A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’ve studied what the Bible says about healing for years and years, and two things remain clear to me.  One is that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).   Another is He said anyone with faith in Him would do the things He did (John 14:12).

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

In our study of Matt. 5:21-48 (Be Perfect, Therefore, As Your Heavenly Father Is Perfect) I showed why I believe that Jesus, while not specifically addressing the Pharisees, certainly had them in mind when He explained what it would take to earn admittance into the Kingdom in one’s own strength.

The End Times According To Daniel … Part Three, Chapters 10-12
