Some Helpful Links

posted by Mark D. Roberts

Today I want to put up some helpful links.
First, let me draw your attention to some new material on TheHighCalling.org. There’s an interview with Judge Glenda Hatchett of the television program, Judge Hatchett. This is a substantial, moving conversation with a woman who is serving the Lord in a unique way.
Then there’s a fine piece by Matthew Alexander, “Secular Work vs. Sacred Work: The Greek Distortion of Work.” Alexander, a financial planner, lays out in practical terms some of the misunderstandings of work that are popular among Christians today.
Ramblin’ Dan’s blog links to a fantastic video called Lindsay. It focuses on a young woman who lives out her Christian faith as a teacher in New York City.

Lindsay was produced by Deidox.  I was not familiar with this organization, but I was most impressed by this video, so I checked out their website. The Deidox byline reads: “Short films telling true stories of an active God.” The “About” page explains the name: Dei (Latin for God) + dox (short for documentaries) = Deidox. The organization is led by Brent Gudgel and Dave Mahanes, who now reside in California. They hope that, in time, they’ll be able to support their work by selling the videos for church and other groups. If they keep up the quality and message of Lindsay, I expect they’ll have great success.
Speaking of wonderful videos, check out this Advent clip produced by Christine Sine, with music by my friend, Jeff Johnson.

    I hadn’t heard of Deidox before, but they sound like a group worth supporting and following. I think it’s exciting to see Christian filmmakers doing small, creative films with such great stories. Parables, actually. Thanks, Mark.

    DEIDOX and other wonderful Christian film makers were honored at the October 2009 “A Night of Film” at our church, Coast Hills Church in Aliso Viejo, CA.
    Here’s the URL to a blog post by another film maker that explains The Veracity Project, the Visual Story Network, and others who support the growth of Xian film makers:

    I attended “A Night of Film” in 2009, and it is a “must see” event for anyone in southern California in late October.
    One film that deeply moved the audience was “The Butterfly Circus” (URL):

    Let’s spread the word re: what God is doing through these film makers.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? Conclusions
In this series on the death of Jesus, I have presented four different perspectives on why Jesus had to die: Roman, Jewish, Jesus’, and Early Christian. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand the necessity of Jesus’ death without taking them all

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
