Download and read online The Tale of Rebekah Rabbit in PDF and EPUB Where did the story of the Easter Bunny come from? What does Easter, the Day on which Jesus was raised from the dead that Christians celebrate every year with great joy, have to do with a rabbit that brings joy to children? Did it ever occur to you that there might have been a family of rabbits in the Garden outside Jerusalem where Jesus was laid in the tomb on that sad, amazing day we call Good Friday? Well, if there were rabbits in that garden, maybe one of them saw the Risen Lord even before the faithful women went to the tomb and encountered the Angel telling the news of His Resurrection. Maybe she was a little bunny named Rebekah, who was curious about the strange rumbling she felt early, early that Sunday morning, and the beautiful light that came with the dawn, so out she hopped into the garden, all alone, while her brothers and sisters slept. And there she met the most wonderful person in the world - and somehow she knew Him and He knew her!! And then maybe that little bunny was able to say something without words to those women - and they included her in their story to the others. But then, over the centuries, the part about the rabbit and the first Easter day got forgotten -mostly. Fantasy can be a wonderful way to connect with the truths taught by the Christian faith. Based on the Gospel of Matthew, "The Tale of Rebekah Rabbit" is for children and adults with a heart for what may have happened if, as old legends tell us, animals can talk among themselves and, like humans, can recognize the voice of their Maker! Jean Alden McCurdy Meade, an Episcopal priest since 2002, is the Rector of Mount Olivet Episcopal Church, New Orleans. She is the mother of four, step-mother of one, and grandmother of four - so far. A pianist, organist, singer, and lover of reading and good conversation, her special calling is teaching the Bible to young and old. For 19 years she served as the lay chaplain of St. Andrew's Episcopal School where she used impromptu drama and music to bring the Bible stories to life. She has broadcast a Bible study, "Light unto my Path," on New Orleans public access television for years and has been the speaker for many conferences and retreats, especially on "Women of the Bible" and "Male and Female in the Image of God." A graduate of Agnes Scott College and Duke University, she taught English in high schools and college before "retiring" for a while to bring up her children. In 1988 she was the first non-Roman Catholic graduate of Notre Dame Roman Catholic Seminary of New Orleans and then earned a PhD in Philosophy from Tulane University in 2000. She has taught Religious Studies and Philosophy at Loyola, Notre Dame Seminary, and Tulane in recent years. She is dedicated to fostering ecumenical work and understanding, serving as a Chaplain in the Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem and in the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple in Jerusalem, and she has been an oblate of St. Joseph Abbey, Order of Saint Benedict, in Covington, Louisiana, for many years. Ever since the 200th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase in 2003, Jean has led an ecumenical service of Vespers in French at Mount Olivet Church to celebrate the French heritage of Louisiana. A native of San Antonio, Texas, she has four sisters and one brother, many nieces and nephews, and is married to Louis R Koerner, Jr, a lawyer.

Download and read online The Mask of Deception in PDF and EPUB In the end times, before the return of the Messiah Jesus, the “Anointed One,” there exists biblical texts that prophecy a one-world organization that rises once more in dominion over all the world—text that defines the very future of our human recourse. GOD passed down these principles to the human race in order to guide them, lead them, and teach them how to live an abundant life in HIM. That book, known as the Holy Bible, contains approximately 2,000 predictions of which more than half have already been fulfilled. Hidden in these ancient biblical verses is an ancient biblical commandment that holds the key to freeing yourself, your family, and even entire nations. The Mask of Deception reveals the history of idol worshiping and how Voodoo now hides in a well-known religion by masking its true identity. This unique and compelling book is a result of Marisol Pareja’s escape from organized religion, and the 40-year journey she endured to share her experiences with you. Will it give you the courage and conviction to stand up and fight for your very soul?

Download and read online Shocked by the Bible in PDF and EPUB How well do you really know the Bible? For instance, guess how many doves were aboard Noah's Ark. The answer is not two. And guess on which day the Bible says Jesus died. Believe it or not, the Good Book doesn't mention Friday, and even more surprisingly, while the Bible says Jesus rose from the grave, it does not say it occurred Sunday morning. Remember, Jesus' followers found an empty tomb then. But don't feel bad if you've always assumed otherwise. Like countless millions of people, you've just been misinformed, misled or even (dare we say) lied to about what the Bible actually says. In a stunning investigation, news veteran Joe Kovacs goes on a mission to help both Christians and non-Christians alike find out what the Bible really contains, and what it doesn't. "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told" is an educational juggernaut that relies solely on the Holy Bible to reveal hundreds of Scriptural facts that many people of all persuasions simply don't know. The book instantly skyrocketed to the No. 1 position in three Bible-related categories on Amazon.com. "I'm among the biggest fans of the Bible of all time," says Kovacs. "My goal is to educate people about the solid truth of Scripture and to stop the spread of erroneous information. I want people to crack open their Bibles and see with their own eyes what's actually printed on the pages, and what's not. It's shocking!" According to Scripture, you won't find "Three Wise Men" mentioned anywhere in the story of Jesus' birth. For that matter, none are said to have shown up at the manger in Bethlehem. The truth straight from your own Bible is that an unspecified number of wise men first met Jesus as a "young child" in a "house," not a babe in a manger, and it might have been more than a year after He was born. Go ahead, look it up for yourself. Also according to Scripture, you won't find a single mention of Easter eggs, but you will find God warning His people not to have anything to do with a pagan fertility goddess, whose name is synonymous with "Easter." "Yes, I'm a Bible-believing Christian," says Kovacs. "But I'm not here to convert anyone. People are free to believe whatever they wish and can come to their own conclusions. I just want to show them the biblical record is often very different from what many assume. Not only will Christians love this book, but I think Jews, Muslims and even agnostics and atheists will get a kick out of it as well." When the veil of presumption is removed and people see the words that are actually on the Bible's pages, readers will discover: Jesus said no one has gone to heaven except Himself "Christmas" is not mentioned in the Bible The practice of decorating a tree with silver and gold is actually condemned by God "Easter" has vanished from the Bible Jesus made appearances on Earth on the Old Testament God sought to kill Moses The destiny of human beings is not what you think (it's not to float around on clouds in heaven) God ran lotteries Jesus did not come to make everyone understand His message Noah's Ark is not said to have rested on "Mount Ararat" Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not Jews Nagging wives are mentioned in Scripture Women's breasts are celebrated in the Bible There's a character in the Bible called a "dumb ass" Underwear didn't disintegrate despite 40 years of heavy use The worst case of hemorrhoids in history is recorded Endorsement: "If you think you really know the Bible, better think again. Joe Kovacs takes a close look at the greatest story ever told and separates myth from reality. My favorite parts of the book deal with Christmas and Easter. Check out 'Shocked by the Bible.' You may well be shocked." – Bill O'Reilly, anchor, Fox News Channel
