How do the Koran and the Book of Mormon compare to the Christian Bible? They are much more recent than Hindu or Buddhist scriptures, so aren’t they more trustworthy? According to the writings of each religion, not only are they more trustworthy, but both religions claim that they are the most correct scriptures. By the law of noncontradiction, they can't both be true. So, how do we evaluate them to determine whether the trustworthiness of each? That's what we will talk about in detail in our podcast today.

Aren’t all religions the same? Don’t they lead to the same place and aren’t all their holy books similar? If you’ve asked questions like these, I’ve some fascinating history that helps answer these questions. In the last two podcasts we've talked about what is truth and then how historians determine what is true. Please listen to them as background for this and the next podcast. In this podcast we'll apply what we talked about as we evaluate the historical truth of the Hindu and Buddhist scriptures and compare that with the Christian Bible. I'll be giving you the background and overview of each religion, some samples of their scriptures, and then a historical analysis of them.

How do historians know what is true? Do they write up whatever sounds good to them? Or do they listen to legends or whatever do they do? In a previous lesson, we talked about the importance of truth and how truth is that which corresponds to reality. We then talked about how history is a useful way to determine what corresponds to reality and how this is foundational to determining if a religion is true. But how do historians go about figuring out what corresponds to reality? Obviously, we don’t have time machines. We can’t go back to the events themselves. They do it through evidence and in this podcast we'll talk about the evidence of geography, archeology, artifacts, and documents.

Fake news, conflicting viewpoints, frightening world events, how do we know what to believe? On one level if the confusion over truth were just confined to the political realm or whatever tragedy consumes the news, one option would be to block the media noise and hope things will get better. But we can’t do that in all of life. In spiritual realities, truth matters! This podcast goes on to talk about what Truth is not, what it is, and how history can help us determine what is true.  For notes on this podcast and links to much more, go to: www.bible805.com To download free Chronological Bible reading schedules and blank Bible-reading journal pages, go to https://www.Bible805.com To go to Yvon Prehn’s Instagram on the Bible for weekly encouragement, go to https://www.instagram.com/yvonprehn For blogs, commentary, and links to all resources related to Bible study, go to https://www.Bible805.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support

 If the Bible is supposed to be historically accurate, what about the books some Bibles have in between the Old Testament and New Testament? Are they historically reliable? Why aren’t they in all Bibles? Today we’ll answer those questions in this podcast. In our last lesson we looked at how the Old Testament is tied to real history and real geography. This week we’ll look at the Apocrypha to see if it meets the same tests. We’ll look at what it is and how it came about. As you’ll see it’s part of a bigger story that includes a history of the Septuagint—more than a scholarly term, this was the Bible of Jesus and Paul—a Greek translation of the Old Testament that was translated about the same time as the Apocrypha. But we can’t confuse the two because the Septuagint is a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew to Greek and the books of the Apocrypha are not considered divinely inspired because the reasons we cover in the podcast.

What’s the most important thing we need to think about as we wrap up our year-long journey through the Bible? We started with Paradise lost in Genesis and we will end with Paradise restored in Revelation, so should we focus on end-time prophecy? Figuring out when Jesus will return? There are many things we could focus on as we wrap up this year, but) what I decided to talk about as we look back on what we’ve read and look forward to God’s plans for us is to answer the question taken from a passage in 2nd Peter where in light of Jesus coming, he doesn’t focus on the newspaper sensational details of it, but asks: What manner of people ought we to be?

How do we act when bad things happen to us? u We always have a choice u We can retaliate u We can throw a pity party u We can blame others u Or we can trust God no matter what and try to respond in a way He wants us to No one or no circumstance ever forces us to act in a way God doesn’t want us to In our podcast today we’ll look at how the Apostle Paul responded in a very difficult situation.

If you invited someone to your home for dinner and they stopped halfway there, what would you think? That they didn’t care? Didn’t really want to be with you? In our podcast today we’ll see how that is a little like what it is like if we accept Jesus to be our Savior, but then we quit God’s plans for us only halfway to where He wants us to be.

Christians often refer to themselves as "saved", but what does it mean to be "saved"? Saved from what? In today’s podcast we’ll talk about the meaning of salvation and how to get from wherever we are to this spiritual destination. Our roadmap for this journey is found in the book of Romans.

As we read Acts and the early letters of Paul, we see the people of the early church selling everything, constantly in worship, doing miracles. Does that mean we should do these things also? The history of the early church is no doubt exciting, as they worked miracles, held everything in common and lived a life of continual worship.  However, a key question for us living today is which of their actions should we follow as a normative command for the church today—meaning we should keep doing it because they did it and what should we understand simply as a history of the birth of the church, something to learn from in principle, but not necessarily a practice to precisely follow? Those are the questions we will answer in our podcast today. For notes from the podcast and more, go to https://www.bible805.com. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support
What does it take to change a habit? We’ve all struggled to lose weight or exercise or get up earlier or all sorts of things we wish we’d do differently and it's hard to do! It’s never easy to change even the most simple of habits, but in our podcast today we’ll see that the followers of Jesus not only changed their personal behavior from that of fearful cowards to fearless leaders but that thousands of Jewish believers totally changed the faith practices that had been the core of their identity since the time of Abraham. In our podcast, we’ll look at the history of the incredible changes that took place after Jesus Resurrection that we read about in the book of Acts and then we’ll look at two of the earliest books that were written to the early church, James and Galatians. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/yvon-prehn8/support
Who is Jesus? Secular history and all the major religions of the world agree He existed, but they have very different answers as to who He is In our podcast today we’ll look at the history that verifies His existence, the beliefs about Him that have no basis in history all to help us answer the most important question of time and eternity—Who do you think Jesus is?

What is the most important thing about the Christian faith? How does it claim to connect you with God, forgive your sins, and give you eternal life? • Is it knowing all the things you learned about the Old Testament if you’ve been listening to this podcast the last few months? • Is it holding to certain beliefs like a 6-day Creation theory or 5-point Calvinism? • Or is it what you do like being sure that you don’t do cheat on your spouse or taxes? • As we will see in our lesson today it isn’t a what or a what you do, that is the most important thing about Christianity, that is at the core of what it takes to connect you with God, it’s a WHO. The Bible is very clear •  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 If we want a relationship with God in this life, the forgiveness of the sins that have severed our relationship with Him and to live in heaven after we die, Jesus said He is the only way we can achieve that. He said that because though he was God, he came to earth, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins and by his historically verifiable resurrection from the dead, validated all the claims he made for himself and that He is the only way of salvation.

What kind of a relationship do you have with someone if you never talk to them? OR if they talk to you and you ignore them? In our podcast today we’ll review God’s conversations with His people throughout the Old Testament and what he finally had to say to them before becoming silent for 400 years. Along the way, we’ll talk about how we ought to respond when we read his messages today.

If you want to describe the perfect super-hero, a sterling example of strength, integrity, leadership, and self-giving, you could list these characteristics in minute dictionary detail or you could simply say, “Captain America.” An image can contain volumes of backstory and meaning in a few words—the challenge is you need to understand the meaning of the image. The books of the Old Testament and Zachariah is one of the main ones that do this, uses imagery in much the same way. The challenge to modern readers have is that we don’t know the backstory of the imagery. For us visions of myrtle trees, golden lampstands, and a flying scroll make about as much sense to us as Captain America, Thor, and Spiderman would make to the Old Testament Jews. In our podcast, we’ll discover the meaning of the images in this fascinating book that also contains more specific prophecy about Jesus than any other Old Testament book other than Isaiah.
