    The Desert Will Bloom Again

    The Desert Will Bloom Again

    The Prophet Isaiah foretells of two different periods of time in Israel’s future. The first is a time when Israel is completely a land of milk. The other is a time when Israel will fully become a land of honey.

    What if I told you that one of the foremost Orthodox Jewish scholars of our day believes that Jesus fit perfectly into the religious expectations of First Century Judaism? Don’t believe me? Pick up The Jewish Gospels: The Story of the Jewish Christ by Daniel Boyarin.

    He Makes Me lie Down in Green Pastures

    He Makes Me lie Down in Green Pastures

    What image comes to your mind when you hear the phrase, “He makes me lie down in green pastures?” I’m pretty sure what you think about is the exact opposite of what the Psalmist meant.

    When Life Feels Like 2 Steps Forward and 1 Step Back

    When Life Feels Like 2 Steps Forward and 1 Step Back

    Here’s a tough truth: we’d like to believe that when we learn to depend on God in “the wilderness,” He moves us to the land of blessing and we all live happily ever after. But that’s just not the way it works.

    The Blessed Life

    The Blessed Life

    There’s a plant that is mentioned only once in the entire Hebrew Scriptures. The importance of this plant can’t be understated. It’s relevance to our daily lives is overwhelming. This little plant unlocks the dangers of the land of milk.

    A Land Flowing With Milk and Honey

    A Land Flowing With Milk and Honey

    The geography of Israel is used to teach spiritual lessons all throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. But sometimes, we miss the point altogether. In fact when I was a kid, I literally thought that the Promised Land flowed with actual milk and honey. It doesn’t. 

    What if I told you that one of the foremost Orthodox Jewish scholars of our day believes that Jesus fit perfectly into the religious expectations of First Century Judaism? Don’t believe me? Pick up The Jewish Gospels: The Story of the Jewish Christ by Daniel Boyarin.

    What is the Sign of Jonah?

    What is the Sign of Jonah?

    Some Bible nerds really struggle with the idea of Good Friday. After all, Jesus said that the sign proving He was who He claimed to be, was that He would spend 3 days and 3 nights in the grave. You can’t get that from a Friday resurrection, no matter how hard you try.
