A Hobbit Devotional

A Hobbit Devotional: Bilbo Baggins and the Bible
Where is Christ in The Hobbit?

The Hobbit is a tale of humble Shirefolk who overcome a seemingly impossible task through dedication, courage, and hope.

In Tolkien's Middle-earth, there is right and wrong, goodness and evil. This story is about how a Baggins had an adventure and ends with a Baggins stopping the end of Middle Earth as they knew it.
But is it Christian? Peek into the background of the creator of hobbits, J.R.R. Tolkien and you may realize "there's more to this Hobbit than meets the eye".
So the question of whether Tolkien’s writings should be considered “Christian works” is complex.

Join me as we seek Christ in this incredible story, and share with me how Tolkien’s enduring faith was expressed in his novels.

Lesser Known Matriarchs of the Bible

Hagar, Leah, Bilhah, Zilpah...


Do you know who these women are?

 

Sadly for them, most people know little to nothing about them.

But...
- one of these women is the mother of the entire Arabic nation!
- one of these women is the mother of the line of Jesus!
- one of these women is said to be buried in the Tomb of the Matriarchs in Tiberias!
- two of these women were thought to be half-sisters to Rachel and Leah!

Seems like they played some pretty major roles after all!

Join us as we shine the spotlight on these beautiful women that helped shape the course of Biblical history.
