Old Testament

Fulfilling God’s Message

By R. L. Wilson / November 30, 2020

Many years ago I taught a Bible study entitled “Christ BC” (Christ Before Christ). It was a beautiful study of Jesus found in 12 or 13 people and events in the Old Testament. I was reminded of that study today as I read a challenge to look for the phrase “this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet,” or similar phrases in the Gospel of Matthew. Mind officially blown.

How Should Christians View Israel?

By Dr. Dillon Burroughs / December 18, 2019

By Jeff Pallansch / November 2, 2018

Who Was the Serpent in the Garden of Eden?

By Dr. Dillon Burroughs / October 18, 2018

In Genesis 3:1-2 we read, “Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Did God really say, “You must not eat from any tree in the garden”?’” Who was this serpent or snake in the Garden of Eden?

What Day Is the Sabbath Supposed to Be On?

By Dr. Norman Geisler / July 12, 2018

This commandment states that the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is the day the Lord selected for rest and worship. However, in the New Testa­ment, the Christian church began to worship and rest on the first day of the week, Sunday.

Why Would God Say: “I Have Hated Esau…”?

By Rev. Sam Harris / June 5, 2018

Several months ago, you answered a question on things that God “hates” based on Proverbs 6:16. That was most enlightening to me and helped me understand this passage more fully. Recently, I was reading in Malachi 1:2-3, and it has, in part, these words of God: “I have loved Jacob; but I have hated Esau….”

By Dr. Norman Geisler / May 15, 2018

Indeed, the Bible speaks of it as an actual place on earth that abounded with trees, plants, and animals. It had rivers and a gate (Genesis 2-3). However, critics point out that there is no archaeological evidence that such a place existed. They conclude that the story of Eden is just a myth…
