But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Written by

How much is eternal life worth?—Mark 8:34-38

Written by

“If anyone wants to follow after me, let one deny oneself and pick up one’s cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it; but whoever will lose their life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it! For what good is it for someone to gain the whole world...

I apologize that the picture of me froze (especially with that bored look on my face–I wasn’t really bored!) But the audio is mostly good, especially considering that my interviewer and I were on opposite sides of the planet.

Women in Ministry

Romance in the Song of Solomon

Written by

Lest anyone suppose that the Bible is opposed to romance, we have in the Bible not only some romantic narratives and counsel but a love song. Granted, Song of Solomon is not the way we would probably write a love song today. Generally, we would not praise the desirability of our beloved by saying,...

After calling on fellow “elders” to look out for the needs of other believers in 1 Pet 5:1-4, Peter calls on the younger to submit to their elders in 5:5, “in the same way” (Gr. homoiôs).

This is not the first time that Peter has called on people to submit, or the first...

How do we relate to members of the Trinity?

Written by

Since there are theologians who spend their entire careers studying the Trinity, I dare offer the following only as a thought experiment in Johannine theology. It is, however, one that helps me to relate to the One God in Three Persons.

Whoever has seen Jesus, has seen the Father (John 1:18; 14:7).

Lifestyle Apologetics and 1 Peter 3:15

Written by

People often quote part of 1 Pet 3:15 to support the need for apologetics: always be ready to offer a defense (Greek apologia) to whoever asks you for an account of the hope among you.”

The context may suggest that the asking involves unbelievers questioning a movement of which they are...

Exaltation from the Lord

Written by

Exaltation comes from the Lord (Ps 75:6-7). We should always keep it in perspective. By the world’s standards, you can be king of Israel, but you’re still king of a puny kingdom that is a miniscule proportion of the world’s population. More importantly, before the living God, any...
