One has an everlasting power that never dies and never turns off, but the other goes flat, people don’t know it’s a bible and can be hidden away as if it’s nothing. Support the use of actual bibles in church and in the world, something amazing happens when you take the real bible off your shelf and open it up! #realbiblebeliever #itsabiblenotacomputer #neverdies

I always take my bilingual English-Spanish Bible to church with me, but also my tablet where I can access the Greek NT and dozens of English and Spanish translations for comparison (not to mention Logos digital library)

Tablets are a tool to help facilitate study, but the bible is the word of God 🙂 let’s keep them as such.

what is an ACTUAL Bible Rick Wadholm Jr neither one on the picture was used by Pail or Jesus
David John Maxfield [09/28/2015 7:41 AM]
Scripture has a problem with your view on this as it says “Jesus opened the ‘book’ to Isaiah and read…..” it was most likely written in scroll form such as the dead sea scrolls, so I’m sorry but what you have said is incorrect, there may have been stone writings but most certainly the majority was on parchment
David John Maxfield [09/28/2015 7:47 AM]
Also the letters of Paul to all the churches and the prophesies of Jeremiah, revelations etc etc the list goes on, they are all written on parchment and by scribes. The temple never had the Torah in stone, it wouldn’t fit in it lol it was on parchment

What makes the Word of God the Word of God isn’t the medium on which it is presented (parchment scroll, papyrus codex, Gutenberg press-printed bound book, or computer/tablet screen, oral recitation from memory) but the source of the words that were “theopneustos” – God-breathed.

Moses himself used a tablet which God gave him Himself and wrote on them. Tablets are Biblical Rick Wadholm Jr
John Kissinger [09/28/2015 10:20 AM]
Rick Wadholm Jr uses a Biblical tablet in his lectures all the time
Eric Shonebarger [09/28/2015 2:31 PM]
I’m sure someone said the same thing when they stopped copying individual scrolls and packaged them into one bound book.
Rick Wadholm Jr [09/28/2015 2:34 PM]
It’s a book format which was a new invention for such texts post NT era (though small [note]books were known and used).
Rick Wadholm Jr [09/28/2015 2:36 PM]
In fact, the Church fairly early on showed its Gentile influences by turning to the new medium of the codex (book) instead of scrolls being maintained.
Rick Wadholm Jr [09/28/2015 2:37 PM]
Use whichever format you will actually use.

“the church turned into a new medium” should be only said within the proper _spiritual_ context 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBB820qCg60
