Matthew, the Magi, and the Majesty of Jesus

By Jeff Pallansch | November 23, 2020

Mary, What Did You Know

By R. L. Wilson | November 20, 2020

We just don’t know a lot about Mary, the young woman who would become the mother of Jesus. We assume from historical records that she was fairly young, perhaps 14 or 15 years old, since that was the age when most young girls became engaged.

Anna: Witness to the Messiah

What are we really asking for in this final petition in the Lord’s Prayer when we say Deliver Us from Evil? Commentators are divided between those who say this is a request for deliverance from the evils in this world, and those who say this is asking for deliverance or protection from the “Evil One,” that is, Satan.
