    The Native: More Than A List Of Names

    Matthew 1:4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; Have you ever noticed the two lists, one in Matthew, and the other in Luke? They are genealogies. According to Scofield, Matthew lists Joseph’s lineage, and Luke lists Mary’s family. Luke mentioning Joseph because he was her husband. Some may wonder why The Lord took time to recite them all. Others may have wanted it to be filled with information about the Infant Christ. The wonderful thing is, God intentionally made a place for what others may think as just a register. To Him, this is more than a list of names. These were living, breathing…

    The Native: His First Words”

    Matthew 3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now:for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. A child’s first words are huge. I would guess that every parent remembers them. We don’t know what The Lord Jesus’ first words were, each Gospel chooses a different phrase to introduce us to The Master’s Voice. In Matthew, He is talking to John The Baptist. Suffer in the original means allow. Jesus is saying, Allow this now, for we are called to fulfill all righteousness. Mark 1:14-15 14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel…

    The Native: In The Order Of His Course

    Luke 1:5-8 5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife [was] of the daughters of Aaron, and her name [was] Elisabeth. 6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. 7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were [now] well stricken in years. 8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, He was “of the course of Abia”. This is something that I…

    The Native: In The Days Of The Hero

    This is our second post in our new Bible Study “The Native”. We hope that you enjoy, and follow along with us, as we explore the greatest birth in the history of the world. Luke 1:1 1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, This verse both refreshes and energizes me. It contains three words that are lacking from many parts of our culture. The phrase, “most surely believed among us,” reflects the conviction of the New Testament Church. Sadly, “most surely believed”, is noticeably absent from much of the modern world. Politicians…

    The Native

    As I write this today, there are 100 days until Christmas. It seems like the perfect day to start our second PruittWrites Bible Commentary. Only this one will not focus on one book, but rather a specific event, The Birth Of Christ. It examines the miraculous plan of God. The fact that the First Citizen Of Eternity became a citizen of Earth. He, whose innocence was so foreign to man, became The Son Of Man. We call it simply “The Native”. It will look at a combination of Scriptures. These include the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke, and the first chapter of John. Also the prophecies of His…

All of the profits will go to our church, Point Of Mercy, in Nashville, Tennessee. The funds raised will help to finish our new auditorium. We are really excited about what God has given us for this book. It takes the form of chapters which highlight areas of the book. Many look at Ruth as a short history of one family, but it is so much more. This family are the grandparents of David, and the…

    The Book Of Ruth 30 By 30

    As you know, for the last few months, we’ve been working on, and sharing part of a commentary on the book of Ruth. It is one of my favorite books of The Bible. It’s so rich in content, and provides the background on David’s family. We have wanted to bring this to you for some time, and are in the process of finishing it up now. As you know, I attend Church, and am on staff at Point Of Mercy in Nashville, Tennessee. We are blessed to feed a number of people every Sunday, both physically and spiritually. Our Church has literally outgrown our current facility. Rather than going in…
