Learn the Bible in 24 Hours – Hour 14 – Intro to the New Testament

This lesson’s focus was about the origins of the New Testament.  In essence, how the New Testament Scriptures came to be.  An examination of what is contained in Scripture as well as what is omitted provides valuable clues regarding the dating of certain books.

The video teaching spent a great deal of time on the problems with and corruption of the Scriptures.  I sat through much of the video time asking myself if I was using the right translation of the Bible because I know a few people who are King James Version purists.  But what I came away with was a glorious view of the Lord Who takes my breath away with His Word – even if I can’t read it in the original Greek and Hebrew to see all of the miraculous codes that authenticate it.

One of these days, I may have to check out a course in Biblical Greek and see how that goes.  In the meantime, I know that He will speak volumes through the versions I read and study.

Dr. Missler ended our study time with a brief overview of what he is going to discuss in depth next week as we study the Gospels geographically.  It promises to be fascinating.

Homework for next time:  Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
