The Gospel according to Matthew was written by Matthew, who was a Jew by birth, and he was a tax collector for the Romans who ruled Israel at the time as an occupying force. So he would not have been looked upon with favor by his fellow Jews. When Jesus called Matthew to follow Him,…

NewLSFB398: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Revelation 17 and 18

So who is this great city, Babylon? This one who sinned greatly, caused others to sin, was rich and brought riches to those who threw in with her, and was drunk with the blood of God’s people? I don’t know. I can speculate, but I’m not going to. Today, I’m going to bring to your…
