to the Star of the Magi. The Star of the Magi is what I have named both the “Star in the…

The “Salt of the Earth” Is Probably Not Who You Think It Is

In Matthew 5, Jesus gives his Sermon on the Mount. He starts out with the well-known beatitudes: Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those…

Numbers 30, the Vows of Women, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ

I recently noticed something in the Old Testament that is quite striking when you think about it. It seems to be something that looks “sexist,” and certainly out of date. However, it has an application that is EXTREMELY significant to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, I think it is worth being explored. A Sticky…

Human Origins And The Bible: Solving the Genesis Population Problem

Most traditional evangelical Christians believe that Adam and Eve were the first (and at one point, the ONLY) human beings in existence in the relatively recent past. I count myself among them. I don’t “believe in” theistic evolution, and I also don’t “believe in” evolution in general. While things obviously evolve, any use of “evolution”…

The Coherent Creation Account of Genesis 1 and Genesis 2

Genesis 1 and 2 contain the creation account in the Bible. The problem is, they are quite different. As such, there is a great deal of commentary about how they are supposed to fit together, even though there is great difficulty in making this happen. The general idea about Genesis 1 and 2 among Christians…
