Podcast: SER 175 – Doug Woodward – Rebooting the Bible

2019.01.30 ser

For five hundred years, the Church used this Old Testament Bible. Its Apostles quoted this Bible almost 300 times when they created the books of the New Testament. We know this Bible as the Greek Septuagint (LXX).

Its Pentateuch was created about 280 B.C. in Alexandria, Egypt, only 200 years after the Hebrew Bible had been assembled by Ezra in Jerusalem. Translators added the remaining books over the next 150 years. Once finished, Greek-speaking Jews throughout the world relied on the LXX as the Hebrew language grew increasingly unfamiliar. The Church Fathers (e.g., Polycarp, Irenaeus, and Justin Martyr) quoted it extensively since they did not know Hebrew. However, after the Latin Vulgate became the accepted Bible of the Western Church during the fifth and sixth centuries, and Greek ceased as the “lingua franca” of the world, the LXX receded into the background. Only the Eastern Orthodox Church retained it as its Bible.

Podcast: SER 162 – Doug Woodward and Gary Huffman – The Revealing: Unlocking Hidden Truths on the Glorification of God’s Children

Doug-and-Gary3

The biblical doctrine of the sanctification of the believer has become lost to a vast number of people who profess faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. Sadly, many Christians think that after they are born again, the next big event is going to heaven. Thus, life for the modern American Christian becomes a quest for their best life now.

Is that really Christianity? Is that what Jesus taught? Is that the message of the Bible? The answer is a resounding NO. There is so much more for every believer in Jesus Christ to experience. We are told this throughout the pages of Scripture. For example:

Paul wrote to the Colossian believers that Jesus Christ is our hope of glory (Col. 1:27).
To the Roman believers, Paul wrote: For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us (Rom. 8:18). The writer to the Hebrews said that Jesus Christ is bringing many sons to glory (Heb. 2:10). And the Apostle Peter wrote in his 2nd epistle that believers will become partakers of the divine nature of Jesus Christ. Friends, it sure sounds to me like Christians have a spiritual inheritance of unimaginable glory. But don’t just see this within the context of the sweet by and by. Sanctification in the here and now is a process of apprehending the glory of the Father revealed to us in Jesus Christ.

Stay tuned for my conversation with authors Doug Woodward and Gary Huffman about their book “The Revealing: Unlocking Hidden Truths on the Glorification of God’s Children” next in this episode of SER.

We are not alone in the universe. Sounds like the beginning of a science fiction novel doesn’t it? In this case it is a statement of fact. The Bible presents itself as a supernatural book which from Genesis to Revelation makes the case that mankind occupies space and time dimensions but is certainly not alone.

The truth is mankind is primed to embark on a revised reality which promises to turn everything we thought we knew on its head.

SER 80 is my conversation with publisher, author, and researcher Doug Woodward.

The tug of war over power and control in the Middle East has been a see-saw affair for decades. The atrocities committed in Iran, Iraq, Israel, and Syria are stunning. Nations rising up against nations, new pacts made between former adversaries, secret deals and clandestine operations have become commonplace. How does anyone keep up with the events happening in the Middle East, much less understand them. Without the lens of biblical prophecy the myriad of daily news stories looks very much like a tangled mess of unrelated nationalistic machinations. However, with an understanding of the prophecies concerning Israel, Syria, Iran, and Russia one can see that the events unfolding were foretold of long ago.

This episode of SER is my conversation with author, researcher, and prophecy expert Doug Woodward.
