Bible Commentaries

Submitted by admin on Mon, 2006-04-17 09:10.

This commentary section includes the book of Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Acts, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 and 2 Peter, and 1, 2 and 3 John, and Jude. Other commentary material is listed in the What's New box.

The commentary material and the renderings from Hebrew and Greek into English are primarily based on the Masoretic Text (Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia), Alfred Rahlfs’ edition of the Septuagint, and the twenty-sixth edition of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece (Greek New Testament). These renderings of Hebrew and Greek and Bible translations in other languages into English serve mainly for comparison purposes. In no way are my efforts intended to slight or detract from the conscientious labors of other translators and writers whose abilities and understanding of the ancient languages are far superior to mine.

Thriving Spiritually

Submitted by admin on Sun, 2006-04-16 19:36.

A significant number of men and women whom I have met over the years from different parts of the world have been deeply hurt while associated with various religious movements. For some, their experiences have been of a nature that seems to have robbed them of every vestige of faith they once may have had. Others, within these movements or presently no longer associated with them, find themselves in a state of emotional and mental upheaval. Among those undergoing distress are exemplary men and women who sincerely want to live lives that reflect favorably on God and on his Son, the one whom they recognize as having died for them. At times, they feel very much alone, fearful, and helpless. God and his Son do know how many such men and women there are in the world and their need for a compassionate response.

The information in this section, A New Start in the Spiritual Journey, A Look at Revelation, and Jesus Christ, God’s Unique Son (based on Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), is being provided in the hope that it may serve to comfort and reassure persons who are no strangers to suffering but who desire to grow and flourish spiritually.
