Welcome to SolaScripturaToday!

SolaScripturaToday is devoted to the exposition and defense of the Word of God.

I have learned over the last nearly 50 years that the Bible is not truly honored by those who claim to fear and revere the Lord's name and Word. Instead, where there should be sound, solid exposition there is religious "fluff", entertainment or humanistic side-stepping around what the Scripture teaches—in favor of anything else, as long as it brings in contributors and/or makes people "feel good about themselves".

Here, you'll find detailed Bible exposition as well as biblical analysis, critique and rebuttals of those who claim to be "Christian" and "devoted to the Bible" but are, in reality, opposed to it and distort it at every opportunity. 

By design, the articles on my site are not "light reading"; they demand careful reflection.

It is likely that as you read and consider the Bible exposition on this site you'll come to the same conclusion that I have: the "Christian" church in America is in real trouble and bears essentially no resemblance to the pattern for the Body of Christ set forth in the Scripture. Like the ancient church in Ephesus, the modern church has "left [its] first love", the Lord Christ. (Eph 2.4)

At this time there are five main categories (as shown in the left column:
Ecclesiology, Eschatology, Theology, History and Of Interest

The Day of the Lord


The Bible phrase "The Day of the Lord" is reserved to describe that time during which the LORD's wrath against sin begins and runs to completion. It will be a terrifying time spanning several years, so severe and deceptive that no one would be able to survive it if if the LORD did not "cut it short for the sake of His elect". (Mat 24.21-24)

Additionally, in yet another demonstration of the carelessness of modern, professing "Christians" who use this phrase as a reference for Sunday, this series will show that, within the NT, Sunday is always described as "the first day of the week" and never as "the Lord's Day".

This series will expound this powerful phrase from both the Old and New Testament Scriptures.

The Myth of the Friday Crucifixion of the Lord Christ
 


Despite the Lord Christ's clear statement that He would be "three days and three nights in the heart of the earth" (Mat 12.40), many professing Christians thoughtlessly maintain the myth that the Lord was crucified on Friday (and died before sunset), was in the tomb throughout Saturday, then rose early Sunday morning—a period of two nights and one day!

This is nothing less than deliberate contempt for the Lord Christ and His Word!

The testimony of the gospels is clear, consistent, beautiful and elegant: the Lord Christ was entombed exactly "three days and three nights" exactly as He foretold.

The Myth of the Friday Crucifixion of the Lord Christ expounds this topic from both Old and New Testament Scripture. It includes detailed tables and chronologies which can also be downloaded as reference PDFs. It also presents an interactive master harmony and chronology of those last 11 days of the life of the Lord Christ.

There are 3 helpful PDF downloads within this article:

Passover Sequence: a table illustrating all possible days of the week on which the Passover could have occurred (to prove that the Lord Christ was crucified on Wednesday).

Passover Timeline: a table detailing the last 12 days of the life of the Lord Christ up to and including the resurrection.

An Abbreviated Harmony of the Gospels: a table detailing by chapter/verse the information in the previous tables.
