The Bible Oasis

Like many pastors of churches throughout the country, one of my genuine joys has been leading Bible studies.á I intend for this web site to reflect the result of studies with laity that began in 1979 and continue to the present day.á Part of that joy is interacting with current scholarship concerning the Bible.á  

I believe that the Bible has a message for us today.  Too often, we refer to the Bible as a living document, by which we mean we get to make the Bible mean anything we want it to mean.  When the message of the Bible is inconvenient to us, when its message goes against what we believe or what we want to do, we often try to justify ourselves.  I hope these pages help us to better understand what the Bible says to us today.á The following table contains links to those books of the bible for which I have typed up my notes thus far.á Those books not underlined do not yet have links.á Take your time, reflect, pray, and enjoy.á Send me your input and reflections. 

I have done many studies concerning the Synoptic Gospels.á I will present some of my conclusions in a separate paper.
