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.

Daniel’s vision of four beasts


The book of Daniel is mainly considered as a prophetic book which speaks about the last days.
Daniel’s interpretation of the king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in chapter 2 and Daniel’s visions in chapters 7 belong to a genre of prophecy termed "apocalyptic."
The word comes from the Greek apokalypsis, which means "revelation, making fully known, take the cover off,"

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream


Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon from approximately 605 BC until 562 BC.
He is considered as the greatest king of the Babylonian Empire.
He greatly expanded the Babylonian Empire and conquered Jerusalem in 586 BC
Nebuchadnezzar receives attention in the book of Daniel, chapters 1 - 4, appearing as the main character, beside Daniel.

Secrets of Successful Christian Living

In this short study, we are intending to discuss 5 secrets of a successful Christian life.
In another video, available in our video channel, naphtalitribetv.com, I have discussed in detail, why should we live a successful Christian life.
It is a two part video. I request you all to watch that video also along with this.

I believe that it is very important to live a successful Christian life.
When I say success, I mean success in the spiritual realm as well as in the physical realm.
I do not support a dichotomy between spiritual life and secular life.
For a true Christian believer who is born again by faith in Jesus Christ, there is no dichotomy between spiritual life and secular life.
Everything is spiritual for him, because he is seated in the right hand side of our Lord.
So a successful Christian life is a successful Kingdom living.
A successful Kingdom living is necessary for the “the increase of His government”. (Isaiah 9:7)
