A Review of the Trial of Derek Chauvin

If Derek Chauvin is found “not guilty,” he will not be found “not guilty” based on some complicated legal technicality, a burden of proof problem, or anything like that. Instead, he will be found “not guilty” because the evidence did not exist to convict him of a crime. More than that, it is most likely he will be found “not guilty” because he is actually innocent, not merely “not guilty.”

The Word “Begotten,” Inheritance, and the Genealogy of Matthew’s Gospel

This post is about the specific word “begotten” in scripture. My point is that it is a bad to eliminate the word “begotten” from Bibles and from our theological understanding. Unfortunately, we have almost forgotten what the word means at all. Contrary to popular belief, the word “begotten” does not mean “fathered” and it does not mean “born.” Instead, it is a word with no modern equivalent, but it is still a very important word with serious effects on theology and our understanding of God and the Bible.

The book of Job in the Bible is a very ancient book.

We’re going to explore the constellations and astronomy that we get in Job. There are a lot of surprises and some really good poetry.

Why Was Joseph Afraid of Archelaus?

In the last post, I explained where the Massacre of the Innocents is actually recorded in well-accepted history. It wasn’t obvious, but it is definitely there.

This post answers a second question that most people do not even know is an issue. Why was Joseph afraid to live in Bethlehem under Archelaus? There is an answer, but it is WAY crazier than you probably thought.
