Christ’s 40 Commandments by Renee Valverde Wagenblatt

"Christ's 40 Commandments" is a topical listing from the teachings of Jesus in the four Gospels. The "40 Commandments," as the topical listing is designated, is given variously in three sections: an alphabetical listing, a listing with one verse for each of the "Commandments" from Matthew, and a listing of the "Commandments" with a compilation of verses from the four Gospels.

Whoever Believes In Him

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) Every time I have heard a denominational preacher teach the false doctrine of "faith only" salvation, they always quote John 3:16 as their proof text. Even though the verse doesn't say, "whoever [only] believes in Him," that is how they use it. Not only do they insert a "faith only" definition where the verse doesn't say it, they are also … [Read more...]

The Author And Finisher Of Our Faith

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1, 2). We think of Jesus in many ways. Of course we think of Him primarily as … [Read more...]

Jesus, The Fulfillment Of Prophecy

In Luke 24:13-27, we read of two disciples of Christ on their way to Emmaus. Luke tells us this was the first day of the week (24:1, 13) and that it was the same day that the tomb in which Jesus had been laid following His death was found to be empty (24:3, 13). As they walked they discussed these events. Along the way they encountered what they supposed to be a stranger and discussed these matters with Him. It is obvious from the response Jesus gave to there account that they expressed an … [Read more...]
