How Much Will N.T. Wright Influence Your Easter Sermon?

March 24th, 2014 · No Comments · Bible, Religion, Resurrection

N.T. Wright is, without a doubt, the most influential Christian scholar of the 21st century. His writing on Paul, Jesus, resurrection, the Bible and his commentaries are amazingly insightful and pretty hard to ignore. With Easter coming up, I am wondering how many of you feel like your reading of N.T. Wright will have any […]

December 26th, 2013 · No Comments · Bible, Bible Study, Christianity, Old Testament, Religion, Resurrection

“17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18 even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”[c] 19 Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so […]

August 21st, 2013 · No Comments · Christianity, Culture, Religion, Resurrection

The revolutionary and the cynic have only one thing in common. Both point out what is wrong. Then there are their differences… The cynic thrives in broken systems. The revolutionary challenges them. The cynic refuses to envision a better future. The revolutionary pursues it. The cynic is talk. The revolutionary is action. The cynic only […]

Easter Sunday is just around the corner. It is the time of year Christians around the world focus on Jesus’ resurrection. There is a real part inside us that would just like to skip right over Good Friday and land on Easter Sunday, kind of like watching The Passion of the Christ and using the […]

Abraham’s Belief in the Resurrection…A Necessary Inference.

April 25th, 2012 · No Comments · Bible, Christianity, Church, Church of Christ, Resurrection

Before I get started, this post really has nothing to do with the concept of necessary inference or its adequacy or use in biblical interpretation. What I do know is that Abraham had been told two things by God: Your son Isaac is the son of the promise. You will have a great number of […]

No New Ideas

May 31st, 2011 · No Comments · Bible, Christianity, Gospel, Jesus, Religion, Resurrection

How is it that all of a sudden old is new? All you have to do is look at the movies that came out in the last couple of years and the ones currently advertised to see that nostalgia is big. We have seen every possible concept from the 80’s made into a movie except […]

1Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the […]

We don’t like to leave Christ on the cross for very long. Our theology often gets in a rush to the resurrection. But the resurrection lacks its own possibility if you exclude the crucifixion of Christ. Anyone who has watched the movie The Passion of the Christ was moved by the brutality of what Jesus […]

Every year I look forward to going to Gulfcoast Getaway, a college rally in Panama City, FL. This year didn’t let me down. I had never heard Earl Lavender speak before. You can tell everything he said came from a richness of study and reflection over years of teaching, preaching, and living Christianly. Randy Harris […]

Attractional or Distractional – Part 2

December 3rd, 2009 · No Comments · Christ, Christian Music, Christianity, Church, Church of Christ, Gospel, Jesus, Ministry, New Testament, Resurrection

The Attractive Draw of the Cross: When I watched the crucifixion seen in the Passion of the Christ I had to force myself to keep my eyes glued to the screen. I didn’t want to see all the blood and violence but I figured if Christ endured it, I can at least witness it. On […]
