There is much talk in the church today about "inheritance". From healing and the ending of injustices to great revival and financial prosperity, what some have haphazardly or intentionally called the "inheritance" of the believer either falls far short or is completely set against the Bible's description of our inheritance. Put simply, we have mistaken our childhood $5/week 'allowance' for an opulent estate and ownership of the family business.

A day is coming when God will dwell among men on the earth again (Revelation 21:3), when there is no more death, sorrow, crying...

The blogosphere and social media world have recently been filled with news of atrocities taking place all over the Middle East (some of which are just rumors spread by social media). One of the affected cities is Mosul, Iraq where a Muslim group, ISIS, has taken control. Christians have been driven from their homes and forced to renounce Christ at the penalty of death. Syrian Christians have recently also been heavily oppressed by Muslims.

If we were Christians living in the Roman...

As Jesus' disciples were baptizing, a dispute arises between John's disciples and a Jew over purification. John the Baptist gives a noble answer to them, calling himself a "friend of the bridegroom". Soon after, the Jewish authorities throw John in prison, sending Jesus and His new disciples north into Galilee. Learn more about the transition in this episode.

At some point after Jesus cleanses the Temple, He meets with Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. In this well-known scene in John 3, Jesus corrects Nicodemus' confidence and hope. Jesus was indeed the Messiah but would not establish His kingdom by an insurrection, and adherence to the Law of Moses qualify anyone to be a part of it. With a historical and biblical background, Jesus' words with Nicodemus take on a meaning that is quite different from the understanding of many today.

Jesus drove out money changers and those selling animals, indicting the Jewish authorities and asserting His authority over the temple.

What was the Temple in Jerusalem like in Jesus' day? It was absolutely magnificent - in fact, it was one of the wonders of the ancient world. Not only was it beautiful, but it was large. The entire complex was roughly the area of 35 football fields! This episode briefly examines the features of the Temple that Jesus knew.

Perhaps only a week after His emergence from the wilderness, Jesus heads to Cana in Galilee with His new disciples for a wedding celebration. When the wine runs out, Jesus creates nearly 150 gallons of wine from water. While it's important to see that this was not a "public" beginning to His ministry, it was at Cana that His disciples began to believe in Him.
