Short studies on a range of topics.
Do we know the apostle John? It is hard to understand someone's letter if we don't know the person who sent it. This man, as no other, was closest mentally to our Lord, 'the disciple Jesus loved'. We have the 3 gospels, the 2 or 3 witnesses required by the Law (Matthew, Mark and Luke), and then we have an extra one, a remarkable gospel, the record of John.

Prophecy becomes much clearer once it has been fulfilled. Much of the prophecy of the Bible is fulfilled over a long time scale, but some will only be fulfilled on the eve of the establishment of the Kingdom. The four horns seen by Zechariah are now evident. Their project is not peace in the Middle East but ensuring Israel has less of a piece of the Middle East. ... More
