Mark 12:13-17 What about Paying taxes? Verse 13 would seem to indicate that this is a new episode, presumably separate from the previous (Parable of the Tenants). If, in 12:1-12, Jesus was teaching the crowd, here He is back to dealing with the authorities directly....read more
John 15:11 NLT I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! So last week, I skipped over this Advent theme of "joy." I'm not one of those people that forces myself to speak on something if I'm not feeling it. I...read more
Mark 12:1-12 ...or How not to make friends and influence people (a Parable) It would seem that Mark sets this parable still in the Temple, immediately following the leadership's challenge of Jesus authority. He won't tell them by what authority He does "these things"...read more

Revelation 9:20-21 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by the plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of...read more
