Mark 6:22 – Herodias’ Daughter

It’s one thing for someone to reject Jesus, but another thing altogether when that person causes another to sin.  Due to the choices one makes, in a sense, it’s easy to see how progressive sin brings him (or her) to a very bad place.  During the Exodus, Yahweh dealt with this downward slide of iniquity…

Mark 1:34 – Demonic Origins

The question arises, “Where did demons come from?”  In reading the Bible, there seems to be no origin for these nasty beings; all of a sudden they appear to do Satan’s bidding and torment mankind.  The reality is that there is a clear and rational explanation, but it all has to do with interpreting Scripture…

Leviticus 18:22 – Abomination

In this day and age, this essay cannot be written and the words spoken, otherwise, the wrath of the woke crowd is aroused.  Too bad.  Let’s talk about what the Bible says about depravity. Leviticus 18 is a forbidden chapter by anyone who desires to live according to the gospel of self and not the…

Matthew 26:8 – They Were Indignant

On first reading, in suggesting the connection I propose in this commentary, you may say, “What?”  But, hear me out.  What if the original fall of the sons of God (bene Elohim) foreshadowed the indignation of the disciples when the woman anointed Jesus with oil and the subsequent action by Judas? The first rebel was…

Matthew 22:29-30 – The Nature of Angels

So, what is it?  Do angels marry or not?  In the verses we’re discussing today, it would seem that they don’t. The Sadducees have confronted Jesus about the issue of marriage and divorce.  These are the seemingly secular religious rulers, if we can call them that.  They were part of the Jewish Sanhedrin along with…

Exodus 23:32-33 – The Snare of Other Gods

From the very first when God called His children out of Egypt, the most important commandment He gave was that they should follow no other gods but Him.  This was so important that Yahweh enshrined this ordinance as the first two of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:3-4: “You shall have no other gods before…

Genesis 35:9-11 & Matthew 11:20-24 – Which God?

There’s a deep connection between Genesis 35:9-11 and Matthew 11:20-24.  In Genesis we read: “God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him. And God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; no longer shall your name be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name.” So he called his name…

Matthew 10:25 – Rejecting Jesus

Upon Jesus calling His disciples, He soon sends them out to the towns and cities of Israel so as to gather her “lost sheep” (Matthew 10:6).  He instructs the men to proclaim the Good News by telling everyone that “the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 10:7).  Jesus gives them the power and authority…

Genesis 6:1-5 – Sons of God

Genesis 6:1-5 is one of the most fascinating and troubling passages in the entire Bible.  Some people want to make what is conveyed here an entirely human scenario, but that completely misses what’s really going on and the larger Biblical narrative. The text tells us that the sons of God (bene Elohim – Hebrew) took…
