THE MOST UNDERRATED BIBLE FIGURE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FIGURE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT THAT PROTESTANTS GENERALLY DISREGARD?  YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED.  WE MIGHT THINK ONE OF THE KINGS LIKE JOSIAH OR HEZEKIAH WHO BROUGHT REVIVAL TO JUDAH. BUT ACTUALLY, IT WAS A PRIEST.

His name was written Esdras in Greek (and in the Septuagint). But we know him by his anglicized name, Ezra.

Ezra is an underappreciated Old Testament figure in Protestant circles. This opinion stands in enormous disparity with rabbinic Judaism (today’s Judaism), who sees him as a second Moses. While some scholars believe Ezra lived just 40 years, from 480 … Read More

THE DISCOVERY OF THE LOST HEBREW BIBLE AND THE HIDING OF THE LOST ARK OF THE COVENANT

What does the Bible say about how close we came to losing almost all of the Old Testament? It tells us, in essence, we were down to one copy hidden in the Temple 600 years before Christ. Who found it? And what happened? And what does it say about where the Ark of the Covenant was hidden? And who hid it?  These topics are covered in brief in the following extract from my latest book, A Biography of the Christian Bible.

 “I cannot truly thank you enough for this book, A Biography of the Christian Bible, In all truth

I BET YOU DON’T KNOW WHO WROTE JUDGES, KINGS, AND CHRONICLES.

I also bet you don’t have a good grasp of the 500-year period from the Conquest of Canaan to the coronation of King Saul, the first king of Israel.  There are many familiar names that figure into the story. But it might be the least understood period in the Bible.

DID MOSES WRITE THE PENTATEUCH?

Many subscribe to the view that Moses was the inspiration of the Pentateuch, but he wasn’t really the author. Indeed, Israel’s most ancient history and revelation was oral tradition passed down nearly 1,000 years before it was written down. I disagree… and take a more conventional view. But how did the primeval history of the Bible get written down? I answer that question in my new book.

This weekend the book is available from Amazon (print only) for $17.56 instead of $21.95 (a 20% discount). Prime members get free shipping when ordering from Amazon.  Words of support came from Pastor … Read More
