EZEKIEL’S FAMOUS vision of the valley of dry bones has a deeper secondary meaning — a message for a supernatural audience that had conned Israel’s pagan neighbors into believing their ancestors were divine and could return to the land of the living.

WE CONTINUE our study of the most remarkable books of the Bible, 1 Corinthians. This week, we cover Paul’s instructions to the church concerning sexual immorality, lawsuits against fellow believers, the right of those in full-time ministry to earn their living in that calling, marriage and divorce, eating food sacrificed to idols, and taking the Lord’s Supper with an unrepentant heart.
We also discuss what Paul meant when he told the Corinthians that “we are to judge angels” (1 Cor. 6:3), and the puzzling verses (1 Corinthians 11:2-16) telling wives to “have a symbol of authority” on their heads, “because of the angels.”
THE TROUBLES of this world can be a huge obstacle to following Christ. Money, family, social status, possessions, and even religious tradition can distract us from prioritizing our lives in the proper order.
We also discuss the Parable of the Prodigal Son and the prophetic implications of Luke 17:20-37, which parallels Matthew 24:3-44. Luke adds “just as it was in the days of Lot” to the “days of Noah” reference we’re familiar with from Matthew. Does this mean a return of the Nephilim “who were on the earth in those days, and also afterward”?
