The Hebrew/Christian Scriptures include many allusions to pilgrimage customs and practices, yet the information is scattered and requires a considerable amount of reconstruction. It is posited that the pilgrimage paradigm, including the journey motif, has influenced the thought patterns of the writers of both the Old and New Testaments. To follow Jesus' journey to Jerusalem on the three feasts of pilgrimage in Luke-Acts and John, and their relevance to the way he revealed himself and taught his disciples, this work begins with the creation and patriarchal narratives, examining how the pilgrimage paradigm relates to discipleship. Reviewing the history of the people of God including the Exodus, the Exile, and restoration, this book establishes the significance of pilgrimage as a paradigm for Israel that eventually shapes Judaism. Seung Y Lee points us to a neglected fact that the three feasts of pilgrimage have developed their own characters and meanings for the momentous events in the history of Israel, and both Luke-Acts and John reflect the significance of the pilgrimage paradigm for Jesus' self-understanding and his teaching.

The Journal Experience series was created to accompany you during your daily Bible readings. Each journal focuses on different aspects of Bible Study to help you connect more intimately with God's Word.

This particular journal experience is here to help you by expanding your perspective on who God is by who he says he is. Writing down God's names, titles and attributes is a great way to clearly see who he is. The simple follow up questions will have different answers each day and are there to help you know yourself better by first knowing who your creator is. To see an inside version of this journal please use a computer as there is not an option to view via phone.In short, the journal has a space to write the book of the Bible you are reading through, a space for each name/title of God you come across and also a space to write each attribute you read of. There are then questions to help you better understand and meditate on these specific ideas.

Most Christians want to know God better but sometimes just don't know how to get started. As a result they are likely to flounder for a few years while going through their own struggles with life and after a while, might even feel beaten up and quit. Join the true journey of a mother-daughter team who searched God's Word daily and then applied those teachings to everyday life, sharing the words of a righteous and holy God. Their experiences and journey took them all the way from the jungles of the dangerous Rio Negro to the city of Lages, Brazil, and back up to the horse farms of Central Florida. Each story is filled with adventure and a challenge to get to know our wonderful God!

True religion confronts earth with heaven and brings eternity to bear upon time. The messenger of Christ, though he speaks from God, must also, as the Quakers used to say, “speak to the condition” of his hearers; otherwise he will speak a language known only to himself. His message must be not only timeless but timely. He must speak to his own generation. Tozer skillfully outlines the Attributes of God to draw his readers closer to God.

Artist and screen writer Brian Godawa used to revel in his ability to argue the truth of the gospel, often crushing his opponents in the process. In time, however, he began to realize that winning an argument about the logic of Christianity did not equal persuading people to follow Jesus. What was missing? Through prayer and searching the Scriptures, Godawa realized that while God cares deeply for rationality, propositional truths were not the only, or even the primary, tools he used to reach people with his Truth. In fact, Godawa discovered that story, metaphor and imagery were central to God's communication style because they could go places reason could never go: into the heart. In his refreshing and challenging book, Godawa helps you break free from the spiritual suffocation of heady faith. Without negating the importance of reason and doctrine, Godawa challenges you to move from understanding the Bible "literally" to "literarily" by exploring the poetry, parables and metaphors found in God's Word. Weaving historical insight, pop culture and personal narrative throughout, Godawa reveals the importance God places on imagination and creativity in the Scriptures, and provides a biblical foundation for Christians to pursue image, beauty, wonder and mystery in their faith. For any Christian who wants to learn how to communicate and defend the Gospel in a postmodern context, this book will help you find a path between the two extremes of intellectualized faith and anti-intellectual faith by recovering a biblical balance between intellect and imagination.

People fast for many reasons . . . to break an addiction . . . to seek God for healing . . . to discover the answer to a lingering problem . . . and some fast for revival. But the greatest reason to fast is to get to know God intimately and to feed on the Bread of Life. The book in your hands is not an instruction manual on the methods of fasting or on how to pray. Rather, Dr. Elmer Towns describes the spirit of fasting that leads to an intimate knowing of Jesus Christ. He will show you that fasting is: tasting the goodness of the Lord. waiting in God's presence to become like Him. coming to Jesus to enjoy His presence. drinking from God's presence to get spiritual satisfaction. learning to discipline yourself even as Jesus did. growing spiritually into the image of Jesus. gaining spiritual perception of God's world. entering God's rest as you know His heart. Guaranteed to Create a Spiritual Hunger and Thirst Within Your Soul That Only God Can Satisfy.

Do you know what your name means? Or why you are named what you are? Most parents search baby name books and the Internet for name ideas—yet ancient names carried even more significance. God's names answer to our insecurities, fears, anxieties, and troubles—whatever is going on in our lives, knowing and trusting God's name will meet us right where we are. From Genesis to Revelation, the one true God unmasks Himself through His names to those willing to look. This gives us an opportunity to have a renewed sense of who God really is and how powerfully He acts on behalf of those who love Him. This unique Bible study knits together Old Testament names of God with New Testament names of Jesus. He is unchanging throughout the Bible, the one consistency we have in an inconsistent world. Knowing God through His Names will draw you near to the heart of God the Father while unveiling the connection to Jesus the Son.

Theology of The Womb

Theology of The Womb

How will we honor the living womb, that lives and sometimes dies within us? This is a book about the theology found in the cycle of the womb, which births both life and death.

If it is true that God is a male, then His Divinity or Deity is expressed in His masculinity. Yet I am a woman, and there are parts of my body; such as my breasts, my vagina, and my womb that are telling a story about God that I have never learned or understood. This is an exploration of the significance of a womb that must shed and bleed before it can create. How will we engage our body which cyclically bleeds most of our life and can build and birth a human soul? How will we honor the living womb, that lives and sometimes dies within us? This is a book about the theology found in the cycle of the womb, which births both life and death. Every day each one of us is invited to create, and every day we make a decision knowing that from our creation can come death or life. Women’s voices have been silenced for a long time as society and the church has quieted their bodies. Will we courageously choose to listen to the sound of your voice, the song of your womb, and speak for the world to hear?

The apostle to the Gentiles presents a dilemma when in 1Cor 1,21 he asserts that human beings did not know God and in Rom 1,21 that they did. Consistent truth emerges as both of these verses resonate with echoes from Eden and Calvary. Thus, both pericopes in the present study point to the cross as the place where human cognizance of the divine happens most profoundly. The former verse brings to the fore the need for a domain of faithful obedience as a foundation for the human divine relantionship...The word of the cross grasps Christians by the power of the Holy Spirit. Hence human knowledge of God the ultimate goal involving both the cross and the creation, springs from the very life of the Trinity. Joseph Poggemeyer, studies at the Gregorian University I for his licence and doctorate in biblical theology.
