A Crucial mistake

HE IS RISEN

Mark 16:6 “’Don’t be alarmed’. He said: You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.” Sometimes people say that if they could only see a miracle they would believe. Some go further and say that the miracle must be […]

WHERE IS JESUS WHEN I NEED HIM?

Mark 5:36 Jesus told the synagogue ruler: “Don’t be afraid just believe.” The story in Mark 5:2-4 is full of interesting and mysterious things.
