Hannah is a woman who wanted a son after having been thus far unable to bear a child. God granted her prayer.
We have a very special guest reader today. James Cooper, my co host on the Lifespring! Why Christmas Show, reads the book of Ruth.
Ruth is a short book that is a marvelous story of loyalty, devotion and love.
We conclude the book of Hebrews. Among other subjects, the apostle Paul lists what I call “The Faithful Hall of Fame”.
Paul explains how the old covenant required repeated sacrifices (that did not bring permanent forgiveness), but in the new covenant, Jesus’ sacrifice was “once for all”.
Paul compares the Levitical law and priesthood to the New Covenant and Christ’s priesthood of Melchizedek.
Some intriguing episodes from Israel’s past, including a story very similar to CSI: Las Vegas (or Miami or New York)!
Finishing the book of Judges and beginning the New Testament book of Hebrews.
We find out the consequences of the murder of the concubine, near the end of Judges, and then the book ends with a surprising solution to a problem created by the carrying out of the consequences.
The book of Hebrews begins with the apostle Paul offering a wonderful exposition of the diety and humanity of Jesus.
Samson and Delilah. Do you remember the story as it actually was? Where was Samson’s strength? Are you sure?
Today we have a guest reader. Russ Blanchett helps to make this a “family” Bible by reading the chapters for us today. Thanks, Russ!
