In Exodus 12, God commands the people of Israel to hold a yearly feast remembering their slavery in Egypt and God's miraculous deliverance of the entire nation after the death of all of the firstborn of Egypt. This short teaching on the significance and simplicity of the "mechanism" of the Passover meal was given to a group of students at Texas A&M University in April 2019.

Lord Jesus, you are that promised "seed" from Genesis 3, you are the Christ, that long-expected king from David's line as you promised to him in 2 Samuel 7, you are that prophet like Moses that will turn Israel back to the Lord their God, and you are Adonai, the very God of Israel made flesh.
As another year passes and I slowly succumb to your curse on humanity to return to the dust from which you made us, give me still more wisdom and understanding of the bigger story that my little life is a part of. Would you give me grace to be faithful to you through the joy and pain, the...

The Bible recounts a single story—one that began at creation, encompasses our lives today, and will continue till Christ’s return and beyond. In this book, Jim Hamilton introduces us to this narrative, helping us understand the worldview of the biblical writers so that we can read the Old and New Testaments as those authors intended.
How can biblical authority be a reality for those shaped by the modern world? This book treats the First World as a mission field, offering a unique perspective on the relationship between the gospel and current society by presenting an outsider's view of contemporary Western culture.
In the time of Nicholas Copernicus, the heavens and all that was in them revolved around the earth. This was not a belief that needed to be argued, it was simply an observable fact. People could see it with their own eyes. Scientists, mathematicians, and philosophers affirmed it. Religious doctrine did too. There was, however, one small problem. The planets, though insignificant in size, moved in continual defiance of the enshrined system. By challenging the system and finding the true center, Copernicus began a revolution that transformed life on earth. This book is about a similar...
What was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text. Authors Brandon O'Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text.
Modern assumptions about the apostle Paul is that he abandoned aspects of Jewish living after his discovery of Jesus as the Messiah. This has led to much anti-Semitism and a rift between Judaism and "Christianity", something that Paul never intended. This collection of essays from well-respected contributors explore the implications of reading Paul’s instructions in his letters as aimed at Christ-following non-Jews, teaching them how to live in ways consistent with Judaism while remaining non-Jews.
A day is coming when Jesus, or perhaps better understood as Yeshua of Nazareth, will return to the earth and establish an everlasting kingdom in Jerusalem. In this book, Joel Richardson paints a picture of what Jesus' coming earthly reign will be like. He strongly opposes the notion that gentile Christians have "replaced" the Jews and Israel as the people of promise. Joel also details the history of anti-Semitism within the church from the very beginning in what may be the most thorough repudiation of what has become known as “Replacement Theology,” or, as Richardson calls it, “...
