The Claims of Jesus Sunday, April 7, 2019
John 8:46-59The claims of Jesus are colossal. Those whom Jesus called children of the devil were so theologically and spiritually blind that they alleged that Jesus was in league with Satan oblivious to the fact that they were themselves the devil’s captives.Only the truly regenerate can receive spiritual truth and recognize Jesus for who he is (John 8:47). Jesus was not yet fifty so how could he claim to possess and donate life that will never see death? The Jews were acutely sensible of the meaning of Christ’s words and utterly incredulous and outraged.

A Born Again Episcopalian This superb biography of Charles Petit McIlvaine is exactly what is needed at this time. Long overdue attention is at last given to one of the greatest and most gifted servants of Christ and country that this nation has produced. McIlvaine was a stalwart defender and advocate of Reformational orthodoxy in his day and an influence for righteousness and stability when the viability of the United States was in question. Restored to deserved prominence he can once again show the way to church and citizenry. The man himself is sympathetically and honestly portrayed with great pastoral benefit to those who read about him. The account of his faith and spiritual struggles is immensely encouraging. His efforts for the cause of Christ invigorate present day believers for the task at hand in contending for the truth of divine revelation.
