Abraham meets with Abimelech for the second time in this passage. This time, his reputation preceded him. Abimelech remembered two things 1) God was with him, and 2) he wasn't very trustworthy. Wow! What a first impression.
Well, fortunately for Abraham, indeed the...read >>
It was another hot, dry day under the oaks of Mamre when three strangers visit Abraham's tent. 99 can move pretty quick when divine visitors show up! At Abe's request--but clearly the Lord's intent--Abraham provides a communion meal of cakes, curds, and a young calf...read >>

But what would we make of a man who said as much yet was perfectly calm... rather than...read >>
This week we wrap up the narrative wherein the 38 year-old invalid is healed by Jesus. This week we pick up the story just after Jesus has pursued the man in the temple, told him he was well, and instructed Him to sin no more.

The answer makes all the difference!
Today we examine the most popular verse in the Bible, along with it's surrounding context....read >>
