Most churches conduct Bible studies once a week. Some are just sermons, and some are Bible
readings Questions and answers. Usually the pastor will give his idea on a passage or what he
has learned in a seminary.     

The Problem is, that seminaries have their own Bible brand that they use. The King James Bible
was first printed in 1611 A.D and is considered the most accurate of all the translations, for over
three hundred years. King James first commissioned the translation in 1604.

The manuscripts in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek were Translated into English by the top linguists
in Cambridge, Westminster, and Oxford universities, taking almost eight Years, working six days a
week.

With the Bible being the top selling book in the world. I think that editors, of new translations,  are
more anxious to get their Bible brand out. Would they want to go to that much time and trouble for
accuracy? It seems that their almighty dollar is ahead of the almighty Creator.
   
It’s been noted, that many of the modern Bibles of today are corrupt, some leave out verses and
add things. They vary  from one to another and sometimes can leave the reader confused. The
New King James has also modern language if you want. It is best to check back and forth with the
original on occasion.

Do you study the Bible or just read it?  Is this a dichotomy? Is reading the Bible studying it? Bible
students would say no. Then what constitutes study?

Purchasing The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, is the most trusted of the
concordances, and is only compatible with the King James Bible. Halley’s Bible Hand Book is
great for history and Bible facts. Log on to The Bible Encyclopedia on the internet and you are
ready.

Theologians that continuously study the Bible say it is ninety eight percent correct, meaning
certain words. Like in the K.J.B, terrible means fear or awesome. In all of the Bibles, hell’s real
meaning is the grave, and they use it as the Lake of Fire. God in Genesis means Elohim, which is
plural. There are many more tid-bits like those.

Why even bother looking up these words in Strong’s Concordance when my Pastor will tell me
during the sermon? Most pastors after they have completed seminary, feel they have learned all
they needed, and then were ordained.

Have you ever learned from the pulpit that there are four hells in the Bible. Hades, Tartaroo,
Gehena, and Sheol? They are all translated as hell, and not one mentions fire.

The mainstream church teaches that the 7th day Sabbath has been done away with. Have you
ever heard from the pulpit that the Apostle Paul preached on the Sabbath over eighty times in
Acts? He preached only once on Sunday, when the Apostles came together to eat. Have you ever
heard of any Bible authority that changed the day?

Dear friends, if you have read the Bible, you have come across (Acts 17: 10,11). The Bereans
were more noble than those in Thessalonica, they received the Word with all readiness of mind,
and searched the scriptures daily whether those things were so.

“Study to show yourself APPROVED unto Elohim, a workman that needs not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15) K.J.V. Click on the lessons in Honor Messiah
and learn the truth and not the teachings of men’s traditions, doctrines and their commandments.

There are eighteen topics on the top index that you can click on and study. People don't realize
how exciting Bible stories are, until they delve into them with gusto. I have just installed a new
page that is very controversial. It is titled " The Secrets of the Trinity" Theologians have for
centuries, tried to figure out the trinity. Mainly no one can understand how there can be three
persons in one body. It is all about that little word, one. At Honor Messiah page click on Trinity.

Bible study is an interesting subject in it self. There is a new study interest with the younger set,&
many want to learn. First there is your own books and study guides. There are C.Ds that you can
just listen to the material you want to learn from. Then there is the computer that you can learn any
thing from. In studying the Bible I would recommend Strong's Bible Concordance and Halley's
Bible Handbook to start. Then you are off to the races.

After you have read the article, Return to Honor Messiah.
