The NT365 Experiment: Mark 4

The NT365 Experiment: Mark 3

Great crowds followed Jesus throughout his ministry. People came from all over the ancient world to see him — to see his miracles, to hear his teaching, to touch him, to look him in the eyes. They wanted to know what he was all… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Mark 3”

The NT365 Experiment: Mark 2

Mark’s Gospel is action packed. He has little time for transition or editorial notes that provide further explanation for the life and stories of Jesus. This, I believe, is because he is  interested in getting us to the cross of Christ quickly so as… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Mark 2”

The NT365 Experiment: Mark 1

The NT365 Experiment: Acts 27

We’re back, and I’m glad to be back. I have missed this time over the past week though I greatly enjoyed chapters 21-26 and the narrative they tell. Chapter 27 begins where chapter 26 left off. Now, you will probably say, “Clint, that’s obvious,”… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Acts 27”

The NT365 Experiment: Acts 19-20

At the beginning of chapter 19, Luke tells us of… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Acts 19-20”

The NT365 Experiment: Acts 18

God does amazing and wonderful things! He is a great and awesome God who brings light into darkness, order to chaos, hope in despair, and life into death. This is no more clearly seen than in his work of saving sinners. The Apostle Paul… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Acts 18”

The NT365 Experiment: Acts 17

It is not uncommon for us to talk about motivation with people. We’ll talk about what does or does not motivate us — what motivates our children, what we think motivates our politicians or the leaders of our churches or our schools, etc. This is… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Acts 17”

The NT365 Experiment: Acts 16

Persecution and hardship are real. Paul faced them in his life as follower of Christ and many others have throughout out the history of the church. As I write, there are many men, women, and children around the globe being persecuted for the sake… Continue Reading “The NT365 Experiment: Acts 16”
