On April 10, on Fox and Friends, Bill O’Reilly said: “No one knows if Jesus’ resurrection really happened.” If you were asked to prove the Resurrection as fact, could you? 1 Corinthians 15 includes the oldest-known New Testament passage... a CREED written shortly after the events that it records.

Many of God’s promises are amazing. In Matthew 6, verses 25-34, he who seeks the kingdom of God first is promised that “these things” (food, clothing, and shelter) will be provided.

While there are certainly some bad songs out there, some of them are VERY good!
Isaiah ("salvation of the LORD") wrote more prophecies about the Messiah than any other. This book is often called the Miniature Bible because its 66 chapters mimic the 66 books - there's even a shift at chapter 40 from law to grace, from judgment to hope (just like Malachi/Matthew - books 39-40).
