Lazar target: What ever happened to Lazarus?

"Archaeologists discovered a first century tomb at Bethany containing Jewish burial ossuaries. One of the bone boxes bore the name Martha. Another bore the name Lazarus. Is this the final resting place of the man Yeshua resurrected?"

The Caiaphas Prophecy

"The Gospel of John takes note of the irony in Caiaphas’ words. He had unwittingly uttered the gospel message..."

Jesus and the mummy

"Every person that Yeshua raised from the dead eventually died again. There is a big difference between a resurrection and resuscitation."

Dead man walking

"What’s the shortest verse in the Bible? Coincidentally, it's right next to the biggest miracle our Master ever performed. The words 'Yeshua wept' (John 11:35) introduce the resurrection of Lazarus."

Ruth – the connecting link

"Ruth indeed is the connecting link between Jews and Gentiles, and the “dividing wall of hostility” is broken down in her flesh and that of Boaz in the birth of the future Redeemer so many generations later."

Was Jesus a show-off?

"He did not do miracles to show off. He was not a magician or performer. And He refused to do signs and wonders to prove Himself. So why did He raise Lazarus from the dead?"

Life before death

"The eternal life that Yeshua spoke of was not something to be looked for only in the future, it was something to be entered into immediately."

Afraid of the dark?

"Ever been afraid of the dark? It’s natural to be afraid of what we cannot see, but the shadows flee when exposed to the light."

Left outside the kingdom

"Not everyone who claims Yeshua as "Lord" will enter the kingdom of heaven. Not even miracles in his name will guarantee admission."

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

"The chief criterion by which the false prophet may be recognized is not necessarily theological or miraculous. Yeshua told His disciples to watch the fruit of their lives."
