The creation account is one of the most debated and discussed passages in the Bible. Scholars and theologians have wrestled with the nature of Genesis 1–2 for years. There are a variety of different ways to read and understand the creation account from ... [articles] [Products]

Most of us who study the Bible understand the importance of archaeology. It shows us glimpses of what life was like in the ancient world and provides us with important background information on the Bible. While we recognize its importance, we don’t know... [Misc.]

A Jewish proverb says, “Reading the Bible in translation is like kissing your bride through a veil.” You can still get the message, but there is something missing—you are more removed from the text. Learning Hebrew gets you closer to the text. It ma... [Misc.] [Hebrew] [last chance] [learning] [mobile ed] [Pre-Pub]

The books are long and complex. They include strange visions, speak of skeletons come to life, and frequently describe God’s wrath and judgment. Studying the Major Prophets can be intimidating to say the least. The language, imagery, and poetry of Isai... [Misc.] [last chance] [mobile ed] [old testament] [Prophets]

The Gospels are central to the Bible. Their description of the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus provide the very foundation of Christianity, and this importance is underlined by the fact that there are four separate Gospel accounts.

The life of Jesus—his ministry, death, and resurrection—lies at the very heart of Christianity. The fact that we have four different accounts of Jesus’ time on earth emphasizes its prominence.

Apologetics can be narrowly defined as “a defense of the faith.” More broadly, however, apologetics involves communicating the truth of Scripture to those around you. This will, at times, involve defending the claims of the Bible, but it may also inv...

Part of living the Christian life is discipling others. In the Great Commission, Jesus commanded his disciples to go and “make disciples” (Matt. 28:19). This is an intimidating mandate.
