Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

John 10:22-23

22 Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. John 10:22-23 The Festival of Dedication is another name for Hanukkah. John 10 clearly records Jesus observing it, although he had some things to say about how others were observing it. I believe God intendsContinue reading “John 10:22-23”

1&2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings

Finally caught up with all the reading I was behind on in my year-long Bible reading Plan. 1&2 Samuel and 1&2 Kings is a LOT of ancient history. I know – this is the Word of God. God wants us to study this and to understand Him better through reading His word. But honestly (andContinue reading “1&2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings”

It reminded me of something that happened in first grade – which I honestly haven’t thought about since it happened. It’s a great example of children not being miniatureContinue reading “Children: Not Miniature Adults”

Acts 6-8: Stephen

I recently listened to two sermons on this section of Acts. The two sermons were very different. And both important. But as I searched the Internet for notes and comments and articles on Acts 6-8 it became evident that one of the sermons I’d heard was a pretty common way of preaching about this passageContinue reading “Acts 6-8: Stephen”


I hope it’s not a sin to skip a bunch of days in your Bible reading plan. I kept “not” reading Judges. I got so far behind. I finally decided I either need to catch up or give up. I tried catching up and I remembered why I had such a hard time reading Judges.Continue reading “Judges”
