MEDICAL ACCOUNT OF THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS CHRIST
Wed., March 28th, 6:30pm; BHBC Worship Center
We’re putting the Revelation study on “pause” for one week.
In today’s modern church culture, believers are inclined to respect, yet avoid, the graphic brutality of the scourging and crucifixion of Christ. In short, the price for our redemption was immeasurable. And most of us would just as soon prefer to look away.
Placing emphasis on the importance of understanding the price God paid, Paul wrote to the Corinthian church, “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”
Jesus, while transforming the Old Testament Passover meal, by introducing God’s new covenant through Christ’s blood, into the what we commonly refer to as the Lord’s Supper, was clear when he used the broken bread as a metaphor for his broken body, and the wine as his blood shed for us, and said, “remember me.“
Please consider joining me this Wed. evening as we obey our Lord’s command and – remember…
Wed., evening, at 6:30pm, just prior to the study cited immediately above, our church will vote on the 2018-2019 BHBC Budget.

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST
I have not yet seen this one but am planning on seeing it this coming weekend. Matt Walsh writes a solid review of the movie here.
In way of further study of the life of Paul, allow me to recommend biographer, John Pollock’s, “The Apostle.” Also, N.T. Wright just published his book, “Paul.” I’ve read Pollock’s book (it’s wonderful), but not Wright’s – yet. 🙂
BEAR MILLS PODCAST
Recently I met Bear Mills after he attended a talk I gave at Lake Ridge Chapel titled, “The Suicide Epidemic: Awareness & Intervention.”
He contacted me shortly afterward, told me about his podcast on iHeart Radio which is heard all over the world, and asked if he could quote me on an upcoming talk he titled, “Lifting the Rug” (as opposed to those thorny topics we commonly “sweep under the rug.”) I listened (it’s about 25 minutes) and was impressed with Bear’s ability to articulate his thoughts clearly as well as follow a very logical progression.
He talks a great deal about depression. Interested? You can access the podcast here.
