Many of us are fascinated with life after death which causes us to wonder about marriage in heaven. Did you know that Jesus addressed this question? In Matthew 22:23–33, the Sadducees tried to test Jesus with this very subject...even though they didn’t even believe in life after death. They simply wanted to trap Him.
In his second letter to Timothy, Paul wrote that “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Christians from the apostles until now have, like Paul, regarded Scripture as central to the life and growth of the Church.
But even though we know its importance to our lives, too often our knowledge and application of Scripture remain minimal. Why? Perhaps sitting down to study the Bible might seem intimidating, or it could just be difficult to carve out some devotional time. Maybe you have questions about the Bible, but you aren’t sure where to look for answers.
Let these tools, articles, audio sermons, and resources help you incorporate the Scriptures more fully into your life.

Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem during the last week of His life signalled a kingly triumph in both obvious and not-so-obvious ways. Yet it was important in every way, nonetheless, and its details are preserved for us in Matthew 21:1–11, which kick-starts the most climactic week in Jesus’ life...and in history.
