For eons, people assumed that ancient biblical Jerusalem was part of the Old City, an area inside modern-day Jerusalem — but a British archeologist shattered that definitive claim 150 years ago when he made a discovery that had reportedly been hidden for nearly 2,000 years.
Anarina Heymann, outreach coordinator for the City of David, told CBN News about how archeologist Charles Warren “rediscovered the ancient biblical Jerusalem” and how that finding has transformed the understanding of the city that King David designated as his capital 3,000 years ago.
Heymann explained that the archeological findings at the site have helped “bring the Bible to life” and how she believes, in turn, prophecy is being fulfilled. In the end, she said the excavations as well as the Bible’s contents are coming together to give a full picture of Jerusalem’s past…. more
Witnesses were devastated when a massive fire broke out at a duplex in Ruston, Louisiana, with one neighbor saying that she was particularly shocked when a firefighter brought out an item that was unscathed amid the debris: a Bible.
J. Thomas described the scary scene that unfolded on Wednesday night, with flames quickly engulfing the building. But she said that the presence of the Bible gave her a fair bit of hope and internal peace amid the chaos.
“The crackling. Glass breaking,” she said. “There were flames coming out of the top of the building. There were flames coming out of the windows.”… more
There is a big difference between reading and feeding a non-believer can read the Bible and it provides no life, no sustenance whatsoever. A sinful Christian can read the Bible and it doesn’t provide anything for him either. That is why Peter says you have to lay aside sin and then desire the word as a baby desires milk. So the first thing that opens up the truth of scripture to you is a pure heart. The faithful Bible Study, Bible reading begins with a confession and a desire to have the Lord cleanse your heart so that
you can really understand what he says.
Secondly you have to be able to interpret the meaning of Scripture. It isn’t just the words on the surface the truth is buried in those words and you have to get to the meaning. That’s why we provide so many resources for you to understand the Bible. There’s very little value in simply reading the Bible if you don’t know what it means but once you have set your heart right, once you understand what it means then the next key is to meditate on it…
Actor Jim Caviezel, who stars in the upcoming film “Paul, Apostle of Christ,” explains the significance of Saul of Tarsus’ transformation into one of Jesus’ apostles and what it means to be great in God’s eyes.
“The name Saul means great one,” Caviezel explained while on the set of his upcoming Bible epic. “And Paul, the name, just by one change of a letter, means little one.”
“In order for us to be great in the eyes of God, we have to become very small,” he said.
The movie brings to life the story of Saul of Tarsus, who was known for persecuting and murdering Christians but went on to become one of the most powerful and important figures of the Church after he enountered Jesus on the road to Damascus…. more

After I was saved in 1983, I called a Messianic Congregation in my area and spoke to a lovely lady – a fellow Jewish Christian. She was so excited over my coming to know Yeshua as my Savior! We must have talked for well over an hour, but the thing I remember so vividly was when she brought up Isaiah 53. She asked if I had ever read that portion of Scripture. I had not – but promised that I would after we hung up.
To say that I was shocked would be a gross understatement. I remember reading the words over and over. I wondered why I had never heard this in my synagogue.
It was a clear picture of our Redeemer – Yeshua – and why He went to that Cross to suffer and die. I’m sure that most of the readers of this article have read Isaiah 53 numerous times. But for those who have not – I am placing it here… more
We can always count on Satan to use the Bible for his own purposes; he invariably twists and perverts the proper context of the Word of God. After all, one of his names is the “deceiver.”
In the Garden of Eden, Eve was fooled by Satan’s convincing words: “Did God really say…….?” The devil doesn’t need many new tricks. The one’s he has employed throughout history have served him well.
An Excerpt from gotquestions.org on the Importance of Sound Doctrine:
“Sound doctrine is important because our faith is based on a specific message. The overall teaching of the church contains many elements, but the primary message is explicitly defined: “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures [and] . . . he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). This is the unambiguous good news, and it is “of first importance.” Change that message, and the basis of faith shifts from Christ to something else. Our eternal destiny depends upon hearing “the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation” (Ephesians 1:3; see also 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14).”… read more
Recently I got to spend more time over one week in Jerusalem’s City of David than I’ve spent there in the past 30 years. Living a mere 15 minutes from Jerusalem, I try to be mindful of how incredible it is to have the privilege to be in the holy city often, even for things as mundane as business meetings, to see a movie or go shopping. However, there are special places within Jerusalem that are at the very foundation of the city, literally, and being able to spend time there is indescribably awesome.
My visit was in two parts, under the auspices of The Jerusalem Watch, which hosts extensive and compelling daytime tours (The Jerusalem Watch Tour), offering those who are passionate about Jerusalem a “tangible opportunity to connect by taking an active role in uncovering the glory and history of ancient Jerusalem; literally becoming part of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.”… read more
For me personally I believe that the bible is the infallible Word of God but what is surprising is, those in the church who do not believe the bible was inspired by God – the Holy Spirit. God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). God’s word will stand forever (Isaiah 40:18, Matthew 24:35).
2 Timothy 3:16 AMP All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately-behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; 17 so that the [a]man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work…. read more
