Reflection. How to grow the Church, according to the Bible.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

In chapter 2 of the book of Acts tells the fullness of the Holy Spirit on the early church at Pentecost . From how much there is to write and meditate on this opportunity just want to refer to a single aspect (which perhaps is one that is not touched almost never) : The type of preaching that gave Pedro.

The sermon of the apostle was decidedly confrontational and exhortation :
36 . » Know, then , certainly all the house of Israel that God has made Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified . «

Study. A brief reflection on the Book of Job. By Sergio Bodo


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Job

Job could say that presents Christ as our Redeemer , » I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall be my lawyer here on earth » ( 19:25 NIV version ) . Job sees him as the » Goel » , which is the kinsman redeemer and not a distant God and strange.

Title

The book takes its name from the main character, Job. It is not clear the meaning of the word » Job» , although some scholars think that means » object of enmity » or «the returning ( to God ) » . Should be considered merely as a common name back then and meaningless.

Date and background events

There are indications that lived Job in patriarchal period and perhaps was contemporary of Abraham. Alusi6n No one in the book to life and misi6n of Israel , the covenant , the tabernacle and the priesthood. We will see the patriarchal conditions in which the family is the social and communal .
Like the patriarchs described in Genesis, Job and Family head priest and intercessor serves .
Worship is limited to its most primordial religious rites in a simple way (see 1:5, 42:8 ) .
All this presupposes a time prior to the organization of Israel as a nation.

The reference to cattle as wealth of Job, also seems to indicate the time before the founding of the great empires in Mesopotamia. If it was written in that period , is the oldest book of the Bible .

Reflection. Why do the righteous suffer ? By Fabian Massa


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

There is a question that has remained unanswered always: Why do the righteous suffer ? In the collective unconscious [1 ] is set to the belief that the righteous should be good and bad evil. In all ancient cultures the gods reward the good and punish the bad , considering that the value of good or bad is not always consistent with the biblical concept of good and evil .
For anyone who has read the book of Job , the question » Why all this could have happened if Job was a good man ? » is practically required .
On a religious level as that of the three friends of Job, it was inconceivable that a just pass him such tremendous calamities. According to his way of thinking (which is still in force in society and in the Church even today , 4,000 years later ) Job was hiding a dark past and sinful in the extreme , the only way to justify the «punishment» of God about his life .

Reflection. The Bible and Population Genetics . By Fabian Massa.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

26. He created a single principle , the whole human race to dwell on all the face of the earth, having determined times and the boundaries of where they would live.

Acts 17.26 . Jerusalem Bible [1 ]
According to population genetics [2 ] all current men (Homo sapiens ) are descended from a single ancestor. This common ancestor , according to this theory , would have lived in central Africa – Western back 90,000 years ago . Science Y Chromosomal Adam baptized him in a direct allusion to the biblical Adam [3 ] .
Why geneticists say this? Because all men have in our genome the Y chromosome, and this proves that genetically we are descended from the same ancestor . It is ultimately the same as the Bible says , but starting from a different point and approach differently .
According to population genetics , in the same way that the Y chromosome is inherited from the father , this theory states that mitochondria (cell bodies that supply most of the energy for cellular activity ) is maternally inherited . This necessarily implies that humanity had a single female ancestor : Mitochondrial Eve . Sigue leyendo

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Pastors Claudio and Betty Freidzon, King of Kings Church of Belgrano – Buenos Aires, Argentina. http://claudiofreidzon.org/

This post is based on the message of Pastor Claudio Freidzon on Saturday July 20, 2013.

A. Introduction
Pastor Claudio began his speech by referring to Friendship Day, since it was always highly valued friendship and the Bible talks about its importance. The pastor chose the following passage:
At any time friend loves to help the brother born for adversity. Proverbs 17.17 NIV.
This text expresses an ideal, a perfect friend who will never fail us nor forsake us. Thing is humanly impossible. But Jesus came to fulfill this Word, He is faithful and true friend:
  • Jesus reveals to us the whole Word of God (John 15:15)
  • Jesus gives us life because He is the Life (John 14:6)
  • Jesus gave us the greatest proof of love possible, giving His life for ours (John 15:13)
  • Jesus gave his promise to be with us always (Matthew 28:20)
