 How We Got The Bible By: Dr. Paul L. Maier

As God’s written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the source of His revelation to man.

Learn about the production, collection, transmission, and preservation of these marvelous works in How We Got The Bible, featuring Dr. Paul L. Maier, the latest Men’s NetWork five-part Bible study. Listen as Dr. Maier shares his expertise and enthusiasm on the preservation and transmission of God’s Word through the centuries.

This Bible study will survey the historical development, textual transmission, and publication history of the Bible as it has come down to us through the centuries. With special emphasis on God’s divine activity through the Spirit-inspired authors of the Old and New Testaments, this study will show how the Bible is His book, His Word-revealed to man that they might know the way of salvation as revealed by the prophets and made real in the flesh through the life, death, and resurrection of God’s son, Jesus Christ.

Joining Dr. Maier in this discussion is Joel Lampe, manager of The Bible Museum in Goodyear, Arizona. Together they examine a number of printed texts, ancient manuscripts, and rare Bibles from the museum’s collection. Whether it’s a 1560 first-edition Geneva Bible, oft cited by William Shakespeare in his literary works, a centuries-old Syriac New Testament written in Arabic, or a sheepskin sliver from the book of Daniel found among the Dead Sea scrolls in Qumran, Israel-each document is part of the fascinating history of God’s written Word preserved and transmitted through the centuries.

Lost Books?
By: Rev. Gregory Seltz
(Includes subtitles in English) – Ever wondered if some texts were intentionally excluded from the Bible and why? In Lost Books? the Men’s NetWork looks at why some ancient writings failed to make the cut for inclusion, why other texts most definitely met the standard, and why others, including those “gospels” found in the last century, came up short.

Intersection of Church & State
By: Rev. Gregory Seltz
In the U.S. the relationship between church and state is an energetic one. Voices and viewpoints line up across the spectrum. Some would argue from history there should be a “wall of separation” between the two. Others maintain co-existence is not only necessary and inevitable, but can lead to positive results.Watch the video’s here
