Everything was fulfilled in the Ressurection and the grave time of Jesus. This is part 2 out of 2 for our two-part blog about how Old Testament biblical prophecies were fulfilled in the Crucifixion and Ressurection of Jesus Christ, celebrating Good Friday and Easter (Ressurection Day). This blogpost (part 2) talks about how prophecies were fulfilled in Jesus's time where he was dead and his ressurection. You can check out part 1 about the Crucifixion and Death's fulfilment of prophecies.
While Jonah may seem distant, having lived hundreds of years before Jesus, his account provides an interest…

Resurrection Sunday, most commonly called “Easter,” is the annual holiday in which the resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated. Often the true reasons for celebration of this day are forgotten, as both the event itself and the Bible are disregarded. Often not only the biblical significance of the suffering but also of the Resurrection is neglected. In followup to our blog for Christmas we are going to discuss the Passion, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the perspective of biblical prophecy and foreshadowing.
One of the best examples of prophecies of Jesus’s crucifixion …

Risen was a well scripted screenplay depicting the angst faced by the Romans in the light of the lie foisted on them by the Sanhedrin. What was Pilate to believe? He had tried to keep the fanatics calm by killing Jesus, only to hear that the body had been somehow stolen by the very cowards who had run away from the crucifixion.
The depiction of the awful conditions surrounding the crucifixion , including the probable shallow grave for victims nearby, requires an “PG-13” rating, as does the brutality of Roman soldiers putting down a rebellion among the Jews. However, in this, the truth of the sc…Read more >
It is almost time for Christmas- or Christ mass - which literally means the celebration of Jesus and in particular His birth. While we can and should rejoice at both his birth and his resurrection year around, Christmas is the time where families designate their time to come together in celebration of the birth of Jesus. Since we are the Bible Wiki, Christmas is an excellent opportunity for us to create some special events and write about Jesus outside of the mainstream content all while celebrating his birth. This year Henry (SouthWriter) and I are co-writing this blogpost below. We not only …Read more >
"Samuel was a judge and prophet of God who led Israel for over forty years. Samuel also anointed the first king of Israel, Saul, and his successor David. Samuel possibly wrote the books of Judges,Ruth,and large portions of First Samuel.
Born as the answer to the prayers of his mother, his name reflected this. The name Samuel means "God has heard." A Nazarite from birth, Samuel began service as a young child under the tutelage of the high priest Eli at an early structure at Shiloh which served as the temple in those days.
By the time Eli had died, Samuel had already begun his career as a judge over the land. He worked a large circuit which included Bethel, Gilgal and Mizpeh. In his later years he anointed his sons to judge in the far south, on the boarder at Beer-Sheba.
When his sons, Joel and Abiah, proved to be corrupt judges, the people of Israel demanded a king. Against Samuel's wishes, he followed the direction of the LORD and anointed Saul to be king. When Saul failed to live up to the standard that God had included in the Law, a new king was chosen--a man not even alive when Saul began his forty year reign. This man was anointed to be the next king years before Saul died in battle. That man was David, son of Jesse.
Samuel died sometime during Saul's years of pursuing David, but the disgraced king would see the old prophet one more time. When the king found that he could no longer talk to God--he had killed the priesthood, leaving only one, who was with David--he sought out a spiritist, a witch at Endor. To her surprise, apparently, the witch was able to call up the ghost of Samuel. At that point Samuel informed Saul that he would die the next day.." ...Read More
