Topical

Most of the teachings on this site cover an entire book of the Bible. These teachings, on the other hand, are on various stand alone subjects.

  • Bathsheba
    There's more to the story of David and Bathsheba than you were probably told in Sunday school. The lady was quite the power player in Biblical Israel.
  • Demons 101
    Demons and spiritual warfare are always popular subjects for discussion. This study discusses who/what demons are and how/why they gain influence over people. It also discusses how to get rid of them.
  • Joseph's Dreams
    Joseph's dreams in Egypt have very different interpretations depending on whether one is an Egyptian or a Hebrew.
  • Judah's Character Development
    Three vignettes in Genesis show the development of Judah's character. In the first, he is the one who engineers selling his brother into slavery. In the scene with Tamar, we see a change. He is able to acknowledge his error and do what's necessary to make it right. Finally, standing before Joseph, he is able to put his own interests aside and do whatever is necessary to save his brother Benjamin. His character growth is simply astonishing.
  • Malachi Speaks to the Church
    Malachi, written after the Babylonian exile, addresses a jaded and cynical priesthood. They are just going through the motions to satisfy the crowd and maintain their places in society. In this they are very similar to much of the modern church.
  • Election 2016 - A Duty to Choose
    Until Y'shua returns, God has given man dominion on Earth. That means we have an obligation to participate in whatever political process we find ourselves in. In the 2016 Presidential election, the two candidates each have Biblical parallels which can help us to choose wisely.
  • Forgiveness and Time 2017
    We are creatures moving in time. As such, at the time we act, we cannot know the consequences of our actions; nor can we go back and undo our actions if they are unwise or cause damage. Forgiveness is the mechanism that God has provided that allows us to recover from our errors.
