THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Herod the Great was obviously afraid. When the wise men spoke to him, he asked that they report back when they found the savior, Matthew 2:8. He said he wanted to worship Him also. It turns out very clearly that he was lying through his teeth. The wise men were warned divinely not to go back to Herod; and when he found out, he became angry and ordered the death of all the two year old and under male children in the region of Bethlehem, Matthew 2:16. The interesting thing to consider about this incident is why would a dictator order the death of all the male children if he did not believe in the coming of the savior and fear that coming. It is evident that Herod, though he was an Idumean/Edomite, knew the scriptures foretold that one would come who would be king over a united Israel, albeit a spiritual Israel. He believed those scriptures, so much so that he was willing to murder children to preserve his power and position. Horrible as it was, it should help to convince us that the Bible is true. Herod does not seem to be insane; he does seem to be afraid for himself. Such an action only serves to prove that Jesus was indeed the savior.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long email@example.com
