    Introductory Survey of the Old Testament

    Grace and Peace, PB! My wife and I were chatting on the phone tonight (I am currently deployed overseas) and she informed me that my mother-in-law is searching for some resources to help her get a better "cohesive" picture of the Old Testament. She is no stranger to God's word, but I do not...

    Talmud and "6 Genders"

    Hello everyone, I'm finishing up my Masters in Social Work and naturally my classes, professors, and cohort are all vocal in support of the sexual revolution (LGBT+ issues). Today, I was faced with the argument that religious (i.e. Christian) non-support of transgenderism is inconsistent...

    The Wickedness, Humiliation, Restoration and Reformation of Manasseh by C. Matthew McMahon

    The Wickedness, Humiliation, Restoration and Reformation of Manasseh by C. Matthew McMahon Manasseh ought to hold a special place to two kinds of people who read the Bible.

    Burnt Offering, was it voluntary?

    Was the burnt offering voluntary? Lev. 1:3-17 and 6:8-13 deals with the burnt offering. Lev. 1:3 says "If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before...

    What was the Old Testament way of salvation?

    We know that, in the New Testament era, salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way but, before Christ, what was the way? We definitely can't say the Jews were saved by the law. I usually go about arguing the position looking at Paul's quote of Habakkuk in Galatians...

    Prostitution Allowed in OT?

    So I'm reading this book with my wife (I won't mention it's name right now). It's written by a PCA pastor I believe. Anyway, at one point, he says that prostitution was permissible (though not encouraged) for women in the Old Testament as long as they didn't have a husband. If they had a...
