About Me

This blog is a teaching and publishing ministry of the Disciples Global Network. The focus is on Jesus. Who was he? What was his role? What did he accomplish? And especially, just what does it mean to be the Messiah of Israel?

The interpretive approach employed is twofold. First, to focus on reading any passage in its original literary and historical contexts.  To whom did the author write and why? What were the historical circumstances that prompted it? Who were its recipients? Second, to give full consideration to all citations and verbal allusions from the Hebrew Bible or the Greek Septuagint version of the Old Testament, and especially to how the New Testament author applies it.

My Profile Photo
I am a lifelong student of the Bible. Over that time, I have developed a keen interest in Bible prophecy. But above all, the figure and challenge of Jesus and his self-sacrificial act continue to consume me. "Christ crucified" is, indeed, the "wisdom and power of God," and the only means for truly understanding the identity and nature of God. In Jesus, all God's mysteries are revealed. My prayer is that this site will help others to better comprehend this Jesus.
