The Justice of God

July 1, 2010

God of the Nations

November 1, 2010

Theology_Matters God of the Nations The Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Kings complement 1 and 2 Samuel, which recount the rise of Israel’s first two kings, Saul and David.

The Wrath of God

September 1, 2012

Theology_Matters The Wrath of God It is rare today to hear a sermon that focuses on the wrath of God.

The God of Israel

September 1, 2016

The Nature of God

The Family of God

May 1, 2020

When my young children have a dispute, inevitably one of them will come and ask me to resolve it.
