Why and How Theology Matters

Why and How Theology Matters

This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. 1 CORINTHIANS 4:1-2 I have a secret shame. I always feel better—cleaner, revitalized—after reading theology, even poor theology, as it caresses and probes every crevice of the unknowable. John Updike, Roger’s […]

Bible study: Was the resurrection body of Jesus spiritual or physical?

One of the leading naturalistic attempts to account for Jesus’ death, empty tomb, post-mortem appearances, and the early proclamation of the resurrection is that the disciples had individual and group hallucinations.

Christ in You, the Hope of Glory

Christ in You, the Hope of Glory

Christ in You, the Hope of Glory Christ, and Christ alone, is the hope of glory. I first heard these words from my dad (Rev. ISLO Ezigbo, a retired ECWA minister) during my teenage years.
