    Best summed up by a D.A. Carson quote: ¡§Jesus does not merely bring his Father¡¦s message; Jesus is the message, He is the Word.¡¨

    Let's understand the context¡KJesus has just claimed to be the ¡§Light of the world,¡¨ and His critics are outraged at such audacity.

    Well (no surprise), the Mayan apocalypse didn’t happen, but let’s talk about the real one. I heard a prominent minister say with great conviction--that with all the wickedness in the world, the breakdown of society, natural disasters, and the turmoil in the Middle East--Jesus is ...read more
