The Cambridge History treats the Bible as a central document of Western civilization, a source of exegesis and of doctrine, an influence on education, on the growth of scholarship, on art and literature, as well as on the liturgy and the life of the Christian church and its members. This volume commences the study of the Bible in the West. It begins with Jerome and the Fathers and goes on to the time of Erasmus. Introductory chapters look back and rapidly survey the growth of the biblical canon in the pre-Christian period and the early church, and early Christian book-production. The central portion of the volume discusses exposition and exegesis of the Scriptures: in the hands of the Fathers, in the Medieval Schools, in the Liturgy and in the tradition of medieval Jewish scholarship. The permeation of European culture by the Scriptures is illustrated by themes in art and manuscript illustration, and by separate sections on each of the main vernacular languages, giving special attention to English. Each chapter is written by a scholar and expert on the subject, who summarizes existing knowledge and, in many cases, advances it by reporting his own research.

There are some questions you can't avoid, no matter what you believe. The Bible is held up by many as the Word of God, but to make such an assertion is to invite a greater scrutiny than we assign to other literature. Are the documents that make it up reliable sources of history? Where did they come from? What's been left out, and why? This Critical Questions Discussion Guide provides a forum for exploring this question in a group or individually, guided by the engaging insights of world-class philosophers and theologians.

How did the books of the Bible come to be recognized as Holy Scripture? After nearly nineteen centuries the canon of Scripture still remains an issue of debate. Adept in both Old and New Testament studies, F. F. Bruce brings the wisdom of a lifetime of reflection and biblical interpretation to bear in addressing the criteria of canonicity, the canon within the canon, and canonical criticism.

Cappuccino with Colossians Coffee Cup Bible Studies

$12.99

Cappuccino with Colossians is part of the Coffee Cup Bible Studies, a series of Bible studies for women in compact, workbook format that examine the "life and times" of certain Bible characters and the books of the Bible that pertain to them. Each study is to be read over a four-to-six week period, and study sections are broken down into short, daily segments designed to fit reader's busy lifestyles.

Understanding that time is precious, the Coffee Cup Bible Studies are patterned in such a convenient way that they can be read during brief windows of opportunity that allow for meditation and study (breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, etc.) Scripture is provided from the NET Bible (New English Translation), making Bible study convenient for occasions when you can't carry a Bible.

Deceptions about Jesus' identity are common today but are hardly new. First-century believers had challenges of their own from those who held to early forms of Gnosticism. Through his letter to them, the apostle Paul helps the Colossians-and consequently us-to see Christ in His true glory as firstborn, as master, as Lord, and as God.

In Cappuccino with Colossians you will encounter in the humble Son the same God who created all things and through whom all things hold together. Designed for group or individual study, Cappuccino with Colossians sets the stage for exciting, faith-stretching interaction with God's Word.

An In-Depth Look at Bible Translation-The concerns, issues, and approaches-The history-The ins and outs of the translation taskWith a reach that covers the entire globe, the Bible is the best-selling, most earnestly studied book of all time. It has been translated into well over 1,000 languages, from those of global reach such as English, French, and Arabic, to a myriad of isolated tribal tongues. Yet while most readers of the English Bible have a favorite version, few understand how the different translations came about, or why there are so many, or what determines whether a particular translation is trustworthy.Written in tribute to one of today's true translation luminaries, Dr. Ronald Youngblood, The Challenge of Bible Translation will open your eyes to the principles, the methods, the processes, and the intricacies of translating the Bible into language that communicates clearly, accurately, and powerfully to readers of many countries and cultures. This remarkable volume marshals the contributions of foremost translators and linguists. Never before has a single book shed so much light on Bible translation in so accessible a fashion. In three parts, this compendium gives scholars, students, and interested Bible readers an unprecedented grasp of:1. The Theory of Bible Translation2. The History of Bible Translation3. The Practice of Bible TranslationThe Challenge of Bible Translation will give you a new respect for the diligence, knowledge, and care required to produce a good translation. It will awaken you to the enormous cost some have paid to bring the Bible to the world. And it will deepen your understanding of and appreciation for the priceless gift of God's written Word.

Christ in the Old Testament is a handsome pamphlet that explores the lives of 13 biblical people who prefigured the Messiah. This bestselling 14-panel foldout chart examines types, parallels and illustrations of Jesus throughout the Old Testament, including men such Melchizedek, King David, Adam, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and many others. When viewed through the prism of Christ's life, death and resurrection, these Old Testament characters and their roles in Old Testament history take on new dimensions. Students will discover how their lives can also point to Christ.
Size: 8.5x 5.5 unfolds to 38 long. Fits inside most Bible covers. Christ is the key to what God had been pointing to in all the history of God's people. One way to see this is to examine parallels between Old Testament people, events, and things, and the life of Jesus in the New Testament. Christ in the Old Testament pamphlet shows how the Old Testament anticipates, reveals, promises, and foreshadows Christ, featuring types and illustrations of Jesus. The pamphlet reveals: 13 Old Testament men who foreshadowed Jesus A Scriptural time line of their placement in history Summaries of their lives and significance Charts comparing ways their life events and actions paralleled Christ or his coming Life application questions The 13 men in the Old Testament whose life foreshadowed Christ include: Adam Noah Abraham Melchizedek Joseph Moses Joshua Samuel David Elijah & Elisha Zerubbabel & Joshua Throughout the Old Testament, God provided glimpses into the character and nature of the Messiah through typologies--significant biblical characters whose actions or events symbolically correspond with or contrast to the life ofChrist.
Here are a few examples of Christ in the Old Testament: ADAM Adam's actions brought consequences to his children, causing them to inherit sin and death (Genesis 3: 16-19) Christ's actions brought consequences to God's children, causing them to inherit righteousness and life (Romans 5: 12-19, 1 Corinthians 15: 20-22, 45-49) NOAH Noah offered a sacrifice of blood (Genesis 8: 20-9: 6) Christ offered himself as a sacrifice (1 Peter 1: 18-19) MOSES Surrounding the birth of Moses, innocent children killed by Pharaoh (Exodus 1: 22) Surrounding the birth of Jesus, King Herod killed innocent children in Bethlehem (Matthew 2: 16) JOSHUA Joshua led god's people to rest in the Promised Land (Joshua 21: 44) Jesus' followers are led into rest in this new creation (Hebrews 4: 1) SAMUEL Samuel's mother Hannah was blessed by the High Priest Eli before the birth of Samuel (1 Samuel 1: 17) Mary, the mother of Jesus, was blessed by an angel before the birth of Jesus (Luke 1: 30)
