Archive for the ‘good friday’ Category

What a long week last week has been for me!  It was busy both on our blog and offline with ministry in light of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.  As readers will notice this past week we dealt with various attacks by skeptics concerning the final week of Jesus.

As a bit of a break this Sunday evening I read and reviewed a Christian children story that’s appropriate for this Resurrection Sunday which I imagine some of you would appreciate.

R.C. Sproul. The Donkey Who Carried a King.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, February 17th, 2012. 48 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

I have previously enjoyed the author’s Christian children’s book titled The Priest with Dirty Clothes.  Written by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul, I appreciated that this book was biblically solid and yet enjoyable for young ones.  My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book when I read it aloud to them.

I’ll be involved for most of Saturday with a church evangelistic outreach in light of upcoming Resurrection Sunday.  If the Lord leads you, pray for us.  I’ll be posting more later for our week’s series on answering critics concerning the final week of Jesus.

For now here’s some Messianic prophecies as presented by Dr. Phil Fernandes.

Last month Shepherd’s Conference released the audios from this incredible conference.  In light of Good Friday and also our series of posts this week concerning apologetics and the last week of Jesus I thought I share the audios from that conference pertaining to Messianic prophecies.

We continue our week’s series on skeptics’ attack on the details of the final week of Jesus.  If you have benefited from these posts drop us a comment to let us know!

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Jesus taken to Caiaphas or Annas first?

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

Caiaphas

Those who had seized Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. ” (Matthew 26:57)

They led Jesus away to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes *gathered together. ” (Mark 14:53)

Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the high priest; but Peter was following at a distance.” (Luke 22:54)

Annas

and led Him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. ” (John 18:13)

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

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

Darkness and the Glory Harris

Greg Harris. The Darkness and the Glory.  Woodlands, TX: Kress Christian Publications, November 28th, 2008. 209 pp.

This is an excellent book.  The author Greg Harris is a professor of Biblical Exposition at the Master’s Seminary and he is proof that Dispensationalists can do Biblical theology and Redemptive History and do it well.  I can only hope that with time his writings would become better known among Christians.

The subtitle of this book is “His Cup and the Glory From Gethsemane to the Ascension.”  While I enjoyed all the chapters in the book it was the first five chapters that focused on the last day of Jesus and his suffering that stood above the rest in my opinion.  I write this book review a year after I read it and after reading more books on Jesus and the Gospel my mind keeps on returning back to the first half of this book with its amazing insights Dr. Harris was able to gleam from the Scriptures surrounding the incredible work of Christ.  Harris demonstrate from Scripture that the suffering Christ had led up to the darkest moment of all when darkness descends upon the crucifixion scene and employing biblical theology Harris shows us what the darkness means (I won’t spoil it for you, it’s more than what most people think).
