Lent 2018: The Temptations of Jesus

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 13th February 2018 in Lent | lent,series,Temptation,Sacrifice,passover lamb,paschal lamb

Lent is just around the corner, and so this year I've decided to write a short series over the next 40 days looking at the forty days that Jesus spent in the wilderness, and the temptations he faced. I'll post a new blog each sunday of Lent looking at each temptation, and then finish the series just before Easter sunday looking at “how was Jesus a sacrifice?”. Series outline: Temptation one: Pride (1st sunday of Lent, February 18, 2018) Temptation two: worship and Glory (2nd sunday of Lent, February 25, 2018) Temptation three: Testing God (3rd sunday of Lent, March 4, 2018) Temptation four: Complacency (4th sunday of Lent, March 11, 2018) Topical: W...

Day Seventeen: St. Justin Martyr: First Apology, Chaps. 60-68 Who: Justin Martyr was a Philosopher who converted to Christianity and became a tireless evangelist and apologist. Justin wrote more Christianity than any other person prior to his time. He is classified herein as Eastern, since he a native of Samaria and his thought patterns were Eastern.

Why: Justin is demanding the Emperor to investigate accusations and unjust persecution against Christians so that they at least may fac...
 

The Temptations of Jesus: worship and Glory

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 25th February 2018 in Lent | temptation,wilderness,desert,worship,glory,devil,satan,forty days,lent

Here we are on the second sunday of Lent, and this week I am looking at the next temptation Jesus faced in the desert against the devil, the one of worship and glory. Let's take a look at the text: Luke 4:5-8 Then the devil led him up and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And the devil said to him, “To you I will give their glory and all this authority; for it has been given over to me, and I give it to anyone I please. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.”  Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘worship the Lord your God,    and serve only him.’” (cf. Matthew 4:8-10) Last week we saw how Satan temp...
 

Francis Chan turns towards a more historical and ancient view of Communion

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 14th January 2020 in General Interest | eucharist,communion,francis chan,church fathers,church history,controversy

If you follow certain Christian blogs, or have Christian friends on Social Media, then you may have seen a short video clip being shared which has been taken from a recent sermon by popular Evangelical pastor/speaker and author, Francis Chan of Crazy Love ministries. Depending on who shared the clip will depend on which reaction you have seen; some are praising his words, others fearing for his future calling it a “red flag”. And all of this over a short statement he made about communion! I recommend you watch this 3 minute clip below before continuing, if you haven’t seen it already. I would also recommend watching the whole 47 minute sermon for some b...
 

The Eighth Day

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 26th October 2016 in Eschatology | eighth day,early church,new creation,baptism,resurrection,eschatology,sabbath,Lord's Day,Festival of Booths

What is the “eighth day” you may ask; surely we know there are only seven days in a week! But in ancient times, sunday – which was also known as the first day of the week, was also referred to as the eighth day by Christians. This day was considered a holy day from the earliest of times by Christians (despite some weak arguments that Constantine, or the Pope, “changed the Sabbath” some 400 years later), and this was because it was the day on which Christ rose from the dead! I will make a beginning of the eighth day, that is, a beginning of another world. For that reason, also, we keep the eighth day with joyfulness, the day on which Jesus rose aga...
 

It's no longer about land!

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 16th August 2014 in Israel | Israel,war,politics,current events,Hamas,Gaza,promised land,New Covenant,spirit and truth,worship,new creation

As I've been thinking more about the Israel situation, and reading and hearing the responses and debates on my last article, and the issue in general, it seems to me that people can't help but get stuck in the mindset of a geo-political debate. Yes, there's a place called "Israel" in the middle-east, and yes there's a war going on which is terrible for all involved — but from a New Testament Christian perspective, that shouldn't be our focus when it comes to thinking about the true Israel! This is what it's about!   If you want to "support Israel" because you believe they are in the right or have 'just cause', then fine – just don't cal...
