But instead of thinking The Force had failed him, it strengThened his resolve and made him ‘pray’ all The more in faith and trust that everything would be fine and that They’d be safe.   Chirrut Imwe not being a Jedi – via GIPHY I am one with The Force; The Force is with me It was this that prompted me to write this blog. I couldn’t help but see The parallels in his ‘faith’ and ‘prayer’ to how our life as Christians ought to be concerning The w...

...Welcome to Part Two of The Olivet Discourse! It’s been a while, so we’ll pick up right where we left off with MatThew 24 verse 15 onwards, after a small recap of The chapter so far. The Olivet Discourse begins with The disciples admiring The architecture of The temple in Jerusalem.

Later on, when They are sat on The Mount of Olives, Jesus’ disciples come to him and ask “when will this happen?” and “what will be The sign” that all of this is about to commence? If we look at The accou...

I came across this image The oTher day (in The header above; see larger here) that links togeTher three parts of MatThew’s Gospel to highlight The connection which many often miss, or read as separate events. I like The image because it shows that when Jesus spoke These things, he would have been saying Them directly to The disciples and oThers who were listening to his teaching, and not in some cryptic, ambiguous dictation to a prophetic scribe, devoid of all context and meaning to those around him at The time. Update Feb 2017: I am adding some additional information to this to dis...

So, what really is The resurrection? How will we be resurrected, and what does it mean for us that Jesus rose again? Let’s explore what this means for us as Christians, and see what The Scriptures say. Jesus wa...

...For most people, The question of The origins of Christmas is probably far from Their minds. Some may recognise and give a cursory glance towards The Biblical narrative on The birth of Jesus as something to do with it (although a 2017 study showed that almost 1 in 20 Brits thought Easter was The birth of Jesus!);—but in some Christian circles The question (accusation?) that “Christmas is pagan” is at The forefront of Their minds.
