“Your Word is a Lamp to my feet and a Light to my path.”
Hi! Welcome to the menu of my most important posts on the Bible. Please start by reading “Jesus Christ and the Word of God.” In it I explain why I believe the Bible is the God’s Word, and how from what Jesus said, Christians gain our doctrine of the nature and authority of Scripture.
In 2011 I started the year-long series of post, “Read the Bible in 2011.” That page will explain the series. If you move your cursor down to that page, you’ll see each quarter of 2011 listed, and on those pages you’ll find links to the daily readings and my reflections on those Bible passages.
I also have three ongoing foundational series on the Bible:
I will add to these series from time to time. If you’re looking for something else, use the search box for specific words or look through the dropdown Categories list. If you’re on a computer they’re on the right side of the page. If you’re using your phone, you’ll find them below the current posts.
Through the light of His Word, may you meet and love Jesus, the Light of the World!
May God richly bless you!

“The bar graph that runs along the bottom represents all of the chapters in the Bible. Books alternate in color between white and light gray. The length of each bar denotes the number of verses in the chapter. Each of the 63,779 cross references found in the Bible is depicted by a single arc – the color corresponds to the distance between the two chapters, creating a rainbow-like effect.”
