2 Chronicles 24:17 – Advice of the Princes

Throughout Scripture we see the good and the bad decisions that people make in their lives. Unfortunately, because of man’s sinful nature, many more poor choices come to light in the pages of the Bible. This is readily apparent in the life of King Joash of Judah. Joash was crowned king as a young child….

John 9:31 – God Listens to Him

For some reason, many people who consider themselves Christians believe they can live a carnal or secular life and still have God listen and respond to them.  In our present culture there are numerous people who go to church and live far from God, yet expect His blessings.  Who are these people?  Given the nature…

Judges 18:19 – “Keep Quiet”

What is it about so many of the priests and Levites we meet in the book of Judges?  Each one seems to be worse than the next.  Weren’t they supposed to be set apart by God for service to Him because they stood athwart the sin and evil they saw during the incident of the…

Judges 2:19 – They Turned Back

Many people consider the book of Judges the saddest in the entire Bible.  It chronicles the  persistent apostasy of Israel despite God’s continuing mercy upon His children. Yahweh had given the land of Canaan to the Israelites.  He promised He would fight for them to drive out its wicked inhabitants.  But, they had a responsibility;…

Mark 1:4 – Baptism of Repentance

Do you know what has largely been lost in these ending days of the Church Age?  Do you understand why so many are falling away and churches becoming apostate?  There’s a very simple answer. One message was preached from the beginning of the Gospels that was a necessary requirement for entering the Kingdom of Heaven. …

Leviticus 20:26 – Holy To the Lord

One of the commands that God has consistently given to His people, whether Israelites or Christ-followers, is for us to remain apart from those who are unbelievers.  This command is captured in Leviticus 20:26 where Yahweh instructs: “You shall be holy to me, for I the Lord am holy and have separated you from the…

Matthew 26:59 – Seeking False Testimony

Can you imagine the animosity the religious leaders had against Jesus?  One could definitively say that His Words certainly didn’t tickle their itching ears.  Quite the opposite.  Every Word Jesus uttered must have grated on them and aroused their sensibilities against Him.  To relate these hateful thoughts and feelings to current events, think about how…

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…
