Jesus Christ

Majesty Mocked

In Matthew 27 we have an account of a series of events that took place in the lead up to Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. One of the scenes we have in this chapter is the despicable and demeaning way the soldiers treated Jesus. To them, Jesus was just another criminal. Matthew records it as follows,

Born to Die

When Mary was informed that she was going to be with Child, she was told that His name shall be called “Jesus”. This name was not chosen because it had a nice sound to it, nor was it a matter of it being in the top 10 boys’ name for that year. The reason for this is because He “will save his people from their sins” (Matt. 1:21).  

The Messiah in the Manger

The birth of Jesus was an extraordinary birth. It came as the result of the sovereign plan of God. This sovereign plan was determined before the foundation of world and in time was revealed in the Scriptures. It is for this reason the entrance of Jesus Christ into the world was not random or reactionary. He entered into the world in precise fulfillment to prophecy. Over…

True Peace

One time when Jesus was on a boat with His disciples a storm broke loose and the waves crashed into the boat and it started to flood with water.

Contemplating the Cross

  Many things in this world consume our minds and we can lead lives that are very busy leaving little time for contemplation. But this is damaging for us.

Plain Proof Jesus is the Son of God

  Most scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus Christ was an historical figure, yet not all are in agreement concerning His identity. It is without question that no other individual has had such an impact on the world. It is estimated that there are over two billion people in the world who profess to believe in Jesus Christ. If you were to take time to read the Gospel…

The Search for Satisfaction

It is a natural desire for people to seek and search for satisfaction. A baby cries for milk because he or she wants to be satisfied. What do people pursue in order to be satisfied? Here are just a few things that many strive to obtain so as to be satisfied – money, sex, health, beauty, fitness, friends, promotion and security. Of course this list could go on and…

The Lordship of Christ and Education

Achievement that comes as the result of learning is truly an amazing thing. Think about the moment a baby is able to actually guide a spoon into their mouth after many failed and messy attempts. Up until this point, the baby has managed to get food in almost every place you can imagine except for their mouth! But after trial and error, the baby finally learns. Another…
