Jeremiah 31:31 is the unifying verse binding past and future, Old and New Testament, Law and Grace, Jehovah and Jesus Christ, Judaism and Christianity. From this lofty perspective we find grand patterns in the Bible that offer hope and encouragement for followers of Jesus Christ.
First person reader
This structured series of meditations expresses first person statements of faith followed by a prayer.
The reader will gain the most from this project if he/she speaks out loud the faith statements. For instance, "I am righteous," means the reader is becoming righteous as he/she speaks it. Continued exercise of this sort will result in greater understanding, christian growth and a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.
Within each group of articles:
- (Part 1) introduces the topic with Old Testament references.
- (Part 2) expands it with the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels.
- (Part 3) elaborates how these ideas work out in the early church from the writings of the early church fathers.
These meditations and scholarly articles are expressions of my personal journey as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Always founded on Biblical references and often including historical and technical considerations, these studies are made available to everyone with an interest in becoming a Christian or growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Many ideas expressed demonstrate a fresh outlook on established theological doctrines. For further study reference links are provided in the sidebar.
