Shepherds Conference

John 1:1-3 

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (LaHabra, CA: The Lockman Foundation, 1995), Jn 1:1–3.

Dr. Michael Reeves gave a phenomenal message today at Shepherds’ Conference 2017. Some of the key exhilarating truths that lifted my soul were the titles of Christ: the eternal Word and the eternal Son.  The Word shows the position of Christ.  He is ontologically equal with the Father.  The Son shows the unique relationship He has with the Father.  As for the Word, He created the world.  This is Christ’s world. Secular thinking is acidic to this thinking. The heavens can’t help but to exalt Christ because they are His craftsmanship. Instead of having wandering minds, our mind is harnessed when we depend upon God.

Richard Taylor. Interpreting Apocalyptic Literature: An Exegetical Handbook.  Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, July 27th, 2016. 208 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This book is part of the Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis series published by Kregel Publications.  Previously I have enjoyed the work on interpreting Old Testament historical books by Robert Chisholm very much and was looking forward to this volume largely because of it.  I was also excited for this volume since apocalytpic literary forms is one of the hardest to interpret in the Old Testament and as a preacher it would be helpful to think through critically and be equipped in handling passages of Scripture like the book of Daniel.

I’m not a guy that would watch the Oscars and personally I could care less since most of Hollywood elites seems to be in la-la land.  The host this year was also Jimmy Kimmel which I personally think is an example of a fool with jokes that’s not funny, cheap laughs and too frequently down right mean. But my phone last night got an usually rare news notification concerning the most awkward moment in Oscar’s history which as many of you know, was about the mistake in the announcement of who got the award of Best Picture.

Seeing this made me think about how I’m grateful that the Bible is without error or mistake.  It is God’s Word and is always true.  The Bible is inerrant.  If you want to learn more check out the Inerrancy Summit Seminar Sessions Audios and also my Series of posts responding to attack on Biblical Inerrancy.

bible-contradiction-what-did-the-centurion-call-jesus-when-he-died

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What did the Centurion call Jesus when he died?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

The Son of God.

When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” (Mark 15:39)

Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54)

A righteous man.

Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent.”
(Luke 23:47)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
