In today’s class we take up the subject: The Prayers of Jesus, exploring not WHAT He prayed, but HOW. Is it more appropriate to pray aloud, or to contemplate our petitions in silence? Is there a correct biblical posture for praying? We explore an unusual subject today … on Faithbuilders.
The Mount of Olives, just east of Jerusalem, is one of the most important landscapes in Christianity.

The word, “dispensationalism”describes a theological perspective on God’s relationship with us, the human family.

It’s an important subject … today, on Faithbuilders.
As we struggle through the day, sometimes it seems that our lives are cursed. C3PO said it best: “We seem to be made to suffer, it’s our lot in life.” If you’re wondering whether or not YOU are cursed, stay tuned. That’s the big question we take up today, on Faithbuilders.

When we compare the four gospels to one another, something becomes obvious immediately: they’re really different! However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise: Our spouse, children, and grandchildren, neighbors, and co-workers all have a different relationship with us, and this impacts their perspective about us. The same can be said about the relationship between Jesus and His earliest disciples, four of whom became the writers of the gospels in our Bible. The unique relationships with, and therefore perspectives on, this most important Life ever lived in turn impacted the stories each told. In God’s infinite wisdom, He then saw that it was important that we have the benefit of four witnesses, not just one.
