It Was the Serpent!

August 12, 2013 - David Lang — In preparing for a Sunday School class, I was reading the account in Genesis 3 of God's interrogation and sentencing of Adam, Eve, and the serpent. I've read this passage many times before and am pretty familiar with it, but the English translation I was reading helped me notice something new.

However, most translations render Eve's confession as a simple statement of fact: "The serpent deceived me ...

Sergius Paulus and Pisidian Antioch

August 09, 2013 - David Lang — Last week, my wife and kids participated in Vacation Bible School at our church. This has had two ongoing effects on our family. First, they brought back a cold which has inexorably worked its way through every member of the family! Second, since the VBS curriculum took several lessons from the life of Paul, they have come back with a lot of questions about Paul's conversion, his missionary journeys, and his imprisonment. We have therefore been spending time in family devotions surveying the chapters in Acts which deal with Paul's life and ...

Accordance to Keynote, Part 3

August 01, 2013 - David Lang — Last month, I began a series of posts on getting information from Accordance into a Keynote presentation. In part 1 of that series, I surveyed some of the resources I've been using most often in my development of a Keynote presentation for teaching Sunday School. Among the resources I highlighted were resources with lots of great visuals like the Carta books which are currently on sale. Now that we've released several titles from Rose Publishing, I'm now using those books as well. In part 2 of that series, I showed you how to get formatted ...
