Biblical Sufficiency Applied  (Biblical Sufficiency Applied)
1.7 MB 28-Oct-2020
This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

Author(s): Cone, Christopher
Module version: 1.0
Description:

God-breathed. Profitable. These two words Paul conveys in 2 Timothy 3:16 to describe the word of God. That the Text is God-breathed attests to its authority, and that it is profitable attests to its sufficiency. The authority of Scripture has no limit for the believer – in its pages God demands complete submission of His children. Likewise the sufficiency of Scripture reaches to the farthest corners of the believer’s position and practice.

Paul describes the purpose of Scripture’s inspiration: “that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim 3:17). God’s word is sufficient for the equipping of His people for the works He has planned for them (Eph 2:10). The divine prescriptions explain the believer’s course of action, oftentimes revealing the rationale for the action, and always pointing to the enablement needed and provided. In short, the true knowledge of Him provides everything pertaining to life and godliness (2 Pet 1:3).

As such, we can rely on Scripture in every area of life. We will find no topic out of bounds, and no subject so controversial as to be avoided or lacking illumination in the pages of the Bible. Biblical Sufficiency Applied is an effort on the part of its several contributors to consider certain areas of contemporary controversy in the light of Scripture. We hope and pray that God uses this work both to challenge and encourage the reader to seek the answers in Scripture, and to be confident in the Biblical record as sufficient for every aspect of the believer’s life.

Corrupting the Image  (Corrupting the Image)
3.2 MB 03-Apr-2020
This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

Author(s): Hamp, Douglas
Module version: 1.0
Description:

Preface
Genesis 3:15 tells us of two seeds that will come upon the world – one will be the seed of the woman, which is Jesus. However, the other seed spoken of is Satan’s and that is where my research took off. I wanted to discover if the seed of Satan (Antichrist) would be an imitation of the virgin birth and if so, how that was possible genetically. What I uncovered was a war to destroy the image of God led by Satan since the earliest of times.

My method: Due to my language studies in Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, I have been able to do my own linguistic research throughout this book. I primarily conducted my own investigation of words and phrases using theWord Bible Software and therefore, I may not always cite a lexicon for authority. TheWord allowed me to search words in Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic and trace their usage throughout the entire Bible. I used primary sources wherever possible and drew my own conclusions from those. However, I did frequently turn to secondary literature to demonstrate that there are others that have come to similar conclusions – therefore when I state that a Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic words means such and such, the conclusion is based on my investigation. If I cite another, then I state the source. I use extra-biblical material (e.g. the book of Enoch and the Targumim) as I would a modern commentary – it is not sacred canon. However, unlike a modern commentary, those ancient works were often written by Jews who very likely had some insight that we do not. The method of discovery throughout this book will be to take the words as literally as possible and use the grammatical-historical approach of interpretation and we will find that doing so will make all of the pieces fit precisely.

One Piece of the End Times Puzzle: The topic of the image and how it is corrupted is central to the end times but is only one piece of the end-times puzzle. The study of the end times is complex as there are numerous pieces of the puzzle that need to be accounted for. Consequently, I am not specifically looking at the prophecies concerning the nation of Israel nor the wars and rumors of wars, nor the environment, etc. in this book. Those issues are clearly part of the puzzle but will not be covered here. Rather, I believe that this topic of the image serves as a larger backdrop to those issues. I believe that I have properly identified the root cause of many of the events that are coming upon the world through the study of the image. Because the image is under attack and Satan wants to destroy humanity (those who hold God’s image), certain things have happened in history and more is on the way.

Premillennial: I hold to the premillennial position (the Lord will return bodily to set up His thousand year reign on earth) and I believe it has ample proof and thus I will not attempt to prove it here, but will simply use it as my starting point. Given the many texts that I use to support my thesis, I believe the reader will see that a literal reading of the Bible warrants the premillennial approach.

Reading Plan: There are parts of this book that go into a lot of detail at times to prove beyond a doubt what has happened and what is coming. I have labored to write the book in a non-technical way and have put the non-essentials in the notes at the end of the book. Each chapter is the foundation of the next. Part one of the book discusses the Genesis 3:15 prophecy as it pertains to the Messiah and our future restoration. Parts two and three show the evidence of Satan’s plan to raise up his own seed. For those only interested in the end times (without the explanation of why things are the way they are) read the narrative and then proceed to part two. However, to get the full picture of the makeup of the Antichrist please begin in part one. The image of God serves as a foundation for the rest of the book and in fact I believe a proper understanding of the image of God serves us well as we study the Bible in general. I hope that by understanding who God is and what He is like, you will have a greater appreciation of just how much God loves us and what exciting things He has in store for us! Please skip over the Hebrew and Greek language insertions if those are a distraction to you. They are included because I felt that it was important to thoroughly prove the points that I am making.

Future Book: My intention is to write another book as a follow up to this book describing in detail the events of the Messianic age (Millennium). We will examine biblically the conditions on the earth and the New Jerusalem and also how those that survive the tribulation will receive their new bodies.

Discovering the Language of Jesus: Hebrew or Aramaic?  (Discovering the Lang)
0.7 MB 13-Oct-2009
This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

Author(s): Hamp, Douglas M
Module version: 1.0
Description: Discovering the Language of Jesus: Hebrew or Aramaic? For the last 150 years, both popular and academic views have asserted that Jesus spoke Aramaic as his primary language of communication since supposedly Hebrew died out after the children of Israel were taken into Babylonian captivity. This view, however, is not based on the testimony of the Old Testament, the New Testament, historical sources, or Jesus’ actual words. Just which language did Jesus and his disciples speak?
     
Dispensationalism Tomorrow and Beyond, A Theological Collection in Honor of Charles C. Ryrie  (Dispensationalism-Cone)
3.5 MB 13-Nov-2020
This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

Author(s): Cone, Christopher
Module version: 1.0
Description:
"This book in honor of Dr. Charles Ryrie was written by scholars who hold to the same basic view of Dispensationalism for which he is noted. In their chapters they address subjects related directly or indirectly to that system of theology. They exhibit a confirmed commitment to the authority, power, sufficiency, original languages, and correct interpretation of the Scriptures. Their work reflects careful exegesis of pertinent Biblical passages and significant interaction with writings of scholars who disagree with the Dispensational view of the Bible. Readers will be introduced to subjects not normally addressed by Dispensational authors...."

    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    Russell (“Rusty") L. Penney B.A., M.A„ Th.D. serves as Senior Pastor at Prairie Valley Baptist Church in Whitney, Texas, He is husband of Joann Squires Penney and father of Joseph, Hannah and Micah.

Rusty is the general editor of Overcoming the World Missions Crisis (Kregel, 2001), and contributor to six other books including the silver medallion award winner Dictionary of Premillennial Theology (Kregel, 1996).

    "There is no greater need in the church in the United States today than the maturing of believers or, what the Bible calls, 'making disciples' (Matt.

    28:18-20). Like a newborn babe, true spiritual growth is accompanied by a longing for spiritual food. This volume was written with that great need in mind. Equipping the Saints is 'food for the soul'. If we lead someone to Christ, it is imperative to help them grow. The Christian life is properly seen as the process of God conforming us to the moral image of Christ (Rom. 8:28-30), and bringing us to 'share in His holiness' (Heb. 12:10). This volume gives the believer a foundational understanding of the Christian life. It is time for the church to abandon its unbiblical and debilitating church growth, strategies and return to what God called the church to do; making disciples by equipping the saints (Eph. 4:11-12)."

    Author(s): Maclean, Malcolm
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    Abraham was called from a pagan background to become a spiritual catalyst in God’s plan for the salvation of the world. But what kind of man was he? The Bible describes several important experiences that he went through and how in most of them he revealed that he was the friend of God. Some of those experiences were pleasant for him, whereas others were very difficult. Yet in all of them he has left an example for those who, like him, are travelling to the city that God has prepared for those who love him.
    In this book, Malcolm Maclean considers those events in the life of Abraham and explains their relevance for believers in Jesus today.

    About the Author:

    This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

    Author(s): Dale, Robert
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    Caleb is one of the forgotten heroes of the Bible. One of the twelve spies sent out by Moses into Canaan, he was commended by God for his faithfulness. While others were fearful, he believed they could conquer the land. He remained faithful throughout forty years in the wilderness, until he and Joshua alone entered the land, as God had promised, with the younger generation. His story thus takes us all the way from Egypt to Canaan. Even in old age, he proved himself a courageous warrior, famously demanding, ‘Give me this mountain’, and a generous father, giving freely to his daughter. He is an inspiration to us all.

    About the Author:
    Robert Dale is a member of Lincoln Evangelical Church. After seventeen years in the City of London, he served as a pastor for twenty-eight years, first in Surrey, then in Lincoln, remaining there after his retirement in 2016. He is married to Jane and has two children, Jonathan and Hannah, both in Christian ministry.

    People in the Bible Elijah  (People Elijah)
    1.2 MB 05-Oct-2020
    This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

    Author(s): Cheeseman, John
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    When Elijah lived in Israel in 900 BC, truth was being compromised and the people had departed from the worship of the one true God. It was a multi-faith society. There was immorality at the highest level. Toleration trumped truth. True prophets were being persecuted. It was much like Western society today. What can Christians do in such a spiritual and moral climate? Elijah is our great example and inspiration as we dare to contend for the truth, even taking on the religious establishment if necessary. What could be more timely or relevant for the Christian church at the present time?

    About the Author
    John Cheeseman went to school at Epsom College in Surrey and was converted to the Christian faith at the age of 17, during a Scripture Union houseparty. He studied Classics at Oxford University, before training for pastoral ministry at Trinity College, Bristol. He has served in churches all over the South East of England, most recently at Holy Trinity, Eastbourne, where he was the Vicar of a large town centre church, with a strategic ministry for visitors and holiday makers.
    He has now left the pastoring of a single church, in order to concentrate on an itinerant ministry of Bible teaching, which is where his heart really lies. John is the author of 2 publications— Saving Grace (1997) and The Priority of Preaching (2006), (Banner of Truth Trust). He is married to Joy and they have three grown-up children: Peter, David and Cherry.

    Description:
    While the life of Elijah is familiar to most Christians, the mission and ministry of his successor, Elisha, is not so well known—probably because of the great drama that surrounded Elijah’s service for the Lord. The majority of Elijah’s miracles were performed in the context of death and destruction, whereas the miracles of Elisha were mainly to do with healing and restoration.

    It could therefore be argued that Elijah was primarily a prophet of judgement, whereas his successor was more a prophet of grace. If this is so, the story of Elisha’s life is very relevant to the times in which we live. Elisha prophesied in Israel during the ninth century BC as a shining light amid the darkness of idolatry and unbelief which prevailed at the time. We would therefore do well to follow his noble example as we seek to be witnesses for the Lord in our generation.

    Author(s): Wade, William
    Module version: 1.0
    Description: stripped-html
    We are often told that good things come in small packages, and this is the case when it comes to the book of Jonah. Through just four chapters we discover many layers to the life of this prophet and to the character of the God who does not give up—whether on this prophet, or on the barbaric city he called this prophet to reach.
    We follow Jonah on the run, on the beach, in the city and eventually in the great dock of God. As we uncover this dramatic story, we see that God has not only the will to reach a violent city, but also the grace to reach the heart of a stubborn prophet

    Author(s): Brown, Paul. E
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    A book about Judah? Maybe you don’t even remember the man himself. Or, if you do, you may feel that his story is a very unpleasant one, one you’d rather not dwell on. But perhaps you also remember him pleading for the life of his half-brother Benjamin. Can you read that part of his story without being deeply moved—perhaps even to tears? And the tribe of Judah: why did that become so important in the Bible? And who is it who is ‘the Lion of the tribe of Judah’? In this book, Paul E. Brown discovers many surprising and helpful truths as he reviews the frequently ignored life and legacy of Judah.
    About the Author:
    Paul E. Brown spent forty-two years in pastoral ministry before his retirement. He no longer preaches, nor drives very far, but he still writes and is the author of several books published by Day One. He and his wife, Mary, live in a village not far from Lancaster.

    Description:
    Evangelism.

    What immediately springs to mind when you read that word? Whatever reaction you may have, evangelism is becoming increasingly dangerous in an apparently post-secular Western world, yet the church has a continuing mandate to be a witness and to share the great message of the gospel.

    This book looks at the gospel adventures of Philip the Evangelist and draws lessons that will encourage, enliven and challenge you. It will ultimately also inspire you to lift up the sword of the Spirit boldly and, for the sake of lost souls, enter into the evangelistic fray.

    People in the Bible Samson  (People Samson)
    1.4 MB 12-Oct-2020
    This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

    Author(s): Jones, Colin. D
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    The story of Samson is one of the most exciting and intriguing in the whole of Scripture. As the sub-title suggests, it is a simultaneous insight into his incredible strength and persistent weakness. We marvel at the thrilling accounts of unorthodox battles and awe inspiring demonstrations of physical power. Sadly, we also wonder at his apparent inability to learn from his own mistakes as he follows his passions to their inevitable end.

    This rollercoaster of a story sweeps us from the rich promises accompanying his birth, though the tragedies and triumphs of his life. The story almost ends with the pitiable sight of him as the blind captive of his life-long enemies the Philistines. Yet, there is still one surprising twist to this epic tale 'victory through death. Throughout we trace the contrasts with the great Judge of Israel' Christ.

    About the Author

    People in the Bible Saul  (People Saul)
    1.5 MB 13-Oct-2020
    This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

    Author(s): Edwards, Brian. H
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    Israel's first king began with great promise and ended in tragedy. The author traces Saul's head start into the monarchy and the accelerating spiral into possibly the most lamentable biography in the Bible. Along the way there is much to learn from a king whose story is told in Scripture so that we might learn the ways of a man who fell out with God and fell in with the powers of darkness. And there are surprises along the way, not least in the story of his son who, but for the purposes of God, would surely have made an excellent king.

    However, on the blood-spattered walls of Beth Shan, the story does not quite end. There is another member of Saul's line who shines with bright hope and reflects the character of his godly father in contrast to that of his tragic grandfather. An accessible book for every reader which, as well as bringing the three characters of Saul, Jonathan and Mephibosheth to life and clarifying difficulties in the text, concludes every chapter with questions for thoughtful discussion suitable for group or personal study.

    About the Author

    People in the Passion of Jesus  (People Jesus)

    This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

    Author(s): Ellsworth, Roger
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:
    We can be glad for Mel Gibson's film, The Passion of the Christ, in at least one respect: it has familiarized many with the term 'Passion'. People now know it refers to the suffering of Jesus Christ. How did his suffering come to be called the 'passion'? The answer is our word 'passion' comes from the Latin word 'passio', which means 'suffering'.

    The Passion of Christ is an inexhaustible subject. In these warm and challenging devotional studies, Roger Ellsworth takes a look at the Passion through the eyes of the people most closely associated with it. By reminding us again of the wonder of what Christ did on the cross for ordinary people, he encourages us to become more passionate about the Passion and how we serve our Saviour.

    About the Author

    Having served for almost fifty years as a pastor, Roger Ellsworth is now engaged in an itinerant ministry. He has also authored over fifty books. He and his wife, Sylvia, have two sons, Tim and Marty, and five grandchildren.

    Reclaiming the Rapture  (Reclaiming the Rapture)
    1.5 MB 03-May-2020
    This is a paid module and requires an unlock key to be used.

    Author(s): Hamp, Douglas; Steinle, Chris
    Module version: 1.0
    Description:

    End-times Bible prophecy is like a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle partially done. Many godly people have come before us establishing the borders of the puzzle. Parts of the faces and landscape are taking form, yet without the box cover showing the finished product, no one really knows how it ought to look when it is entirely assembled. The timing of the rapture is a puzzle-piece incorrectly placed by many mainstream theologians.

    Authors Dr. Douglas Hamp and Chris Steinle take a fresh look at the rapture based on extensive Bible prophecy and a literal interpretation of the Scriptures. It's time to rethink God's purpose for the rapture: Is it an escape or a preparation for something greater? The rapture was prophesied from Genesis to Revelation. Why have dozens of rapture prophecies been overlooked by mainstream theology? Explore the ancient texts and discover God's clear and consistent revelation of end time events.

    * Explore dozens of rapture verses.
    * Understand the logic behind Paul's eschatology.
    * Learn why the Day of Lord includes God's indignation, the rapture, and Second Coming.
    * Enjoy dramatic vignettes from the Millennium Chronicles that bring Bible prophecies to life.
    * Consider the connection between the rapture and the redemption of the body.
    * Rethink the Gathering of Israel and how it applies to the Church.
    * See why Paul insisted the dead must rise first.
    * Know the signs preceding Christ's return.
    * Includes four charts and three vignettes to showcase the authors' conclusions.

    Author(s): Hamp, Douglas M
    Module version: 1.0
    Description: Douglas Hamp’s work The First Six Days is a much needed contribution to settle the question of days or ages. As a Hebrew language specialist trained at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he demonstrates convincingly from the pages of Scripture that the days of the Genesis creation account are literal days. He also carefully clarifies some misrepresentations of what day means in Hebrew. This is followed up by a stimulating review of the literal, six-day position held by ancient Jewish and Christian interpreters as well as archaeological corroboration of the biblical record.

    Author(s): Würthwein, Ernst
    Module version: 1.0
    Description: stripped-html
    Major revision of a landmark work in Old Testament scholarship
    Ernst Würthwein’s introduction to the Biblia Hebraica has long served as a textbook for generations of students interested in the history of the Old Testament text and the problems of textual criticism. From its first appearance in 1952 to the fifth German edition in 1988, the book was faithfully updated by Würthwein himself in light of new research. But now a new edition of “Würthwein” is due.
    While staying true to the original structure and character of Würthwein’s classic work, Alexander Fischer has rewritten the text completely to bring it up to date with the new Quinta edition of Biblia Hebraica. Besides updating information throughout, this edition includes a new chapter on the texts from the Qumran. This third edition of The Text of the Old Testament will be an indispensable resource for serious students of the Biblia Hebraica and Old Testament exegesis.
    REVIEWS
    Kristin De Troyer
    — University of St. Andrews
    “This finely revised and nicely updated version of one of the classics in our field can truly be called a grand introduction to the history of the biblical text.”
    Leonard Greenspoon
    — Creighton University
    “Readers familiar with Würthwein‘s earlier work will discover all of the strengths of his approach to Biblical Hebrew. Old and new readers will enjoy the thoroughly up-to-date discussion of the aims and methods of textual criticism as well as the unbiased analysis of ancient versions and their modern scholarly editions. Beautifully reproduced plates are easy to read, and the updated bibliography is satisfyingly full. . . . This successful project can be easily digested by newcomers and savored by specialists. “
    Robert L. Hubbard
    — North Park Theological Seminary
    “A very welcome, thorough revision of the long-honored standard introduction to the Masoretic text. Its integration of recent scholarship is first-rate, and the rewritten text retains the clear, accessible style that won its predecessors decades of popularity as a textbook. Yet another generation of students will find in this book a friendly, reliable guide through the complex terrain of ancient Hebrew texts and their relationships. Highly commended.”
    The Bible Today
    “Every scholar and serious Bible student should have a passing knowledge of the work of the text critic. This book will provide such knowledge.”
    Books at a Glance
    “An important, up-to-date resource that will benefit everyone interested in Old Testament Textual criticism. The excellent bibliography, diagrams, and plates are unique contributions among introductory works in the field. Highly recommended.”

    Author(s): Cambron, Mark G.
    Module version: 1.0
    Description: Beliefs that Matter
    Paul distinguished between the simplicities of the Word and its more profound truths. When writing to the Corinthians he said, “I have fed you with milk, and not with meat” (I Cor. 3:2). Certainly, newborn babes in Christ thrive on the sincere milk of the Word. With spiritual development, however, the meat of Scripture is masticated. One wonders whether the prevalent carnality among religious people would have been prevented if only they had consistently listened to doctrinal preaching in their churches. We fear that much of the present-day preaching is not only simple but superficial. The surface of the Bible is skimmed, but its depths are ignored. How grateful to the Lord we are for fundamental seminaries and Bible institutes all over the land, in which young people are taught to handle the great doctrines of the Word! The Tennessee Temple Bible School is one of the outstanding training schools of this kind in the land, and is fortunate in having a gifted teacher like Dr. Mark G. Cambron as its Dean. Dr. Cambron’s monumental work, Bible Doctrines, reveals how he has launched out into the deep of God’s Word, and is able to present, in a clear and concise manner, those glorious doctrines of which God in Christ is Author, Matter and End. We bespeak for Bible Doctrines a wide circulation among pastors, students and Christian workers in this and other lands!

Practically all of the prophecy teachers today got their basic prophecy knowledge directly or indirectly from Larkin and C. I. Scolfield. Larkin's works, as well as Scolfield's, are definitive, works that will endure until Christ's return. No other book since their publishing over 75 years ago has much improved on them.

    In Defense of the Objective Authority of the Sacred Text  (In.Defense)
    0.2 MB 02-May-2012
    Author(s): Pickering, Wilbur N.
    Module version: 1.1
    Description:

    Wilbur N. Pickering is a Christian missionary in Valparaiso, Brazil. He has a ThM and a PhD in Linguistics. Of those actively involved in textual criticism, no one holds a more radical view in defense of the inerrancy and objective authority of the Sacred Text. This includes the position that the precise original wording has been preserved to our day and that we can know what it is.

    In Defense of the Objective Authority of the Sacred Text aims to show that we can know exactly the precise wording of the original text; that the precise wording of the Sacred Text has been preserved; that if it has been preserved, then it must be inspired; and if inspired, then it indeed has "Objective Authority" over those submitted to it by its Author.

    Manners and Customs of Bible Lands  (Wight-Manners)
    1 MB 19-Oct-2014
    Author(s): Wight, Fred H
    Module version: 1.4
    Description: Manners and Customs of Bible Lands
    THE BIBLE WRITTEN BY ORIENTALS. It is easy for Occidentals to overlook the fact that the Scriptures had their origin in the East, and that each one of the writers was actually an Oriental. Since this is so, in a very real sense the Bible may be said to be an Oriental Book. But many are quite apt to read into the Scriptures Western manners and customs, instead of interpreting them from the Eastern point of view.
        Knowing Oriental manners and customs necessary to understand the Bible. Many passages of Scripture that are hard for the Westerner to understand, are readily explained by a knowledge of the customs and manners of Bible lands. On the other hand, to ignore this subject is to deprive one's self of a thorough mastery of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments.
        A study of the manners and customs of Arabs of Bible lands invaluable. For many years the Arabs were the custodians of Palestine. In the seventh century, an army of Arabs broke away from Arabia and invaded the Near East. They brought with them the habits of life inherited from countless generations before them. Since they have lived in these lands ever since, they have largely become the conservators of the manners and customs of Bible times.
        During the centuries, Arab customs largely unchange. There are three classes of Arabs in these lands. First, there is the Nomad or Bedouin Arab, who is a shepherd and lives in tents. Second, there is the Peasant or Fellahin Arab, who is a farmer and usually lives in a village one-room house. Third, there is the City or Belladin Arab, who as a rule engages in business in the larger cities. The Belladin Arab has come in contact with western civilization more than the other classes, and therefore his manner of life has undergone a certain amount of change. On the other hand, the Peasant Arab has changed his customs very little, and the Nomad Arab practically none at all. Through the centuries the Arabs have for the most part considered it to be morally wrong to change their ancient customs. For this reason the manners and customs of Bible-land Arabs are very much the same as the Jews of Bible times. There are some exceptions to this rule, and most of those have to do with religious observances.
        Sources of material about manners and customs of Bible-land Arabs. For information about the life-habits of the Arabs of the Near East we are indebted to natives of Bible lands, long time residents, missionaries, scholars, and travelers.
        What about the customs of the Jews who have returned to the new nation of Israel? The customs of the Jews who are now returning from various parts of the world to the land of their fathers, will not be of great value for this study, because they are largely the customs of those lands from whence they have come, and in many cases that means Western customs. There may be a few of the returning Israelites and some of those who have lived long in the land, who have the old-time habits of life, especially religious observances, but those who do are very much in the minority.
        Other sources of information about manners and customs of Bible times. Historians who have written about the time of Christ or of the Apostles have often given information about the manner of living of those days, and of even earlier days. Also the findings of archaeologists have been a valuable source of knowledge on this subject. Things unearthed by the spade, such as pottery, various articles of household furniture, remains of old houses, inscriptions, and the like, often reveal secrets of how men in the long ago lived and acted. Ancient civilizations lost to the world for centuries have been revealed to men by the work of excavators in Bible lands.

    There has been no change in people's opinions of the Byzantine text. Critics may be kinder to Byzantine readings but for reasons not related to their Byzantine nature. It's not really much of a change.

    Author(s): Hinds, Arthur
    Module version: 1.0
    Description: Like the Jefferson Bible, this is an attempt to edit the four gospels into a consistent account, in this case focusing on the words of Jesus. There is plenty of connecting narrative around the instances where Jesus speaks, so this is better than simply presenting each quote out of context. The focus on what Jesus is attributed as saying makes it easier to browse the core texts of the New Testament.

    Description: Mr. Newberry’s lectures and writings upon the tabernacle and the temple have been of spiritual profit to thousands. He constructed a model of the temple of exquisite beauty, and quite unique in its design and workmanship, the result of great research in the original Scriptures, so that it might convey to modern people some idea of that gorgeous temple which Solomon built from the patterns given to his father David by the Spirit of God, as Moses also constructed the tabernacle from the pattern which God gave to him in the holy mount. This model, with various writings in connection with it and bearing upon other subjects, will be lasting memorials to the value of his Bible research.

    Unmasking Evolution  (UnEvol)

    Author(s): Smart, Laurence D
    Module version: 1.0
    Description: Unmasking Evolution, The Resource Book, by Laurence D Smart
    I have been teaching science for over 25 years, but I have had a number of problems with the theory of evolution.

    1. I knew that there were no absolute proofs for evolution.
    2. Almost all of my colleagues taught evolution as a fact.
    3. All the textbooks presented evolution and the geological ages as facts.
    4. The media presented evolution as a fact, announcing new 'proofs' with great fanfare, but not reciprocating when 'proofs' were falsified.
    5. I knew that many of the 'proofs' of evolution were no longer regarded as proof by the world's leading scientists.
    6. I knew that a lot of research was disproving evolution, but the results were either not reaching the teaching profession, or the teachers were biased and refused to present them to their students.

    With this background, I decided to write this book. It was written as a resource for science teachers and students, as a collation of information that contradicts what is being taught in schools.

    I have structured each section by addressing its basic premises and then replying from logic, research, and the world's leading scientists.

    Each section is introduced with the statement, "Evolution says". I did this because this is the way it is imposed on school children, i.e. as an irrefutable dictum. I reply with "The facts are", presenting factual material that should be included in lessons in schools.

    The material I present in this book represents the factual information that was available at the time of publishing. There will be a myriad of responses regarding their validity, age, etc., however, these will be personal opinions which do not restrict the contents from being considered by others.

Chr., und den anschließenden Aufstand unter Führung der Makkabäer. Nach etlichen kleineren Aufständen gegen die jeweilige Fremdherrschaft kam es in den Jahren 66–70 n. Chr zum großen Aufstand der Juden gegen Rom, der als Erster Jüdischer Krieg in die Geschichte einging und dem ein Großteil des Werkes gewidmet ist.
