The Christian Bible in Russia Is Very Different Than the English Christian Bible. Does It Matter?

THE TRUTH WILL STOP YOU IN YOUR TRACKS.
Protestant Christians in England and America must awaken to the truth about our Bible.  The following article summarizes many of the things I’ve said in my books. It is the most important thing you’ll read this weekend… maybe this whole year.


Russian Bibles Are Very Different from American Ones. Here’s Why

Many people are surprised to find out that there are significant differences between Bibles in Russia, and most Bibles in America. Most English Bibles contain 66 books, while Russian Bibles traditionally contain more than 70.

Thanks to ORIGENalO for his very thoughtful review.  I do answer two of the criticisms in ALL CAPS. If you have any question about whether you should bother reading A BIOGRAPHY OF THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE, this should answer your inquiry.

This review is long overdue, as I had already read the book about a month earlier now. This book can be perceived as a solid (albeit respectable) hit piece against the (dare I say) cultish-esque KJV-only camp. The irony of such a 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?

WHY IS THE GAP BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS DIFFERENT FOR CHRISTIANS THAN FOR JEWS?

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
