Maybe the Apostles were Insane…have you ever thought about that? Acts 5.38-42
Were they suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Had they endured one too many floggings?
What was wrong with them, that they narrowly escape death, and go right back to defying what the authorities had required—STOP TEACHING ABOUT JESUS!
Respected Gamaliel, leader of the Sanhedrin—cast of 71—had just rescued the apostles, saying: “Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave…

The Takeaway. Acts 5.17-39
When I taught fourth grade, the last thing I did after the students put their chairs atop their desks, was ask them what they learned that day. Those called-on hands in the air were rewarded with a flying Jolly Rancher1 - all so that when their mums asked them what they learned in school, they could name at least one thing ... a takeaway.

Struggling, by any chance? another element of the ‘what is’ of the New Year
On my recent trip to Israel, I simply adored seeing the places where historical heroes of my faith lived, wrought the miraculous, prophesied, struggled and even warred. One such place was Ein Gedi, located west of the Dead Sea, near Masada and the Qumran Caves. The Bible records that 3000 years ago David hid from King Saul at this place.
