Letters to 7 Churches

The book of Revelation in the New Testament is a record of end time events leading up to the return of Jesus Christ.
This is a record of a vision that Apostle John received while he was in the lonely island of Patmos.
There, Jesus Christ appeared to John and instructed him to: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamum, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”
These seven churches were seven local congregations of early Christians living in each city.
The seven Churches are named for their locations.
All of them are located in the Asia Minor, present-day Turkey.
The order of these cities corresponds to the route along which a courier from Patmos would have carried the scroll.

Anointing of Jesus with oil


This is a short study about the anointing of Jesus with oil.
Our question is that how many times was Jesus anointed with oil?
A description of this incident is recorded by all the four gospels.
We read about the incident in Matthew 26: 6-13; Mark 14: 3-9; Luke 7: 36-50 and John 12:1-8.
But these descriptions are not about one and the same event. They are about three separate occasions of different women anointing Jesus.

Born Again


What is the meaning of the Biblical phrase ‘born again’?
This is the question we intend to discuss today.
The best passage to learn about born again is the famous conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus Apostle John recorded this conversation his gospel in 21 verses.
Let us read certain passages from this conversation and try to understand the real meaning of ‘born again’ experience.

Crucifixion and the Roman Triumph

Mark 4:11 says:
And He said to them, "To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables,” (NKJV)

Certain mysteries of the Kingdom of God is wrapped in parables so that the chosen people may know it and the outside people may not understand it.
Such a mystery is presented by Mark in his narration of the crucifixion of Jesus.
This study is intended to unveil the mystery in Mark’s narration for those who are chosen by God to receive His Grace and salvation.

Son of Man and Son of God

Theologians have been trying to decode the meaning of the expressions “Son of Man” and “Son of God” for a long time.
Even after long discussions for centuries, interpretation of the terms remains a challenge.

“Son of Man” and “Son of God” are two titles that Jesus used to speak of Himself.
They are not equal or similar terms; their meaning is different and unrelated to each other.
So let us discuss these terms under different categories.
