A BOOK REVIEW OF THE NEW TESTAMENT

Perhaps an important way to get the big picture of the Christian message is to treat the New Testament as a book, and review it in a manner that the typical book review does. The following post conveys the usual overview of the salient points in a book review and how it “all hangs together.”  This article is actually taken from A BIOGRAPHY OF THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE. This is my most recent book and focuses on its composition and transmission.  If you don’t believe the Bible to be trustworthy, you would do well to read the book.  You might come Read More

THE RECEIVED TEXT VS. THE CRITICAL TEXT: WHICH ONE IS RIGHT?

DOES A ‘RECEIVED TEXT’ IMPLY INERRANCY?

While champions of the superiority of the King James Bible argue that it is based on the “received text” and is categorically different from the “critical text,” this claim turns out to be ERRONEOUS. We only have to consider the history of how we got our Christian Bible to realize that the label “the received text” falsely assumes its composition was inspired and NOT the result of critical examination.  This position contends that God inspired the one, perfectly, while the other was the result of “man manipulating God’s word.”  This position believes today’s “critical Read More

THE NEPHILIM: IS JUDE’S QUOTATION OF 1 ENOCH PIVOTAL TO THE CHRISTIAN VIEW OF GIANTS IN GENESIS 6:4?

Prophecy students have obviously gone bonkers over the giants of Genesis 6:4. So many books have been written on the subject. Some prophecy teachers focus on this topic, almost to the exclusive of other issues. But were these enigmatic figures really giants?  Or were they something else? Were they hybrids of angels and humans? Or should we understand them to be humans of “stature,” but not so much in height as in their elite status?

Today, the noun nephilim has become a prominent part of the prophetic vocabulary. While the notion has, in my view, received more than an appropriate … Read More

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
