Daniel 8:1-27

I am not sure if I feel more like a sports commentator or a Bible preacher! Why? Daniel has another vivid and descriptive vision. This time it’s the Bucks against the Rams with a surprise ending! This chapter, like Daniel chapter 7, is full of action. The ram seems unstoppable, but wait—out of nowhere comes…

Daniel 7:1-28

If you could know the future, would you want to? Before you answer, think about it. Maybe you would want to clarify your answer based on whether it’s a good or bad future! “Yes, if such and such is true…“—or “no, unless…” You get the idea. Now hash that out in your mind! If you…

Daniel 2:31-49

We left Daniel standing in the presence of the Nebuchadnezzar, having announced that he knows the dream and the interpretation. Can you feel the suspense? What was the dream? What does it mean? Daniel tells the king his dream and then tells him what it means. I don’t want to give away too much, but I can tell you the dream…

Daniel 2:1-30

The chapter is just too long and too important to speed through.  It is one of the most amazing prophetic passages in the whole Bible! The chapter starts with a very troubling dream. By the end of the chapter Daniel and the others have been promoted and the mighty king of the Babylonian empire is acknowledging Daniel’s…

Daniel 1:1-21

As we begin our study in the book of Daniel, I have had the opportunity to spend time pre-reading through the book and thinking about the man, Daniel; he’s an amazing guy!  Humble, gentle, courageous, stable. He is uprooted from family and neighborhood and culture and thrust into a new life of servitude in a…

Christmas Eve 2017: Isaiah 9

This Christmas Eve, we will look at one of the most well-known passages regarding Jesus connected with Christmas. “For unto us a Child is born, and unto us a Son is given.” This familiar quote from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah is never quoted in the New Testament! Is that surprising? How do we know…

Acts 21:1-14

In Acts 21, Paul is finishing up his missionary journey, making several hops as he is determined to go towards Jerusalem, staying with believers along the way. He has already been warned about what awaits him in Jerusalem, but along the way even the people of the churches beg him not to go and more…

Mark 13:1-13

Entering Mark chapter 13, Jesus’s attention is drawn to the beauty of Herod’s temple complex and He responds with a shocking prediction: “not one stone shall be left upon another” (v. 2). Of course this gets the disciple’s attention and they want to know the “when” and the signs that would come before this. This…

Mark 11:1-26

As we enter the final week of Jesus’s ministry before the cross, Mark chapter 11 opens with the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling Old Testament prophecies. Jesus cleanses the temple in this passage (for the second time) and also curses a fig tree in an unusual story recorded here in…
