[2] And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. [3] And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. [4] But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. )! It's what everyone has always wanted, but mankind has never been able to achieve it. Why?

  2. Restoring Moral Levees (l) - Without careful maintenance levees can fail. It's the same for character and self-restraint. The type of character that can withstand depravation and upheaval must be built and maintained one brick at a time over years of careful living.
  3. Natural Disasters: Will We Ask the Crucial Questions? (l) - A native of New Orleans assesses what happened there with Hurricane Katrina -- and why.
  4. Great Storms Foretold? (l) - Disasters and Jesus' words: "Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."
  5. The Day the World Ended: Lessons From Pompeii (l) - Pompeii's ruins tell a stark and heartrending story. One day Pompeii was a thriving, lively city; the next it was a steaming mound of smoldering volcanic ash. Does Pompeii's tragic tale hold lessons for us today?

New Testamen

New Testament
  1. Why Are There Differences in Ancient New Testament Manuscripts? (l) - In the ancient world, copies of the New Testament books were made in several major locations. The manuscripts originating in these locations are grouped in what are called families of texts.

  4. How the Word Church is Used in Scripture and Common Speech (l) - In contemporary English usage, 'church' as a word dominates the ecclesiological vocabulary. It comes through German and Latin from the Greek kyriakon, which means 'that which belongs to the Lord.' In NT Greek, ekklesia (almost always translated in English by 'church') is by no means so dominating or central a term.
  5. The Testimony of the New Testament (l) - Many are surprised to learn that the Bible reveals Christ as the Creator! More than once the apostle Paul explained to early Christians that God had created all things by Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:9; Colossians 1:16). Hebrews 1:2 tells us that God "has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, . . . through whom also He made the worlds."

Is it logical to disregard the history of God's revelation, His revealed way of life and the promises these Hebrew Scriptures contain?
  9. The New Testament Writers (l) - It is through the apostles, men chosen for a unique role that God brought about the creation of the 27 books comprising the New Testament. Their accounts were preserved as the New Testament. Fundamentally they were apostolic writings.
  10. The Transition from the Prophets to the Gospels (l) - The prophets and the New Testament join seamlessly to provide God's complete revelation to mankind. Even though the period between the testaments was more than 400 years, the prophets precede the apostolic writings in a manner that emphasizes their basic unity.
  11. The Need for a New Covenant (l) - The New Covenant is God's commitment to give His people His Spirit so they can obey Him.
  12. Reexamining the Roots of Christianity (l) - Was the early church far more Jewish than has been taught?
  13. When Was the New Testament Written? (l) - An interview with Professor Theide.
  14. The Unexplained Success of the Church (l) - No one willingly dies to perpetrate a hoax. One only dies for something he is convinced is the truth.
  15. The Rest of the Story? (l) - Do we have the complete story of Jesus Christ's life and death? For centuries alternative ideas have circulated as to whether Christ was who the Gospels say He was. Did the early Church suppress more than 80 alternative gospel accounts of Christ's life? Now a best-selling book popularizes one of these stories. What is the truth? Can we be sure we have the rest of the story?

  2. 'Church' and 'Congregation' in the Scriptures (l) - The Church of God, the term most generally applied to God's people in English translations of the New Testament, is the body of people who are special to God because they obey His Word and accept His Son, Jesus Christ, as the Messiah.
  3. Introduction: Sunset to Sunset, God's Sabbath Rest (l) - Was the Sabbath condemned and changed in the early New Testament Church, or confirmed? Did God sanctify the Sabbath at the time He created Adam and Eve, or did He first set it apart as holy time at the Exodus more than 2,000 years later? Was the Sabbath changed from the seventh day of the week to another day, and, if so, when?
  4. Was the Sabbath Changed in the New Testament? (l) - If the Sabbath, or any part of God's law, were abolished or changed in the early New Testament Church, there should be clear evidence of such an alteration in New Testament writings.
  5. Was Sunday the New Testament Day of Worship? (l) - The New Testament was written over a time of more than 60 years after Jesus' death and resurrection, and nowhere does it show the day of rest being moved to Sunday.
  6. The New Testament Church Begins (l) - A new phase in God's plan of salvation involves God working through a group of people -- the Church -- who are spiritually transformed by the Holy Spirit. God chooses them not only to receive salvation for themselves, but to carry out His work for the ultimate benefit of all humanity.

  2. Why Would the Apostle to the Gentiles Keep the "Jewish" Holy Days? (l) - The apostle Paul is considered by many as the originator of a theology that allegedly freed Christianity from the Sabbath, Holy Days and the law. Is this what the scriptural record indicates?
  3. God's Annual Festivals (l) - Many Christians assume that the festivals God gave to Israel are outdated. Yet the early Church continued to observe them. And the book of Revelation graphically portrays their fulfillments.
  4. Are God's Holy Days Relevant Today? (l) - When God begins something in this present age of mankind, He nearly always starts small. In Matthew 13:33 Jesus Christ compared God's Kingdom to both a mustard seed and leaven. Both analogies start with something small that expands into something much larger. Similarly, God called only a relatively few people in Old Testament times who were willing to follow His ways.
New Testament manuscripts

Many people have never heard of Tyndale; very few have (knowingly) read him. Yet no other Englishman -- not even Shakespeare -- has reached so many."
  2. Tyndale as Translator (l) - William Tyndale's competence in Greek may well be due to William Croke's lectures. Tyndale perhaps learned Hebrew in Worms, the main center of Jewish learning in Germany.

Newness of life
  1. What the Bible Says About Baptism (l) - Baptism is one of the most important beliefs of Christianity, but why? What is this ceremony all about?

When should one be baptized?
News
  1. Is All News Local? (l) - Go ahead and keep up with the scores. But keep your eyes on the international horizon. There is a lot going on there that you need to be aware of.
  2. Jesus' Warning to "Watch" - Just What Did He Mean? (l) - Jesus and the apostles exhort us to actively "watch"! We need to understand all that they meant and the wide-ranging implications. Our survival and salvation could depend on that understanding and action!
