Hi, I’m Yvon Prehn with Bible805, and I’d like to invite you to join me as we go through the New Testament this fall. This is part of a project to help you read through the entire Bible that we started in January.
The validity of any religion or belief system is only as secure as the documents upon which it is based. Particularly with issues as important as one’s eternal destiny and how to live a fulfilling life, it only makes sense to base your belief system on a solid foundation. As this infographic shows, the New Testament gives us the historically valid history of Jesus, his life, death, and resurrection, and the history of the founding of the Christian Church and its doctrines rests on a solid textual history.

I recently shared a new way to financially support Bible805 (you can read more about that here), but there are additional ways to support the ministry that are also greatly needed.
Obviously, the most important and first way is to support it with your prayers and secondly, also greatly needed is for you to share the ministry with others. More on both follow. [Read more…]
In response to your kind requests for how you can financially support Bible805, after a lengthy search of various donation formats and systems, and trying some that didn’t work very well, I’ve decided on Kofi, (my site is https://ko-fi.com/bible805) which provides the most support and options for you as supporters, as well as providing a safe source for donations. You can give any amount you wish; one time or on a continuing basis, through a variety of ways including credit cards, Paypal, and others. [Read more…]
How do we know what we’re told about Jesus is true?
Wasn’t the New Testament written hundreds of years after He lived?
And why did some books get included and others didn’t?
The New Testament makes some extraordinary claims including that the long-prophesied Messiah came into the world, lived, taught, died, and rose again to offer a restored relationship to God to all who believe in Him. For claims of such importance, naturally, not everyone believed them then or now, and questions like these come up:
- Wasn’t the New Testament written hundreds of years after the events recorded in them?
- In the time between the events and the recording of them, did myth and legends replace reality?
- Therefore, are the stories of the miracles, the resurrection of Jesus, just wishful thinking?
This schedule for reading the New Testament is a continuation of our year-long project of reading through the Bible in Historical, Chronological Order. Following is a video and then below it a summary of the reasons for putting the content of the New Testament into this order. Click on the image to the left to download reproducible schedules.
NEW this year!!! Daily 5-minute or less videos on the content, along with brief commentary and suggested applications of the daily readings, available at www.YouTube.com/Bible805. Be sure to subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss this daily encouragement.
Following is the explanatory video and more details follow it in the text.
I am praying about this and possibly in the next few years will seek nonprofit status.
At present, I am working so hard and many hours to simply get the content for Bible805 out on a consistent basis. I don’t have time to do all the work required for nonprofit status and I also don’t have the extra filing fees it will take to get a nonprofit entity put together. I do however need and would greatly appreciate your support now. [Read more…]
Intro note: The following was prompted by a question asked by one of the members of the Trust the Bible class I teach at my church.
I have a question in regard to ‘Purgatory’, which is this: What is the biblical justification for said place, or idea? [Read more…]
There is an infographic that goes through the changes that go with the lesson. In this lesson, we’ll go over how the changes came to be. [Read more…]
The book of Malachi begins…
“I have always loved you,” says the Lord. But you retort, “Really? How have you loved us?”
Malachi 1:2 In some ways these brief statements sum up the entire history of the Old Testament.
God again and again both shows and declares His love for His people. [Read more…]
These books were written 14‐16 years after the Jews went back to the land after their captivity. The return itself was a glorious work of God.
Once in the land, there were challenges when the surrounding people tried to stop them, but God intervened there also. The Israelites had seen God conquer and give victory in much greater problems and He took care of this situation also and they got permission from the king to continue building.
But they didn’t—even though God miraculously provided permission for them to continue building the temple, they got distracted, a lot like we do from the work God gives us to do. [Read more…]
