In order to understand 2 Corinthians 3, we need to understand the story of Moses and the veil. We read in Exodus that Moses experienced the very presence of God!

Exodus 14 narrates the final act of redemption and deliverance.  The people are set free from the power of Pharaoh and begin their journey - helped by the Presence and Guidance of the Lord - toward the Promised Land.  In essence, Exodus 14 is a “visual” illustration of the salvation event in the life of the believer.  Keep reading...keep reading»»

1 Corinthians 13 is often read at wedding ceremonies, for it contains a beautiful description of love. However this is not the design of these verses. When we look at the context, we find this chapter wedged in between two chapters on spiritual gifts and how the Corinthians misused them. Keep reading...keep reading»»

In the Old Testament God supernaturally appeared to people. This is called a theophany. In Exodus 3 God appeared in a flame out of a burning bush.

In this chapter of Job we see a great and amazing contrast.  Job moves from the valley of despair to the heights of faith.  As we have been reminded in recent sermons, frailty is part of being human and it is not always an indicator of some hidden sin. Keep reading...keep reading»»

Human beings have notoriously short memories.  We are creatures of the moment and we seem naturally disinclined to remember how we came to be the people that we are.  We forget the contributions of others, the sacrifices of our forebears and the wisdom and prudence of previous generations.  In Exodus chapter 1 we read these ominous words:  Keep reading...keep reading»»

The building tension of the story of Joseph reaches a climax as his identity is finally proclaimed to his brothers. But vengeance and justice doesn't come from Joseph's hands like his brothers expected. Instead he comforts them by saying, Keep reading...keep reading»»

Much of the material covered in Mark 14 was previously encountered by the reader in Matthew 26. Scholars generally assume that Mark wrote his Gospel first under the supervision of the Apostle Peter. Mark has been associated with Peter from the earliest recollections of church history. It is assumed that he served as Peter's secretary and assistant during his pastorate in Rome.

In Job 8 we hear from Bildad, another of Job's counsellors. Like Eliphaz, Bildad's view of the world is highly proverbial. Bildad seems to lack the social graces of Eliphaz and he comes off as simplistic, dim witted and cruel. Incredibly, he says to a man whose children have just died tragically: Keep reading...keep reading»»
