One String is an outgrowth of The River, a ministry committed to helping people learn to read and understand the Bible for themselves.

    Not a Barter System (Luke 11:4)

    Not a Barter System (Luke 11:4)

    Turning again to the "Lord's Prayer," we read His challenging words about asking for forgiveness "for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us." Does this mean we're supposed to strike a bargain with God for forgiveness? Of course not! But what does it mean?

    Did You Hear the One About . . . . the Samaritan?

    Did You Hear the One About . . . . the Samaritan?

    Sometimes our familiarity with Jesus' teaching makes it challenging to really listen to what He is saying. Let's dip into a well-known parable and practice listening well.

    Maybe We Don't Know Better (Genesis 12)

    Don't Just Say (Luke 11:1-2)

    Don't Just Say (Luke 11:1-2)

    You've probably heard "The Lord's Prayer" before; maybe even repeated the words when you have prayed. But there might be more to what Jesus said than we realize!

Study to show yourself approved...

LOVE the way Brian Onken rightly divides the Word of God and teaches others to do the same.
