John 19:38 – Secretly for Fear

Immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus, two men showed their allegiance to and faith in Him. They received permission from Pilate to remove His body from the cross and to place it in a tomb.  The one man, Joseph of Arimathea, had not previously been mentioned in Scripture.  We know from Luke 23:50-51 and Mark…

Luke 9:57-62 – Costly Faith

Don’t worry, I don’t plan to make a career out of writing about Q and the various quandaries that have arisen from those who follow, or conversely, dislike him.  Once again I thought I was finished with this series, but after spending a couple hours mowing the grass weeds—just me, the mower, the green stuff,…

Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

In Matthew 19:30, Jesus tells his disciples: “But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.” This leads me to the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard in Matthew 20:1-16. Jesus tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven is like this situation:  A landowner hires a number…
