We’re taking a week off of our Bible Reading Challenges, which seems appropriate, as we’re two-thirds of the way through. Next week we’ll turn a page–a very significant page, from the Old Testament to the New.

Even as the remnant is being drawn back to Israel, Daniel is God’s voice to […]

It’s a moment of extraordinary joy and pride for the Israelites, and it will serve as the center of worship for the next 400 years. Solomon, […]
THE KINGS: David’s Fall David sees something he wants. Something he really, really wants. And now we see writ large why, though he is called a man after God’s own heart, he isn’t the king the Israelites really want. So, what’s your Bathsheba? And who is your Nathan?
