It comes up in almost every debate...why did Jesus say "Eloi, Eloi, Lama sabachthani"? Christians need to be ready to use this question as a glorious grounds for the proclamation of God's truth of what was happening on the cross!

Andy Stanley thinks the New Testament didn't exist for about 400 years after Christ. I beg to differ.

I do not look anything like this anymore, but here's a brief clip of Dan Wallace and I pointing out the many circular arguments of Sam Gipp and Joseph Chambers on the Ankerberg Show twelve years ago. You can still obtain this program: http://www.johnankerberg.org/catalog/BBT.html

Here I answer two of the most common questions asked in e-mail, one about critical editions of the Greek and Hebrew texts, the second about how I convert books to audio so I can listen to them while riding 8,000 miles a year on a bicycle. Here's how you do it!

A Christian plea for all to recognize the Lordship of Christ, the divine nature of the institution of marriage, and the ethical and moral dimension of how we live our lives today. Remember the words of the Messiah, the Risen Son of God: He answered, "Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate." (Matthew 19:4--6 ESV) Marriage was instituted, and hence defined, by God. This video is a collaborative effort between IV, Crown Rights Media, and Alpha and Omega Ministries.

Western culture as a whole, and the United States in particular, has had a tremendous amount of light from God, and experienced many blessings from His hand. Yet, this culture seems intent upon continuing on its path to self-destruction. A few thoughts from the Christian worldview (while we are still allowed, we would hope, to express them).

Kerrigan Skelly is a popular YouTube teacher and anti-Calvinist. But his handling of the biblical text, and in particular, his references to koine Greek, are riddled with errors. In this video I discuss some of these issues. (Update: at one point I made a few quick comments and seemingly identified an aorist participle as a present---I think, anyway, since that is what was on the screen. Tried to find the example I had put in some notes to which I was referring but didn't save the file. My fallibility proven once again! :0))

Two interesting calls from the Dividing Line of April 8th, 2010. First is Corey, who throws everything but the kitchen sink as he spins in circles throwing out every kind of non-historical silliness known to man. Then a brother calls in and demonstrates the difference between zany and spiritual.

Is 1 John 5:1 relevant to the discussion of regeneration and faith? It surely is, even if many in evangelicalism today refuse to go deep enough into the text to discover that fact. A study of 1 John 5:1, 1 John 2:29 and 1 John 4:7, in light of Calvary Chapel's Brian Brodersen's comments.

I had never heard of "Open Air Atheist" before, but now that I've had a chance to look at his YouTube channel, I sure would have had a lot more questions to ask, esp. about his claims to knowledge of Greek, textual criticism, and the like. Perhaps in the future! :-)
