The Story of the Empty Tomb

After Jesus was taken before the high-priest where he was ridiculed and the people spat upon him, he was taken before the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate, who ruled over Judea. He heard their complaints, but did not find any cause for putting him to death. But at last he yielded to their demands, although he declared Jesus was innocent of all wrong.

And so Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, gave command that Jesus should die by the cross. The Roman soldiers then took Jesus and beat him most cruelly; and then led him out of the city to the place of death. This was a place called “Golgotha” in the Jewish language, “Calvary” in that of the Romans; both words meaning “The Skull Place.” (more…)

The Story of the Betrayal

At the foot of the Mount of Olives, near the path over the hill toward Bethany, there was an orchard of olive trees, called “The Garden of Gethsemane.” The word “Gethsemane” means “oil press.” Jesus often went to this place with his disciples, because of its quiet shade. At this

garden he stopped, and outside he left eight of his disciples, saying to them, “Sit here while I go inside and pray.”

He took with him the three chosen ones, Peter, James, and John, and went within the orchard. Jesus knew that in a little while Judas would be there with a band of men to seize him; that in a few hours he would be beaten, and stripped, and led out to die. The thought of what he was to suffer came upon him and filled his soul with grief. He said to Peter and James and John:

“My soul is filled with sorrow, a sorrow that almost kills me. Stay here and watch while I am praying.” (more…)

The Story of Palm Branches

From Jericho, Jesus and his disciples went up the mountains, and came to Bethany, where his friends Martha and Mary lived, and where he had raised Lazarus to life. Many people in Jerusalem heard that Jesus was there, and they went out of the city to see him, for Bethany was only two miles from Jerusalem. Some came also to see Lazarus, whom Jesus had raised from the dead; but the rulers of the Jews said to each other:

“We must not only kill Jesus, but Lazarus, also; because on his account so many of the people are going after Jesus and are believing on him.”

The friends of Jesus in Bethany made a supper for Jesus, at the house of a man named Simon. He was called “Simon the leper”; and perhaps he was one whom Jesus had cured of leprosy. Jesus and his disciples, with Lazarus, leaned upon the couches around the table, as the guests; and Martha was one of those who waited upon them. While they were at the supper, Mary, the sister of Lazarus, came into the room, carrying a sealed jar of very precious perfume. She opened the jar, and poured some of the perfume upon the head of Jesus, and some upon his feet; and she wiped his feet with her long hair. And the whole house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. (more…)

The Good Shepherd and the Good Samaritan

Soon afterward Jesus gave to the people in Jerusalem the parable or story of “The Good Shepherd.”

“Verily, verily (that is, ‘in truth, in truth’), I say to you, if any one does not go into the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, it is a sign that he is a thief and a robber. But the one who comes in by the door is a shepherd of the sheep. The porter opens the door to him, and the sheep know him, and listen to his call, for he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out to the pasture-field. And when he has led out his sheep, he goes in front of them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. The sheep will not follow a stranger, for they do not know the stranger’s voice.”

The people did not understand what all this meant, and as Jesus explained it to them, he said: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door that leads to the sheepfold. If any man comes to the sheep in any other way than through me and in my name, he is a thief and a robber; but those who are the true sheep will not hear such. I am the door; if any man goes into the fold through me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture. (more…)

The world is getting chaos…

Earthquake is getting frequent…

Human trafficking is getting worse…

Human attitude is getting worse…

These are the facts that Book of Revelation tells us in the Bible, before Jesus comes, the world will be getting worse…. And yes, the world is getting worse.

But the question we should ask if the world is getting worse. The question we should ask is – “What are we doing now?”

Are we:
– still working hard for money?
– still working hard for your big houses?
– still working hard for your fast cars?
– still doubting about Jesus Christ if He is the Savior?
– still doubting if God really does exist?
– still committing sin?
– still living in lifestyle that you lived before becoming Christians?
– still not going to church?
– still not serving God?

Jesus is coming, what we are doing right now. We should bear the responsibilities when the Judgment Day came. We have to answer God what we have done for Him, even we know enough a lot of warnings to show us Jesus Christ is coming.

The Story of the Miracle Worker

There was at Capernaum an officer of the Roman army, a man who had under him a company of a hundred men. They called him “a centurion,” a word which means “commanding a hundred”; but we should call him “a captain. “This man was not a Jew, but was what the Jews called “a Gentile,” “a foreigner”; a name which the Jews gave to all people outside their own race. All the world except the Jews themselves were Gentiles.

This Roman centurion was a good man, and he loved the Jews, because through them he had heard of God, and had learned how to worship God. Out of his love for the Jews, he had built for them with his own money a synagogue, which may have been the very synagogue in which Jesus taught on the Sabbath days.

The centurion had a young servant, a boy whom he loved greatly; and this
boy was very sick with a palsy, and near to death. The centurion had heard that Jesus could cure those who were sick; and he asked the chief men of the synagogue, who were called its “elders,” to go to Jesus and ask him to come and cure his young servant. (more…)

The Story of the Sermon on Mount

Among the Jews there was one class of men hated and despised by the people more than any other. That was “the publicans.” These were the men who took from the people the tax which the Roman rulers had laid upon the land. Many of these publicans were selfish, grasping, and cruel. They robbed the people, taking more than was right. Some of them were honest men, dealing fairly, and taking no more for the tax than was needful; but because so many were wicked, all the publicans were hated alike; and they were called “sinners” by the people.

One day, when Jesus was going out of Capernaum, to the seaside, followed by a great crowd of people, he passed a publican, or tax-gatherer, who was seated at his table taking money from the people who came to pay their taxes. This man was named Matthew, or Levi; for many Jews had two names. Jesus could look into the hearts of men, and he saw that Matthew was one who might help him as one of his disciples. He looked upon Matthew, and said:

“Follow me!”

At once, the publican rose up from his table, and left it to go with Jesus. All the people wondered, as they saw one of the hated publicans among the disciples, with Peter, and John, and the rest. But Jesus believed that there is good in all kinds of people. Most of the men who followed him were poor fishermen. None of them, so far as we know, was rich. And when he called Matthew he saw a man with a true and loving heart, whose rising up to follow Jesus just as soon as he was called showed what a brave and faithful friend he would be. The first of the four books about Jesus bears Matthew’s name. (more…)
