If there is one person who is famous (or infamous) other than Jesus, he is no other than Judas. He was the accountant in their group, more like the treasurer who holds the money. Some lessons we can learn from him as we studied the book of Luke is… (more…)

Reading through the book of Luke, I realized that God is really at work in terms of salvation. This is something that he does, and not a work of man.
