In its first glimpse of the heavens following the successful December 1999 servicing
mission, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a majestic view of a planetary nebula,
the glowing remains of a dying, Sun-like star. This stellar relic, first spied by William Herschel
in 1787, is nicknamed the "Eskimo" Nebula (NGC2392) because, when viewed through ground-based telescopes,
it resembles a face surrounded by a fur parka. In this Hubble telescope image, the "fur parka" is
really a disk of material embellished with a ring of comet-shaped objects, with their tails
streaming away from the central, dying star. The Eskimo's "face" also contains some fascinating details.
Although this bright central region resembles a ball of twine, it is, in reality, a bubble of material
being blown into space by the central star's intense "wind" of high-speed material.

The Fountain of Living Water
There are three that bear witness: the Spirit and the Water and
and these Three are One. Truly, truly, I say unto you:
Except a man be born of Water and the Spirit,
you cannot enter into the Kingdom
Act 2: 42-45The pattern of the
early church worship should be the pattern of today's church.
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles'
doctrine and fellowship, in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Institutes of the Christian Religion
By John Calvin
- Book 4 chapter
17 on the Eucharist.
Most evangelical protestant pastors and teachers have apparently not read Calvin's
Communion and leave the whole of the wonderful mystery as purely symbolic.
A person is
wrong to follow uninformed teachers, and our suggestion is that the
those things that Calvin may have correct and those that are in
error. Published in Latin in 1536.
of the Rock of Matthew 16:18
- Augustinian Excerpts Compiled by William
A study compendium of the writings of Aurelius Augustinus, know as Augustine,
Bishop of Hippo,
and his opinion
of Who the Rock of Matthew 16 verse 18 is referring to, which is none other than
the Christ and not Peter.
The Four Gospels chronologically orderedA supposed work by Richard
Worth of combining the Gospel
scriptures into chronological order, apparently
very similar to the harmony of the Diatessaron.
Diatessaron was an early compilation of the four Gospels in harmony of time,
written by Titianus a
round 170-175 AD. I
recommend reading the "Last Supper "to
have a better understanding of the
order of events at
the Lord's Passover table. The golden link is an excerpt taken from Mr.
chronological rendering of the Gospels.
