Commonly misunderstood verses of the Bible : what they really mean by Robert E Van Voorst( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do believe that God wants you to be financially prosperous (Joshua 1:8)? Do you think that Christians must "forgive and forget" (Jeremiah 31:34)? Do you suppose that everything will work for your good (Romans 8:28), or wonder if God will ever give you more than you can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13)? If you do, best-selling author Robert Van Voorst will help you to reexamine these verses, and many others, to see what they really mean. This book treats twenty-four of the most misunderstood verses in the Bible. Each is given concise but careful treatment, including an explanation of how they are misunderstood, what their meaning is, and what this meaning says to us today. Each chapter has questions for reflection and discussion. Written especially for use in church classes and Bible study groups, but also suitable for individual reading, this book will stimulate your growth in the Christian faith and give you more confidence in understanding the Bible and applying it to your life

The death of Jesus in early Christianity by John T Carroll( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The centrality of the death of Jesus for the Christian faith can hardly be overstated, and interest in the subject is "red hot." As each generation of Christians comes to terms with its historical claims, and its theological import, it is only natural that its implications merit reexamination. Taking a studied look at the death of Jesus - from the Old Testament's perspective to that of extracanonical accounts - Carroll and Green put us in their debt for their comprehensive survey of the effects and implications of a central tenet of Christianity."--BOOK JACKET

"Building Your New Testament Greek Vocabulary, now in its third edition, provides students a user-friendly introduction to the basic vocabulary of New Testament Greek. Robert Van Voorst helps the student to move away from rote memorization toward better long-term vocabulary learning based on how Greek words are built and related to each other. He provides students with easy-to-remember English derivatives, lists the number of occurrences for each word learned, and provides lists that are easily learned in a single vocabulary-learning session. Most importantly, he organizes this book on the basis of word families and frequency. New to this edition are a comprehensive list of proper nouns and a section to help students understand aytos and similar words. Definitions of Greek words have been revised where necessary according to the new, third edition of the Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament edited by Frederick Danker."--Jacket
