Holy Week: The Problem of Three Days and Three Nights

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Most people assume that Jesus died on “Good Friday” and rose from the dead on “Easter,” Sunday morning. Since Jesus said He would rise, “the third day” some count part of Friday as one day, Saturday as the second, and part of Sunday as the third. But when we take a closer look at the Scriptures, we find that Jesus spoke of the time between His burial and resurrection as, “three days and three nights.” From Friday afternoon until Sunday morning is not three days and three nights! What then is the correct explanation?

Genius in the Garden

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. Genesis chapter one describes the six days of creation where God declared it to be “very good.” Romans 1:20 tells us that since the creation of the world God has provided fallen mankind with an understanding of the perfection of that early and perfect world. What then are the evidences? It is believed that one of those God-given evidences of the perfection of the first man, Adam, is that rare breed of individual we call “genius” and particularly the autistic savant. The latter are a complete enigma to today’s world-view based upon evolution.

The Making of Eve & the Fall

Author: 
Ian Taylor

1. Review. Adam was created on Friday afternoon of the first week. In The Creation of Adam we saw that Adam was trichotomous, that is, consisted of three parts: the soul and the body, each of which was given life by God’s Spirit of Life. [Genesis 2:7]. This is not the Holy Spirit but a part of God that exists in every living thing in the animal kingdom from the amoeba to Man.

The Doctrine of Predestination

Author: 
Ian Taylor

Webster’s Dictionary defines predestination as: The doctrine that God in consequence of His foreknowledge of all events infallibly guides those who are destined for salvation. The New Testament Greek actually uses the word PROORISEN translated as “predestined” four times [Romans 8, verses 29 and 30 and Ephesians 1, verses 5 and 11]. However, there are a number of other verses in the Old Testament as well as the New that express a similar meaning in other words. The following Scriptures relate to predestination:

THERE WASN'T ANY INN

Author: 
Gordon Mellish

At the time of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, Rome ruled most of the world. This required lots of men and lots of money and salt. Soldiers were often paid with salt. Octavian was the king of Rome at that time, and he was given the title of Augustus as an honor. Caesar, Kaiser and Khan all mean king, so we know him as Caesar Augustus. And so, to get money to pay his soldiers, he taxed everyone in his empire. To ensure complete compliance and have good records, he ordered all Jews to register in their tribal areas.

The idea that there is something called chance is so firmly rooted in our culture that even Christians speak of it as real. Is the idea of chance taught in the Bible? Is there such a thing as “chance”? Let’s see.

The Religion of Evolution

People find many different reasons for opposing creationism.  Some are simply ignorant of the scientific and biblical points which support the creationist worldview.  Very often people really believe that evolution has been proven as fact.  But in the end, those who refuse the truth are adopting evolution as an alternate religion to the Bible.

What Is Truth?

Author: 
Pastor Paul Bartz

1. The gospel of John stresses the themes of truth and light in the context of Christ as creating Son of God and Savior of mankind from sin, death and the devil. In stressing this theme John also contrasts truth and lie. Jesus' words about the devil being the father of lies, untruth being a part of his nature, are in John 8:44. How does this verse contrast with John 18:38-39?

Why Oppose Creation?

Those who refuse to accept the truth of creation are adopting evolution because it offers an alternate religion to the Bible. When we Christians realize why people oppose the creationist view of the world, and how their thinking works, we will be better equipped to speak to them about God’s concerns for them in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Using Our Minds to Discover God's World

Discovery and learning are highly valued in our age. Often Christians are seen as being against discovery and learning. And, with evolution and the other claims of our day which seem to run against Christianity, sometimes we are led to believe that we should oppose these values.
