Mary's Visit to Elizabeth and Return to Joseph

Mary's Visit to Elizabeth and Return to Joseph

December 12, 2019 5 min read

The passage of time, though precise in measurement, varies enormously in emotional experience. Time can “fly” or it can “drag.” Mary decides to make a quick trip to visit Elizabeth, the only other woman on earth who could understand what God was doing. It was a trip of eighty to a hundred miles by foot, which was the means of transportation for the poor. It would take the best part of a week for the journey—but joy makes time fly, and with joy she anticipates being with Elizabeth. About three months later Mary is going to make the return trip to home, to Nazareth, to Joseph. What a long trip that would be! Would Joseph believe her?

The Birth of John the Baptist, the Forerunner to the King

December 09, 2019 5 min read

Being the forerunner to the King elevated John above all people—he was in a category of one. But all who see Christ’s millennial kingdom established will occupy a higher place. To be there will be greater than to proclaim its coming. Christ’s teachings about John throughout His ministry are complex, but we’ll come to that later, as John’s life unfolds parallel to the life of Christ. Now, to observe his birth...

The Balkans by Bus

November 15, 2018 2 min read

To explain what makes Emmaus more effective in some countries than others is complicated. The Balkan countries are certainly a case study of complications: historically (many empires have dominated over the centuries), religiously (orthodoxy, Islam, atheism), politically (part of the Soviet Union for 70 years) and even divisionism among evangelical groups since freedom after 1989.
