Exegesis (/ˌɛksəˈdʒiːsɪs/; from the Greek ἐξήγησις from ἐξηγεῖσθαι, "to lead out") is an explanation of a text, particularly a religious text. Traditionally the term was used primarily for work with the Bible; however, in modern usage "biblical exegesis" is used for greater specificity to distinguish it from any other broader critical text explanation. Exegesis is the expository investigation into the history and origins of the text, but may include the study of the historical and cultural backgrounds for the author, the text, and the original audience.

False Doctrine of the Sinner's Prayer

    Audio Sermon (MP3)
Sermon by Bro. Eric Jenkins

The "Sinner's Prayer" :  "Heavenly Father, I know I've sinned against you and that my sins separate me from you. I am truly sorry. I now want to turn away from my sinful past and turn to you for forgiveness. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, that He was raised from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become my Savior and the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You and to convict me when I sin. I pledge to grow in grace and knowledge of you. My greatest purpose in life is to follow your example and do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

Passover and Pentecost: Christ and the Church

    Audio Sermon (MP3)
Sermon by Bro. Manuel Santiago

Exodus 12:1-30 God's institution of the Lord's Passover; Leviticus 23:1-17 Feast of the first fruits of the wheat harvest ( Pentecost) cf Exodus 34:22; Genesis 4:1-5 Abel offers the firstling of the flock and Cain offers of the fruit of the ground. Why did God respect Abel's offering and not Cain's? Matthew 23:35 Abel was righteous and faithful cf Hebrews 11:4. Therefore Abel offered a more excellent sacrifice than Cain; John 3:12 Cain was evil and wicked. Would Cain's offering have been accepted if his works were good? Malachi 3:3 (1-3); If he offered the first fruits? Leviticus 5:11 (7-13) concerning sin offerings  cf Leviticus 2:1ff concerning meat offerings. Matthew 5:23-24; Genesis 4:8 Cain kills Abel; I Corinthians 5:7 Passover signifies Christ. Matthew 16:13-18 Jesus foretells of the church; Acts 2:1ff  Pentecost, the Holy Spirit poured out, church begins, first fruits; Why do we worship on Sunday?
