For those of you familiar with the Bible, I have produced a subsidiary blog to this one titled A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom. In it, I write about the same subjects covered in the primary blog but with much greater use of biblical language.
Some of you are Christian leaders. You may carry the title of pastor, minister, elder, preacher, teacher, director, bishop, pope, missionary, overseer, worship leader, youth leader, evangelist, president, CEO, or any one of innumerable other titles given to leaders in the movement of Christ. For this reason I can assume your famililarity with the Bible and speak in its terms.
Others of you hold no positions of authority in formal Christianity but are nonetheless familiar with the Bible. I include you, too, in the audience for this subsidiary blog. You will understand the language I use.
A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom will provide additional material to help you assimilate the truths of the primary blog in the language of the Bible. If you already know these truths He has provided, then this additional blog will merely be an encouragement to your faith. If, however, some of these ideas sound new to you, then they will further help you understand them. If you are a Christian leader, you will find your position of authority challenged by my positions; I hope the provision of the biblical material in this subsidiary blog will give you an even clearer expression of them. I owe you that.
Most of all, I hope that all of you who read the Bible will continue to do so guided by the Holy Spirit. If you do that, reading my blog (whether the primary one or the subsidiary one) will be superfluous.
To our Lord Jesus Christ be the glory…now and forever.
