    In the 8th century before Christ, the Prophet Isaiah wrote (7:14): "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." The Gospel of Matthew, 1:20-23, relates: "The angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from...

    "Let us go up at once, and possess the land; for we are well able to overcome it," shouted Joshua and Caleb, after they spent 40 days spying out the Promised Land. But the other ten spies gave a bad report, causing the Israelites to lose heart. This sad day was Tisha B'Av - the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Av. As a result of their doubt, the Israelites wandered in the desert 40 years. Tisha B'Av in the year 587 BC was the day the Babylonians destroyed Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem, and carried the Tribe of Judah...
  • "With food and clothing be content"?

    In 1 Timothy 6:6-10, Paul writes this: "But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." Obviously in our time and...

    Though it's not the main point of this verse, there's something here that we can especially take comfort in: "And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." John 5:16-17 In Young's Literal Translation: "and because of this were the Jews persecuting Jesus, and seeking to kill him, because these things he was doing on a sabbath. And Jesus answered them, ‘My Father till now doth work, and I work.’" It's so easy to think about...

    Posted on July 31, 2019July 31, 2019 by Msgr. Charles Pope Was St. Paul a Poor Preacher? For many years, the image I had of St. Paul was that of a bold evangelist who went from town to town teaching and preaching powerfully about Christ. I envisioned his audience mesmerized as he preached and took on his opponents.I ultimately altered my view a bit based on scriptural descriptions, some of which we are currently reading in the Office of Readings. I have no doubt that he was a brilliant theologian. Paul was reputed to have been one of the...
  • First Bible PRINTED in America in English language (American Minute)

    In colonial America, Bibles had to be imported from Britain as the British government strictly regulated the printing of religious materials. It was illegal to print Bibles in the English language without a license from the King. In 1663, Missionary John Elliot printed the first Bible in America at Harvard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts, but it was in the Indian language of Algonquin. Queen Elizabeth I, in 1589, had granted Christopher Barker the title of Royal Printer. He had the exclusive "perpetual royal privilege" to print Bibles in England. His son, Robert Barker, assumed the position of the King's Printer...
  • Why Did God Choose the Apostle Paul?

    During interviews about my most recent book, "Jesus Is Risen: Paul and the Early Church," many hosts have asked me why the greatest persecutor of Christians, Saul of Tarsus (later known as Paul), became Christianity's foremost evangelist. This is a fascinating question because Paul, by all appearances, was the least likely person to pioneer early Christianity's missionary efforts. He was born a Jew in Tarsus but raised and educated in Jerusalem under Gamaliel, a highly respected rabbi and Jewish scholar who mentored him on the "strict manner of the law of our fathers" (Acts 22:3). Paul touted his own Jewish...

    Commuters travelling in South-West London experienced delays Monday morning after passengers on a train forced open the doors and ran onto the tracks to escape a man with a bible. The incident took place near Wimbledon station, as a passenger on a packed commuter train started reading lines from the bible. Another passenger asked the man to stop because he was “scaring” others, but it was already too late and panic had set in. The Bible reading man was questioned by police after the train reached the station but was found to be carrying only books and water, and was...

    NEW YORK (AP) — On the latest list of books most objected to at public schools and libraries, one title has been targeted nationwide, at times for the sex and violence it contains, but mostly for the legal issues it raises. The Bible. “You have people who feel that if a school library buys a copy of the Bible, it’s a violation of church and state,” says James LaRue, who directs the Office for Intellectual Freedom for the American Library Association, which released its annual 10 top snapshot of “challenged” books on Monday, part of the association’s “State of Libraries...
  • Bible to Be Mississippi's Official State Book? GREAT!

    Lawmakers in Mississippi have introduced two pieces of legislation that, if approved, would make the Holy Bible the official book of Mississippi, even though such a move might conflict with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. With Mississippi lacking an officially designated book of the state, three Mississippi lawmakers, Reps. Tom Miles, Michael Evans, and William Arnold (also a non-denominational pastor), are sponsoring bills in the state legislature that would label the Holy Scripture as the state's official book. Evans told that the idea of making the Bible the official book of Mississippi came about when he was...

    JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli archaeologist says he has found the legendary citadel captured by King David in his conquest of Jerusalem, rekindling a longstanding debate about using the Bible as a field guide to identifying ancient ruins. The claim by Eli Shukron, like many such claims in the field of biblical archaeology, has run into criticism. It joins a string of announcements by Israeli archaeologists saying they have unearthed palaces of the legendary biblical king, who is revered in Jewish religious tradition for establishing Jerusalem as its central holy city — but who has long eluded historians looking for...

    The House Committee on Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs voted 8 to 5 to pass the legislation, entitled House Bill 503. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Thomas Carmody (R-Shreveport), argues that the purpose of the bill is not to establish an official religion in the state, but rather to reflect America's history and founding principles as outlined by the country's Founding Fathers. "It's not to the exclusion of anyone else's sacred literature," he told the House committee, according to The Associated Press. Carmody added later: "This is not about establishing an official religion of the state of Louisiana." When one lawmaker...

    'What we once knew to be immoral, we celebrate' Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger” – the startling New York Times bestseller that suggests the U.S. is in the shadow of judgment from God for its rejection of Him – stood at the podium for this year’s Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington on Inauguration Day. Amid weeping, praying and the sounding of shofars from the audience, Cahn said the U.S. has chosen a path that takes the nation away from God, and he pleaded with its leaders to return. “What we once knew to be immoral, we celebrate,”...
