Most of what people think they know about angels doesn’t come from the Bible. If you think angels have wings and that a third of them rebelled with Satan before the Fall, you’re a case in point.

Readers will recall Frank is a best-selling author (Insurgence: Reclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom) who favorably reviewed my book The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible. He’s back at it again (in interview form) with respect to my latest book, Angels: What the Bible Really Says About God’s Heavenly Host. Check out the […]

I have this topic stuck in my head today in the wake of some conversations with folks about the Dead Sea Scrolls. But it could just as well be about interpreting any passage in the Hebrew Bible. I’ve grown weary of people (especially in Christian Middle Earth) appealing to rabbis to “prove” some idea they […]

Here’s a link to my interview on the True-ID Podcast. Some divine council and Christology focus.

Here’s the video of my interview with Haden Clark, host of Help Me Believe:

Some who follow my site and social media were directed to the Yesod Bible Center’s courses. Those were created by a friend, Dr. Igal German. He asked me to let you know that the start date for the course “The Appointed Times of the Lord” has been moved to February 9, this coming Saturday, at […]

I’m excited to introduce everyone to the MIQLAT Network! For a couple years now I’ve been fielding emails and questions during live events from people who love the content I produce in books and the Naked Bible Podcast about how to find others who share that interest. A lot of people out there feel isolated. […]

Readers interested in ancient North America (and who are data-driven, not conspiracy-driven or fans of bad biblical interpretation) would do well to read this old (2011) essay by Kenneth Feder, Bradley T. Lepper, Terry A. Barnhart, and Deborah A. Bolnick: Civilizations Lost and Found: Fabricating History – Part One: An Alternate Reality The essay does a […]

Many of know about FringePop321, the YouTube channel my non-profit helps to support. I’m the host. The channel was created as a response to the panoply of fringe ideas out there on the internet and YouTube (“Middle Earth”). Our goal is to upload one episode per week. There are presently over thirty episodes on the […]

I’ve been asked the following many times when I’m out speaking: Do you have small group material for people new to the content of Supernatural and Unseen Realm? How can I teach other people in my church about this content? The answer to the first is yes – What Does God Want? is the place to […]

Hat tip to Tom Horn for this one. You can read the article here ((published at Here’s a paragraph: During their session during the recent Hanukkah holiday, the Sanhedrin decided to invite Nikki Haley, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, to be the president of the Organization of 70 Nations. Their decision […]

Hat tip to Shaun , who directed me to the fact that Ben Witherington blogged on each chapter of Bart’s book back when it came out, some years ago. The first of the series is here. I post this even though it’s well after the fact because I get a lot of questions about the […]

I wanted to let you all know about this new product. The project is directed by a friend of mine, Boyd Barrett. Boyd is an experienced stage actor, and that experience shows in this production. You can follow this link to listen to a free audio sample. I did — and it’s pretty cool. From […]

This is Part 9 of a guest series by Dr. Ronn Johnson.   My last post concluded with the recommendation that the primary effect of Jesus’ death when viewed in priestly terms (that is, when we speak of Jesus dying as a sacrifice) found him making an already-righteous worshipper fit for entering sacred space. Most […]

I’ve blogged about Yesod Bible Center before. It was created by a friend, Dr. Igal German. Igal has informed me that he has revised and updates all his online courses that are slated to begin in January 2019. This is an excellent opportunity to study Scripture online. Yes, there are a good number of such […]

Well, Amazon has solved the paperback problem! You can now order What Does God Want? in paperback. I’ve been asked many times, “How do I teach your material in my church? How can someone who isn’t even ready for Supernatural get into this content? This book is the answer. What Does God Want? is specifically designed for […]

Okay, it seems everyone is posting their “Top 10 Books of 2018” list this week (I’ve seen a bunch on Twitter) so I’ll get into the act. I listen to audio books while driving around, which allows me to get through a lot of material. What follows is my recommendation list. Most academic books on […]

The most recent issue of Themelios, the academic journal of the Gospel Coalition, contains a review of Matthew’s Theological Grammar: The Father and the Son. This is an important work that argues that “προσκυνέω [proskuneō] in Matthew means worship and its use “bind[s] together the identity of Father and Son” by taking up the verb “in ways that evoke Israel’s […]

Back in March I posted a link to the video below, which was created and posted by Dr. Michael Brown. The video is about how Hebrew is not to be read / translated / interpreted according to the shapes of the original picture-script (“pictographic”) from which the Hebrew letters originated. Dr. Brown is correct. Trying […]
