S-Grace-Misunderstood-Word Download: Grace - The Most Misunderstood Word in the Bible
$3.95 Be the first one to write a review

David Bercot. Many Christians have a completely wrong concept of Christianity because they misunderstand one single word: grace. Most of us have been told that grace means God's "unmerited favor" and that it stands in contrast to human effort or reward. But how can we know what a particular word mean in the days of Jesus and the apostles.?

The Greek word that is translated as "grace" is charis. Bercot argues that the only way we can know what charis meant in ancient times is to go the writings of that period. For New Testament words, the three most valuable ancients sources we have are (1) the Septuagint, (2) the New Testament, and (3) the early Christian writings. These sources reveal that charis was an everyday word, meaning goodwill or favor. This goodwill might by totally undeserved, or it might be extended because of something commendable on the part of the recipient.

Beyond any doubt, salvation is a gift. But it is a gift conditioned on our maintaining an obedient love-faith relationship with Christ. This message could change of your whole concept of Christianity!

David Bercot. When most Protestants think of great Christian leaders, they usually don't think of the 12 apostles. However, they were some of the greatest Christians who have ever lived. One of the things that made them great was their willingness to fade into the background and let others - like Paul - receive more glory. Meanwhile, they were quietly going about planting Christ's church throughout the world. When most of us think of the 12 apostles, we thing of them bickering over who would be the greatest. But when the time came, that is very thing they didn't do. The twelve worked together as a perfect team, without any rivalry among them. They had no desire to leave monuments, biographies, or accounts of their ministries.

When called upon to leave written records of their time with Jesus, they left accounts that portrayed their foolishness, but little of their wisdom. They were content to be remembered for their mistakes and failures. Because of their humble, quiet leadership, they were able to leave a strong, united Church at the time they died, instead of 12 divided, bickering groups of churches. That's what true greatness looks like!

David Bercot. When we pick up our Bibles, we assume we are reading the Word of God. However, every translation is also an interpretation. That's because the text - Greek or Hebrew - can often be translated in different ways. Yet, the meaning of a verse can be very different, depending on how it is translated. Bercot gives examples from the New Testament of how translators have made arbitrary decisions and have often unjustifiable added words to Scripture to fit their theology.

D. Bercot.When you read the New Testament, are you receiving the meaning the apostles intended? Bible translators can completely change the meaning of a given verse—or of a whole chapter—simply by deciding to capitalize a word or not. (The New Testament was written in all capital letters.) This is not some small, trifling matter. It affects the entire meaning of the Gospel. more.

The last update was made in 1769 under the authority of Oxford University. But then something odd happened. ... more.

Jesus and His apostles almost always quoted from the LXX when they quoted the O.T. The LXX was the O.T. of the early church. However, the Roman Catholic Church eventually switched from the LXX to the Masoretic Text (MT), and the Reformers followed suit. . . more.

S-Filthy-Rags-set.jpg Download: Does God View Our Righteousness as Filthy Rags? Disc 1
$3.95 Be the first one to write a review

Practically all Christians who have had any contact with Evangelical Protestantism know by memory Isa. 64:6: “We are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags.” But is this really how God views the righteous acts of His people, or of mankind in general? Or, is this simply another case of a theologian (Martin Luther) taking a verse out of context?

After all, neither Jesus nor any of the New Testament writers ever quoted Isa. 64:6. Bercot presents a Scriptural and historical analysis of this passage that will undoubtedly give you a fuller understanding of this verse.

The second CD in this set is a computer disc (CD-ROM), playable in any Windows computer, that sets forth the extensive list of Scripture texts that shed light on this whole issue.

David Bercot. Many Christian books and commentators today portray Jesus as the first feminist. These commentators typically point to the Mishnah to argue that Jesus’ treatment of women was nothing short of revolutionary in His day. However, Bercot demonstrates how feminist commentators have fabricated history in an attempt to show that Jesus overthrew the very order of headship that He—as our Creator—instituted.

As most of our readers know, we do not recommend the use of modern commentaries. That’s because the information in them is so often inaccurate and untruthful. At the same time, we recognize that many New Testament passages are difficult for the modern reader to understand. We don’t speak the same language, we live in a very different culture, and so many changes have come into the church during the past 2000 years. It certainly would be handy to know how the early Christians understood various New Testament passages. more.

D. Bercot. The greatest commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” (Matt. 22:37). Many Bible-believing Christians love God with all their hearts, but not with all their minds. In fact, they don’t even know what critical thinking is. As a result of their shallow thinking, they wrongfully condemn other Christians, and they often bring reproach on the name of Christ because of their wrong predictions and foolish statements. In this CD, Bercot focuses on three areas:

1.   Developing critical thinking skills 2.   Learning how to read a document—particularly the Bible 3.   How to properly do research on biblical and spiritual topics

S-Apostles-Bible-Set.jpg Download: CD Set: Why Don't We Use the Same Bible as the Apostles?
$7.90 Be the first one to write a review

When you look up Old Testament verses quoted by New Testament writers, you have probably noticed that they don't read the same in your Old Testament as they do in your New Testament. Have you ever wondered why? The reason is that, most of the time, Jesus and His apostles quoted from the Septuagint, not from the Masoretic Text. Yet, today, almost all English Bibles use the Masoretic text for the Old Testament, not the Septuagint.

So, in this series of messages, Bercot asks the logical question: Why don't we use the same Bible as Jesus and the apostles? In the course of this message, you will learn about:

• The numerous New Testament passages that match the Septuagint, but not the Masoretic Text.
• The many Old Testament passages that are contradictory in the Masoretic Text-but not in the Septuagint
• How the New Testament writers used the vocabulary and spiritual concepts of the Septuagint
• Why the early church insisted on using the Septuagint as their Old Testament
• When and how the Roman Catholic Church dropped the Septuagint and adopted the Masoretic Text in its place-a tradition later followed by the Reformers
