Authority, the Spirit, and the Word

| 0

God has spoken through the Spirit to our fathers in the prophets and now in Christ (Hebrews 1:1-3). There’s a lot of profound truth in there which is all too easy to elide; we do well to unpack the authority present in the Spirit and the Word of God.

Interpreting the Bible: Basic Hermeneutics

| 0

God has communicated His will and purposes through the prophets and Apostles; they recorded those messages in the Old and New Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 1:1). God communicated His purposes to be understood: good guidelines exist which help us properly make sense of what God has said. We do well to explore these guidelines for interpretation, known as basic hermeneutics.

The Power of Example

| 0

Christians are to follow Jesus’ commands (Matthew 28:19, 1 John 2:6). Well and good. But how? Jesus embodied God’s purposes. The Apostles appealed to the examples of the past and their own example. God has instructed us not only in word but also through example; we do well to observe the power of example.
