Chapter and Verse

Is there a "best practice" for reading the Bible?

Author: Anonym

I often tell people, especially those in the Bible study classes that I teach, that they should read a book of the Bible in one sitting (if short) or straight through, as they would a novel, and ignore the chapters and verses. Why is this important?

Jots and Tittles

Author: Anonym

In Matthew 5:18 (KJV) we read of Jesus telling his disciples, "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." Modern translations don't use the terms "jot" and "tittle", favouring terms such as "smallest letter" and "least stroke of a pen" (NIV). So, what do these terms really mean, and what was the point that Jesus was making?

Mike Wright's "Statement of Faith"

Author: Anonym

What do I believe? Can it be written down in any form that would do justice to my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? Indeed, probably the only statement of faith that we as Christians should make is in the Lordship of Jesus Christ! As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:2, "For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified." Still, people want to know "where I stand" when it comes to certain "beliefs" or "doctrines", and in order to satisfy this fetish for knowledge I have listed (alphabetically, by web site) the Statements of Faith from a number of my favourite web sites—the ones I would most readily recommend to seekers of truth, beyond sending them to their Bible! I have not edited the content of these documents, but have added my own comments (in green) and/or struck out items that I do not agree with in some way, shape or form. Hopefully, if you read through all of these, you will understand the basis of my faith. Please note that I do not endorse or agree with and subscribe to everything written on these sites—they all have areas where they promote what I believe to be the doctrines of men or angels above the Word of God, which is why we need to be constantly vigilant when referring to any resource outside of the Bible (Acts 17:11).
