Short studies on a range of topics.
The meaning of the word translated 'heaven' in the Bible is of great beauty and has been lost in translation. Firstly, translation lost the Hebrew links of the word itself, and secondly, meaning was lost in the 'myth-conceptions' now associated with the English word. ... More
Do we know the apostle John? It is hard to understand someone's letter if we don't know the person who sent it. This man, as no other, was closest mentally to our Lord, 'the disciple Jesus loved'.

Prophecy becomes much clearer once it has been fulfilled. Much of the prophecy of the Bible is fulfilled over a long time scale, but some will only be fulfilled on the eve of the establishment of the Kingdom.
