People of Faith (Naaman & Josiah)

In the Bible we have all kinds of people that show certain characteristics that should be examples to us. We have been going through a series of looking at these people and learning from them. We first learned from Reuben’s experience. Now we will learn from two other men, Naaman and Josiah. 

People of Faith (Reuben)

There are people in the Bible we all know and love. Abraham, Moses, David, and so many others. We tell children stories of these people and their heroic acts. However, there are some lesser known people in the Bible that don’t get as much credit as they deserve. They can teach us many things about…

Israelite Festivals

The Israelite community had several aspects of their life that were set apart from other nations around them.

Life becomes better, decisions become easier, or at the very least we can learn what wisdom is and how it affects our lives. Proverbs teaches us many…

The Number 10

There are certain patterns in the Bible or certain themes we run across as we read the story of God’s redemption and grace for humanity. Numbers hold significance and meaning in the Bible. Certain numbers like 3, 7, or 12 may be more well-known numbers from Scripture. But there is another number that holds incredible…
