What the BIBLE Tells Us About Nimrod

What the BIBLE Tells Us About Nimrod

The following article is a sneak peek of the research being done for Rebooting the Bible, Part 2. (RTB, Part 2) Nimrod’s story as given to us from biblical revelation in Genesis 10 and 11, combined with archeology from ancient times in Mesopotamia, tells us what we can hold true about Nimrod – and dispels the […]

HUNTING THE “MIGHTY HUNTER” – NIMROD

HUNTING THE “MIGHTY HUNTER” – NIMROD

More Than the Antichrist Archetype? One of the most intriguing characters in the Old Testament is Nimrod, son of Cush, and grandson of Ham. His name often comes up as the archetype of the Antichrist. It turns out that when we dig into the story surrounding Nimrod, there is much more to be said about […]

THE KEY ARGUMENT AGAINST THE SEPTUAGINT – IT WAS WRITTEN AFTER THE NEW TESTAMENT!

THE KEY ARGUMENT AGAINST THE SEPTUAGINT – IT WAS WRITTEN AFTER THE NEW TESTAMENT!

Perhaps the most incredible argument against the historical validity of the Septuagint (as a third-to-second-century-B.C. creation) is this: It was fabricated, following rather than preceding the composition of the New Testament (NT). It’s a heated area of debate because the King-James-only argument stands or falls based on when the LXX translation was commenced and completed. […]

A BOOK REVIEW OF THE NEW TESTAMENT

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.” […]

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

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 […]

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

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

Most of my followers know that there is a period of over 400 years between the writings of the Old and New Testament.  In reality, it may span almost 500 years. The last Old Testament prophet was Malachi who wrote approximately circa 450-400 B.C. (and by the way, he may have been Ezra according to […]

THE MOST UNDERRATED BIBLE FIGURE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

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 […]

DID MOSES WRITE THE PENTATEUCH?

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 […]
