Upon This Foundation: Ephesians 2:20 and the Gift of Prophecy, by Jon M. Ruthven

Upon This Foundation: Ephesians 2:20 and the Gift of Prophecy, by Jon M. Ruthven

Introduction Cessationists,1 those who argue that certain gifts of the Spirit have ceased, are increasingly using an argument-from-analogy from Paul’s epistle to the believers in Ephesus. This paper offers a biblical rebuttal to the cessationist use of Ephesians 2:20 as an argument for the cessation of prophecy, and, by extension, the other so-called “miraculous” gifts […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 4, by Kevin M. Williams

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 4, by Kevin M. Williams

“Now when He heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee” (Matthew 4:12). This verse is not, as some might think, God incarnate fleeing danger.  Rather, it is possible that this was in fulfillment of John’s words about Jesus, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). John understood, as […]

Michael Brown: Israel’s Divine Healer

Michael Brown: Israel’s Divine Healer

Israel’s Divine Healer. Michael Brown. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1995. Pp. 462. For those who believe that God miraculously heals today, this book is a decisive argument in their favor.

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 2, by Kevin M. Williams

Matthew 1:18-2:12 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows …” (Matt. 1:18). We could likely spend a lot of time debating the season of the Messiah’s birth, but we are not going to. We will not even try. Christian tradition holds to the 25th of December, a date that parallels the celebration of […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 1, by Kevin M. Williams

  Forward:  As a preparatory note, at times I will mention an “Israeli believer.” The distinction is, these are Jewish believers in Messiah Jesus who are also citizens of national Israel. The political situation in the Holy Land is one that, being recognized as a believer in Jesus can mean losing your job, your home, […]

  Have you ever read something that gave expression to a number of thoughts you have had?
