Rahab – a character study. Part of the Dispelling myths series. Chapter one.


I am not so sure there are myths involved, as it is more a case of suppositions. My interest in Rahab started long ago, as I heard the stories, but rarely ever read the story for myself. If you follow my … Continue reading

This opening line is one that gives me grief. Galatians 3:1-3


In many of my posts I show you a bit of me; in other words, I make it personal, and then hopefully applicable. I am going to try to integrate myself into this one as well, but I am going … Continue reading

When Peter came to Antioch. Galatians 2:11

My notes as I prepared to teach on the Discipline of Fasting by Richard Foster.


I had been asked by my pastor to teach a couple of sessions out of one of the books from which he was yet to pick. When he named off the potential authors, I cringed internally as my pastor can … Continue reading

I am against you O Gog. Ezekiel 39 verses 1 through 6


While the study will be focused on Ezekiel 39, I saw such strong similarities to Ezekiel 38 that I felt I needed to quickly probe Ezekiel 38 once again. And the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying, Son of … Continue reading

New Years day and this is what you preach, the institution of the Lord’s supper? Mark 14:22 – 42

Aren’t you just a bit curious about what John had to say? John 1:19-20


In a recent post, I talked about spending time in a psyche hospital and how they asked me how long my parents had been alcoholics. That generated some negative feedback, not from a reader, but from a relative. Sadly, I … Continue reading
