The Essentials: Lesson 4 – Eternal Life

Eternal life is a complex subject in the Bible.  Intermixed with the works of God and men, the subject can be muddled for main disciples.  Lesson 4 in our study of The Essentials of Christianity takes us deep into this topic.  Click here to view this lesson on Eternal Life.

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
