    As more and more details emerge concerning Friday’s Ramadan attack on a busload of Christians on pilgrimage, the more it becomes evident that these 29 martyrs died solely because they were Christians. Survivors of the attack said that the ten masked Islamic State militants did not merely open fire on the bus full of Christian pilgrims on their way to the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confesor, but that the victims were made to descend from the bus and asked one by one whether they were Christians before being shot by the assailants. According to one of the chaplains of...
  • Raymond Ibrahim: Why Easter Brings Out the Worst in Islam

    This year’s most notable attack occurred in Egypt, where two Coptic Christian churches were bombed during Palm Sunday mass, leaving 50 dead and 120 injured. While this incident received some coverage in Western media, attacks on churches in Egypt on or around Easter are not uncommon. For instance, this last April 12, just two days after the Palm Sunday attacks, authorities thwarted another Islamic terror attack targeting a Coptic monastery in Upper Egypt. Similarly, on April 12, 2015, Easter Sunday, two explosions targeting two separate churches took place in Egypt. Although no casualties were reported, hence no reporting in Western...

    Sisi said that the “corpus of [Islamic] texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the centuries” are “antagonizing the entire world” and that Egypt “is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.” Egypt’s Christians began Holy Week celebrations by being blown up today. Two Coptic Christian Orthodox churches packed with worshippers for Palm Sunday mass were attacked by Islamic suicide bombers; a total of 44 were killed and 126 wounded or mutilated. Horrific scenes of carnage—limbs and blood splattered on altars and pews—are being reported from both churches....

  • "Holy Week: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb" (Sermon for Palm Sunday, on Matthew 21:1-11; 27:11-66)

    “Holy Week: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb” (Matthew 21:1-11; 27:11-66) “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” Have you heard that saying before? It refers to the month of March. The idea is that March usually comes in “like a lion”--the weather is harsh and cold--but at the end of the month, March often goes out “like a lamb”: the weather is fair and mild. “In like a lion, out like a lamb”: strong at the beginning of the month, gentle at the end. That may be true for the month of March, but you can...

    The ISIS terror group has claimed responsibility for two separate Palm Sunday bombing attacks at Coptic Christian churches in Egypt that have killed 37 people and injured more than 100. The first blast happened at St. George church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 26 people were killed and 71 others wounded, officials said. Television footage showed the inside of the church, where a large number of people gathered around what appeared to be lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers. A second explosion was later reported at St. Mark's Cathedral in the coastal city of Alexandria,...

    As America celebrates Palm Sunday, let us not forget about the history of the false perception that 2.7 million visitors of Jesus' day had (Jews and Gentiles) from all over the land of Israel and the known world during the Week of the Passover. Countless multitudes in Jerusalem at that time had totally misunderstood who Jesus was (Matt. 23:27; Luke 19:14). These countless multitudes that Jesus healed from demonic oppression and all kinds of diseases had soon forgotten His wonderful works for them. His 3-1/2 year preaching ministry was beginning to wear thin, and they had had enough of Him...

    “He Humbled Himself” (Philippians 2:5-11) Have you ever been humbled? Yes, humbled, brought low. Maybe you were humbled when you got beat really badly in a game of Scrabble. Maybe you won that game of Scrabble, and you got the big head, so God had to humble you in some other way. Or think about the March Madness that’s going on right now. Sometimes there is an occasional upset, but usually, when a #16 seed has to face a #1 seed in the opening round, it can be pretty humbling. To be humbled is not a pleasant experience. Often when...

    When Is Palm Sunday 2016? Discover Meaning Behind Annual Catholic Celebration By Maria G. Valdez | Mar 19 2016, 12:02AM EDT Palm Sunday is this March 29. Shutterstock/ Ricardo Reitmeyer This year, Palm Sunday falls on March 20. It is the Sunday before Easter, and it commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. It marks the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent. This is recorded in all four of the Gospels (Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-38; and John 12:12-18).Five days before Passover, Jesus...

    – This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the Palm Sunday tornadoes that tore through the Midwest. The National Weather Service recorded 47 tornadoes between April 11th and April 12th, 1965. 261 people died, making it the third deadliest outbreak on record. These details of the storm are something Carl Hartup witnessed first-hand. He worked as chief photographer for the News-Sentinel for 37 years. One can see a lot in a career that spans nearly forty years. snip “I took a corn stalk that was driven into a concrete block. The power of a tornado is just unbelievable,” Hartup said....

    Like they did a week ago, ”Black Brunch” protesters hit the Atlanta area on Palm Sunday to disrupt “white spaces” by walking into restaurants, standing among diners and loudly reading statistics and proclamations regarding black oppression. Twitchy noted the latest protests, which were caught on cellphone video and spread around the Internet via social media. In this clip a man who appeared to be a manager attempted to get protesters out of the eatery to no avail — not even when a woman told them, “You’re scaring the children!” (VIDEO-AT-LINK)[continued]
