Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 8, 2022

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13, New American Standard Bible – 1995

How the English Bible Came to Be

Dean Tucker has our lesson again this week, completing his series on “How the English Bible Came to Be”. Dean is a member of the BYKOTA Sunday School class and was a professor at Oglethorpe. He has been covering the subjects: Christian beliefs about the creation of the Bible, the case for the Bible as the inspired Word of God,

In what language(s) was the Bible originally written? When was the Bible written? Who wrote the Bible?, Why was the Bible written? How was the Bible written and preserved throughout the early stages? How was it determined what to include or exclude in the Bible?, How were the books of the Bible named and ordered?, The bloody, violent and murderous path to our present day English Bible, and How and why are there so many translations and versions of the Bible? His lessons are built upon the following words of Scripture: Mark 13:31, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21,1 Thessalonians 2:13
