In the Bible, what are some themes about liberation? I am in that process.

The book of Exodus records that the whole nation of Israel was living in bondage under the Egyptians. Israel’s liberation came from God through the leadership of Moses.

What is Christmas?

Christmas is celebrated as the anniversary of baby Jesus’s birth. The word “Christmas” is formed from “Christ mass”- meaning a Catholic mass. However, today, most people do not associate a mass with Christmas. ​

The first mention of Saul’s name change to Paul is in Acts 13:9, “Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him.” He is always called Paul thereafter. The Scriptures do not explain how or why Saul’s name was changed, only that he became known as Paul.

Saul’s parents […]

The word “deacon” is from the Greek […]
