Jesus and Jonah, Part 2

In part one, we saw that God used resurrection to affirm the work of both Jesus and Jonah. Jesus even stated that Jonah provided a sufficient sign of God’s authority (Matt. 12:38-42Luke 11:29-32).

Jesus and Jonah, Part 1

When we travel, we rely on signs to get us to our destination. But sometimes we don’t see signs because they are hidden, poorly lit, or simply unreadable.

The Resurrection of Christ Transforms Lives Part 1

My brother and I owned a dilapidated 1983 Toyota truck in high school. Despite the scratched paint and many repair issues, its worst fault was the trouble it took to get started.

All that trouble was the result of a simple problem—a disconnection from the power source.
