A Click Away!

Dear Bible Advocate Readers, The May-June BA is out. In this issue, we continue our exploration of “The Gospel” focusing on the Gospel of Jesus Christ! The “good news” we have and must share is not a proposition but a Person – Jesus Christ! He died and rose again, and that changes everything as we […]

Kingdom Rest

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28, 29). If there is a word that captures the character of […]

Easier Than Ever!

Did you know that the Bible Advocate is going to be 160 years old next year? What a legacy! It’s been an honor and pleasure to have served as the editor for almost seven of those many years. We have come a long way since the US Civil War era in which the BA was […]

Offended?

“Which do you want first: the good news or the bad news?” You’ve probably heard that question. It is curious how the news often comes in this pair, especially as it is heard in the gospel. There is a paradox in the biblical presentation of the gospel — a dichotomy, or at least a dynamic […]

Focus on the Faithful — John

It is fitting to end our Focus on the Faithful series with John, the beloved disciple and author of the last book of the Bible. In the stories of the Gospels and Acts, we usually find John in Peter’s shadow. But as a writer, only Paul was more prolific. And as for distinctiveness (his Gospel, […]

Focus on the Faithful – Mary

You may be wondering which Mary this article is focusing on. You have probably noticed that there are many Marys in the New Testament. At the cross, we are told that “many women” followed Jesus (Matthew 27:55), but of those named, Mary is the most common. John indicates the popularity of the name when his […]

Defiant Faith

Defiant Faith             Oh give me, Lord, a faith unbound By doubts and fears that may assail. Grant me, I pray, a faith that’s more Than what’s behind, or what’s before. A heart that longs to see Your face, A soul unchanged by time or place. Oh give me, Lord, with […]
