REBOOTING THE BIBLE, PART 2, FRONT COVER!!


I CONTINUE TO WORK DILIGENTLY. And I’m making steady progress toward completing the book.  My goal is to have it in the market and available for purchase May 1.  

I will continue to publish bits and pieces of what’s coming.  For now, here is the Front Cover.  Let me know what you think.  It’s meant to complement RTB Part 1 and visually demonstrate that the content has been published in two parts and is vitally related.

SHOOT THE MESSENGER! SO WHY DID I SAY THAT THE KING JAMES BIBLE (AND ALMOST ALL OLD TESTAMENTS) HAVE SOME SERIOUS FLAWS?

Summary: I’ve been called many names since I dare to assert that the King James Bible has flaws.  After all, isn’t it based on the “received text?” And doesn’t mean that it is inspired such that it is inerrant? I don’t think so. What the authors originally wrote were moved by God to compose what He wanted – inerrantly. But through the years changes were made, including the corruption of selected passages of the Old Testament by the rabbis of the second century A.D. Protestant Old Testaments, the Catholic Vulgate’s Old Testament, and the Hebrew Bible – the Biblia Hebraica, Read More

HOW THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS SPOIL THE RABBINIC STRATAGEM TO DESTROY THE SEPTUAGINT

Going for the Juggler: The Plan to Destroy the Old Greek Septuagint.

INTRODUCTION: At the end of the first century, with its temple in ruins, tens of thousands killed in the revolt that ended in the tragedy at Masada, and Rome still in control of their land, how could the new rabbinic form of Judaism rid itself of their rival pesky Jewish sect, the Christians?  Rabbi Akiba, its newly acknowledged leader, elected to attack Christianity’s principaltext; namely, the Septuagint translated from the old Hebrew in Alexandria 400 years earlier.How could he do this? And is it speculation to think Read More

A BRIEF BUT POWERFUL SUMMARY OF WHY THE BIBLE PROVIDES AN ACCURATE HISTORY

Does the Septuagint provide confirmation or contradiction to Hebrew Old Testament history?


In writing REBOOTING THE BIBLE, some might suppose I am arguing that the Bible makes historical errors and therefore needs to be scrubbed of inaccuracies. That is the opposite of my message. In fact, the Septuagint is a witness that can correct any minor mistakes that have been made in the Masoretic text.

While this article doesn’t make note that the Septuagint fragments and manuscripts found in the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) usually favor the Septuagint’s version, mos differences in the LXX and the MT aren’t material with … Read More

ARE YOU A FUNDAMENTALIST OR AN EVANGELICAL?

WHY ARE SOME CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS OPEN-MINDED WHILE OTHERS AREN’T?

How easily are you threatened by another person of faith in Christ who believes something different than you do?  For instance, “How old is the earth?”


 

The two terms, evangelical and fundamentalist, mean different things to different people.  There is considerable history going back 200-400 years in the reformation or Protestant movement. What I’ve learned in my experience is that I find it easy to get along more with evangelicals than with fundamentalists.  However, there remain many doctrines I still believe that place me in the fundamentalist camp.  But not … Read More
