And, as a matter of full disclosure: I have never asked, nor will I ask for any compensation, monetization, or gratuities from this blog. While I believe Mr. Croce penned these words...

It’s the little things…

I sat with a group of men this week and we discussed the Opening chapters of Isaiah. This is a daunting task. Unraveling the depths of possibly the most prolific prophet of the Scriptures. In particular we honed in on a beautiful passage and its parallel in Psalms. And as usual, there is more! Isaiah... Continue Reading →

but Jesus fulfilled the law…

This phase "but Jesus fulfilled the law"... is a very popular phrase among Christians, particularly among those in the evangelical world. The part that gets blurry to me is their understanding of the phase. The basis of their supposition is cemented in Matthew 5:17. "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the...

Just enough Jesus…

The past few months has offered up the opportunity to speak to many people about faith. Not just the people with faith in Yehovah the Creator God of Israel, moreover, there were those in the various faiths labeled as pagan or cults too.

Religious rites were performed on the feriae, and public business was suspended. Even slaves were supposed to be given some form of rest.

They know not what they do…

As I sit and debate within, the compelling urge to act based on years of tradition; should I concede to the peer-pressure and parade my wife about town? After all, she is the mother of my child. Having grown up without my biological father, while simultaneously living (for a brief time) with an alcoholic and... Continue Reading →

The Depth of Shabbat

The depth of Shabbat Here are the questions: Are you firmly convinced the Sabbath is what God desires for man?
