In giving the laws for His people, God set several appointed “feasts of the Lord” for Israel to observe at specific times during the year (Leviticus 23).

The Number Nine in Scripture and History :: By Randy Nettles

The number 9 represents finality and/or judgment in the Bible, especially where Israel is concerned. It is a remarkable number in many respects. It is the last of the single-digit numbers in the decimal system and thus marks the end, and is significant of the conclusion of a matter. “Nine is akin to the number […]

Three Days and Three Nights :: By Randy Nettles

The timeline for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ has been debated for centuries, with no definitive proof for any one date suggested throughout history. However, I think there is circumstantial evidence for one date in particular, which we will discuss later in this article. The most commonly accepted year for the start of John the […]
