    #88 Abraham Founding Father & Hero of the Faith and how we can be like him

    What makes someone great in God’s eyes?

    We’re starting into the part of the Old Testament where we talk about
    “heroes of the faith”

    What does that mean and does an ordinary person have any chance of pleasing God in that way?

    Those are some of the questions we'll talk about in the podcast today.

    #86 Critique of the Dating of Old Testament Beliefs on Life after Death and More

    #86 Critique of the Dating of Old Testament Beliefs on Life after Death and More

    Hi, I am Yvon Prehn, and this is an incredibly important podcast that I discovered I had not loaded up to this podcast channel—it’s out of order, but very important so let me explain.

    This podcast started out as added material to the podcast on Life After Death in the Old Testament.

    It is a critique of scholars who do not believe that is true, but it became much more when I realized that the timeline I was putting together to show that faulty beliefs about the views of life after death in the Old Testament were based on bad dating of resources, it applied to much more than that one lesson. I felt at the time it was incredibly important for you to understand as you study the Bible, but somehow in the last few crazy months with my undergoing major surgery 2 days before Thanksgiving, the usual holiday challenges, and Covid hovering over everything, the podcast got lost.

    As I was organizing the new year of lessons with added videos, notes, and questions for all, plus the new Resource Shop, I discovered it and found I had not posted it.

    I also realized the importance of it in that this podcast not only shows the false conclusions of the scholars who say that people in the Old Testament did not believe in life after death, but it illustrates the bigger picture of why anti-supernaturalist scholars are incorrect in their commentary about the Bible in many areas.

    Their mistakes have nothing to do with a belief or not in God or in the supernatural origin of scripture. They are simply about the dating of resources. They will use a source, for example from 70 AD to cite as a reason for a belief that scholars (secular and biblical) universally date hundreds of years earlier. I cannot ascribe motive, I do not know why they do this, but it is sloppy scholarship and misleading.

    In my infographics which I discuss in the podcast, you will see the use of 4 Ezra (dated 70 AD) as the source of Old Testament beliefs (dated by even the most secular scholars) written almost five hundred years earlier, which obviously did not happen.

    I did up infographics on the Bible805 website where you can see this for yourself. I strongly encourage you to look at these materials.

    The faith of many people has been damaged by quotes from so-called scholars who call into question the supernatural aspects of the Bible based on quoting writers from times that have nothing to do with what they claim. Fortunately, our God can be trusted and if we take the time to simply look up universally agreed-upon dates for writings and then the messages he communicated them through his prophets.

    I will mention more examples of the importance of dating various writings as we go through the Bible.

    #84 The Story of the Bible is Good News ….the good news of salvation in Jesus

    #84 The Story of the Bible is Good News ….the good news of salvation in Jesus

    I did a similar podcast previously, but it is such an important topic (nothing more important than how to find salvation in Jesus) I wanted to redo, update it, and made a video to go along with it.

    Here is the current intro to it: 

    We could all use some good news now…..

    Pandemic, crazy weather, racial injustice, and political turmoil—wherever we turn, bad news fills our world.

    But there is one place the news is good—and that’s in the good news about Jesus. Many call this good news the gospel and that’s what our lesson is all about.

    Be sure to go to https://www.Bible805.com for links to the video, notes, and more resources related to it.

    #83 Why the Bible is more like a novel than a collection of short stories—and why it matters

    #83 Why the Bible is more like a novel than a collection of short stories—and why it matters

    Our presuppositions matter

    In a past lesson, I shared how the Bible has the same structure as a novel but as I was preparing for going through the Bible in the coming year, I realized that a more detailed look at how the Bible is like a novel as opposed to a collection of short stories has important implications for how we read and apply it. In this lesson I’ll briefly explain how the short story view is the dominant, though incorrect, view today, and then why I believe it’s valid to view the Bible as similar to a novel—I think you’ll find it very interesting.

    This is a complex lesson, but extremely important for you to understand and apply. Please go to Bible805.com for links to a video, transcript, and additional resources on this topic.
