Good News According To William Tyndale

April 15, 2009

tyndale William Tyndale wrote the first modern English Bible. Tyndale introduced words like “passover” and was the first to write the word “Jesus”, as the letter “J” was new to the English language. Jesus’ original Hebrew name is Yeshua.

After King Henry VIII and the church killed Tyndale for enabling everyday people to read the Bible themselves, they created the the King James version of the Bible which was a sanitized version of Tyndale’s Bible.

Tyndale’s Bible is credited with being the first English translation to come directly from Hebrew and Greek texts. Furthermore it was the first English biblical translation that was mass produced as a result of new advances in the art of printing. The term Tyndale’s Bible is not strictly correct, because Tyndale never published a complete Bible. Prior to his death Tyndale had only finished translating the entire New Testament and roughly half of the Old Testament.[1] Of the latter, the Pentateuch, Jonah and a revised version of the book of Genesis were published during his lifetime. His other Old Testament works were first used in the creation of the Matthew Bible and also heavily influenced every major English translation of the Bible that followed

Good News According to Evangelical Protestants

March 28, 2009

Evangelicals or Protestants are Christians who trace their spiritual roots back to Martin Luther, William Tyndale, John Wycliffe and other key leaders. This spiritual movement was a reformation of the Catholic church.

hillsong-worship

I like most Protestant Evangelicals. Although Martin Luther’s views on Jews were praised by Hitler which is very scary and still affects the church today in practices that are simply not Biblical, such as easter eggs, Santa claus and support for war.

 hitler and luther

Even the great Protestant Reformer Martin Luther, who is known for slapping the hand of Jews (see The Jews and their Lies) once said:

“The Hebrew language is the best language of all … If I were younger I would want to learn this language, because no one can really understand the Scriptures without it. For although the New Testament is written in Greek, it is full of Hebraisms and Hebrew expressions. It has therefore been aptly said that the Hebrews drink from the spring, the Greeks from the stream that flows from it, and the Latin’s from a downstream puddle.”

Rankin Wilbourne

>pastor-rankin-wilbourne
Rankin Wilbourne is one of America’s best preachers today. Given the historical disasters and current political realities, its really too bad Pacific Crossroads Church, the church he leads, has expressed negativity and now deafening silence regarding God’s people Israel and the Jewish people. Presbyterian theology needs a reformation regarding its views towards Israel.

Ironically, Rankin has preached one of the best messages I’ve ever heard on forgiveness.

Powers and Principalities was brilliant. (“Christus Victus”, loved the ending about MLK) and many more.

Check out some brilliant sermons here.

Marshall Brown – A Day in the Life of Jesus Luke 431-34, great message on practical healing and salvation

Marshall Brown – A Day in the Life of Jesus Luke 431-34 Sermon11.15.09

Excellent sermon on How To Read The Bible by Rankin Wilbourne (except the comments on Israel and its blessings are misguided)

How To Read The Bible – Rankin Wilbourne 1 Samuel 16 1-13 Sermon02.28.10

On POWER

Rankin Wilbourne on David and Bathsheba from 2 Samuel 11

Why do we disappoint ourselves and fail to meet our own expectations and Why are we constantly stuck in bad patterns –

commentary on LOST, the show, people trying to forget their

On war and the holocaust and abuses of power

Importance of term limits and checks on power
Why do we disappoint Rankin Wilbourne on David and Bathsheba from 2 Samuel 11

On power and secret unconfessed sins like pornography, (…then Amnon hated her with very great hatred, so that the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her…2 Samuel 13:15) and though grace abounds we must fear God because sin still has consequences in redemption. One of my favorite stories in the Bible is that of the Prodigal/Lost sons and the connection with Absalom (father of peace) is fascinating!

Rankin Wilbourne on David and Nathan 2 Samuel 12 Sermon05.30.10

Great sermon on sabbath and rest.

LORD of the Sabbath by Marshall Brown on Luke chapters 6 and 13 Sermon07.18.10.mp3

Good sermon on salvation and our gnashing of teeth in hell. We are like animals. (However, their is an error in the sermon against the Jewish people.)

On the Road to Jerusalem A Greater Salvation Marshall Brown Luke 13 verses 22 to 30

> “first century Palestenian jew” — did not think much about it.  I guess that is kinda repetitive.  Should have just said “first century Jew” I  guess??

Yes, “first century Jew” would be historically accurate. Sure, for most listeners it doesn’t really matter. However, for people who are familiar the middle east, the term “first century Palestenian jew” possibly discredits the speaker as inaccurate or biased.  Its not that its repetitive, its an accurate term AFTER Bible times and up until 1948.

Politically, this is a very sensitive issue because as I attached earlier the Palestinian government teaches that Jesus is Palestinian and Muslim! They are trying to discredit anyone who believes in the Bible, both Christian and Jew.  Example from the PA and Muslim Wakf – Palestinian Authority’s Chief Justice Sheik Taysir Tamimi: “No Jewish Temples ever existed, and references to Jersualem in Jewish, Byzantine and Roman writings were all forgeries.”
