Ray Comfort. What Did Jesus Do?: A Call to Return to the Biblical Gospel.  Bartlesville, OK: Genesis Publishing Group, July 25th 2005. 176 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a good book on how to evangelize.  This is written by Ray Comfort, who is quite an evangelist himself.  I love Ray Comfort’s own personal example of being an evangelist.  He wrote this book in an manner that is easy to understand and also practical.  Today’s contemporary church is often filled with bad doctrines and light on the Gospel so there’s a crisis with how Christians evangelize today in a manner that is unbiblical and unfaithful to God and the Gospel.  So this work is much needed.  I personally got this book as part of a discipleship tool with some of our guys in church to train them to think not only biblically about evangelism but to live it out.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Were the disciples frightened or glad when they saw Jesus?

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

They were frightened when they saw him.

But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.” (Luke 24:37)

They were gladdened.

And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord” (John 20:20)

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

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

The Resurrection of Jesus-Why it Matters

As with many other core doctrines of Historical Orthodox Christianity, the Doctrine of the Resurrection is under assault from many quarters. Obviously, atheists and humanists discount the account of the Resurrection just like they discount all other Biblical accounts of anything. We are not surprised by their disbelief at all, as it makes perfect sense from their worldview. Surprisingly, and more disturbingly, is the assault on the account of the Resurrection coming from supposedly “Christian” denominations and scholars. Sadly, even among the so-called Christian Church, the Resurrection is dismissed as not historically accurate, or as simply not key or important to core doctrines. Here are a couple of examples of so-called Christian theologians who promote a far less than literal account of the Resurrection.

It will not start off as wine

One of my greatest challenges is that I like to be in the know. I love to plan and to know exactly the process involved in anything I do. I like to know why, how, what and when. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is good to be informed and aware of what is going on around us. However, many times in my life I have found myself getting frustrated with God for not letting me know the nitty gritty of everything. So when I came across this particular story which I will be sharing, it sounded good but also convicting because the people involved operated on a very high level of trust and faith.

An important theme in Presuppositional apologetics is the need to evaluate things from a Christian worldview that is informed by God’s revelation.

I believe something similar to that is also helpful in evaluating what’s going on in the New Testament in light of Old Testament anticipation of prophecies.

In this post we will look at three anticipation of Jesus and the Gospel from the book of Ezekiel.

Did you know that there were believers in the Old Testament that looked forward to Christ?

This is what the Gospel of John taught.
