Holy Spirit Power
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice… “Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had […]

What was Old Testament music really like?
When the Bible speaks of King David singing with his harp, or of Temple worship, what did it sound like. Probably not so different to today's synagogue cantors, minus the modern instruments and amplifiers. Listen to them here.

Christmas: what was so special about the Bethlehem shepherds and their lambs.
