Parables

Sunday, 10th March 2024
Parables
Commentators on the parables of Jesus will tell you that a third of all Jesus' teaching is in parables. That might be true if you limit Jesus' teaching to parables, the sermon on the mount, and other words we have from Jesus. But surely the teachings of Jesus aren’t just about the words He spoke, but also His example and importantly His relationship with his father.

Paul's Defence – A Logical Argument

Monday, 4th March 2024

Paul’s arrest: In Acts chapter 21, we read that when Paul was discovered in the temple in Jerusalem, certain Jews falsely accused him and stirred up the Jews of the city to such a frenzy that they were about to kill him. Fortunately, the Roman authorities intervened and arrested him – perhaps partly for his own protection and partly because of the uproar - surely Paul must have done something very bad!

Finally, my brethren

Sunday, 3rd March 2024

Readings: Leviticus 8; Psalm 107; 1 Corinthians 16

Paul’s letters have structure, with most expressing early on his thanks for some aspect of his readers’ discipleship, and concluding with exhortations and warnings. Amongst these exhortations, most of us will find at least some applicable to ourselves. So let Paul exhort us.

Romans 16:17-18

The Call to a Life of Separation and Holiness

Friday, 1st March 2024
Nobody likes to be different. Perhaps it is something that dates back to our childhood days. Children can be cruel and are quick to pick up on anything that makes someone different, it makes them a potential target for teasing. Throughout our lives, we have a natural desire to be part of a group, to conform to its standards and we are afraid of standing out and drawing attention to ourselves in case it leads us into trouble.

Lessons in Leviticus

Monday, 26th February 2024

Reading Leviticus 1 (all quotations from KJV)

The exodus of Israelites from Egypt must have been an extraordinary event. The first census of Israel is in the early chapters of Numbers and records more than 600,000 men aged 20 and over.If we add wives and children to this total then there were a lot of people fleeing from the slavery and hardship in Goshen. From this information it has been estimated that, if this surging mass of people had been over ten miles long, it would have been about half a mile wide. It would have taken a few hours to pass any point.

Reminder and Progression

Sunday, 25th February 2024

Readings: Exodus 38; Psalms 100-101; 1 Corinthians 8-9

A month ago, when reading of the crucifixion of Jesus, we were reminded of the culmination of His ministry; undergoing betrayal, accusations, trial and sufferings that led to Him voluntarily submitting to the rulers of the day and to those they had encouraged to seek His downfall.

The Spirit of Christ in Isaiah (2)

Monday, 19th February 2024

There are, of course, many passages in Isaiah that involve the spirit of Christ, which are very familiar to us. A slightly more obscure one is in Isaiah 45:22,23: “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn … ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.’” Here God is speaking, and the bowing of the knee is to Him.

The Priesthood

Sunday, 18th February 2024
The Priesthood
Sometimes the details in the law of Moses seem unnecessary and irrelevant to our 21st Century life. How can a chapter packed with details of the dismemberment of sacrifices be relevant to the disciple of Christ? Of course, the answer lies in careful reading: the whole of the Bible has been preserved by God “for our instruction” (Romans 15:4).

The Spirit of Christ in Isaiah (1)

Monday, 12th February 2024

It is the Apostle Peter who uses the term ‘The Spirit of Christ in Prophecy’, as we shall see in more detail later. But what does it mean? Put simply, the Bible revelation centres in Christ. Clearly the Old Testament writers could not of themselves foretell the coming of Christ, and include all the detail so wonderfully fulfilled in the life of Christ. Since the Spirit of God moved the prophets to write, when those words spoke of Christ, it was the Spirit relating future events concerning him.
