What an amazing morning it must have been. Friday, everything looked so dark. Jesus, beaten and ridiculed, was led to the cross. They watched in horror and unbelief as the Roman soldiers nailed Him to the cross and hung him between two common thieves. All their dreams, trust, and belief died with Him on that […]

Psalm 80 reminds us that Israel was the “vine from Egypt,” that was to bless the nations of the world and proclaim the offer of salvation to all humanity.
