How Luther Pointed Me to Christ in the Old Testament

BY DONAVON RILEY

Jesus is the Word of God. God’s Word—on two legs. I’d read it in the first chapter of John’s Gospel many, many times. God’s Word was born, suffered, bled, and died for the sins of the whole world. It was all there in the Gospels. It was testified to in the New Testament Epistles.

BY KYLE G JONES

Though written in three languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek) by around 40 different people, over the course of 2,000 years, all of Scripture speaks with the same accent. The accent of Scripture emphasized that Christ is for you. Yes, you. He’s not for the perfect people of our imaginations.

How Luther Taught Me to Read the Bible

BY DONAVON RILEY

I’ve always been more at home in the Old Testament than in the New Testament. When I first came to believe that there was a God, I purchased and read the Koran. I had watched the movie, Malcolm X, a couple months before and thought, “If the Koran helped him straighten out his life, maybe it can help me too.”

"Touched" By God

BY DOMINICK SANTORE

Some days, people need a touch. Not just any touch, but something that says, "I care about you, and I love you." We don't need a 15 second hug because some statistics shows it releases endorphins and makes you feel better.
