The basics. Learn in this comprehensive Bible presentation more about the origin, structure and overall message of the Bible. What are recommended Bible reading techniques and what are some key teachings? Which Bible translations should I rather not choose?
T he Greek Old Testament
Discover the Bible Jesus read and quoted from. Our Hebrew Old Testament (Masoretic) texts are 99% identical with the Greek Old Testament (Septuagint) texts, but suffered some retroactive, punctual and decisive manipulations - e.g. the watering down of prophecies about Jesus Christ being the Messiah, and the falsification of 64% of the begetting ages in the genealogies that form the sole basis for the date of creation.
I compared the Greek texts (without the non-canonical Apocrypha that were added later; see below) with the Hebrew texts of our common Bibles, and am able to clearly prove the general superiority of the Greek Old Testament. Are we able to go back to the truth?
The word of God is inspired, but is the canon of 49 books (modern count of 66 books) also inspired? Find out what historians and scholars such as Athanasius, Eusebius, Hilary, Josephus or Melito stated about the precise canon of the Bible and learn why non-canonical books had been rightfully rejected.
Ecclesiastical Books (Apocrypha)
The first unbiased timeline that reveals the unbalanced 'truths' taught in different denominations. The Roman Catholic Church, its third doctor and patriarch of Calvinism (Augustine), and the creators of the codices were responsible for its inclusion (7 books) in the 4th c. AD, while the late reformers included for the first time the full Apocrypha (15 books) into our Bibles, having clouded this evil by creating a separate section for those books and giving them the very same weight as the 4 books excluded by Luther (Hebrews, James, Jude and Revelation). God will judge all those who diluted His Word with other texts. May we never go back to include those works of human inspiration in between God's 'two book covers' of His Word.
The timeline also clearly reveals that the original Septuagint, which is often used as 'scape goat' for the inclusion of the Apocrypha, did not include for at least 400 years the 'Septuaginta Plus', until many churches used-, and the first codices added those books.
God's Word is sufficient. It is therefore important to be equipped against the propagation of 'secret knowledge' humans are traditionally keen of. This study will touch the basics on non-canonical (-uninspired-) writings, such as the first century letters of the Apostolic Fathers (good to read), the popular Dead Sea Scrolls (with strong precaution - biblical texts mixed with sectarian texts), the Ecclesiastical Books / Apocrypha (with strong precaution) and Pseudepigrapha (heretical teachings).
The books of Enoch and Jubilees - legit as many Christians claim? Clearly not - as I can prove through the unfulfilled Prophecy Of The 10 weeks (Enoch) and the corrupted timeline (Jubilees). Even Jews reject those books and consider them as Apocrypha.
