The Value of the Kingdom of Heaven
In two parables, Jesus emphasized the great value of his Kingdom.
The Explosive Growth of the Kingdom of Christ
In the parable of the Mustard Seed, Jesus predicted that his kingdom would start in a small, relatively obscure fashion; exhibit extraordinary growth; and increase to a large size in proportion to its beginning. History has wonderfully demonstrated the fulfillment of the Savior’s words.
Is There a Future Kingdom?
The New Testament clearly teaches that the kingdom of Christ was established on the day of Pentecost. But it also reveals a “kingdom” that is eternal and heavenly that is yet to come.
Jesus Foretells the Coming Kingdom
Christ’s prophecy concerning his approaching kingdom, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke, is a most controversial theme. In this article we provide a careful study of this declaration.
A Brief Study of the Word “Kingdom”
Biblical words may have varying senses, depending upon the context in which they are found. A brief study of the term “kingdom” is a good illustration of this principle.
Colossians 1:13 – The Present Kingdom
Is the kingdom of Christ now in existence? Or is the promise of such awaiting the future? The apostle Paul clearly affirms that the kingdom exists now.
2 Peter 1:11 – The Eternal Kingdom
What is the “kingdom” to which Peter refers in the passage? Study this important topic with us.
1 Kings 4:21 – Solomon’s Kingdom
Premillenialists, desperately clinging to the notion that the “land promise” to the Israelites is yet unfulfilled, disregard clear Bible testimony.
2 Samuel 7:12 – The Kingdom Established While David Slept
Samuel’s prophecy concerning the coming kingdom of Christ discredits the theory of premillennialism.
How Can the Church Be the Fulfillment of Daniel 2:44?
Was Daniel 2:44 fulfilled by the establishment of the church, or should we look for some other interpretation?
Is the Law of Moses (Torah) Still Binding?
Is the law of Moses still binding, or was it abolished by the death of Christ? Paul contends for the latter; some apparently dispute with him. Let us look at the evidence.
The Rescue of Christ — So-Called
A recently-published book, Rescuing Jesus from the Christians, seeks to throw the spotlight on some of the alleged “errors” in the beliefs and teaching of Jesus Christ. The fact is, Clayton Sullivan, the author, has revealed how very little he knows about Gospel history. Wayne Jackson briefly reviews this new volume.
The Regeneration – A Study of Matthew 19:28
What is the meaning of that ambiguous expression “the regeneration” that Christ mentioned in Matthew 19:28? Is it a reference to a thousand-year, literal reign of Christ upon the earth? Or does it describe the present Christian regime? Study this passage with us.
What Does It Mean To Be a Born Again Christian?
Jesus said that unless you are born again you cannot see the kingdom of God. So, what does it mean to be born again? Let’s explore the Bible for an answer to this important question.
Matthew 19:24 – The Rich and Heaven
Can the wealthy obtain Heaven?
Were John’s Disciples Required To Be Reimmersed?
Were those disciples who were immersed by John the Baptizer required to be re-immersed on the day of Pentecost or thereafter? Some sincere Bible students maintain they were, but will the evidence really support that view?
Who Are the 144,000 of Revelation 7 and 14?
The “Jehovah’s Witnesses” teach that only 144, 000 people will gain heaven. They base their doctrine upon passages that are found in the book of Revelation (chapters 7 & 14). Who are the 144, 000 mentioned in these texts? Is the number literal or figurative? Study this article.
Revelation 7 & 14 – The 144,000
How should one interpret the use of the numeral 144, 000 in the book of Revelation?
Premillennialism, the doctrine that Christ will soon return to set up an earthly kingdom for a thousand years, is a popular idea these days. In this this article, Wayne Jackson examines this theory.
What Is the Meaning of “Pluck Out Your Eye”?
Did Jesus literally say we should pluck out our eye if it offends us?
