The story of Jesus' first miracle is found in the gospel of John, chapter 2. The wedding scene is the first time that we hear about Jesus changing water into wine during his ministry (John 2:1-11). The Greek word translated as "belief" in the New Testament comes from two words that mean "to be persuaded." This miracle has far-reaching implications for what it means to believe in Jesus.
Cain and Abel were the first two sons of Adam and Eve. Cain was a farmer, while Abel was a shepherd. Both brothers made sacrifices to God, but God accepted only Abel's offering. This made Cain jealous of his brother and angry that God would accept someone else's sacrifice before his own. So he killed Abel—and this is why we're not supposed to be jealous.
Reading scripture is the single greatest privilege of any one who follows the man who hung between two criminals. When going through the Bible, what is the longest chapter? Why is it so long? These are the questions for today's post.
Moses was a famous prophet who led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt. He is also known as one of the most humble men on earth. Moses married Zipporah and had two wives, each of whom was a sister to his first wife.
Marriage is a sacred relationship. It's the foundation on which families are built and the cornerstone of our society. It's also one of the most important decisions you'll ever make in your life. If you're going to get married, it's important to know what it means to be equally yoked with your spouse—both in terms of religion and personality traits.
My oldest son has just now entered High school and recently he had a discussion centered around cussing. For him, as he has gotten older, there has been months (if not years) where he wouldn’t hear a cuss word. Now, the opposite seems true. He cannot go a day without hearing one. For this reason I sought to look for Biblical answers to a very common question, and today I want to share that knowledge.
