The Gift of Prophecy in the New Testament and Today
Price: Free! Words: 7,730. Language: English. Published: August 19, 2019. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Studies / Prophecy
“Where there is no vision the people perish.” In my journey I heard many church leaders talking about the need for vision. From what I could tell that meant, our next best idea. I was shocked, then, to discover that a better translation of that verse might be, “Where there are no prophets, the people cast off restraint.” Is vision our ideas, or God’s?

Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 169,560. Language: English. Published: November 9, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Commentary / New Testament
John’s Gospel is unique. He alone reports on Jesus’ attendance at the three Jewish pilgrim festivals–Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot. He even reports on Jesus’ attendance at Dedication (Hanukkah). John’s Jesus is an observant Jew. Understanding the Jewish context, therefore, gives us greater understanding of the nature and purpose of Jesus’ ministry. I wrote this commentary to illustrate this

The God of Abraham Praise - A Short Course in Christian Belief
Price: Free! Words: 35,530. Language: English. Published: July 1, 2011. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christianity
A short course in the Christian faith that is orthodox in content but novel in presentation since it sets the life and ministry of Messiah Jesus within the context of Jewish belief and practice. Jesus was a practicing Jew. Both Christians and Jews tend to ignore this fact and so fail to fully understand or appreciate his life and ministry. This course is my attempt to better understand.

A journal with reflections covering an Episcopal priest's 28 day sabbatical in the Israel. Traveling alone and on foot most of the time, I spent 3 weeks in Jerusalem and 1 in Galilee. I also visited Bethlehem, Herodian, Qumran, Masada, and Beit Shean. I didn't find Jesus there. I had brought him with me and I felt he showed me around this place that was his earthly home.
