My last blog post was all the way back on November 11th, 2016. They say time flies when you’re having fun. Well, the last year and a half has been a combination of fun and hard work, and the idleness of the website has not been from lack of study, but rather the opposite.
A couple years ago, I decided to study the sixteenth century reformation, in which the fruit of this study has changed my life. I have been inspired by the brave men who gave their lives for the Gospel, and through this study, have gained an understanding of our Christian heritage that will stay with me forever.
Since then, I have written another book named,
The History of the Bible: the Journey of our Christian Heritage.
You can download a copy for free at www.insightoftheking.com/the-history-of-the-bible.html.
Or let me know if you want a paperback copy and I will send you one.
And through this study, I have taken the words of Philip Melanchthon (1497-1560) to heart when he said.
“If you truly want to study the Bible, you must do so in the original language.”
The New Testament was written in Greek. I have always been drawn to this language, for it is the speech in which God chose to endow His precious Word, but now I truly understand why He chose the Greek language to display His Glory. It is so rich and fruitful, full of His goodness and mercy. I heard a Greek professor say, “Ah Greek, it’s like the fresh dew on roses in early spring.” And I couldn’t agree more.
I have so much to share, so I thought the best way is one day at a time, or as often as I can. There is a richness and abundance that I believe needs to be restored in the hearts of Christians today. An understanding of Ephesians 1:17-19
Ephesians 1:17–19-17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.
This understanding and knowledge that Paul speaks of is so we might have a relationship with our Father, who gave us the precious blood of His Son’s life so that He might have us... a family to live with for all eternity.
