The Tragic Story of Judas Iscariot, Pt 4

One of the most sobering moments in the Upper Room is when the Lord Jesus said to the Twelve, “Truly I say to you one of you will betray Me” (Matt 26:21 NAS). As soon as he made this solemn announcement, the disciples began to ask Jesus the question that perhaps is one of the most familiar phrases recorded in the gospel records, “Surely it is not I, Lord?” (Matt 26:22 NAS)  Read more »

Bible Based New Year’s Resolutions, Pt 1

Maybe you are also, as many are at this time, thinking about goals for 2012 you would like to accomplish in the various spheres of your life.
