We have looked at the four Gospels and the book of Acts to see what the Christian message is. Now we can turn to the letters of Paul. Jesus appeared to this rabbi and made him a powerful agent for the kingdom of God. He can tell us what the gospel is.

What Did the Apostles Preach?

Chapter 2 of Good News for Bad People

The book of Acts shows a dramatic change in the disciples. No more questions, no more doubts, no more arguing among themselves.

Good News in an Alabaster Jar

This was an action-packed week, filled with highly significant events — and this event is no exception. In Matthew 26, we find a description of Jesus being anointed with perfume. The story begins in verses 1-2:

When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, “As you know, the Passover is two days away — and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.” (NIV 1984)

Why Are Humans in the Image of God?

Are human beings an accident of random mutations in a world that has no purpose or meaning? Are love and goodness just psycho-biological delusions?

No. Human beings have incredible meaning and purpose because God set in motion the process by which all people have come to be. God has a plan and a purpose for every person. Indeed, the Bible says that all humans are made "in the image of God." He has something wonderful in mind for us.
