The KJV had been the standard English version of the Bible for over 200 years, when the Church of England decided that a revision was needed. The committee of...

Archaeology, the Resurrection, and Faith

/
Here we go again. A new sensational archaeological announcement that proves that there were first century Jews who embraced Christ and the hope of the resurrection!

/
Posted By
I received a phone call from a pastor in Florida a few weeks back who was going to be speaking in his church from the book of Ephesians. He wanted my opinion as to what I considered to be the best commentary on the epistle. I quickly told him to look at Harold Hoehner’s Ephesians,...
