The Revelation: Part Two

THE REVELATION OF CHRIST to the apostle John on the Island of Patmos contains much symbolism. It presents valuable explanations and instructions regarding the Doctrine of "Last Things," or Eschatology—the Christian doctrine concerning what will happen in the final days. When will Christ return? What will happen when He comes back. What has to occur …

I Am Redeemed!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN to be "redeemed?" Sure, I could list theological, psychological, and sociological definitions, and there is nothing wrong with that approach. Definitions help define us. They allow us to compare, analyze, ruminate, consider, relate. We quantify and qualify through definitions. Relative to theology, definitions establish parameters; they provide the comfort of knowing …

First Principles: Part One

Holy Thursday

HOLY THURSDAY IS THE first day of Passover: the remembrance of Israel being freed from slavery to Egypt and the angel of death passing over the homes of Jews whose doors were marked with blood. Jesus spent Wednesday before His death warning of the trials and tribulations Israel will face before He returns. He said …

Jesus Goes to Mount of Olives

TEMPLE LEADERS ORGANIZED an ambush with the intent of placing Jesus under arrest, but it was not yet time. He evaded their trap, pronouncing harsh judgment on them. The "woes" He lists against the religious leaders contrast with the first seven blessings that introduce the Sermon on the Mount (see Matt. 5:3-9). He accused the …

The Money-Changers and the Fig Tree

PALM SUNDAY marks the triumphal entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. He entered through the Golden Gate, on the east side of the city, facing the Mount of Olives. Because of its messianic connection, this gate is to remain shut until Christ returns. Consequently, the Golden (or Eastern) Gate has remained closed for …
