The Temple of Solomon

In all of Scripture, save the Lord Jesus Christ, no other person is the embodiment of wisdom quite like Solomon. His reign brought unprecedented wealth into the land of Israel while his people increased in number (1 Kings 4:20). He stands as author to some of the richest literature of the Old Testament including Psalm … More The Temple of Solomon

David’s Covenant

Though the nation of Israel produced many kings, there was never a king quite like David. David was the original renaissance man: master warrior, premier strategist, musical virtuoso, leading administrator, etc. However, it was during one of his most altruistic of moments in devotion unto God that God in return poured out His blessings upon … More David’s Covenant

Instead, He chose to teach us about Himself by means of stories. In the Scriptures, we hear stories … More Destined to Rule

The Legacy of Grace

One of my favorite things about the Bible is that there is no lack of amazing stories. One of the great gems of the Old Testament is the story of Ruth. Now this story comes to us in the midst of one of Israel’s darkest moments. The very first verse of the very first chapter … More The Legacy of Grace
