The Essentials: Lesson 2 – God

Harmony of the Gospels: Part 13 – Crucifixion and Resurrection

This week marks the end of our brief journey through the Gospels.  If the beginning of the Gospels begin miraculously, then the end of the Gospels is even more amazing as child now a man faces His destiny.  The Bible describes these events with far more detail than earlier days for good reason.  This week’s […]

Harmony of the Gospels: Part 12 – Arrest and Trials of Jesus

The false arrest and even phonier trials of the Son of Man are a testament to the continued failure of mankind to see Him for the Savior.  His silence with Herod and His insightful comments to Pilate all demonstrate His meekness and ultimately His amazing restraint.  These false accusers represent all those who came before […]

Harmony of the Gospels: Part 6 – The Transfiguration

The transfiguration of Jesus on the mount was one of the most spectacular miracles to behold.  Based on the reaction of Peter, James, and John, we can only image the splendor of the glorified Christ shining in white raiment.  This event was so significant to them that they offered to build shrines (tabernacles) in memory […]

Harmony of the Gospels: Part 5 – John dies. Jesus walks on water.
