The Parable of the Sower: Mark 4:3-8

Scientific Method Written some time ago for a Seminary Newsletter Since the middle of January the resource I use for research, production and delivery of studies, sermons, and articles has been sitting somewhere on a technician’s bench in that mysterious land of computer repair.

Messiah In The Torah
