This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few weeks ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is Ephesians 2:4. Here’s my translation:

“ELABORATION 3 σπουδάζοντες τηρεῖν τὴν ἑνότητα τοῦ πνεύματος ἐν τῷ συνδέσμῳ
Being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bondage of

τῆς εἰρήνης”

Here’s some observation:

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

Chapter 7

Chapter 8

Chapter 9

The questions in this post will be for chapter 10 and conclusion of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.

This year I tried to put out more posts resolving Bible contradictions concerning the final week of Christ through His Ascension to add to the list I put out last year.  It takes some time on my part to go through them to provide exegetically sound refutations; Lord willing I will add more to this lists next year.  See my post I wrote on why refuting Bible Contradictions Takes Time.  As of Resurrection Sunday 2018 I have responded to 22 alleged Bible contradictions that took place during the final week of Jesus’ life up to His Ascension.  These posts are arranged below roughly in chronological order with additions added after last Easter labeled “NEW” in red:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What did Judas do with the silver?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

He bought a field.

“Now this man acquired a field with the price of his wickedness, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his intestines gushed out.” (Acts 1:18)

He threw it on the ground.

“And he threw the pieces of silver into the temple sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself.”” (Matthew 27:5)


(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

I have been caught up so busy with my church ministry but I also need to be finishing up my courses to teach theology next month in an undisclosed country that is security sensitive.  Of course during the weeks I’m overseas there will be guest posts on here given my access to the internet will be limited.

Pray for my preparation.  This include not only studying for and actually making my lecture outlines but also making power point presentations.  I also need to get it done sooner too to have it sent out to be translated into the native language.  Due to language issues the text books I would like to use is limited so I also need to read one of the books for assigned reading sometime as well.

Pray for my strength and wisdom to finish everything.  Thank you so much for those who are praying!

Two weeks ago we wrapped up our 5 part Home School Lesson series on God’s sea creatures for 4-5 year olds!  Next week on Wednesday we will post a new series on earth science.

I thought I also posted these lessons in a single post as a helpful table of Contents.

I know our blog has been going over some serious heavy stuff concerning Bible difficulties, alleged contradictions and Messianic prophecies the last few days.  Here’s a review of a Children’s book Bible.

David R. Helm. The Big Picture Story Bible.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 17th 2004.  456 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is a children’s picture Bible published by Crossway.  The publisher stated that this book is for ages four and up but my three year old also enjoyed it too when I read it to all my kids.  It is a massive book, coming in at 456 pages but don’t worry as it is still a children’s book and my family went through this and found that the book has a good pace for our evening reading.  So the 456 pages is good if you are looking for something to go over with children ages three to six year old in terms of regular daily read.  I love how there are many pictures in the book.  Also while this book is big coming in with a dimension of 9 x 1.1 x 9 inches and weighing 3.6 pounds nevertheless I enjoyed it size so the kids can enjoy the book more especially if you are reading to multiple kids at once.
