Hebrews Study: Our Anchor for the Soul, Part 2 :: By Sean Gooding

Continuing Study in Hebrews 6:13-20 “19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” Last week we explored the security […]

Two Theological Views Collide: Part 2 :: By Gene Lawley

Two Theological Views Collide: Part 2 :: By Gene Lawley

When proponents of Calvinism express their thoughts on Calvin’s five points of theology (TULIP), they seem to struggle with how man is able to get right with God since he is totally depraved. It seems to be a mystery how that gap is overcome. Let’s look into the beliefs of Reformers/Calvinists, as their major icon, […]

Signs of the Times: Part 2 – Signs of the Second Coming :: By Paul J. Scharf

It will be here before we know it! December 25th, that is…. But long before that big day, we’ll sense the sights, sounds, and smells. Christmas, in fact, permeates our culture so thoroughly that it almost mingles together with all things related to fall—the cooler weather, a warm sweater, the desire to stay inside, football […]

The Septuagint Vs. the Masoretic Text, Part IV :: By Randy Nettles

The Septuagint Vs. the Masoretic Text, Part IV :: By Randy Nettles

Most historians believe the Hebrew Pentateuch was translated into the Greek language in approximately 250 BC, and thus, the Septuagint or LXX was born. However, there is no solid proof of a pre-Christian LXX. What is usually referred to as the LXX today is nothing more than compilations of the oldest known manuscripts (in Greek) […]

The Septuagint vs. The Masoretic Text, Part III :: By Randy Nettles

The Septuagint vs. The Masoretic Text, Part III :: By Randy Nettles

THE CASE FOR THE MASORETIC TEXT The Masoretic text (MT) is the basis for most English translations of the Old Testament today and is regarded as the best-preserved text of the Hebrew Bible. Yet the oldest extant manuscript is dated to around AD 900, and we cannot simply assume that its genealogical figures are the […]

(Ephesians 3:13-20) https://youtu.be/XYEq4Ih3duo The night I realized the meaning of “a man of sorrows” (Isaiah 53:3) and “he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows” (Isaiah 53:4) is the night that has forever changed me.

Two Years Later: Where Are We Now? Part 5 :: By Paul J. Scharf

Cybersecurity is a subject about which I know almost nothing and would certainly never give advice. Yet this is an issue that affects all of us—in our communications, finances, and now, especially, ministries. So, along with many other people, I am dependent upon the expertise, advice, and assistance of those who really live within this […]

Bible Prophecy Update: Angels & Fallen Angels, Part 1 :: By Gary W. Ritter

Update 8-3-22 A little more than two years ago, my pastor allowed me to bring this teaching to a Wednesday night gathering in the church. Because of his background, the pastor didn’t agree with some of the points he knew I’d convey, but he trusted me that I spoke truth, and he had the courage […]
