God of Deliverance, Pt. 1

What Is the Good News of Yeshua? (Part 8) Having dispersed Noah’s descendants to form a world of nations, God continued His reconciling work through obscure, unremarkable Abraham.

God of Promise, Pt. 3

What Is the Good News of Yeshua? (Part 7) Before he died, Abraham found a wife for his son from among the people of his father.

Forced to follow through on His covenantal obligation, God enacted His judgment and barred mankind […]

God of Creation

What Is the Good News of Yeshua? (Part 2) The opening words of Scripture, found in Genesis 1:1, speak precisely to the beginning of the message of the Good News. Before the very spreading out of the heavens and the foundation of the earth, there was God, and nothing but God. This fact cannot be […]

What Is the Good News of Yeshua?

Ever since the advent of the World Wide Web in 1992, and the numerous technologies that have sprung forth […]
