This examination of Judas Iscariot is the outgrowth of a recent group Bible study on Hebrews.

Micah 1:5 part two, What is the transgression of Jacob?

A look at Micah. Chapter 1 verse 5. What is the rebellion of Jacob? Is it not Samaria?


When you read any mention of Samaria in the New Testament, you would think it was a forbidden city to the Jews; that was not the case; however, the hatred and animosity of the Samaritans indeed ran deep for a very long time.

A blog update and some thoughts on confession.


All these things have helped to make me who I am; and, if I am willing to open my mouth, following the lead of the Holy Spirit, the results can be amazing.
