All Accounted For

By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you. 2 Timothy 1:14 In April of 458 BC, as Ezra was getting ready to take a group of exiles from Babylon back to Jerusalem, he “set apart twelve of the leading priests” (Ezra 8:24) and handed over to their keeping […]

This Is The Day The Lord Hath Made

Remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and consecrated it. Exodus 20:8, 11 NRSV As with all God’s laws, the fourth commandment is intended […]

Jesus And The Messiah
