The Graceless Man

“Jesus taught a parable that exposed the graceless heart of the religious leaders. Rightly identifying the graceless man is good for us. If we know what he looks like, we can identify him in ourselves and ask God to help us grow in grace.”

A Digital Archive of Slave Voyages

This is quite a resource from Smithsonian. “To document this enormous trade – the largest forced oceanic migration in human history – our team launched Voyages: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, a freely available online resource that lets visitors search through and analyze information on nearly 36,000 slave voyages that occurred between 1514 and 1866.”

John MacArthur: “Paul’s charge to Timothy is carefully focused. He doesn’t tell Timothy to be innovative. He doesn’t encourage him to adapt his style to the fads and fashions of secular culture. He doesn’t employ words like fresh, original, or imaginative, the verbal glue that binds so many twenty-first-century church-growth strategies together.”
