The Bible is the greatest book in the universe. Much more than merely a Christian book of morals and stories, the Bible is the speaking of God to man. But how did the Word of our God, recorded so long ago, reach us in its written form?

Today's post is the first post in a special, three-part series on the history of the Bible, beginning with the transmission, translation and interpretation of this most precious book.

Read the full post at http://biblesforamerica.org/the-history-of-the-bible-1-transmission/.
Where did the Bible come from? Who wrote it, and in what languages? Knowing the Bible's history will increase our appreciation for this wonderful book.

Footnote Friday!

Acts 16:7—And when they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, yet the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them.

Footnote 1—The Spirit of Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the preceding verse are used interchangeably, revealing that the Spirit of Jesus is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a general title of the Spirit of God in the New Testament; the Spirit of Jesus is a particular expression concerning the Spirit of God and refers to the Spirit of the incarnated Savior who, as Jesus in His humanity, passed through human living and death on the cross. This indicates that in the Spirit of Jesus there is not only the divine element of God but also the human element of Jesus and the elements of His human living and His suffering of death as well. Such an all-inclusive Spirit was needed for the apostle's preaching ministry, a ministry of suffering carried out among human beings and for human beings in the human life.

God created man with a spirit, soul, and body. Have you ever wondered why?

Today on the blog, we discuss God's intention and purpose in giving us three parts.

Read the full post at http://biblesforamerica.org/the-three-parts-of-man-spirit-soul-and-body/.
Have you ever wondered how man is made? For example, what about the soul, or the spirit? God made us in a very special way so that we could fulfill His purpose. Read on to find out more.

Footnote Friday!

2 Corinthians 3:6—Who has also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant, ministers not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Footnote 4—The Spirit, the ultimate expression of the processed Triune God, who became a life-giving Spirit (1 Cor. 15:45), imparts the divine life, even God Himself, into the believers and the apostles, making them ministers of a new covenant, the covenant of life. Hence, their ministry is one constituted with the Triune God of life by His life-giving Spirit.

When it comes to the Bible, we’re familiar with words like “read” and “study.” But we might not be accustomed to the word “eat.”

In today's post we’ll discuss the necessary and enjoyable practice of eating the Word of God. Read more at biblesforamerica.org/how-to-eat-the-word-of-god/.
We’ve heard of reading the Bible and studying the Bible, but what about eating the Bible? God meant His Word to be food to us. Find out how in this post.

Eating the word is one of the greatest discoveries of my Christian life! Now I don't just read the Bible, I am fed by it.

Among the many freedoms our country guarantees, what we as believers particularly hold dear is the right to worship God and to read His Word, the Bible, freely.

As we gather together this fourth of July weekend with family and friends, it’s good to reflect on why we’re celebrating.

Read more on the blog at http://biblesforamerica.org/fourth-of-july-thanking-god-for-our-freedoms/
Each July 4th we praise the Lord for the freedoms guaranteed in this country, among which are the freedoms to worship God and to read His Word freely.

The Word is not only for us to study or learn, but even more for us to taste.

Footnote Friday!

John 6:63—It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.

Footnote 1—At this point the Spirit who gives life is brought in. After resurrection and through resurrection, the Lord Jesus, who had become flesh (1:14), became the Spirit who gives life, as is clearly mentioned in 1 Cor. 15:45. It is as the life-giving Spirit that He can be life and the life supply to us. When we receive Him as the crucified and resurrected Savior, the Spirit who gives life comes into us to impart eternal life into us. We receive the Lord Jesus, but we get the Spirit who gives life.

In Philippians 4:6, we’re given a seemingly impossible command: “In nothing be anxious.” Each of us has a long list of anxiety-inducing circumstances, so how is it possible not to be anxious in anything?

On the blog today, we take a look at the context of this verse and the way to live a life fulfilling this command.

http://biblesforamerica.org/philippians-4-6-in-nothing-be-anxious/
Christians experience anxiety just like anyone else. But in Philippians 4:6, we find a way to turn that anxiety into peace. Learn more in this post.

Footnote Friday!

1 Corinthians 15:45—So also it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul''; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.

Footnote 1—Through creation Adam became a living soul with a soulish body. Through resurrection Christ became a life-giving Spirit with a spiritual body. Adam as a living soul is natural; Christ as a life-giving Spirit is resurrected. First, in incarnation He became flesh for redemption (John 1:14, 29); then, in resurrection He became a life-giving Spirit for the imparting of life (John 10:10b). Through incarnation He had a soulish body, as Adam had; through resurrection He has a spiritual body. His soulish body has become a spiritual one through resurrection. Now He is a life-giving Spirit in resurrection, with a spiritual body, ready to be received by His believers. When we believe into Him, He enters our spirit, and we are joined to Him as the life-giving Spirit. Hence, we become one spirit with Him (6:17). Our spirit is made alive and is resurrected with Him. Eventually, our present soulish body will become a spiritual body in resurrection, just like His (vv. 52-54; Phil. 3:21).
