Bartholomew and Thaddaeus

I’ve just been looking at these two disciples, because you never hear about them! The only references to them are: Matthew 10:3 2These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the

Why A Star?

I started reading through the book of Matthew again recently, and in Matthew 2, it talks about the three wise men (or magi in some translations) that came from the East. Something I’ve heard and read many times, but I got to thinking, why was it a star? 1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem

Romans, Grace, Faith, Law

I hear Christians referred to a lot as New Testament Christians, but what does that actually mean? Christians didn’t exist prior to the New Testament, before the New Testament there were no Christians, Christians only came into existance after Christ came to earth, prior to that there were no Christians, or I guess you could

Left Behind?

The concept of the rapture is an interesting one. It is Biblically based, but the popularised concept in the “Left Behind” series, isn’t really Biblically correct at all. If anything, it’s backwards. I’ve been studying this a bit, and the key things to the rapture concept seem to me to be, the saved will be

Character Comparison

Recently I’ve been listening to a series of prophecy seminars presented by Pr David Asscherick. They’re quite interesting studies, I just thought I would share a few verses with you though that he pointed out which compare the characters of Christ and Satan, so clearly. Have a look at Isaiah 14:12-14: 12How art thou fallen

Leviticus Chapter 12 and Christ

I find it quite interesting that, even before Christ came to be the ultimate sacrifice, God made it as easy as possible for the poor to come to Him, as well as the wealthy, as is illustrated in Leviticus 12:8, if a woman can’t afford a lamb, she is to provide doves or pigeons as

Leviticus Chapter 1 to 11

My Bible is a student study Bible, so it has lots of notes here and there and has a brief introduction to each book of the Bible just giving an overview of it and things like that. At the start of Leviticus, it says that many people lose interest in Leviticus when reading through the

Exodus Chapter 18 to 34 (Ten Commandments)

This part of Exodus is largely based around God’s Ten Commandments, and has some really good life advice in general. In chapter 18, Jethro, Moses’ father in law and the priest of Midian comes to visit after hearing everything that God is doing with the Israelites. In verses 13 to 26, after seeing how Moses

Exodus Chapters 1 to 17

Exodus is an interesting book to read. As it’s name suggests, the main focus of the first half is on the oppression and the Israelites exodus of Egypt. It then covers the ten commandments, and then almost all of the second half is focused entirely on the development of the tabernacle. I didn’t end up
