Who is the modern day Amos, standing up when others sit down, speaking up when others shut up? Greg Taylor shows five things we need to know about Amos, calling us to action today with the inspiration of a modern day Amos, Bryan Stevenson.
God could have chosen to incarnate as a king or a priest — someone with power and privilege. But Jesus, though he was equal to God, brought himself down, not just to the level of humanity, but what his community considered the lowest level of humanity
Jesus performed many miracles in the Bible. Afterward, he often commanded the people he helped to be silent, to not tell anyone about what happened. But people couldn’t keep quiet about the amazing things Jesus did for them.
James saw that Jesus preached the good news by living the good news. The commandment to love your neighbor isn’t a passive feeling of goodwill, but an action that is absolutely key to faith.
In today’s Journey Bible Project Blog, Greg Taylor shows how Jesus does not propose theories about the meaning of his death. He enacts concrete actions based in historical realities such as the Passover and the Exodus to show how he and his death are becoming the new liberation of Israel from the powers of evil.
