  1. Thank you, Steve, for another excellent article – and especially for translating “the Christ” as “Messiah” in Matthew 2:3-5, to make it clear ! How I wish English translators of the Bible had translated “christos” as “Messiah”, ( as they translated “kurie” as “Lord” ), instead of transliterating “christos” as “Christ”. Think of Peter’s confession, in Matthew 16:16, “Thou art the Messiah, ( HaMashiah ! ), the Son of the living God” ! Yes ! – I am Jewish, too ! GOD bless you !

  2. Thanks Steve for your clear message. Let God be true. It’s sad that evil men advance lies by twisting God’s Word. I’m a Gentile saved by God’s grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
    God bless you and the F. O. I.

  3. Thank you this article…IS…fantastic as is your magazine and ministry ….love it very encouraging …..god bless you and your ministry ……

  4. I am of Ephraim, and I am shocked at the blatant lies at the announcement that Jesus Christ IS a Palestinian. How crude and UNEDUCATED; they have shown themselves to be so unbiblical Palestinians and the Christians of the origin and birthplace of MY LORD and Saviour, Jesus Christ: arqud [they] speak falsely! There is no verb to be in Arabic; this a literal translation!
    Apart from the fact that you cannot change the Bible. What would they think of us if we made changes in the Quran??!!!

A Night in the Fields

Birth announcements are exciting. Parents share the news first with family, then with close friends, and later with the community. In the first century, however, it was unthinkable to send birth announcements to the poor and to those who held lower-class occupations, like shepherds...

The Incredible Incarnation

I have some Christian friends who do not celebrate Christmas. They object to the many pagan traditions that have crept into the holiday and argue that Jesus was not even born on December 25. I don’t disagree. They are quite correct...

Our Wonderful God of Christmas

For more than 50 years, Charles M. Schulz’s animated classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas, has touched millions of television viewers. In it, Charlie complains, “I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I'm not happy...

The Tyrant Who Tried to Kill Jesus

King Herod was a complex man. He was a brilliant builder and politician, yet a ruthless and brutal tyrant. He makes a brief appearance in Scripture as the cold-blooded killer of baby boys in Bethlehem and surrounding areas...
