My name’s Dan and I share notes from sermons and Bible studies that cover most books of the Bible. I also blog about other aspects of church life or related topics I find interesting.
Whether you’re writing a talk or Bible study, or just wanting to increase your understanding of the Bible, I hope you find the site helpful. Do get in touch if you have any comments, questions or suggestions. I really would love to hear from you!
Verse 32 is key to this passage. Paul commits people that he loves to the word of God’s grace. He’s not leaving them with nothing. God and his word build Christians up If we want to become the building God wants us to be, we need to let him tell us where he wants us …
Matthew shows us how Jesus is fully human and over the course of their story, how Jesus is fully God. Christ is God’s chosen king. He’s a direct descendant of David and Abraham (see 1:1-17). God’s promises are being fulfilled in Jesus. Mary and Joseph were legally committed but not yet married. Joseph didn’t need …
John’s intention was to focus entirely on Jesus. When we writes these words, he’s an old man. He’s probably the last survivor of the apostles. His purpose in writing this gospel is clear (John 20:30-31). Who is Jesus? There’s no doubt that this whole passage is about Jesus, even though his name isn’t mentioned until …
My name’s Dan and I’m a Christian based in the UK, near Liverpool. Over the last decade or so, I’ve been involved with a couple of evangelical churches. I started this blog as a way of sharing notes I’ve taken during sermons or talks. I’ve also posted notes from Bible studies that I’ve led at midweek small groups.
The notes aren’t comprehensive by any means, but are intended as a brief guide to the passage. For more in-depth commentaries, check out Bible Hub or David Guzik’s excellent Enduring Word commentary (which I use extensively when preparing Bible studies).
I also write about other related topics that I find interesting. I like various Christian artists including Rend Collective and Matt Redman, as well as music produced by Bethel and Hillsong. I also love U2 and enjoy playing the piano.
I’m involved with children’s work at my church and help run a Venture camp in the summer.
I work as a software engineer and love technology. If you like, you can follow me on Twitter @thedanthomas or feel free to fill in the contact form. I’d love to hear from you!
