The Light of the Gospel

John 12:35, “The light is among you for a little longer. Walk whilst you have the light, lest darkness overtake you.” Thus, the Gospel must be perpetually proclaimed. Not just from the pulpit, but the proclamation of the Gospel continues even after the sermon has ended, and it never stops. For we live in a sinful, […]

It’s Not Okay, But I Forgive You

Marriage, when based on God’s Word, serves so many wonderful functions. It is is the foundation of the familial unit, which is the foundation of our society. It is also a reflection of Christ’s relationship with His bride, the church.  “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife […]

The First and the Last

Matthew 20:16, “So the last will be first, and the first last.” A difficult text to interpret. But when put in its proper context of the labourers in the vineyard (vv. 1-15), perhaps it’s not too difficult (indeed, all verses must be interpreted in their given context, otherwise it makes no sense and we become unfaithful […]

The Epic of Gilgamesh

Translator: Benjamin R. Foster Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company         Commentary Among the lessor known epics of our world is a piece called the Epic of Gilgamesh or simply Gilgamesh.

Galatians and Colossians: The Water Continues

Here, I continue my examination of the Scriptures and what they have to say regarding Baptism. This time we examine texts from Galatians and Colossians in a longer piece. Galatians 3:24-27 ὥστε ὁ νόμος παιδαγωγὸς ἡμῶν γέγονεν εἰς Χριστόν, ἵνα ἐκ πίστεως δικαιωθῶμεν ἐλθούσης δὲ τῆς πίστεως οὐκέτι ὑπὸ παιδαγωγόν ἐσμεν. Πάντες γὰρ υἱοὶ θεοῦ […]

An Advocate with God

1 John 2:1, If anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. Thus, any other advocate before the Father who is not Jesus Christ the Son of God is inadequate. He alone advocates for us before the Father. No saint who has gone before us, not even Mary herself, can […]

Secure in Christ

Romans 8:38-39, I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Who is Paul writing to here? Not […]

A Life of the Cross

2 Timothy 2:11-12, The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him. Prosperity gospel heretics claim God has promised a prosperous material life in this world, and lo: people believe them! We are promised prosperity in the eternal life […]

Error 404: God Not Found

Error 404 One of my favourite motifs to study that appear throughout the Scriptures is that of thirst. The Psalms capture it beautifully, “As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God” (Psalm 42:1-2)? Perhaps what […]
