Man of Sorrows

November 1, 2016

Theology_Matters Man of Sorrows Some Christian artists today portray Jesus as a jaunty, grinning figure. Posters, paintings, and figurines depict Jesus as smiling or even laughing. None of the Gospel accounts describe Jesus laughing, though many scholars note that His parables reflect an underlying sense of humor. Jesus was no jokester,...

Jesus: Son of Man Every year, actor Will Smith returns to Philadelphia to support nonprofits that work against violence.

Truly God and Truly Man

December 1, 2019

Theology_Matters Truly God and Truly Man Jesus' story did not begin with His birth in Bethlehem. John 1:14 indicates that before He "became flesh and made his dwelling among us," Jesus was "with God" and He "was God" (John 1:1).

April 8, 2012

The Old Man on Trial One of paganism’s distinguishing marks is the desire to control or manipulate gods and nature. Yesterday we looked at the unusual story of the Sheep Gate pool (5:2), where diseased people would try to receive healing by hustling into the waters.

A Different Kind of Man

December 20, 2013

A Different Kind of Man Take a moment to recall visual images you’ve seen depicting Jesus. Perhaps a gentle teacher, explaining things to His curious followers? Or a tender shepherd, cradling a lamb? Especially at this time of year, a chubby infant swaddled in a manger? We rarely see a rough-hewn carpenter from Galilee or a defiant man confronting...

Jesus, the Son of Man

March 27, 2016

Jesus, the Son of Man Warehouses and restaurants require workers to wear closed-toe shoes. Some human resources policies prohibit coworkers from dating one another.
