How to Recognize Jesus

Avoid every question in relation to the humanity of Christ which is liable to be misunderstood. Truth lies close to the track of presumption. In treating upon the humanity of Christ, you need to guard strenuously every assertion, lest your words be taken to mean more than they imply, and thus you lose or dim … [Click to read more …]

The Transfiguration

Read all three Gospel accounts of the Transfiguration (Luke 9:27-36, Matt. 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8).

The charge would have been attempted murder. They fully intended to kill Him. What makes this more shocking is that they accosted Him in the sacred temple. The solemnity of their worship was turned into a mob scene of violence. In  a rage they pounced on Him, grabbing and dragging Him out of the temple, down the streets … [Click to read more …]

Jesus Asleep in the Boat

Although Jesus was fully conscious that He was both the Son of Man and the Son of God (Luke 22:67-70), Son of Man was our Savior’s favorite way of self-designation. The only other instances that the title appears are in Daniel 7:13, in Stephen’s speech (Acts 7:56) and in Revelation 1:13 and Rev. 14:14. The … [Click to read more …]
