Jesus: Son of Man Every year, actor Will Smith returns to Philadelphia to support nonprofits that work against violence. Last year, he and his son returned to applaud the efforts of a program helping teens in underprivileged communities. When movie stars visit their hometowns, they usually make headlines.

April 11, 2015

Blind Man: Do you believe in the Son of Man? John Newton, the man converted from being the captain of a slave ship to becoming a preacher of the gospel, was inspired by the key verse from our passage today.

The Old Man on Trial

April 8, 2012

The Old Man on Trial One of paganism’s distinguishing marks is the desire to control or manipulate gods and nature.

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?

Surprised by Jesus: A Man Healed Recent studies say that pessimists tend to be more satisfied with events in their lives than their optimistic counterparts. The reasoning is that these adherents to a “glass half empty” mindset have lower expectations for happiness or success. When negative things happen pessimists respond, “Well, I expected...

A man possessed freed at Capernaum

March 6, 2012

A man possessed freed at Capernaum Few modern experiences provide the same level of frustration as trying to call a customer-service number. You first have to navigate what’s called a phone tree or menu: "Press 1 for accounts, press 2 for billing, press 3 for returns, press 4 for customer satisfaction . . ."
