For this week’s “Wee-kids” Wednesdays here’s a review of a Christian children’s book.

 

Devon Provencher. Jesus.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, February 7th 2019.  22 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Looking for a book on defining the theological terms concerning Jesus but for little kids?  This is what this board book for kids tries to accomplish.  It is a part of the Big Theology for Little Hearts series published by Crossway.  The series tries to take “big ideas” from the Scripture and give a concise definition and illustrations to help kids between ages 1-5 understand the terms.  What a fascinating concept!

A recent troll said to me:

Jesus himself said he wasn’t God! Mark 10:18 & Luke 18:19

Both Mark 10:18 and Luke 18:19 parallel each other.

This is what Mark 10:18 states:

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

This is what Luke 18:19 states:

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

This is how she would argue it:

Jesus denies he’s good: “no one is”

Only God is good

Ergo Jesus isn’t God

Does this show Jesus is not God?  I don’t think so.  Let me explain.

If you have followed our blogs for years, you know it’s that time again….I’ll be getting ready again to prepare to teach and train pastors overseas sometime in Spring 2020.  I can’t disclose the destination.  As usual I’ll be going somewhere where I won’t have stable internet access and also other restrictions.

Would you want to “keep the fort down” for this blog while I am away by writing a guest post that I can schedule and also interacting with those who comment on the blog for the day it is posted?

I’m taking requests right now and asking for submission by sometime in March.  Posts will have to be biblically sound (obviously) and can be on the topic of the Bible, theology, apologetics, Christian worldview, etc.

Drop us a comment and let us know!

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some time ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:10.  Here is my translation:

“μακάριοι οἱ δεδιωγμένοι ἕνεκεν δικαιοσύνης,

Blessed are those who are persecuted on account of righteousness 

ὅτι αὐτῶν ἐστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν. ”

because the kingdom of heaven is theirs

Here are some observations:
