Question and Answer

August 1, 2012

How many women observed the empty tomb, including all the accounts? And, in John 20:11–21 where Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene, she is not said to be afraid of Him when He calls her by name. In what seems like a contradiction, the other three Gospels (Matt. 28:10; Mark 16:8; Luke 24:5) stress the fear of those who suddenly recognized Him,...

Paul said that to die is to be with Christ “which is better by far” (Phil. 1:23). In the same epistle, Paul tells his readers that Epaphroditus had been ill “and almost died.” But, Paul added, “God had mercy on him” (Phil. 2:27). That means that God healed him and Epaphroditus recovered, right? If being in heaven would have been “better by...

Is Jesus really God? Some who I’ve spoken to have said that Jesus never said He was God. But when I read or listen to Today in the Word, you make reference to it often. What does the Bible say? Question and Answer I have received many letters challenging my assertion that Jesus is God. The letters argue that Jesus never even suggested that...

Question and Answer

February 1, 2011

When I came to Christ, I had no idea that God expected me to be holy. After a Sunday school class that talked about God's holiness the teacher said, “We are to be holy for God is holy.” I was shaken; I just feel like this is an impossibility. I never would have become a Christian if I knew the bottom line meant I had to live a holy life.

With reference to Jesus, Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation is found in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given to men, by which we must be saved.” What about people who lived before Jesus? I’m wondering about Aztecs and Eskimos who never heard a prophet or saw a line of Scripture? Question and Answer This is a frequent question...

Several years ago a member of my Sunday school class was sharing about his son who had gotten into a personal mess, but later confessed his sin to God and to those who knew of his circumstances. The father said, “I’m truly grateful now that he has confessed, because now he won’t have to pay for what he has done.” God, he said, has made everything...

I am puzzled by Jesus’ reply to the disciples when they asked why a blind man was born blind: “that the work of God might be displayed in his life” (John 9:1–3). Did Jesus mean that the miracle He was about to perform was the reason for the man’s lifelong blindness? Did God set him up, so to speak? Question and Answer Some interpreters think...

Where is it found that we should celebrate Jesus’ birthday? It seems to me that Christians ought to celebrate His death more than His birth. Question and Answer We mark the Lord’s birth every year for at least three reasons: first, Scripture gives a lot of space to it. Jesus’ birth is the subject of Old Testament prophecies, and two of the...

Jesus: Nourished by the Work of God

Jesus: Nourished by the Work of God Since the Syrian uprising began in March 2011, Lebanon has been absorbing thousands of refugees. But when many Syrians leave behind their homes and make the eighteen-hour journey on foot, they arrive in Lebanon to find inadequate shelter, food, and medical resources. In John 4, Jesus had been making a 70-mile...
