Bible Trivia

Matthew 14: 55-56a reads: “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us?”

Child mortality during this period of time was high, however, how do we know that Joseph and Mary had at least 7 children?

She Believes

This morning’s post is dedicated to someone very special to me. She may not realize that I know she is watching and reading, silently, not commenting, simply processing. Ironically, it is her silence that has given her away!

Earlier, I was thinking about what the two of us believe, which isn’t much different from one another. Years and years ago, well, at least is seems that long, she asked me if I thought Creation and evolution could exist together. I’m sure I gave a glib answer that I halfway believed myself. Today I would answer her unequivocally, “no”.

She believes that He is the Son of God. Born of the Virgin Mary, in a barn with no place to lay his head. Matthew 3:17; Luke 1:26-38Luke 2:7.

She believes He was crucified, died, was buried and rose again. Matthew 27:31; Matthew 27:50; Matthew 27:57-60; Mark 16:6.

She believes He is seated at the right hand of the Father. Mark 16:19.

She believes He was and is and is yet to come. Revelation 1:8.

She believes. But, does she believe He is the Only One?

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6.
