Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, which is a time of preparation to celebrate the most momentous event in earth's history since the creation itself.
The deep significance of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection are found in the Passover.
Jesus delivered what was very likely his most offensive sermon every preached. It would cost him the majority of his disciples, and act as a turning point in his public ministry.
Believers know God’s name and share in a very real way in God’s divine nature. Because God is truth and love, truth and love must go together in every believer’s life.
Jesus had delivered possibly the most offensive sermon ever given in his time, a message so viscerally horrifying, so unspeakably grotesque, that many must have been left actually speechless.
