Bible Study: The Book of the Revelation – LESSON 12

Calvary Bible Church Bible Study

The Book of the Revelation

 

LESSON 12 – The False Prophet and the Mark

Chapter 13:11-18   The Beast from the Earth.

The first beast comes from the sea, symbolic of the nations in turmoil; the second has his origin from the earth (or land), indicating one of two things (depending on the interpretation that is given to “earth” or “land”).  If the term is correctly translated as “earth”, then it would indicate that this second beast comes from something more stable or solid than the “sea” of the first beast.  This could easily indicate that the second beast will arise from the RELIGIONS of the world, since religion has lasted longer than any nation, kingdom, or political system in history.  On the other hand, if the word is translated as “land”, it would be a reference to the Land of Israel, which would indicate that he is of Jewish biological descent.  Thus, he would arise from the Land of Promise and will falsely claim to be of the nation of promise and the promised Messiah.

Bible Study: The Holy Spirit – The Person of the Holy Spirit – Lesson #2

Lesson 2:   The PERSON of the Holy Spirit    

The Holy Spirit is seemingly the least understood of the members of the Trinity.  Although many churches in the modern era TALK about the Spirit, the vast majority of them focus on the “power” and the “gifts”, rather than the Person and Ministry of the Spirit.  And even then, they produce a lot of unbiblical information on the “power” and “gifts” that leads to a very unbalanced understanding of what Christianity is really all about.

Leviticus Bible Study – Lesson #7

Lesson 7:  Leviticus 16              

THE DAY OF ATONEMENT

This chapter holds the greatest spiritual lesson for us. The subjects treated so far in Leviticus have been offerings, priests, and sin. None of these have dealt finally and completely with sin. We now come to that which more completely than any other deals with the subject of sin. It at least points more specifically and adequately to the work of Christ in redemption. It is a shadow of His redemptive work. Continue Reading Here

Sermon Audio: What Is MOST Important?

Scripture Reference:  Mark 12:28-34

  28   And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
  29   And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
  30   And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
  31   And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
  32   And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
  33   And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
  34   And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Women Of The Bible: Lesson #19 The Rabbinic View Of Women In the NT

The “Rabbinic” View of Women in the New Testament Era, and the Contrast with Jesus’ Interactions with them

The rabbis of Jesus’ day had little use for women. Their attitude, reflected in the sayings and rulings of the sages recorded during the two centuries after Christ, seem especially strange today. Take for example the dictum of Yose b. Yohanan of Jerusalem, “Talk not much with womankind” (mAbot 1.5). Rabbinic writings contain many comments on this pronouncement. The Mishna (IV, 493) notes, “They said this of a man’s own wife; how much more of his fellow’s wife,” while the Talmud says, “It was taught: Do not speak excessively with a woman lest this ultimately lead you to adultery” (bNed.201).
