The book of Revelation is super confusing for a lot of people, and I can understand why. The apostle John uses layer upon layer of rich symbolism and so many subtle allusions to the Old Testament that it would take years of careful studying and reading to begin to even catch a few of the… Continue reading Revelation and Adam

I think we worship a God… Continue reading Why Typology?
“Therefore, if anybody is in Christ-a new creation! The old has passed away and the new has come.” – St. Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, 5:17 The Evangelists who wrote our Bibles record some incredible information about the death and resurrection of Christ, but some of it doesn’t seem to make much sense from the… Continue reading Resurrection Sunday: A New Creation
