There are various dimensions of what people often call “spiritual warfare,” but one dimension we sometimes miss is the mundane, day-to-day way we treat each other and walk with God … things like truth, justice, faith, sharing our faith, and so forth. That is, some of the very things that Ephesians 6 discusses when it […]

How can we speak of more than one “person” within the Trinity? And what implications does this idea have for our lives? Here I’m not summarizing biblical evidence for the Trinity; this is easily done but it is frequently provided elsewhere. Instead I’m trying to offer one window into what we may mean when we […]

Craig wrote a four-volume commentary on Acts, the fourth volume of which is scheduled to come out in 2015. But aside from making Craig tired, the commentary all put together is unusually heavy.

Genesis 38:27-30 explains that Tamar gave birth to twin sons for Judah. One, Zerah, extended one hand from the womb, but then […]
