Advent Part 1

by

Have you ever wondered how the 1st century Church celebrated the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ?

John 10:11,14: I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. In John 10 Jesus declared, “I am the good shepherd.” He feeds and cares for his people even to the point of laying down […]

I Am the Door of the Sheep

John 10:7-9: Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, […]
