World’s #1 Lesson Writer

Most Bible Study lessons are written by people who do something else as their primary occupation. They are pastors who write Bible Study lessons, or professors at Bible colleges that write Bible Study lessons, or housewives that write Bible Study lessons on the side. In contrast, I have devoted most of my adult life to Bible Study […]

Devastation doesn’t have to be the end

Discomfort can lead to distrust

Any Jew reading Verse 1 would see it as ironic because the word “Bethlehem” means, “house of bread,” yet there was no food in the land, due to a famine. In the days when the judges ruled there was a famine in the land, and a man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in […]

Why Bible Reading Changes Some but Not Others

Back to 2 Corinthians 3.18, “beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image.” What image? The image of Jesus. The main thing for every Christian is to be changed into the image of Jesus. Discipleship is all about being transformed into the image of Jesus. We […]

The imperative of change

Changing is not a suggestion. It’s imperative. It is a command. “Do not be conformed,” (Romans 12:2) is an imperative in the Greek, as it is in the English. Zodhiates paraphrases this way, “Stop being molded by the external and fleeting fashions of this age, but undergo a deep inner change by the qualitative renewing […]

Teaching on tiptoe

One writer noted that the most effective sermons are preached on tip-toe. In an article written nearly a century ago, he compared two evangelists who had been invited to address soldiers at a military base. One preached a wonderful sermon full of spiritual truth and intellectual food for thought. It would have been welcomed in […]

A butterfly teaches us about spiritual growth

Here is another insight from the butterfly. When a butterfly turns from an egg to a caterpillar to a chrysalis to a butterfly, it is just becoming what it always was. You could put a mold around the egg and prevent it from growing, but the natural course of life for the egg is to […]

How to behold Him and be changed

2 Corinthians 3:18 says we are, “beholding as in a mirror.” This phrase is actually translating one Greek word: katoptrízō. We are to look at Jesus the same way we look in the mirror. Think of a woman putting on her makeup while looking in a mirror. She is not glancing at the mirror by […]

The more senses, the more learning

Imagine trying to teach someone to operate a computer using the same methodology we use in church. First, listen to a lecture on computers, try to unscramble the word ‘megabyte,’ look at the manual, memorize small portions of the manual, then bingo, you are a computer expert. How about teaching someone to drive a car? […]

It is all about intimacy

2 Corinthians 3.18 speaks of unveiled faces. “Faces” has to do with intimacy. Christianity is not a religion of rules. It is a faith of relationship. Lovers love to have their faces close. When Paul speaks of unveiled faces he is speaking of drawing near to God in intimacy. The unveiled face is a reference […]
