John 8:58 ‘Before Abraham was born, I am.’

John 8:58'Before Abraham was born, I am.' In Exodus, chapter three, we are granted the privilege of witnessing a dialogue between Moses and God; an interview that impregnates the memory of every serious believer in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This interview evolves out of the circumstances of what one writer has described as 'God Commissions Moses to Deliver Israel out o...

John 6:66'Upon this many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.' In the verses which have preceded this sixty-sixth verse of John, chapter 6, we are told, in the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, Himself: But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who it was that should betray him. A...

John 5:46 ‘If ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me.’

John 5:46'If ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me.' If ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? This seems to powerfully connect the Old Testament scriptures with those of the New Testament. Is it not fair to consider this to be true from these very words of Jesus ...

John 2:19 ‘Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’

John 2:19'Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.' This is a sequel to John's account of the cleansing of the temple in Jerusalem. Well known are the details of that cleansing that Jesus performed with a scourge of cords. He drove out all those merchandizers that were dishonoring His Father's house. And He said to them, Make not my Father's house a hous...

James 1:18 ‘He brought us forth by the word of truth.’

James 1:18'He brought us forth by the word of truth.' The most blessed and entire sentence that constitutes verse 1:18 of the epistle of James is absolutely full even to overflowing with beautiful and wonderful truths. Read for yourself and ponder each pregnant word or expression: Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first...

Luke 23:43 ‘Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise.’

Luke 23:43'Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise.' When anyone passes away from this life, we invariably hear someone make the statement that 'they are with God,' or, 'they are in heaven.' And although the Roman Catholic Church teaches the doctrine of purgatory, we virtually never hear it said of one of their communicants, upon passing, that they are in purgatory. What ...

Luke 23:12 ‘And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day.’

Luke 23:12'And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day.' We are informed by Luke in this passage that during the passing back and forth of Jesus between them, that Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day. Luke has not told us how or why this period of the trial of Christ made them to become friends. The only clue Luke has left i...

Luke 20:46 ‘Beware of the scribes.’

Luke 20:46'Beware of the scribes.' And in the hearing of all the people he said unto his disciples, Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk in long robes, and love salutations in the marketplaces, and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts; who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: these shall receive greater condemnation. The ...

Proverbs 19:5, 9 ‘A false witness shall not be unpunished.’

Proverbs 19:5, 9 'A false witness shall not be unpunished.' Repetition, repetition, repetition; is that not the way of learning? We were taught that from our youth, weren't we? How often in classes did we not go over the same material again and again until we had it stored in our hard drives (a conspicuous anachronism)? There is an old Latin saying making the very same p...
