God Was Good To Judah

God Was Good To Judah

Judah’s story is long, twisted and bizarre, so I will spare you the biblical references here and invite you to join me on a narrative. If you would like to read it (and I encourage you to), you will have to read it from Genesis–much of it. Rough Start Judah...

God Was Good To John

God Was Good To John

I wrote a Bible study about Revelation and I am currently working on one for John, so I have thought a lot about what it must have been like to be John. In this series I have focused mainly on people who have had a rough life but them overcome, but with John, it’s...

God Was Good To Esther

God Was Good To Esther

Most societies throughout history have been patriarchal, and ancient Israel was no different. Women certainly had value, but their opinions, like 30 inch shiny rims on a Toyota Prius, weren’t necessary. Men have long ruled the world, and most of the time they act like...

God Was Good To Paul

God Was Good To Paul

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners–of whom I am the worst. 1 Timothy 1:15 Paul wasn’t kidding and he wasn’t being cute. Blinded by religious fervor to prove himself righteous before God...

God Was Good To Nicodemus

God Was Good To Nicodemus

10Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12If I have told you earthly things and you do not...

26The Lord said to Moses and Aaron: 27“How long will this wicked community grumble against me? I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites. 28So tell them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Lord, I will do to you the very thing I heard you say: 29In...

God Was Good To Moses

God Was Good To Moses

Though Moses was all but forgotten about by the people of Israel, God was not done with him. After spending his formidable years in luxury and power over his people, Moses spent another forty in obscurity and loneliness. We are told by Stephen in Acts 7:25 that Moses...

God Was Good To Samuel

God Was Good To Samuel

Samuel’s story is too long to reprint here, but we can see much of his life represented in 1 Samuel. God chose Samuel from before the time he was born as a response to his mother’s promise to God. God spoke to Samuel in a time where He wasn’t speaking to almost anyone...

God Was Good To Nathaniel

God Was Good To Nathaniel

47When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.” 48“How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.” 49Then Nathanael...

God Was Good To Peter

God Was Good To Peter

25Meanwhile, Simon Peter was still standing there warming himself. So they asked him, “You aren’t one of his disciples too, are you?” He denied it, saying, “I am not.” 26One of the high priest’s servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, challenged...
