Jesus Unseen

Posted by Eric Farmer on

In light of our current series “Things Unseen,” I was reading John 1 this morning and saw it from a different angle. So go with me for a second and imagine…It’s the year 35 AD, a few years after the death and resurrection of Jesus. The disciples, who previously leaned in...

We Are All Witnesses

Posted by Tim LaTour on

For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For when He received honour and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my...
