The Journey Bible Project Blog is offered to you with the firm belief that God changes lives when we open our Bibles one chapter at a time and our hearts one day at a time.

PSALM 3: CAN GOD PROTECT US FROM ENEMIES?

Can God protect us from our enemies? In Psalm 3 today, we see David asking God to protect him from one of his enemies: David's own son.

PSALM 2: WHY ARE THE NATIONS RAGING?

Why are the nations so angry? Why do they plot in vain against one another and against God? They all think they are on the "right" side, but God laughs.

PSALMS: VIDEO BY THE BIBLE PROJECT

Watch this helpful video from The Bible Project folks on Psalms. Our goal for The Journey Bible Project for the Psalms is straightforward and important: experience worship of Yahweh in Psalms by writing blogs on each Psalm, reading them in worship and in homes and Bible studies, and preaching from them.

PSALM 1: HOW DO I FIND TRUE HAPPINESS?

So we start Psalms today. We'll be here for many weeks and go through them and learn about them, but more we'll experience them. For example, we'll learn how important it is to read Psalms aloud.

EXODUS 2: DOES GOD HEAR US WHEN WE CRY?

What is God willing to do to rescue his people? In today's Journey Bible Project Blog, we begin with what may be the most important theme of the Old Testament: God's rescue of His people, the Exodus.

EXODUS 1: WHAT WILL GO DO TO RESCUE US?

What is God willing to do to rescue his people? In today's Journey Bible Project Blog, we begin with what may be the most important theme of the Old Testament: God's rescue of His people, the Exodus.

MATTHEW 28: JESUS APPEARS TO WOMAN

Palmer Chinchen points out that Jesus's funeral speeches were really short. Two words: Get up. What did the Father say to the Son when crucifixion and sabbath in a tomb was passed and Sunday morning came?

MATTHEW 27: WALKING DEAD!

One of the often missed details of the crucifixion is the impact on the earth itself and the dead people living inside.

GENESIS 27: DYING WELL

In today's Bible Project devotional, Chris Altrock explores dying well from Genesis 27.

    MATTHEW 26: BETTER IF HE HAD NOT BEEN BORN

    The tragic events of Matthew 26--including the actions of a man about which it is said, "better if he had not been born--are precisely the same events that give us hope that God would rather die for us than live without us. 

    MATTHEW 25: I CAN'T GET THIS STORY OUT OF MY HEAD

    One of the most remarkable stories of Jesus is found in today's Journey Bible Project Blog, "The Sheep and the Goats," from Matthew 25. What did Jesus mean for his first hearers to do? What are we to do with this tragic, hopeful story?

    MATTHEW 24: WHAT ABOUT THE RAPTURE?

    Will Jesus Christ return to the earth? When? The disciples wanted to know. In Matthew 24, one of this week's readings in The Journey Bible Project, Jesus answers the questions the disciples ask, and Greg Taylor addresses some of the questions we ask today about the rapture and AD 70 and provides videos of other biblical scholars on this important topic.

    MATTHEW 23: HORROR READING FOR CHURCH LEADERS!

    Today's Journey Project Blog is horror reading for church leaders. Today's photo does not represent the person delivering the horrible words, but this photo represents church leaders who receive the horrible words. The deliverer of the horrible words is Jesus.

    MATTHEW 22: WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMAND?

    In today's Journey Bible Project Blog, we find the religious leaders hammering Jesus with trick questions. How well did their trick questions work on Jesus?

    MATTHEW 21: LOOK! YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU!

    Matthew the Evangelist points back to the prophet Zechariah's poignant words about what's about to happen when Jesus enters Jerusalem. He rides into Jerusalem on a young donkey. Listen, the prophet says, "Your King is coming to you. He is gentle; he is riding on a donkey." His first actions were not so gentle, as Greg Taylor discusses in today's Journey Bible Project Blog.

    MATTHEW 20: HOW CAN I BE IMPORTANT?

    Jesus tells his disciples he's going to Jerusalem, and he tells them exactly what is about to happen: he will be betrayed by one of them, handed over and crucified, but he will rise from the dead on the third day. In today's Journey Bible Project Blog, watch how the disciples respond to this news.

    GENESIS 26: WAITING FOR GOD TO MAKE ROOM FOR YOU

    In today's Bible Project devotional, Chris Altrock looks at Genesis 26 and what it means to wait on God to make room for you.

      MATTHEW 19: ON DIVORCE

      Jesus doesn't talk about every detail of life so that we can somehow program our relationships and religious practices. He instead teaches how to fulfill the law in a way of the Spirit, what Jesus and Paul call the more "perfect" way of love that uses wisdom, compassion, and justice in everything. In today's Journey Bible blog, Greg Taylor discusses how Jesus deals with the thorny issues of divorce and marriage.

      MATTHEW 18: HOW TO GAIN A BROTHER OR SISTER

      Conflict. How do we handle it as Christ followers? In today's Journey Bible Project blog post, Jesus shows us how.

      MATTHEW 18: WHY ARE CHILDREN SO IMPORTANT TO JESUS?

      Why are children so important to Jesus? In today's Journey Bible Project blog, Greg Taylor explains why children are part of the kingdom vision of Jesus.
