men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (John 3:19)
Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth (John 17:17)
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32)

The Prophesies Fulfilled – Jn. 19:23-42

As Christians, how do we know that what we believe is the truth? We know because of what the Bible says. Of course, critics claim that the Bible was written by men and is no more reliable than any other religious book. We know better. The Old Testament contains hundreds…

Pilate the Politician – Jn. 19:1-22

There was a time when I admired politicians. I was a young adult when Ronald Reagan was first elected. In fact, he was the first president I voted for. Back then, I considered 'good' politicians honorable people who were honestly trying to do the right thing. My views have changed…

Jesus the Humble King – Jn. 18:19-40

I normally like to introduce a Bible study with a practical illustration or an example that points us in the direction of the study's main lesson. We'll do things differently for this study. Instead of coming up with my own introduction, I will let Scripture speak for itself. I will…

Now It’s REAL – Jn. 18:1-18

Have you ever had one of those moments when something you had previously only heard about suddenly became reality? The experience could be good or bad. I remember when the first Gulf War started. I remember explicitly where I was when I heard the news. I remember discussing the draft…

A Prayer for the Gang (Part 2) – Jn. 17:13-26

Last week we started looking at the prayer Jesus prayed just before he and the disciples crossed Kidron and entered the garden of Gethsemane. Prior to the prayer, he had spent time teaching them some final lessons in preparation for his impending departure. In light of that, I believe this…

A Prayer for the Gang (Part 1) – Jn. 17:1-12

Prayer is an interesting thing. There are different ways to pray, too. You have those emergency prayers: you're in a bind and you don't have time to think. You just need help. You have those casual prayers: praying for a meal or saying a quick word in the car before…

Sorrow Turned to Joy – Jn. 16:19-33

It has been said that 'time heals all wounds'. This old adage describes the reality that the emotional pain of loss fades over time. But is there something better? What if, instead of time healing wounds, the sorrow we experience were replaced by real joy? Is it possible? Yes, according…

Free Study Guide — Miracles II: More of the Signature of God

DOWNLOAD THE FREE GUIDE HERE Miracles are sometimes referred to as ‘signs and wonders’ in Scripture. They represent God doing things in such a way as to prove that He alone did them. They leave no room for human explanation — scientific or otherwise. God’s miracles also represent opportunities for…

Brace for Impact – Jn. 16:1-18

I read a post last week, written by someone who appears to be a fellow Christian. He wrote about his opinion that the US is beyond redemption; we have gone too far across the line and there is no turning back at this point. He also wrote about his preparations…

The Reason for So Much Hate – Jn. 15:14-27

It's not uncommon to hear people ask, "why is there so much hate in the world?" Unfortunately, human nature is to overthink things. We make things more complicated than they need to be. The answer to the question is quite simple. Hatred is the result of a lack of love.…
