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

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 […]

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

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 […]

HAS THE THIRD JEWISH TEMPLE BEEN BUILT ALREADY? DID SIMON BAR KOKHBA ACCOMPLISH THIS IN 132 A.D.?

HAS THE THIRD JEWISH TEMPLE BEEN BUILT ALREADY? DID SIMON BAR KOKHBA ACCOMPLISH THIS IN 132 A.D.?

Summary: There were three Roman-Jewish Wars between 66 A.D. and 135 A.D. The second Temple, Herod’s Temple, was destroyed by Titus in 70 A.D. But two other wars would follow even more devastating than the first. The Jews had proven to be Rome’s worst citizens driven by an apocalyptic vision that they lived in the […]

WHAT IS THE RIGHT WAY TO DEFEND THE KING JAMES BIBLE AS THE PREFERRED, INSPIRED BIBLE?

KJV ONLY Confessional Bibliology, Not KJV ONLY Fundamentalism, Is Worthy of Repute Summary: There is a right way to argue that the King James Bible is the Bible that Protestants should use.  Not everyone will agree with it.  I am not perfectly comfortable either.  However, the viewpoint offered by those who call themselves “confessional bibliologists” […]

IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE AN INSPIRED TRANSLATION, MORE ACCURATE THAN THE ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPHS IN HEBREW AND GREEK?

IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE AN INSPIRED TRANSLATION, MORE ACCURATE THAN THE ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPHS IN HEBREW AND GREEK?

Within evangelicalism is a sizeable group of believers who assert that the King James Version (KJV) is the only version of the Bible that should be used by Bible-believing Christians.  They argue this point for a number of reasons which we will explore in a series of posts over the next week or two.  The […]

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

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 […]

COMMENDATION FROM DR. WILLIAM DOUBEK, THEOLOGIAN, FOR MY NEWEST BOOK, REBOOTING THE BIBLE

COMMENDATION FROM DR. WILLIAM DOUBEK, THEOLOGIAN, FOR MY NEWEST BOOK, REBOOTING THE BIBLE

              I believe the Bible to be the inspired, inherent Word of God. Since my earliest days at the Seminary, I was taught to believe this. What a lot of laity do not truly understand is that that is true for the original autographs. Current translations often contain errors due to the biases of […]
