mid-week apologetics booster (7-28-2016)

Good morning dearly loved children of the Living God!

It’s been a busy week for me as I finished preparing and delivering teaching on Deuteronomy 25 this past Tuesday.  If you would like to see what I taught, take a look here.  In the meantime, I did do some other reading and research – primarily on how the Bible, though written by men, is the Word of God. This research was targeted to help someone I’ve been mentoring deal with a very specific objection he’d received recently. Here are those links:

John 18:4-11 – Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, “Who is it you want?”  “Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “I am he,” Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)  When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground.  Again he asked them, “Who is it you want?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”  “I told you that I am he,” Jesus answered. “If you are looking for me, then let these men go.”  This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: “I have not lost one of those you gave me.”  Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant’s name was Malchus.)  Jesus commanded Peter, “Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?
