Psalm 121

Psalm 121 is one of the Songs of Ascent, used by worshippers ascending to the Jewish temple, and used by us too today as we focus our eyes upon God.

Salt and Light

Where does the word salary come from and how was salt used in the Roman world of Jesus’ time? These are just some of the questions Rana asks as he looks at these parables of Jesus.

Lamb of God

Near the beginning of John’s Gospel, John the Baptist sees Jesus for the first time and says “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

John the Baptist

John sends his disciples to ask Jesus ‘are you the Messiah or should we expect someone else?’ We don’t know whether John himself had doubts or whether he wanted his disciples to be reassured after his imminent death. They were all expecting the Messiah, but Jesus, instead of simply saying ‘yes, I am he’, gives them the evidence so they can see the truth for themselves.

Prophecy and Hope

The prophets of the Old Testament were not popular people. They looked odd, they didn’t say what people wanted to hear, but they were God’s messengers. And although we often associate them with messages of gloom and doom, what they brought was hope – a hope that things could be restored and repaired.
