No man knows the future, and yet the prophets of the Old Testament correctly foretold many things about the coming Messiah. One of those prophets, Micah, gives a specific detail about where the Messiah will be born...

Here is a quick question for you: who was the first person Paul led to the Lord? Well, no one knows for sure...

The very first translation of the Hebrew Bible was made into Greek, probably as early as the third century BC. This, the so-called Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek, is traditionally dated to the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt (285-246 BC)...

The Arch of Titus commemorated the triumphal procession by the Roman army after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple and also memorialized the apotheosis (deification) of Titus; but what of the olive trees?

The voice of the Tanach, the Hebrew OT, is simple and clear—the Israelites crossed the yam suph. Yam is “sea,” suph1 is “reeds”; together, they mean “Sea of Reeds.”

Several years ago an intensive investigation of human remains, purported to be those of St. Luke (author of the Third Gospel and the book of Acts) were undertaken by an international team of over 30 experts from various disciplines, including numismatics (coins), metallography, chemistry, crystallography, and epigraphy (ancient scripts). After nearly ten years of work, the results were announced in worldwide press accounts. The New York Times, in an article entitled 'Body of St. Luke Gains Credibility' (Oct. 16, 2001), summarized the results of the research. It was the culmination of efforts initiated by the Bishop of Padua (Italy) and the Catholic Church.

About twenty years or so before Pontius Pilate assumed control of Judea, a procurator by the name of Caponius was installed by Rome. The year was 6 AD. His governorship would set in motion the fulfillment of one of the most important predictions found in the Bible. To understand this, we need to go back to an event that took place 1850 years or so before the birth of Christ.

Jesus spent much time on and around the Sea of Galilee with His fishermen-disciples. These disciples, who gave up all to follow Him (Lk 5:11), were good sailors. They knew the lake and its harbors well. The Gospels often refer to their maritime activities and the harbors they used. Now, for the first time in recent history, information on the harbors used by Jesus and His disciples has come to light. Sixteen harbors and anchorages have been identified and surveyed by the late Mendel Nun, a fisherman from Kibbutz Ein Gev (Nun 1989a). I am deeply indebted to him for sharing his wealth of knowledge concerning the lake and its history.
