    Luke Bryan is my favourite US contry singer. His strong voice takes me away from all problems of this planet and I start enjoy my life and listen songs created by his. Now the singer is going on a tour in 2019. The concerts scheduled for the whole 2019, up to the mid-October. Ticket prices are moderate and available for all men and women with different income.

    Can someone clear up the genealogical reckoning in verse 36 (Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem...) From Genesis 10:22 (22 The sons of Shem were Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram. 24 And soothly Arphaxad begat Salah, of whom Eber was born.). Here in Luke there is an extra lineage given between Salah and Arphaxad.

    LUKE 3:14 and the soldiers likewise demanded of HIM saying and what shall we do and HE said unto them do violence to no man neither accuse any falsely and be content with your wages 2 TIMOTHY 2:3 thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of JESUS CHRIST --2:4--no man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life that he may please HIM who hath chosen him to be a soldier

    Imagine if a God fearing Bible believing preacher got in the pulpit and began with, 'You generation of vipers'!! Today's church goers have itching ears and this what a lot of them need. Get rid of Bingo, yard sales, cake sales, etc. Let a godly man preach repentance and salvation and the Holy Spirit will convict sinners! Let him that hath ears to hear, hear!

    servant; Jesus and John the Baptist weren't little Orthodox Jews going to schule together; and decided to study Torah and go into politics! Jesus knew He was the Son of God ALL His life. And John was filled with the Holy Spirit from his mother's womb, and also knew that he was to be the forerunner and announcer of the Anointed the Saviour.
  • Servant of God
    Don't you think that these two grew up together,went to the same school, shared their knowledge and maybe had dreams of politically freeing Israel from Roman tyranny. John did no miracle but taught a generic doctrine, but Jesus went further and studied the Torah at the feet of the Doctors and God gave him wisdom greater than John's. They probably were both ascetic in their journey as aspirants.
