  • The Parable Treasure And Pearl / I Surrender All

    Contributed by J Jeffrey Smead on Jul 28, 2011
    based on 406 ratings
     | 73,108 views

    What, then, do the parables teach? Church fathers such as Irenaeus and Augustine identified the treasure and the Pearl with Christ. The recent convert to Christianity says exactly the same thing: "I found Christ." Yes, it seems like we did find Christ.

    In his series of seven parables in Chapter 13, Matthew is quite elaborate ....... on the first two, providing an interpretation for each. The other five are shorter and more pointed in content. The parables of the hidden treasure and of the pearl consists of two sentences each. And in ...read more

  • Is The New Testament Reliable Series

    Contributed by David Dewitt on Apr 3, 2004
    based on 27 ratings
     | 1,496 views

    The New Testament is the best source of historical information from the time period of Jesus and it stands the test of scutiny. Therefore it is not only reliable it is the most reliable document of its kind!

    Is the New Testament a reliable source of information? The four gospels (Matthew, mark, Luke and John) give us a biography for the life of Jesus and they provide us with a wealth of information. One statement that I heard just recently is that the gospels were written as a way to communicate faith ...read more
