The Gospel of Matthew

Biblical texts create worlds of meaning and invite readers to enter them. When readers enter such textual worlds, which are often strange and complex, they are confronted with theological claims. With this in mind, the purpose of the Interpreting Biblical Texts series is to help dedicated students in their experience of reading and interpreting by providing guides for their journeys into textual worlds. The controlling perspective is expressed in the operative word of the title: interpreting. The primary focus of the series is not so much on the world behind the texts or out of which the texts have arisen as on the worlds created by the texts in their engagement with readers. In this volume, Donald Senior provides an up-to-date introduction to the Gospel of Matthew. The seven chapters of Part One focus on modern biblical scholarship and the interpretation of Matthew, discussing the sources and structure of the Gospel, its use of the Old Testament, its understanding of Jewish Law, its setting as a part of the mission of Christianity to the Gentiles, its Christology, its understanding of the nature of discipleship, and the community from which the Gospel originated. The six chapters of Part Two provide a structured guide to reading and interpreting Matthew's Gospel.

Morning and Evening Meditations from the Word of God

Education, Challenge, Inspiration, and Encouragement

There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.

Great Commission, Great Confusion, or Great Confession?

There is a great debate going on in the church today. It centers on one question: What is the mission of the church? From culturally relevant, emerging congregations to strategic methods of organization and outreach, many claim they have the answer. They say the mission must become missional. Yet the churches of North America continue to struggle. Uncertainty is growing. What does it really mean to be 'missional'? Competing claims abound. Get the message out! Get the message right! Great confusion has set in, particularly in the postmodern North American church. The Gospel is getting lost. Yet, throughout the ages, the creedal confession of the Holy Christian Church has carried her through uncertainty and struggle. The Apostles' Creed has steadied and stayed the mission of the church for centuries. It centers on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit--the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. This book celebrates the historic mission of the Holy Christian Church, and it invites the North American church to do the same.

Man is made to exercise his freewill. The mind of his own and the power to choose between right and wrong, good and evil, light and darkness is about to be washed away through brainwashing. The agents of control dubbed as Secret Government by John Todd (the top Illuninati defector) have put necessary machinery in place to ensure that all human beings are in conformity in their thinking and ways of life, trying to wipe away diversity, which makes each person unique. This book attempts to shed light on how the techniques of mind control are applied through the use of propaganda, education, entertainment, drugs, religion and media. It is the result of research works, some of which are based on findings of various researchers and writers like BuggerLugz, Edward Hunter, Hadley Cantril, Herbert Krugman, David L. Robb, Vaughan Bell, Juliana Gomez, Ryan Duffy Vice, Henry Makow, David Nicholls, Fritz Springmeire, Steven Hassan, Renate Thienel, Debra Pursell and a host of others who are acknowledged in this book.

A Modern-Day Lydia: The Sister Dorris Gilbert Story tells of a humble woman who overcame a myriad of obstacles and challenges to become a stalwart prayer warrior in her home church. Although her youth was completely devoid of religion, she became keenly aware of the need for the salvation of God. Therefore, after connecting with a small church located in her neighborhood, she had an amazing encounter with the Lord. Afterward, the anointing of God impressed upon her the spirit of prayer and she went faithfully about her daily prayer. In turn, her deep faith and perseverance in prayer heightened the confidence of many who wanted to guarantee that their eternal inheritance be among those that are sanctified. Without doubt, as you read this biographical narrative of this humble servant, you will be amazed of her brilliant and faithful commitment to Christ, and will have no doubt that this loyal and caring servant of God had been truly touched by the transforming power of the risen Christ.
