Law is a system of principles which are ordained or established rules of conduct as regulating the actions of its member and enforced by penalties. God gave the biblical law to the Israelites. God was Israel’s king. God gave the people what they needed to know His character: infinite, personal, and moral. We find God through His law. Mark provided a review on the first three classes then continued with this emphasis: Biblical law reflects holy ethics in a way that would guide Israel in its time and place in history to fulfill God's purpose by walking in God’s holiness.

God gave Israel signs to show they were separate from the nations. This showed the national identity of Gods people. Common questions arise: 1) Is the Old Testament Law applicable to Christians today? 2) What parts of the Old Testament are applicable today? 3) What is the justification for accepting parts of the Old Testament as binding, but not others? Mark began to share various answers and positions of people, with two covered in this lesson. Bad answer #1: The law doesn’t apply to Christians because it was nailed to the cross. But they belong together. Paul wrote in 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 confirming OT laws. The law was never given for people to be saved by it. Because it’s Impossible. We need to read the law with understanding. Jesus came to fulfill the law. God's law never becomes void. Bad answer #2: “The moral section of the Old Testament Law is binding on believers, but not the ‘other’ sections.” What sections are moral? Who determines this? Too often we decide what is appropriate by what we feel instead of God. Listen to Mark discuss the various types of law and how the Bible addresses them.

The earliest known law dates back to 2100BC, and Biblical Law dates 1400-1200 BC. Mark shows us the laws that governed people were dictated by man. But God gave the Law of Sinai to Moses. Implications: What does Biblical Law mean for us? — God gave the Law of Sinai to Moses. These are God’s commandments. He called the Israelites and us to be like Him, to be holy. God made you and me to be in His image: we share His moral makeup. What is right and good and holy to God is to be the same with us. (Num. 15:40).

After giving an overview of different types of law, Mark explained that Biblical law is more than a rule of conduct or action prescribed by a controlling authority; God reveals Himself through the law. By the time of Jesus, the law held a central place in Jewish life. Biblical law can tell us what to do, but it doesn’t give us life. And the law wasn’t the source of eternal life.

Mark elaborated on each of those points and how they should be applied today so we are blessed to be a blessing to others.https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona-lesson-12-5-31-20-mark-lanier/https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona-lesson-12-5-31-20-mark-lanier/audio.mp3 Biblical Study While Living with Corona - Lesson 11 5/24/20 Mark Lanier Mark Lanier http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/c6bq5S94m9M/ lessons/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona-lesson-11-5-24-20-mark-lanier/ Sun, 24 May 2020 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnowebmaster@biblical-literacy.comhttps://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona-lesson-11-5-24-20-mark-lanier/https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona/biblical-study-while-living-with-corona-lesson-11-5-24-20-mark-lanier/audio.mp3 Biblical Study While Living with Corona - Lesson 10 05/17/2020 Mark Lanier Mark Lanier Mark continues the series - The Story on the Road to Emmaus.

The number one issue facing most people during the worldwide pandemic is fear and uncertainty. The Bible speaks about these concerns. Those in biblical times shared similar anxieties: life, health, loved ones, jobs/finances, economy, life changes, supplies to exist, and more. Psalm 42 & 43 speaks to our concerns. The psalmist was having a tough time holding his stressful life together. He learned surviving emotional turmoil means engaging the head and not just the emotions of the heart.

Paul writes he is not “ashamed” of the Gospel. The translation of the Greek word for “ashamed” shows us Paul did not "experience a sense of loss of status” because of his belief in the Gospel. He preached Jesus died for our sins.

This passage shows how Jesus' life experiences relate to us. Jesus was also man, thirsty and weary from the walking. The Samaritan woman at the well wasn't supposed to be drawing water in the heat of the day. Jews and Samaritans disliked each other, and yet Jesus engaged in conversation with her.

What is the significance of the Hebrews words and language? 3. What is the message God was trying to convey then and how does it apply now? God was concerned of how Israel understood God, humanity, and other important matters and used the people's concepts of the universe’s structure at that time.https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/is-god-guilt-of-fraud-formerly-the-greatness-of-god-examining-gods-cv/gog-017-is-god-guilty-of-fraud-science-and-faith-part-5/https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/is-god-guilt-of-fraud-formerly-the-greatness-of-god-examining-gods-cv/gog-017-is-god-guilty-of-fraud-science-and-faith-part-5/audio.mp3 SE - IGGOF Brent Johnson - Take Action Now Brent Johnson Pastor Brent Johnson, of Champion Forest Baptis tChurch, discusses in this lesson "Take Action Now".

Science and Faith Part 4 Mark Lanier Is God Guilty of Fraud: Part 16 -Science or Faith Part 5Mark opens this week’s lesson with the question: Does science conflict with faith? Faith is something that instructs us to use science to good ends, gives us a reason, purpose, and infuses us with morality. If Scripture and science seem to differ, keep digging. Embracing science increases our understanding of Scripture. On the question of creation or evolution, Mark lays out two major concerns for many people: 1) Do we believe in the integrity of God’s word? 2) Is there a need for God. Listen to Mark discuss the creation accounting in Genesis 1 through 2:3 as he addresses these additional questions: How literal do we take these verses? Fully literal or allegorical? Did God speak Hebrew when he spoke the world into existence? Did God make the world in 6, 24 hour literal days? Are there other ways to understand the creation story? Join Mark as he continues Is God Guilty of Fraud?

In this part 1 lesson, Mark discusses the controversy of faith and science in an overview of the lessons to come. Many people think faith and science are competitive. What does the Bible teach about science? In the argument of creation or evolution, Mark explains that God is the uncreated. Science is our tool to combat the fallen world, and the proof is in Scripture. In the topic of faith and medicine, he refers to Matthew 8 in which several of Jesus's healings are recorded. Mark reviews the primary objections to mixing faith and medicine. If we do not have a biblical view of science, it’s difficult to find faith in God. Mark concludes that science is faith's physical tool for fighting the physical pain and difficulties of the fallen world.

Part A Mark Lanier Mark continued his class on The Greatness of God: Examining Gods CV. Mark began the lesson by explaining the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9 with a look into the language and concepts of the ancient Mesopotamia area. Forever people have been looking for God. The tower was a ziggurat, a structure several stories high with a staircase to entice gods to come down to earth. The passage is written in the literary technique of that day - chiastic structure: using a ‘mirroring’ effect and placing the punch or point of the story in the middle.

Mark began the lesson by explaining the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9 with a look into the language and concepts of the ancient Mesopotamia area. Forever people have been looking for God. The tower was a ziggurat, a structure several stories high with a staircase to entice gods to come down to earth. The passage is written in the literary technique of that day - chiastic structure: using a ‘mirroring’ effect and placing the punch or point of the story in the middle.

By using this method we are looking at "what makes God, God?". Using this approach he discusses the questions, "who is He?", "what is He?", "why it makes a difference to us?", "how we know this?". As humans we tend to classify God by gender or as a super hero, and reduce Him to something we can understand, which makes Him nothing more than an idol.

C.V.’s are a modern cultural invention, but that examine one’s qualifications and interests.  One wishes the Bible had God’s C.V. but the Bible is not written that way.  As central to my effort to write a book about the Greatness of God, I decided that I would begin writing a C.V. of God.  The C.V. could never be exhaustive, for no man can fully comprehend God for who he is, much less all he has done.  The C.V. couldn’t contain all of God’s accomplishments, if for no other reason than that one C.V. can’t hold all of history, which has unfolded under the divine hand of God.  So my C.V. for God is one that sets out in brief form, some of the major accomplishments which are subject of this book.

Mark explained the word “worship” comes from the Anglo-Saxon words meaning to “ascribe worth.” He expanded on these facets of worship: 1) Gratitude: Luke 17:11-19 teaches us that gratitude to God is worship and praise. 2) God-centered: Matthew 2:1-8 shows us true worship is centered on God.

Paul spoke to the epicureans, who were materialists and believed truth came only from reasoning. They also claimed no afterlife. Happiness was life's goal, to be free from pain and fear. Paul also spoke to the stoics, who believed in one God without shape. Their philosophy was God doesn't care about us and is non emotional, and so their ideology was to avoid emotions.

The ‘aorist’ tense occurs where the writer wants to show action as complete within itself, with no particular emphasis on the events spoken of. It is the “default” tense. When the ‘present’ and ‘imperfect tenses are used, attention is commanded. The action of these verbs is focused on it being in progress. The ‘perfect’ tense references a state of affairs.

The printing press had a powerful influence on the Free Church movement in that Bibles were printed for all to read. As people sought to live out a direct and personal relationship to God instead of just affiliating with the local Church, the Free Church was begun.

The core Christian truth that we are sinners saved by grace stands in direct opposition to the teaching of Islam; The Qur’an teaches that man makes choices to sin or live righteously.

Mark Lanier Church History: Chapter 18 – St. Benedictine and Early Monasticism The secularization of the church had many effects, both good and bad. As the first Christian emperor, Constantine passed significant laws demonstrating a Christian influence on the state. But against this background of faith came lives of sin and disregard for the holy, which led to the rise of monasticism Among many of the monastics and the movements associated with them, we see them living in self-denial moved by a spirit of humility and love. This is particularly true of St. Benedict. Benedict was born around 480 in Nursia (modern Norcia, Italy, north of Rome). And although he was born into a family of wealthy nobility he never esteemed the world’s goods. Benedict is attributed with a creating a “Rule” to govern the monastic life in ways that make constructive Christian growth in community life. These rules governed not only the monasteries for Benedict, but they also became the core rules for many monastic communities in Western Christendom even today.

Mark Lanier Church History: Chapter 17 – The Papacy Our English word “pope” comes from the Latin papa, and from the Greek word pappas. Even though these words were the common everyday expressions a child would use for his father, today the concept of “Pope” is more than a reference to a spiritual father. The Roman Catholic Church describes the Pope as the holder of many titles, but the focus of this lesson is the title, “Successor of the Chief of Apostles,” and it begins with Peter. But the views of the Protestant and Catholic churches differ on the role of and the need for a pope. The Roman church considered the church as an “organized, visible, juristic and corporate society.” As such the church set up a government by Christ.

Mark Lanier Church History: Chapter 15 Part 2– St. Augustine Augustine’s book, ‘Confessions’ could be considered an autobiography of sorts. This lesson focuses more the core principles of his theology. On good and evil, he says that only God is perfect. When God created us, He stated, it was “good” not perfect. God made good and when that good is corrupted, it becomes what we call “evil.” Pure evil is what is left when all good is stripped from something or someone. On the Church sacraments, Augustine argued that the power of the sacraments (baptism and the Lord’s Supper) was in the elements themselves, not the priest administering the elements. The meaning of the sacrament was that God met man there, not that the priest brought God and man together. On grace and free will, If we were to ask Augustine why some people are saved and why others are left to hell’s condemnation, Augustine would ultimately refer to the mystery and secrets of God that we do not know or understand.

As the Empire fell the Christian church was affected tremendously. Augustine was born in 354 A.D. in Northern Africa. Most of his early years he claimed to be a Christian, but he was part of a cult. But after his conversion in 387 (by St. Ambrose, no less), he became one of the most influential Christians of that time. In that same time period the Roman Empire was crumbling and was sacked in 410 A.D. by the Goth’s who were invading from the North because Attila from the East was displacing them.

He became an ascetic, moved out of town and devoted his life to prayer and committing large portions of scripture to memory. He had to overcome some significant temptations from Satan. Some 20 years later when his friends convinced him to come out of seclusion it seemed to all that he was pure of soul and “completely under control.” He went to Egypt just prior to Constantine’s rise to power expecting to be martyred but instead he ministered to those who were being martyred.

Mark Lanier Chapter 13 – Athanasius, Ambrose and Arianism The variety of issues discussed in the Council of Nicaea (325 AD) ranged from how to date Easter to whether to ordain eunuchs as priests, but everything was secondary to settling the Arian controversy. Arius taught that Jesus was made by God and was not divine on the same level as God. Athanasius played a key role in opposing Arianism, condemning it as heresy and emerged as the key figure in the triumph of orthodox theology. Ambrose also continued to oppose heresies in the church. He sold off his family holdings and gave the proceeds to those in need. He opposed the Empress Justina who was a strong supporter of Arianism.

Mark Lanier Chapter 12 – Constantine and Council of Nicaea Constantine adopted Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire and he moved the Empire’s capital from Rome to Byzantium, which was renamed in his honor, Constantinople. Today we call it Istanbul. He was instrumental in organizing the Council of Nicaea and during that meeting, which lasted several months, the position of the group, termed the “Nicene Creed” was written as a position paper on Arianism. The events that took place before Constantine’s rise to power resulted in a dramatic shift for the church leaders. Prior to his influence the Christians were persecuted; once he gained the leadership position Christianity became recognized as the one true religion and the church leaders became leaders of the Empire.

Clement believed that God had providently provided the world with Socrates and Plato to prepare the Greeks for the gospel in the same way that God provided the Old Testament to prepare the Jews for the gospel.

Mark Lanier Summary Many early believers were martyred by the Romans and whatever ‘books’ they had…many early manuscripts for the New Testament…were burned. Nevertheless, we still have some original manuscripts that survived. Emperor Constantine (272-337) ordered Christianity as the the state religion of Rome. He ordered that copies of the New Testament be made to enable better dissemination. The “Codex Sinaiticus” (discovered in 1844 – and believed to have been written in 350 A.D.), may be one of the original copies and includes all of the New Testament. The Biblical claim is that the Bible is both a divine work and a human work. God entrusted the Old Testament to the Jews and similarly God worked to produce His word to the Church in the New Testament text. The Apostles considered Jesus the Messiah and a prophet. All of His words carried the same weight and authority as the Old Testament. His words and the words of his closest Apostles were considered essential to the New Testament.

Our Old Testament is essentially the same as the Hebrew scripture. Some of the books were separated when they were translated into Greek (and this work was called the Septuagint) and that is why there are 39 books in our Old Testament and only 24 in the Hebrew Bible.

Mark Lanier Chapter 9 – Alexandria and Early Biblical Understanding Reading and understanding the Bible was challenging in the early Church as it is still today. When passages do not seem to make sense it opens up to interpretation. Many early leaders struggled with this and their writings shed some insight into prevalent thought. Philo, of Alexandria tried to find consistency between the Old Testament and prevailing Greek philosophies. The ‘Epistle of Barnabas’ provides an allegorical approach that attempts to go beyond any apparent meaning. Clement of Alexandria (circa 200 A.D.) combined philosophy of the day to aid in interpretation. Origen taught that there were layers of interpretation for scripture. The Apostle Paul made clear to Timothy that he, and by inference we, should recognize that all Scripture is ‘breathed‘ by God and that we should ‘rightly handle’ Scripture, which is a challenge for us to earnestly study to become equipped to rightly handle the Word of God.

Mark Lanier Many New Testament churches met in homes of the wealthy because these homes would have had enough room to accommodate the larger groups. The earliest official “church building” was a converted house in Dura-Europos, Syria, which is dated to have been converted around 250AD. Although there is not a record of how a typical service was performed early church services were most likely patterned after Jewish services which were built around four events: praise, prayer, Scripture reading, and instruction. There is clear evidence that the early church was a singing church; Paul encouraged the churches to sing to each other “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.” One of the important differences between the services in the apostolic church and Jewish synagogues was that the Lord’s Supper was observed, and the evidence points to weekly observance on the Lord’s Day.

Mark Lanier Ignatius of Antioch was the Bishop of the church at Antioch circa 110 AD. Typically Christians were charged with atheism because they would not worship Caesar as god and for this they were martyred. He wrote seven letters to the churches along his way from Antioch to Rome providing strong guidance in various Christian themes.

Mark Lanier This lesson covers John 4:43 - 4:45 and the supporting  context verses can offer a purely secular explanation for the rebellion of Israel at a time when stronger surrounding nations were set to take Israel over. Yet the spiritual truth is much more profound, and adds a dimension through faith that should speak to us today. God constantly works through the world as he works in the world. Our tendency is to credit God simply in those areas where we have gaps of knowledge and an inability to offer any other explanation. This is a tragic view as not only setting faith to disappear (when and if the knowledge gap is closed through new understanding), but also in failing to see God’s hand in weaving the fabric of everyday life. When Jesus urged us to pray daily for God to give us bread, he was not suggesting that a loaf would magically appear out of nowhere on our porch each morning.

Instead he maintained a focus on serving the Lord and winning people to Christ. While Paul was in Roman custody, God came to him in a special way.  Luke records:  The Lord stood by him and said, “Take courage, for as you have testified to the facts about me in Jerusalem, so you must testify also in Rome.”  (Acts 23:11) Would you have the courage to act as Paul did, to continue to serve the Kingdom, and spread the Good News?

Mark Lanier In the conclusion of Paul’s third missionary journey, he leaves Ephesus, traveling back towards Corinth. He stayed in Greece for 3 months planning to sail back through Syria when a plot against his life caused him to change plans. Instead of a sea route, Paul took an overland route through Macedonia. A young man, Eutychus (whose name means Lucky), fell asleep while listening to Paul’s teaching and fell out of the window to the ground three stories below. Paul went to the street and cradled Eutychus in his arms; God restored Eutychus’ life. At Miletus, about 30 miles from Ephesus, Paul summoned the church elders and gave an incredible “good-bye” speech. He told the elders he was going to Jerusalem, under no illusions as to what he would face. God had prepared him for imprisonment and death.

Mark Lanier In Paul’s letter to the thriving Roman Christian community at the time, he begins his letter as a “servant of Christ” whom god called into the role of an apostle. Paul’s desire is to come to Rome to preach Christ’s death and resurrection as God’s means of forgiveness for everyone’s sins. He condemns the reign of sin over Jew and Gentile and reinforces the fact that God’s judgment is simple for Jew or Gentile. If you do right, you live eternally in his care. But if you sin you are condemned. Only through faith in Christ as Savior to all who believe, whether Jew or Gentile, do we have the grace that saves us. Paul then gives practical examples of Christian conduct: do not get arrogant; love genuinely; hate evil. In closing he tells them he is still hopeful to come to Rome and that God will eventually crush Satan. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/QJtX9jINzYI/ lessons/new-testament-survey/lesson-22-romans/ Sun, 29 Sep 2013 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comno In Paul’s letter to the thriving Roman Christian community at the time, he begins his letter as a “servant of Christ” whom god called into the role of an apostle.

From Macedonia he wrote to them, explaining that he decided not to come see them because he felt he could not be the “aroma of God” he needed to be in order to be a God-like influence. Instead, he would cause them more pain.

It is important to remember the context in which Paul’s letter was written.  The church had numerous major problems – sex, food, idolatry, lawsuits, divisions, bad theology, women’s issues.  Prior letters had already been sent back and forth between Paul and the Corinthians.  When we read 1st Corinthians we are in the middle of an ongoing conversation. In Chapter 1, Paul reminds the Corinthians they are called to a common fellowship with a common destiny.  He appeals to them to drop their petty groups where they labeled themselves as “following Paul”, or “Peter”, or “Apollos”.  They should all fellow Christ!

Mark Lanier Paul went to Corinth from Athens. Corinth, by all accounts was a wealthy and vibrant city, mostly due the unique location for trade and travel.

Mark Lanier Why do people read comics?  Specifically, how can "Spider Man" hold the attention of so many when it is clearly a fantastic story of bizarre fantasy and far away places that have no basis in reality? Our culture isn't the first to follow and believe fantastic stories.  Grab your favorite book of Ancient near Eastern myths, and you find some pretty incredible stories of bravery, fantastic feats of strength and exploration. We can also look to the book of Ezekial and find amazing visions that stretch our imaginations and our understanding.  Yet, God uses these stories to illustrate His message through Ezekiel.  Join Mark Lanier and gain a deeper understanding of the visions of Ezekiel, part 2. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/PBB-mKdhzgw/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-54-ezekiel-part-2/ Sun, 04 Mar 2012 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comno Why do people read comics?  Specifically, how can "Spider Man" hold the attention of so many when it is clearly a fantastic story of bizarre fantasy and far away places that have no basis in reality?

Mark Lanier Have you ever experienced the loss of a friendship because one of you moved?  Moving far apart and the passage of time can work a one-two punch on continuity in life. This is even truer in the deep recesses of history, before telephones, readily available books (and literacy), and easy transportation. We often speak of the world becoming smaller because it used to be so difficult to keep up with things far removed. Before the advent of the internet and social media the world was much larger than it is today.  Can you imagine how much larger it was in 600BC? This simple observation of life is relevant in the study of Ezekiel.  Join Mark Lanier as we explore the unlikely idea that a small mountain tribe's worship of their perceived local deity could survive a dispersal of the people, removal of their tmeple, a loss of their monarchy, and destruction of their capital.  It would seem preposterous and against all odds.  However, the worship of YHWH is billions strong today.

Mark Lanier What was the core message of Jeremiah? Different scholars would no doubt give different answers. Jeremiah’s life was built around the word of the LORD. He was commissioned by the word, to deliver the word faithfully and to follow the word. Jeremiah did so, at great personal risk and expense. His life stands in stark contrast to a generation that refused to hear the word of the Lord. By touching jeremiah's mouth, the Lord sets it apart for his purposes, placing his words into Jeremiah's mouth.  Join us as we try and understand the varied and illuminating conclusions from Mark Lanier's unique perspective.   Hopefully, this lesson will spur on greater personal study and consideration.

Mark Lanier "Jeremiah was a bullfrog, such a good friend of mine."  Are you old enough to rember those lyrics from Three Dog Night's song, "Joy to the World"?  Did you know that the original lyrics were once intended to be, "Jeremiah was a PROPHET, such a good friend of mine."  It is true that Jeremiah was indeed a prophet, however his message didn't lend itself to winning over many friends!  Fortunately for us, today we can study Jeremiah and gleen a lot of wonderful truth and insight. The book of Jeremiah has so much material, such a depth of character presentation; it is tied closely within its historical setting, yet it maintains a vision of the future. It is a collection of material, not a chronological presentation, so it is ripe for (and demands) thorough and careful study.

Have you ever felt that way? Have you ever felt the die was cast? Sometimes, does it seem that life has dealt you a hand that you are stuck with, and no matter what you do, you cannot change what you have before you? Whatever will be, will be, regardless of your decisions and actions? This futility is not found in the stories we study today.

Mark Lanier Crisis... The very nature of the word illicits a certain fear.  Something has gone wrong.  "Normal" has been replaced by something unexpected, something tragic, something unwanted.  So, how do you navigate through a crisis?  Can you come through a crisis unscathed or will you be changed, perhaps scarred forever? We turn our attention to the crisis that framed the life of Hezekiah, king of Judah. In his life’s story, we see how he handled crises of monumental proportions, and how he walked away – scarred, but not defeated. We see a king who learned lessons early and found them sustaining him later.

Mark Lanier Repeatedly, we make choices and live with the consequences. Sometimes life seems more like a rat’s treadmill where we run without regard to destination, simply doing what comes natural.

Mark Lanier In the "game of life" we have many choices to make regarding our occupations and the jobs we wish to pursue.  Should I pursue a career in finance, law, medicine, technology, prophecy... Prophecy?!  In our current time, becoming a prophet is likely very, very far down the list on most career counselor's list of things to do.  Yet there is one man who became a prophet and found the occupation both very difficult and very rewarding. Today we study Hosea, one of the foundation prophets of Israel in the Old Testament.  Hosea was one in a long line of prophets that were ignored and even persecuted for the sake of the message. Yet his message did not go out and fail to return. Hosea is repeatedly quoted in the New Testament, and his experience forms a basis for better understanding the ultimate act in history, the crucifixion of Christ.

It can inspire questions, it can document relationships and activities, it can comment upon events and their causes and results, and it can simply provide interesting and engaging stories.

W.

For that matter, if there is no God, then what “virtue” is there in doing well to others when those others are in no position to do good back to you? What is the reason for doing anything beyond securing your own enjoyment in life and that of others you care about?

Mark Lanier Setting aside the Bible for a moment, if there is a Supreme Being, and if he is able to communicate, and if he created humanity, it would seem logical that the Supreme Being would reach out and communicate with humanity. Francis A. Schaeffer expressed the principle that a personal communicating God would certainly want to communicate to the personal communicating beings he created. Now, picking up the Bible we find that it explains that God has communicated directly, through his creation, through others, and in so doing, he has set out a revelation of historical interactions with mankind. Among God’s communications in Scripture is the book of Proverbs. This is a book where we read principles of behavior and instructions for wise living. These are concepts that understandably a communicating God would want to give to his people. They are also concepts that are applicable, and to some extent evidenced, by the lives of all peoples, whether Godly or not.

Mark Lanier We live in an era of classifications. Since the advent of the scientific age, scholars have worked to classify most every aspect of life. Organisms are classified by species and genus. Food groups are vegetables, dairy, grains, and meats. We have the cosmos classified by galaxies and solar systems. It is not surprising to find out that some scholars have worked to classify the Psalms into various types. These divisions are wonderful means to help understand how Psalms are put together, how they function and were used, and how we should interpret and apply them today. The only catch is that a system of classifications is never able to really hold all the Psalms.

Mark Lanier How would you rate your knowledge of poetry?  Is your knowledge limited to "The Night Before Christmas" or the always popular, "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...?"  Or maybe you are a true connoisseur of Shakespear's sonnets, of iambic pentameter, and various rhyming schemes.  Or maybe you haven't given poetry much thought at all.  As a student of the Bible, you are faced with reading and understanding poetry, no matter your expertise. As Mark Lanier begins a multi-part study of Psalms, we begin by learning that the Psalms are poetry.  Yet they are not simply expressions of the heart and mind, but they are also tools of teaching. They inspire as they increase our understanding of God and man. The insights that can come from deliberative chewing on the messages within the simplest of verses, heightens the appreciation that God has used many different literary tools to present his revelation to humanity.   http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/E2RmQ5KhDSo/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-38-psalms-part-1/ Sat, 09 Jul 2011 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoHow would you rate your knowledge of poetry?  Is your knowledge limited to "The Night Before Christmas" or the always popular, "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...?"  Or maybe you are a true connoisseur of Shakespear's sonnets, of iambic pentameter, and vawebmaster@biblical-literacy.comHow would you rate your knowledge of poetry?  Is your knowledge limited to "The Night Before Christmas" or the always popular, "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...?"  Or maybe you are a true connoisseur of Shakespear's sonnets, of iambic pentameter, and various rhyming schemes.  Or maybe you haven't given poetry much thought at all.  As a student of the Bible, you are faced with reading and understanding poetry, no matter your expertise.

Mark Lanier There are many areas in our world that need the light of God shining and illuminating the dark corners of sin, hypocrisy, and ignorance. Racism has no part among God’s people, nor does abuse of the poor. These are social messages, but that does not relegate them as distant concerns of God. As Mark Lanier returns to finish a study of Amos, we are reminded that God is not simply concerned about the personal sins of one’s life. God is also concerned with our corporate and social interactions on a larger scale. God cares about the justice in our society. He cares for the poor and downtrodden. He cares for the outcast and the alien. When God’s people do not care as he does, the words of Amos ring with direct confrontation and super clarity. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/a5gt9vB8Hxo/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-37-amos-part-2/ Sat, 02 Jul 2011 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comno There are many areas in our world that need the light of God shining and illuminating the dark corners of sin, hypocrisy, and ignorance.

Mark Lanier The United States of America is a country that prides itself on independence, freedom, equality, and economics. The American economic system is termed “capitalism.” It is a free enterprise system that allows the market to dictate prices for goods and services. People are allowed to work in this system for their own individual prosperity. The good side of capitalism is its ability to raise the level of life for everyone in a society, as raising water lifts every boat. Left without some manner of regulation, however, capitalism can lead to the wealthy preying upon the poor, letting “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.” In a land of opportunity, many believe that kind of unfettered capitalism can be abusive. These ideas come to the front as Mark Lanier combines a lesson that teaches the last three letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and begins the study of the prophet Amos. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/hxonmMLJm9s/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-37-amos-part-1/ Sat, 25 Jun 2011 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoThe United States of America is a country that prides itself on independence, freedom, equality, and economics.

Mark Lanier One of the first questions often posed in a discussion on Jonah is, “Was it real?” People debate whether the story is a factual account of a large fish gobbling and then regurgitating Jonah or whether it is more akin to a C.S. Lewis story that has true lessons to teach, using a story medium to convey them (think Chronicles of Narnia or The Great Divorce). That is a subject that is almost moot to discuss. (God certainly has the ability to make a fish grand enough to accomplish the task.  He is God!) Our goal needs to be to understand the narrative for its purposes rather than to debate the feasibility of the events. This is especially important as Mark Lanier considers the book of Jonah. This book has some incredible Hebrew word play, some very important messages both for Israel in its day and for the church in perpetuity, and it asks questions on an individual level that challenge people who wish to live right before God. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/zKyHB41PRQ0/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-36-jonah-part-1/ Fri, 10 Jun 2011 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoOne of the first questions often posed in a discussion on Jonah is, “Was it real?” People debate whether the story is a factual account of a large fish gobbling and then regurgitating Jonah or whether it is more akin to a C.S.

Mark Lanier We have a tendency to read the Bible and understand many of the events to be “holy stories” removed from the real-life experiences of every day. Biblical stories are indeed “holy stories,” but they are holy stories that were real life experiences in an everyday world. We live the same real life as the people we find in the Bible, and holy stories are no less a part of our biographies. We understand this better as we examine the biblical stories in their everyday context. Because Israel and Judah were political entities, as well as a collection of individuals, part of the everyday context includes the political factors.

How do we avoid the problem of narcissism, so confident and proud in who we are and what we think that we can give credit to no one else? Sometimes it seems as if people think they have outgrown the biblical basics of God. In the face of this, the Biblical narratives cry out. They proclaim the truth of God in his revelation.

It would be nice to have a silver-bullet answer that is a definite winner every time a decision is needed. But life is not like that. God has not made us machines where we have no need to think, no need to learn, no need to process, no need to pray, and no need to grow.

Mark Lanier The English letters Yhvw don't appear to form a sensible word.  There are no vowels as we would expect in our English language.  Yet, for centuries and for countless people, they form the most holy word in human speech. The word is so holy that many people refuse to say it out loud.

In substantiating his argument, Rutherford quoted the Biblical account of King Saul. Rutherford believed that the law is over the king rather than the king over the law.

Mark Lanier Contrast sets one thing against another to give definition, meaning, insight, greater understanding, and clarity. In design work, good contrast is key. Even beyond the tangible, however, contrast helps clarify meaning. Sometimes theologians find it easier to say what God is not, rather than simply what God is!

Mark Lanier A main operation of the American court system is to re-construct history, then applying justice to "fix" the problems that occurred. The process is consistent: the lawyers research the evidence, the experts express their opinions, the experts opinions are tested both for consistency as well as bias, and the case is then presented to a jury (or sometimes a judge). After all the evidence and expert testimony is given to the jurors, lawyers are called upon to give a closing argument. The closing argument is each lawyer‘s chance to summarize the evidence and advocate his or her respective positions. Join Mark Lanier as he gives a closing argument about the Israelite settlement of the Promised Land. The goal is not to bring the legal system into the church.

Mark Lanier In a courtroom, a lawyer must learn how to handle the facts.  The good facts, the bad facts, and the facts that have no bearing on his case.  So, how does a good attorney handle all of the facts of the case?  According to Mark Lanier, trial lawyer and lecturer, the best way to do this is to recognize all of the facts.  All of the facts make up the whole story.  Therefore all of the facts make up the truth!

Mark Lanier Authorship of the book of Judges is no easy question because no human author is identified internally in the book. No one is able to give 100 percent certainty on what human wrote the book of Judges. Therefore, a fair first question is: why do we care who wrote it? The answer lies, in part at least, in recognizing that whom the author is (at least in function if not in name) might help in understanding why the book of Judges was written.

But instead of completely abandoning the Israelites, God gave them a second chance of sorts – a do-over, a mulligan. Here was their second chance to enter the land that God had promised them through Abraham and Moses, to see God work in ways that only God could work, and to be a testimony to the world of what a great God He is.https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-21-journey-lessons-from-joshua/https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-21-journey-lessons-from-joshua/audio.mp3 Lesson 20 - Joshua and the Promised Land - Part 3 W. Mark Lanier One of the more amazing Bible stories we learn as children is the battle of Jericho.  We even have a song to help us remember the event, "Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down." Why is ths story one of such foundational understanding in our youth?  It certainly makes for great story telling.  It underscores the hand of God on the people of Israel and their new leader Joshua.  But does the archaeological record support such a story? Join Mark Lanier for Part 3 of "Joshua and the Promised Land" as we explore the opinions, archaeological record, and evidence of this Old Testament account of history.  Through it all we will discover that nothing in the archaeological record destroys or proves our faith. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/pKtKpc3_Vuo/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-20-joshua-and-the-promised-land-part-3/ Sat, 13 Nov 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoOne of the more amazing Bible stories we learn as children is the battle of Jericho.  We even have a song to help us remember the event, "Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbliwebmaster@biblical-literacy.comOne of the more amazing Bible stories we learn as children is the battle of Jericho.  We even have a song to help us remember the event, "Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down."

Mark Lanier Are you familiar with Father Guido Sarducci's sketch from the 1970's where he offers his five-minute university degree?  He humorously taught us that there are a limited number of things we will remember five years after graduating from college.  So, why bother learning the entire subject, let's just learn what we will remember five years later. As Mark Lanier continues in Part 2 of "Joshua and the Promised Land" we attempt to go just a little deeper than Father Guido Sarducci might recommend.  We hope to open a door to understanding the issues behind the archaeological record of Joshua and Jericho.  We will compare the archaeological findings to the data supplied in the Bible. This means exploring some of the more important finds, and discussing the interpretations of those finds. Rarely is a finding absolute in its import or meaning, and often a great deal of interpretation is involved, giving a range of possible understandings. Join Mark as he suggests that the main use for archaeology is to put Biblical stories and passages into a cultural context so that they can better be understood.

Mark Lanier During a recent discussion on the significance of each Jewish holy day, a devout Jew responded at one point saying, “As a general rule, most Jewish holidays follow a simple formula—they tried to kill us, they didn’t succeed, let’s eat.”  While there is certainly an element of humor in the comment, there is also an element of seriousness because many of the holidays do derive from efforts to stamp out the Jewish people. Join Mark Lanier as we push deeper into the Jewish holidays.  A set of those holidays falls in rapid succession during each autumn, beginning with the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah1) and ending with the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur2). It is to those fall holidays authorized by God, given to Moses, that we turn our attention today.

Mark Lanier We live in a numbers age. Many of us, have a driver’s license number, a social security number, a PIN number, numerical passwords, numbered bank accounts, credit card numbers, a house number, a zip code number, etc.,—more numbers than we can count! If we go further back in history to ancient Israel, then we find still a different time numerically. The ancient Hebrew language had words for numbers, but they were much more limited than the Greeks or Romans. The Ancient Near Eastern societies were not built around numbers the way ours is today. Mark Lanier reminds us we always need to be careful to seek first to understand Scripture within its own historical context and frame of reference, for God placed his revelation in historical interactions with his people.

Mark Lanier Have you ever played the game of "Clue?"  Clue is a logical deduction game where clues unfold helping you determine who committed the murder, which weapon was used, and where the murder was committed. “Colonel Mustard did it with a candlestick in the study” might be the answer. Or perhaps it was Professor Plum. As you assemble the clues, you are in a race to deduce the solution before the other players. The race can sometimes make you guess the answer without all the support you need to have certainty. The practical effect of the game was that guessing before a final solution was clear always left the possibility of guessing wrong, even though you were able to eliminate 90 percent of the options.

Or perhaps it was Professor Plum. As you assemble the clues, you are in a race to deduce the solution before the other players. The race can sometimes make you guess the answer without all the support you need to have certainty. The practical effect of the game was that guessing before a final solution was clear always left the possibility of guessing wrong, even though you were able to eliminate 90 percent of the options.

The problem really is not what we go through, it is our perspective of the One overseeing the journey. Simply put, God often works outside the things we can see with our eyes, touch with our hands, or understand with our minds, and that makes us feel that He must not be aware of our situation. If only God would offer an explanation for it. If only we understood the reason. If only we knew why. If only.

Mark Lanier In 1997, an annual research seminar was conducted at the University College in London, England. The subject was: The Origin of Early Israel—Current Debate: Biblical, Historical and Archaeological Perspectives. The study reflected a sharp division among scholars over the genesis of the Jews as a people. This division still exists among academics that argue for and against the Abrahamic start of the Jews, the issues of the Egyptian background as provided in the Bible, how the Israelites came to inhabit Canaan (swift military conquest or nomadic infiltration?), and even whether King David existed. Join Mark Lanier in his compelling response to the critics of the Scripture's account of the Jewish people and the Exodus.  We will explore the issue in two parts.  First, by carefully examining the qualifications and motives of the authors’ opinions.

Mark Lanier Faith is like racquetball in some ways, and yet, it is very different in others. Like racquetball, faith is a personal matter; it is not a team sport. Each of us has our individual faith walk with the Lord. There are times where we are on our game, where our intimacy with the Father is warmly felt, and consciously confirmed. Then, other times we are “off.” The warmth is not so great, and doubts crowd the mind. Unlike racquetball, faith is not easily measured with objective results. Some people are quick to openly discuss such things, as time and opportunity appear. But for most, there never is a full disclosure, no real ability to measure or appraise “where we are” versus where others are. Consider in this vein, the life of Jacob. We read of Jacob in over ten chapters of Genesis, yet to the extent we know the stories, we carry presuppositions that make it hard for us to fully understand who he was and what struggles he had in his life. Join Mark Lanier in part one of "Jacob and Faith" as we better appreciate Jacob's life story in Scripture, his struggle with God, and the choices of life.  He had faith, yet he lived in ways and made choices that have made scholars uncomfortable for thousands of years. As we study and consider Jacob, it is instructive to understand not just his story, but also how that story compares to our lives. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/3ml6qKjniCY/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-8-jacob-and-faith-part-1/ Sun, 20 Jun 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoFaith is like racquetball in some ways, and yet, it is very different in others.

Mark Lanier Think for a moment about a heavy metal chain – the kind that holds up a heavy load. These are chains that get used to protect people from suspended items that are dangerously heavy. Which link is the most important? We come to this illustration as we discuss what Genesis teaches about Isaac. Isaac is a link in the promise of God to bring a successful resolution to the problems brought about by the sin in the garden.  However, it is surprising that Genesis spends relatively little time on Isaac independent of others in Genesis. We read of Isaac as a passive part of the story of Abraham’s obedient willingness to sacrifice him to God. We will also read of Isaac as a role player in the struggle between Jacob and Esau, but we read relatively little that focuses directly on Isaac and his direct interactions with God. However, this does not diminish the importance of Isaac as a link in the chain. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/ZdF8si4VT9s/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-7-isaac-and-links-in-a-chain/ Sun, 13 Jun 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comno Think for a moment about a heavy metal chain – the kind that holds up a heavy load.

Mark Lanier Going back into early civilization, when houses and even cities were razed, burned, or destroyed, they were not scraped off the ground for new construction. Instead, the new construction generally went on top of the old. Over time, this produced small hills for the cities and towns. When these towns were abandoned, those hills would accumulate dirt and eventually become solid hills that covered any history of ever existing as a community. As we work through the archaeology of Abraham’s time period, we begin to consider certain materials found at various ancient digs. The limited nature of the digs necessarily limits the available material. Still, there is more than enough to enrich our understanding of Abraham, as well as to confirm our belief in the historical timeliness of the stories as told in Scripture. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/ldCM0PbT0qo/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-6-abraham-archaeology-and-history-part-2/ Sun, 06 Jun 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoGoing back into early civilization, when houses and even cities were razed, burned, or destroyed, they were not scraped off the ground for new construction.

How could something so good become something so bad?    Join Mark Lanier in this lesson of "Good Gone Bad." https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-3-genesis-good-gone-bad/https://biblical-literacy.org/lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-3-genesis-good-gone-bad/audio.mp3 Lesson 2 - Genesis: Creation and Evolution - Part 4 W. Mark Lanier What are the core meanings of the Creation story in Genesis?  In Part Four of "Geneiss: Creation and Evolution" Mark Lanier explores the suppositon that Scripture is God's revelation of his message to man. Join us in our final lesson on creation and evolution as we explore three tenants.  1.  God is not a man, nor is he man’s invention.  2.  The world should never be viewed as God or confused with God.  3.  God chose to make you.  He made you for a reason.  God's purpose for you rotates around his relationship with you. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/s7GLIEB8yV8/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-2-genesis-creation-and-evolution-part-4/ Tue, 27 Apr 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoWhat are the core meanings of the Creation story in Genesis?  In Part Four of "Geneiss: Creation and Evolution" Mark Lanier explores the suppositon that Scripture is God's revelation of his message to man.

Mark Lanier Creationism or evolution – does it really matter? Christians who think so generally give two reasons for concern: (1) a belief that the integrity of the Bible is at stake if Genesis is not accorded a literal meaning; and (2) a belief that creationism means a Creator God; therefore, evolution must mean no God. In other words, some believe that without creationism, atheism must be true. Some take this further and argue the scientific truth of creationism in an effort to “prove” God exists. In Part Two we discussed the first concern over whether an evangelical, inerrantist view of Scripture mandates a view of origins as a literal 24-hour, 7-day process some 6,000 years ago. That lesson set out 4 different options for reading Scripture, all of which are viable under an evangelical/inerrantist perspective. Those views ranged from a literal 24/6 young earth to a historical, contextual reading that would be silent on the science of creation. Join Mark Lanier in Part Three of "Genesis: Creation and Evolution" as he sets aside the first issue and concentrates on the second issue: Does creationism mean God is real, and therefore, does evolution deny God’s existence? http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/0pGpAgbbZrk/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-2-genesis-creation-and-evolution-part-3/ Mon, 19 Apr 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoCreationism or evolution – does it really matter?

Mark Lanier In Part One of Genesis: Creation and Evolution, we observed the importance of integrating science and faith. As Christians, we need not run from science and common sense to some refuge we call belief. Rather, we can confidently explore not only the book of God’s words (Scripture), but also the wonders of the natural world as the book of God’s works, trusting that God is responsible for both and neither should shut out the other. In Part Two Mark Lanier continues by focusing on Genesis 1 and 2 considering different ways we might understand what is written. Our focus first considers some of the noteworthy features of the Genesis account. Then, we will consider several approaches to understanding these passages. After this section of our lesson, we will look at various scientific theories of origins noting how they integrate with views of Scripture. Finally, we will return to the Genesis text to understand the lessons presented in line with an integrated view of faith and science. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/sHQ7AFYJrFc/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-2-genesis-creation-and-evolution-part-2/ Mon, 12 Apr 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoIn Part One of Genesis: Creation and Evolution, we observed the importance of integrating science and faith.

Mark Lanier We live in the scientific age. For example, the knowledge around genetics has grown exponentially in even the last fifty years. Scientists have now sequenced the human genome. They have taken the gene structure that makes us who we are and broken it down into billions of parts in an effort to better understand “human evolution, the causation of disease, and the interplay between the environment and heredity in defining the human condition.” As a Christian, does one need to pause when reading the Science write-up of the sequencing project? Does the mention of “human evolution” run afoul of core Christian beliefs? In this lesson, Mark Lanier examine the creation account in Genesis and considers it in light of current scientific thought. What role does science have with faith? Can one believe in creation and science? What is the proper interplay, if any, between science and faith? Can one believe in evolution and God? Can one believe in evolution and creation? How literal is the Genesis creation material? And the ultimate question: what difference does it make? http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/WgXBANCpduo/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-2-genesis-creation-and-evolution-part-1/ Sun, 28 Mar 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comno We live in the scientific age.

Mark Lanier A little over seven years ago at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, we launched a Sunday School class on "Biblical Literacy" with about 85 people in attendance. Over a three-year span, we worked hard to teach material, Genesis to Revelation, which would give someone a proficiency in knowing, understanding, and applying the basic lessons of Scripture. As time went on, the lessons morphed in form, both written and oral. The class participants changed also, adding several hundred in attendance by the time the class concluded three years later. We then spent two years studying church history followed by almost two and a half years in the life and theology of Paul. With that road behind us, we have taken sight on going back through the Bible, cover to cover, much like we did with Biblical Literacy. This time, however, we intend to take a slightly different tack. Before, we were intent on finding the "core material" that would give even a novice familiarity with the Bible. This time, the effort is targeted a bit deeper. Our goal is to present and study together material that would be appropriate for study of a survey-type class on a seminary level. This does not mean that someone already has to have great knowledge in order to appreciate this study. We hope to present the material in a way where the novice can grow as well as the believer who has spent decades in study. In other words, we hope to have something for everyone. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/wS-8D_AK2Lw/ lessons/old-testament-survey/introduction-biblical-survey/ Sat, 13 Mar 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoA little over seven years ago at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, we launched a Sunday School class on "Biblical Literacy" with about 85 people in attendance.

Mark Lanier We live in an age and society where we like to know who is responsible for what we are hearing or reading. It makes a difference to us. Authorship is important. But, it was not always so. During the time of the Old Testament’s composition, the concerns over authorship were not present. They did not assess credibility the way we do. No doubt this is one reason why the authors are not always named in much of the Old Testament. Join Mark Lanier as we set out various issues important to the authorship debate on Genesis. In the process, we must recognize both our goals and our limitations. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/KuAfDyufnd8/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-1-genesis-authorship-issues-part-1/ Sat, 13 Mar 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoWe live in an age and society where we like to know who is responsible for what we are hearing or reading.

Mark Lanier We started this two part lesson with questions of authorship and credibility. We end it with affirmations, not because we can conclusively assert that Moses wrote each and every word of the Pentateuch exactly how we now read them. The reason is that the ultimate source of Scripture is God. God has worked through history and through many people to place his Holy Scriptures before people. We know through the recognition of Hebrew authority, the authority of Christ and the apostles, and the authority of the church, that we have Holy Scripture. With Scripture, we have revelation of God. Without it, we are lost with manmade ideas that bear little to no sense to truth.   http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Biblical-Literacy/~3/1t1WMSVKuDg/ lessons/old-testament-survey/lesson-1-genesis-authorship-issues-part-2/ Sat, 13 Mar 2010 00:00:00 +0000 webmaster@biblical-literacy.comnoWe started this two part lesson with questions of authorship and credibility.
