    The Father does and says all He does by His Son?

    Dear PB I am reading an interesting book (written by a local, hence South African, preacher), titled "The Wonder of Jesus in the Old Testament," given to me by a friend, whom I am not sure is reformed. I understand the view that the Angel of the Lord may be/probably is Jesus. What I am...

    Parable of the Sower Interpretation

    I have been reading through Matthew in my morning devotionals, and this morning I was reading the Parable of the Sower. I had taken a class on the life and teachings of Jesus three years ago, and I was reminded of a document we were assigned to read on the parables (which I still have on my...

    Questions About Prayer

    Is praying "In Jesus Name" only available for the apostles? Don't all NT saints automatically pray "through Jesus Christ" since Jesus is the mediator for all of his saints? Do our prayers have to directly be for God's glory or can we have other motives (non sinful of course)? All we have to do...

    Messianic Judaism and deity of Jesus Christ

    Someone in my family no longer believes Jesus Christ is God because of their recent belief of Messianic Judaism. According to my family member, Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and is the Son of God, but isn't God. Well, I believe there are different variations of Messianic Jews, but the Messianic...

    What is meant by Jesus facing God's Wrath?

    In what sense did Jesus take God's wrath on the Cross? It seems to me that scripture focuses more on the physical death, as Peter says, he bore our sins in His body. As I understand it the death of Christ met the requirements of God's law and is therefore propitious. But there does seem to be a...

    Exclusive Psalmody and singing Jesus' name

    One common objection against exclusive psalmody is that if we only sing the psalms we will fail to sing the “name that is above every other name” (Philippians 2:9). I believe this objection fails for a number of reasons: 1) Of the supposed hymnic fragments found in the New Testament, only...

    Was Jesus emotionally hurt when Judas betrayed him?

    The Bible tells us that Jesus knew that Judas would betray him, but does it say if he was emotionally hurt when Judas betrayed him? I figure that on the one hand he should not have been hurt since it was part of God's plan to fulfill prophecy, but on the other hand Jesus did express emotions and...

    John 21:20-24 "What is that to you? You follow me!"

    I'm curious about a particular text at the very end of John's Gospel John 21:20Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who had been reclining at table close to him and had said, "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?" 21When Peter saw him, he said to...
