Q: In what sense is Jesus a prophet like Moses (Deut 18:18)?

Question:

I wanted to ask about how JESUS OUR LORD fulfilled the prophecy of the PROPHET LIKE MOSES. Did Moses mean he would be like him in life similarities such as his infancy in Egypt, being rejected, etc. or more because of the miracles he worked? Thanks in advance,

"God, Women and Sexuality" -- Los Angeles Women’s Event

On June 25, "God, Women and Sexuality" was the title and topic of our Coastal Los Angeles regional women's service with Dr. Jennifer Konzen as guest speaker. I am not sure I can do justice to just how impacting this workshop was to all who attended.

"Five Years: When Someone We Loved Had Cancer": New Book on Processing Grief

My mom was diagnosed with Stage III nasopharyngeal cancer in July 2011. The doctors told her that unless she underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy everyday for three months, she would die in six months. However, our family found a treatment protocol far better than what the doctors suggested—and that was hope. That hope for mom to get well motivated us so much to care for her together, even in the most difficult stages of her illness.

John Oakes Reports on Missionary Teaching Trip to Africa

Lagos Nigeria, June 28-July 3

This is my fourth visit to Lagos. It is a sprawling city on the western coast of Nigeria with a population of just over twenty million. It is the economic and cultural heart of the most populous country in Africa. This is a very religious city, with a church on almost every corner. Most of the billboards advertise various churches. The form of Christianity here is prosperity gospel, with a charismatic flavor. The traffic here is legendary, but it is not a legend: It is true. However, I see many improvements from my past visits. Drivers have begun to obey traffic laws and the streets are in much better condition. The government here is very corrupt, but it is good to see that things have at least turned in a better direction. Of course, Nigeria is going through a very troubled time with the battle against Boko Haram militants, but this fighting is far away in the north of the country, where Islam is the dominant religion. The dominant religion in the south is Christianity.
