RD 101 - Are the Epistles of the Mystery Neglected?

By Jack Eberle

“Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine?  Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, there a little, there a little” (Isaiah 28:9-10).

These verses have some good advice to those wanting to learn the Scriptures.   God counsels a good practice in learning in this life: “Line upon line”. This methodical principle culminates in “The Body Epistles” for these are the last portions of Scriptures in point of time. To actually and accurately learn the Scriptures (i.e. God’s Word) one will have to “walk accurately”.  This is found in Ephesians 5:15. The word there translated “circumspectly” is akrobose = accurately.

Q.  What is the rock and what is the church mentioned in Matthew 16:18?

That rock was that which the Father had revealed unto Peter, Simon Stone (rolling stone).  The church before had been founded on the promise made to Abraham.  It was the church in the wilderness (Acts 7:38).  That rock is Christ, the Son of God.

The Gospel of John #46

By Robert E. Guenther

We are continuing our review of the Gospel of John, Chapter 8, which is continuing the debate on whether or not the rulers should believe that this man Jesus is indeed the Christ

Vs. John 8:7  So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” These men seem to be relentless in trying to trip up the Lord with questions that they believe He will not be able to answer correctly.
