What we are saved from?

Many believers, who are born again and leads a quality spiritual life do not know what we are actually saved from. Some thinks that we are saved from ourselves, some others think that we are saved from satan and a few knows that truth that we are saved from the wrath of God against a sinner. 

From pre-historic time onwards, humans face a bundle of problems without any solution. In fact all human problems that we face today, are not new but a repetition or continuation of what we have been going through from the beginning. And human problems contain an inner paradox in itself.

Passion Week of Jesus Christ

The crucifixion of Jesus is accepted by many scholars as a true historical event. It is recorded in the writings of Paul and the Gospels. The Jewish priest and historian and the Roman senator and historian Tacitus also has recorded the incident.

This study is an attempt to arrange the incidents of the Passion Week chronologically.
The challenge for an accurate chronology is that no single gospel gives a complete account of the Passion Week.
The events during the week are selected and narrated by the gospel writers according to their perspective and purpose.
So, in order to get chorological timeline, one must take pieces from all four gospels.

Thief on the Cross

The story of the thieves on the cross is very well known among us.
The repentance of the thief on the cross is a powerful story indeed. It shows us that conversions can happen even at the last moment of life; that even the vilest criminal will be accepted by God if they come to Him; that no more than a request for salvation made in faith is required by God.

Circumcision and Baptism


Welcome, once again to our Bible study program.
Today we are discussing Circumcision and Christian baptism. Our focus is on the validity of the argument that Christian baptism is a continuation or fulfilment of circumcision of the Old Testament.

To start our study, let us have an overall picture of circumcision.
Circumcision is a religious rite prescribed in the Hebrew Bible. It is mentioned nearly one hundred times in the Bible.
For the Jewish people it is an integral part of the Abrahamic covenant.
Circumcision was enjoined upon the Biblical patriarch Abraham, his descendants and their slaves as "a sign of the covenant" between God and him (Genesis 17:11).
Thus it is commonly observed by two Abrahamic religions, Judaism and Islam.
