...Colossians 12-13: An Introduction The Condition The Incarnation and Redemption are God’s communication and penultimate expression of love for humanity.1 The New Testament presents the redemptive plan of God.2 It is where God openly reveals His plan of love for humanity. However, contemporary experience of human life and the human condition sometimes create an idea that it is far removed and decidedly different from the experience of life as given in the Bible.3 The tendency to view human concerns as dissimilar with past concerns opens a divide wherein a superficial non-meeting of human ideals and beliefs seem to be the appropriate reaction when encountering the narratives... of the New...

...Exegesis of Luke 7:36-50 The story documented in Luke 7:36-8:3 is arguably one of the commonest gospel stories today. Maybe the popularity of thestory could be based on the fact that the story is recorded by all the four gospels.1 However, the fact that this story depicts the son of God as one that accepts worship from even the sinful people could be another contributing factor to its widespread popularity. Even though Mathew, Mark and John also record this incident, the account of Luke is very distinctive. The first main difference with Luke’s account is that he has placed it very early in the gospel thereby detaching the story from the passion of the Christ. 2 3 Luke seems to be interested...

...Exegesis and Actualization on the Gospel of Mark Chapter verses 8 The Gospel according to Mark is generally portraying a vivid picture of Christ’s earthly mission. However, what makes Mark’s account crucial is the first verse, “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” This implies an accumulation of gospel accounts as to say there is a “beginning of the gospel.” In this paper, I would resolve that the first verse provides the premise for understanding the coming of John the Baptist preparing the way of the Lord. Significantly, it affects the eschatological tone of the passage. Therefore, the plain meaning of Mark 1:1-8 is appealing to the continuity of God’s...
