This is an historical account of the first Christian Bible, the Septuagint or LXX, meaning "Seventy." This is the Bible Jesus read. It was the only Bible in the Christian era, and it is the Holy Book that prophesied of the coming of Jesus. Jesus was named in The Law and the Prophets, as the LXX is called, as the successor of Moses and as the High Priest and Savior. The name Joshua did not not appear in the ancient Hebrew Scriptures or the Greek translation of these Scriptures. The translation of the LXX was made about 300 years before the birth of Jesus and was, in fact, totally accepted by the Israelites, Judeans, and Hebrews. Indeed, the LXX replaced the Hebrew scrolls so successfully and completely that the ancient scrolls fell into disuse. This is also the story of the men who defined Christian doctrine and ethics during the first 300 years following the crucifixion of Jesus. Their writings are quoted extensively in order that the reader may fully appreciate the depth of their dedication, devotion and intelligence. The writings of Origen, Clement of Alexandria, and Lactantius are quoted at length, and a full description of the beliefs of various Essene Sects is provided by Bishop Hippolytus (c. 170 AD), including those of the Pharisee and Sadducee. In this chapter on the Essene sects, there are quotations from those who have interpreted the Qumran Dead Sea scrolls. The relevance of these Dead Sea writings on early Christianity is made clear, especially as the writings pertain to the life of Jesus. This will give the reader a new perspective on this modern mystery. The reader will also learn of the political intrigues that plagued the Roman Empire during the 300 years before the Nicene Council. The scenes of persecution that took place in the arenas and stadiums are described by those early Christians who were eye witnesses to these events. And amid all the turmoil of the times, the Scriptures of the Septuagint and, later, of the New Testament were guarded and remained intact. The LXX was the basis of all doctrine because these early Fathers of the one Church knew that the Scriptures were Divine, and that the Word was God. The reader will also learn about today's scientists, astronomers, and archeologists who have provided indisputable evidence that the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a correct and detailed history of the Hebrews as well as a history of the Christian era. The Star of Bethlehem was over the manger in 5 BC. This is an undisputed fact. Some of the travels of the Apostle Paul have been verified as to the time of year and season. Even a Biblical scholar will be amazed to learn that the writings of Luke are shown to be true right down to the least detail. And the accuracy of the Septuagint writings are also explored by science with astounding results. There is a reason why Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt. Most importantly, however, the reader will discover why the men and women of early Christianity willingly confessed the name of Jesus under all circumstances, and it wasn't because they were uneducated peasants. Just the opposite is true. The school of Christian teaching established by the Apostle Mark and Apollos in Alexandria, Egypt, was an intellectual center that has never been excelled or repeated. Even the monks of Mount Athos in Greece can't compete with the inspired teachers of Alexandria who formed the doctrine from the sacred Scriptures of the LXX.This book is an acknowledgement of the work of these distinguished men who were intelligent, loyal, kind, and good with the reason and logic that surpassed that of a Plato or Aristotle. The reader will also learn about the earliest Bibles, including current translations of the Septuagint that delete references to the name of Jesus and change or delete prophecies that pertain to Jesus. This bookis a journey of discovery that is fundamental to a real understanding of Christianity, not just then, but now.

The editors of The Jewish Annotated New Testament show how and why Jews and Christians read many of the same Biblical texts – including passages from the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and the Psalms – differently. Exploring and explaining these diverse perspectives, they reveal more clearly Scripture’s beauty and power. Esteemed Bible scholars and teachers Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Z. Brettler take readers on a guided tour of the most popular Hebrew Bible passages quoted in the New Testament to show what the texts meant in their original contexts and then how Jews and Christians, over time, understood those same texts. Passages include the creation of the world, the role of Adam and Eve, the Suffering Servant of Isiah, the book of Jonah, and Psalm 22, whose words, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me,” Jesus quotes as he dies on the cross. Comparing various interpretations – historical, literary, and theological - of each ancient text, Levine and Brettler offer deeper understandings of the original narratives and their many afterlives. They show how the text speaks to different generations under changed circumstances, and so illuminate the Bible’s ongoing significance. By understanding the depth and variety by which these passages have been, and can be, understood, The Bible With and Without Jesus does more than enhance our religious understandings, it helps us to see the Bible as a source of inspiration for any and all readers.

What do we do with the Bible? Does this ancient, sometimes violent and contradictory text have anything to teach us today? Selective use of Scripture – by preachers and politicians alike – has been employed to justify violence, racism, misogyny, homophobia . . . the list goes on. Still, we believe the Bible has something important to say. How can we read it in a contemplative and intelligent way? In What do we do with the Bible?, Richard Rohr answers just this question. He offers a methodology of hermeneutics (interpretation) that creates a foundation for a hopeful and cosmic vision – incarnation from beginning to end of time. (He explores this vision further in The Universal Christ). In particular, Father Richard focuses on Jesus’ own method of using his Hebrew Scriptures. Jesus read between the lines to find and follow God’s mercy, inclusion, and compassionate justice. For him, everything came down to relationship and transformation.

Popular author and scholar Dr. Scott Hahn has released a collection of essays on the study and interpretation of Scripture from a Catholic perspective. Aptly titled Scripture Matters: Essays on Reading the Bible from the Heart of the Church, Dr. Hahn takes a penetrating look into the depths of Scripture, showing the reader how to uncover its many layers of meaning and inspiration. Scripture Matters serves both as an instructional guide to reading the Bible and as a delightful meditation on the grandeur of God's Word. Dr. Hahn effectively illustrates his discussion with the writings of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint Josemaría Escrivá, Cardinal Ratzinger, and other exemplary scholars of Scripture who truly speak "from the heart of the Church."

Jesus never wrote a book. Most scholars assume that information about Jesus was preserved only orally up until the writing of the Gospels, allowing ample time for the stories of Jesus to grow and diversify. Alan Millard here argues that written reports about Jesus could have been made during his lifetime and that some among his audiences and followers may very well have kept notes, first-hand documents that the Evangelists could weave into their narratives.

In this new series - BIBLE THREADS, Keys to Understanding the Bible - Arlington McRae offers us a fresh new 21st century paradigm for how we approach the Bible and understand its essential message. The Bible presents us with a series of stories and related events. The question becomes, "How are these stories and events connected? And what are we to do with them?" The answer is found in understanding "Bible Threads". A Bible thread is the link or bridge that connects the stories and books. A Bible thread is what each story and/or book has in common with other books or stories from Genesis to Revelation. This series addresses the indispensable threads to prepare you to read your Bible enthusiastically with great understanding; and to allow you the joy of discovering other threads for yourself through your own daily Bible study. This volume offers a power packed, Jesus inspired, potentially life-changing resource as it presents the Bible to us in its simplest form. Starting at the beginning, the author walks us through a new "perspective" and a new "context" for how we understand and interpret what we read. It is designed for (a) those of us new to the Bible, and (b) those who never received a comprehensive overview of the Bible that makes sense to them. In this volume, the author lays out the structure and the over all story - the big picture - of the Bible. This presentation is designed to broaden the context for how we interpret and unify the various books and stories. At the completion of this volume, you will be encouraged to read your Bible and to study it more intelligently with much more confidence and with a satisfying sense of accomplishment.

The difficulty of interpreting the Bible is felt all over today. Is the Bible still authoritative for the faith and practice of the church? If so, in what way? What practices of reading offer the most appropriate approach to understanding Scripture? The church's lack of clarity about these issues has hindered its witness and mission, causing it to speak with an uncertain voice to the challenges of our time. This important book is for a twenty-first-century church that seems to have lost the art of reading the Bible attentively and imaginatively. The Art of Reading Scripture is written by a group of eminent scholars and teachers seeking to recover the church's rich heritage of biblical interpretation in a dramatically changed cultural environment. Asking how best to read the Bible in a postmodern context, the contributors together affirm up front "Nine Theses" that provide substantial guidance for the church. The essays and sermons that follow both amplify and model the approach to Scripture outlined in the Nine Theses. Lucidly conceived, carefully written, and shimmering with fresh insights, The Art of Reading Scripture proposes a far-reaching revolution in how the Bible is taught in theological seminaries and calls pastors and teachers in the church to rethink their practices of using the Bible.

This second edition of Bauckham's wonderful work is essential reading for understanding the relationship between the Bible and politics. The enduring value of The Bible in Politics is that it teaches the reader how to read the Bible politically and to gain an understanding of the social relevance of the Bible that is more disciplined, more informed, more imaginative, and more politically fruitful than many interpreters--past and present--have achieved.
