This past Sunday, August 16th, 2015 – a Scottish man claiming to be a prophet ascended the steps in Grace Community Church and openly rebuked John MacArthur for his doctrine of cessationism.

John MacArthur demonstrated a quick wit and pastoral sensitivity as he explained to the congregation what had just happened.

The Bible Project – You will want to bookmark this ministry and perhaps stay connected with them through social media (FB | YouTube). This non-profit ministry is focused on teaching the Bible through motion graphics. Below you will see their Exodus overview. Having just completed a lengthy series through Exodus, I was impressed. I noticed a few things that I would not agree with in a couple of their videos that I’ve viewed, but just as with reading books – you watch with discernment and evaluate through the biblical lens. These videos have great potential for teaching children.
