    based on 6 ratings

    The crowd cried for Jesus to be crucified and put to death but requested the killer, Barabbas be released in the streets. The truth was put to death but sin and death was released to the streets.

    “Give Us Barabbas” Intro: As we study God’s Word we find particular people who are mentioned briefly and we soon pass over their record without fully gleaning the full significance of their rolls nor their application for us today. We should be very careful to remember that God has chosen to more

  • We Are Healed To Serve

    Contributed by J. Yeargin on Nov 7, 2005
    based on 8 ratings

    I have met some believers who are convinced that sickness should never take place in the life of any believer. Some Christians will even go so far as to judge another Christian who is faced with an illness. I don’t claim to have all of the answers t

    Introduction: Wouldn’t it be nice to go through this life without ever having suffered any illness. I have never met anyone who has done this. There have been many who were known to be “as healthy as a horse” or (seemed to be) “never sick a day in their life”. But even those will face an more

    based on 1 rating

    This is a study of James based on 12 Ordinary Men. It has a lot of added notes and scripture.

  • It’s Not Supposed To Be That Way

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Jul 14, 2010

    Following God’s will means going to unexpected places and doing unexpected things. But if we are willing to follow Christ’s boundary-breaking call, Christ will meet us there, and he will prepare us to serve!

    Much like the lawyer’s question and the parable of the Good Samaritan last week, this story of Mary and Martha I’m sure is quite familiar to many of us. This scene of Mary and Martha hosting Jesus in their home in Bethany has gained much popularity among Christians in our modern, very busy world. more

    based on 8 ratings

    God decrees the death of his Son for the death his people deserve to die.

    Scripture Introduction One way to get at the significance of the story of redemption is to observe the contrasts which God builds into Bible events.
