The cave of Machpelah
The Bible tells us that long ago Abraham bought a field and a cave as a burial site for Sarah his wife. That selfsame place in central Hebron is known today by Jews and Muslims alike, who both correctly revere Abraham as their ancestor. But God made a promise to Abraham that’s about to be fulfilled, a promise that affects us all!
The nature of God
The Bible claims to be the completely inspired Word of God. It is the only source of reliable information about God and it is there that we find God’s revelation about Himself, facts we all need to know.
You are exceptional
In the evening of September 7th, 2017, the pianist Sir András Schiff sat down at the piano on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London. For the next two hours he played music by J. S. Bach entirely from memory and without a break. That ability is truly exceptional that few if any can equal. But we all have a choice to make. Do we recognize the One who gave us these great gifts, who made us so exceptional, and follow Him, or not?
In the Bible the book of Exodus describes the evacuation of the people of Israel from the land of Egypt about 3,500 years ago. But the Exodus also had a special symbolic meaning that applies to all people, not just Israel. Just as God’s people were delivered from slavery and death, led out of Egypt, and after a period of trial in the wilderness allowed to enter the Promised Land, so mankind can be delivered from the bondage of sin and death to inherit eternal life and blessing.
