Studying the Kings of the Bible

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

I am going
 through the Old Testament very slowly with my 8-year-old. We have been using
 The Bible Story Library Volume II edited by Turner Hodges. We also are using The Greenleaf Guide to Old Testament History. I noticed that Greenleaf covers

Translating Romans 1:21

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. I have a question about translating Romans 1:21. The KJV, Holman Bible, NKJV, NIV all say, “… but became vain in their imaginations.” Calvin’s Institutes and Matthew […]

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

Dear Trivium Pursuit, Once I have learned enough Koine Greek so that I can begin reading the New Testament in Greek, what bible/translation do you recommend? For instance, in English there is KJV, ESV, etc. Is that true in the world today for Greek Bibles? I have heard of the Septuagint. My goal is to […]

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Hi Laurie, I was wondering if you could give me your recommendation for a more focused Bible time in the morning with my kids (ages 10, 7, 2). My usual thing is to just read a chapter (Proverbs right now) and perhaps discuss it or ask the kids if they have any questions…but it seems […]
