This is for a retreat this weekend where I’ll be teaching on the topic of the Trinity and Christian life!

Purpose: In this lesson we will explore John 17:20-23 and see how the Trinity helps with Christian unity so that we would be united as a church spiritually.

  • Point 1: The result of Christian Unity
  • Point 2: Mirroring the Trinity for our Unity
  • Point 3: Means of Unity

Passage:I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:20-23)

  • The context here is Jesus’ prayer to God the Father the night He is going to die.
  • Here Jesus’ prayer is for the believers of all time and not just His immediate disciples on that night.

For this week’s “Wee-kids” Wednesdays here’s a review of a children’s book that I got from the publisher but I don’t see it on sale yet; so I linked to the author’s other similar work here and here.

Elizabeth Raum.  Crossroads in Jerusalem. Greenville, SC: BJU Press, November 14th 2019. 150? pp.

5 out of 5

Do you like the old “Choose Your own adventure?”  And do you want to read a Christian and biblical one?  If so this title is one that you should conside!  In this work the author takes us to the time of Jesus’ visit to Jerusalem.  The author is able to blend in biblical events and teachings with respectful and reverential imagination involving you as a character among the people.  She is able to write in such a way as to let you the reader choose your journey. Every choice you make changes the story. After a journey end you can go back to the crossroads and pick a different unread path.

I want to make a bite size witty ditty to make a point memorable.

For Christians the Bible should be important since it is God’s Word.

Christians should have two proper relationship to the Bible.  What are they?

Here’s a little rhyme to drive the point home:

First Christian book finished for 2020!  And finished it yesterday while waiting at the Courthouse pending for Jury Duty.

Daniel Block.  Ruth.  Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, December 15th 2015. 308 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the best technical commentary on the book of Ruth I would recommend.  If you read the book of Ruth in the Bible it is only four chapters and yet this commentary is 271 pages long (308 pages if you go by what the publishers say), filled with insights properly extrapolated from God’s Word that is exegetical in nature; that is, it is filled with grammatical and syntactical observation from the Hebrew text along with word study and exploration of a passage’s intertextuality.  An aspect of this commentary that makes it unique is the author’s use of discourse analysis.  There are many things readers will learn from God’s Word here and I was blown away with what I discover in this book that led me to worship God and Christ more!  While I have in the past enjoyed other titles in the Zondervan Old Testament Exegetical Commentary Series this one would be one that I would highly recommend.
