Genesis: A Great Promise

by Pastor Timothy

Note: This Old Testament Survey Study #3 is from an ongoing Bible Study series through the Old Testament. Genesis is the book of beginnings. God reveals Himself in this book as the Creator of all things. We find in this book the first man, the first woman, the first family, the first sin, the first […]

El Panorama General del Antiguo Testamento

by Pastor Timothy

¿Por qué el Antiguo Testamento? Lavados ceremoniales. Costumbres inusuales (para los oídos modernos). Detalles arriesgados de pecado escandaloso. Miles y miles de sangrientos sacrificios de animales. Poesía y canciones. Historias raras. Largos libros proféticos con imágenes extrañas. Largas (¡dijimos largas!) Genealogías. Pero, tenga la seguridad de que hay un gran propósito en esta colección de […]

The Big Picture of the Old Testament

by Pastor Timothy

Note: The following is from our Wednesday Bible studies. Why the Old Testament? Ceremonial washings. Unusual (to modern ears) customs. Risqué details of scandalous sin.  Thousands upon thousands of bloody animal sacrifices. Poetry and songs. Rare stories. Long prophetic books with strange imagery. Long (did we say long!) genealogies. But, rest assured there is great […]

Nahum: Consuelo de un Dios Celoso

by Pastor Timothy

Nahum ha sido llamado la secuela de Jonás. El tema de los dos libros proféticos cortos involucra al imperio Asirio y su gran capital, Nínive. Jonás destacó la misericordia de Dios hacia un pueblo cruel cuando se arrepintieron de sus pecados y clamaron a Dios por misericordia. Sin embargo, Nahum enfatiza el juicio justo que […]

Nahum: Comfort From a Jealous God

by Pastor Timothy

Nahum has been called the sequel to Jonah. The subject matter of both short prophetic books involves the Assyrian empire and its great capital, Nineveh. Jonah highlighted the mercy of God towards a cruel people as they repented of their sins and cried out to God for mercy. Nahum, however, emphasizes the righteous judgment that […]

A Lesson In Compassion

by Pastor Timothy

After all the mercy that God had shown Jonah, we find in chapter 4 that Jonah needs mercy yet again. Is this just common to Jonah? Hardly. Every believer has need of God’s mercy and longsuffering again and again and again. Having said that, it is still rather jarring to find where Jonah’s heart and […]

¿Cuál es la señal de Jonás?

by Pastor Timothy

La última vez mencionamos que traeriamos un último articulo sobre la misericordia de Dios en Jonás. Permítame saltar a este tema de Jonás, con la esperanza de devolver la próxima vez la entrega final de la misericordia. “Entonces respondieron algunos de los escribas y los fariseos, diciendo: Maestro, deseamos ver de ti una señal. Pero […]

What is the Sign of Jonah? 

by Pastor Timothy

Last time we mentioned we would bring one last post on God’s mercy in Jonah. Allow me to jump ahead to this theme of Jonah, in hopes of returning the final installment on mercy next time.  “Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. […]

La Misericordia De Dios En Jonás

by Pastor Timothy

En nuestro último articulo, notamos la soberanía de Dios como uno de los temas destacados en el libro de Jonás. Siempre debemos recordar que las Escrituras nos revelan la naturaleza y el carácter de Dios. Dios es conocido, entendido y adorado correctamente a través de la revelación dada de Él en las Escrituras. El libro […]

God Mercifully Spreads The Good News

by Pastor Timothy

We noted in our last post that God, in mercy, ran after Jonah when Jonah was fleeing from God’s command. God overtook him, saved him from drowning and restored his soul. The same Jonah who was running away from the presence of the Lord was now a man who was earnestly seeking God’s face. God’s […]
