Bible Speaks Today, Old Testament (BST): The Message of Lamentations

by Christopher J. H. Wright

The destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 587 BC is the likely setting for the book of Lamentations.

Bible Speaks Today, Old Testament (BST): The Message of Ezekiel

by Christopher J. H. Wright

Ezekiel comes to us as a stranger from a distant time and land. Who is this priest who, on his thirtieth birthday, has a dazzling vision of God on a wheeled throne?

Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament

by Christopher J. H. Wright

We cannot know Jesus without knowing his story. Today the debate over who Jesus is rages on. Has the Bible bound Christians to a narrow and mistaken notion of Jesus? Should we listen to other gospels, other sayings of Jesus, that enlarge and correct a mistaken story? Is the real Jesus entangled in a web of the church's Scripture, awaiting libera… Read more…
