Just as groundbreaking today as it was when it first appeared, Behold the Spirit is philosopher Alan Watts’s timeless argument for the place of mystical religion in today’s world. Drawing on his experiences as a former priest, Watts skillfully explains how the intuition of Eastern religion—Zen Buddhism, in particular—can be incorporated into the doctrines of Western Christianity, allowing people of all creeds to enjoy a deeper, more meaningful relationship with the spiritual in our present troubled times. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Christians in every age have acknowledged the importance of Pauls Epistle to the Romans. Martin Luther called it really the chief part of the New Testament, and truly the purest gospel. In addition, Samuel Taylor Coleridge regarded Romans as the most profound book in existence: others have described it as the cathedral of the Christian faith. The epistle is a Christian manifesto of freedom through Jesus Christ. It is the fullest, plainest, and grandest statement of the gospel in the New Testament. Throughout the centuries, this epistle has been recognized as perhaps the most complete theological statement regarding the Gospel of God. Paul is the great theologian who presented the gospel in theological terms which remain unmatched and which elevate the gospel message to a greater level of understanding. This epistle has five main themes: the first is the redefinition of the basis of salvation which is not based on the Law, but by grace alone and faith alone in Christ Jesus; the second is the redefinition of the people of God not according to physical birth but by spiritual birth and by faith; the third is the righteousness that is based on faith in God; the fourth is the doctrine of election; the fifth is the explanation of Christian behavior as based on Christian belief.

Was Jesus like us, or was he different in his humanity? The righteousness of God being revealed in relation to mankind’s dominion in the earthly realm is explained in pre- and post-glorification of Jesus’ Person and Work. This simple but profound revelation of Jesus reveals the love of God toward mankind as God revealed Himself in a body of flesh for our redemption, sanctification, and ultimately glorification. This is timely truth as Jesus is the light that shines more and more unto the perfect day, when we shall see Him as He is; all believers coming unto the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man. Behold the Real Jesus proclaims truths as to the semantics of Jesus Christ before and after glorification. How the Word was made flesh as the Son of God is given in detail with scriptural foundation proving who Jesus is, was, and is to come. The novice as well as the mature believer will benefit from this book. If you are tired of reading ancient theologians’ manuscripts and reading commentaries pertaining to Jesus, and you’re ready for a fresh enlightening revelation of God, then Behold the Real Jesus is for you.

Volume Iii A Divided Mormon Zion Northeastern Ohio Or Western Missouri

A DIVIDED MORMON ZION: NORTHEASTERN OHIO OR WESTERN MISSOURI? This is Volume III of an epic, multi-volume work entitled The Quest for the New Jerusalem: A Mormon Generation Saga, which combines family, Mormon, and American history, focusing upon how the authors ancestors were affected by their conversion to the Mormon religion. In Volume I, four of the authors ancestral familiesthe Carters, Hammonds, Knowltons, and Spencersand the ancestors of Mormon Church founders Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, are followed from the time they enter the Massachusetts Bay Colony in New England in the 1600s down to the early 1800s. Toward the end of Volume I, the focus is upon Joseph Smith and his family, including their move from Vermont to western New York and their religious and occult magic worldviews. Volume II takes up the narrative at about the year 1820, and involves a detailed, comprehensive, and critical look at the events in the life of Joseph Smith, Jr., during the decade in which he purportedly was visited by numerous heavenly messengers, received the golden plates, translated the writing on the plates to produce the Book of Mormon, received priesthood authority from other heavenly messengers, published the Book of Mormon, and organized the Mormon Church. There is a detailed examination of the contentious debate concerning the authenticity of the Book of Mormon and the validity of Smiths 1820s visionary experiences. The later chapters describe the movement of Church headquarters from western New York to northeastern Ohio in early 1831, Smiths interest in western Missouri as the site for his New Jerusalem/Zion, and the conversion of the authors direct ancestor Simeon Daggett Carter. Volume III begins with a detailed look at the life of Sidney Rigdon, who played a significant role in the development of the Campbellite, Reformed Baptist, Disciples of Christ Church. When he became a Mormon in late 1830, he helped bring about the conversion of hundreds of his friends in the Campbellite movement, which caused Joseph Smith Jr. in early 1831 to change the headquarters of his fledgling Mormon Church from western New York to northeastern Ohio. A remarkable fusion then took place between Mormonism, as it had been formulated initially by Smith, and the new Campbellite doctrines, practices, and organization. In the summer of 1831 Smith and Rigdon visited Jackson County, Missouri, and numerous Smith revelations formally designated it as the site for the New Jerusalem/Zion, where, immediately after the city was built, Christs Second Coming was to occur. The sites for the city and a temple were dedicated at Independence, but Smith returned to Ohio, continued to live at Kirtland, and made the decision to build the first temple there, much to the chagrin of the Mormons who had obeyed his revelations and were gathering to Missouri. This led to a serious rift between Ohio and Missouri leaders, many of the latter Smiths earliest disciples from New York. Ancestrally, the focus of this volume is upon the four Carter brothersSimeon, John S., Gideon, and Jared--who joined the Mormon Church in the 1831-32 period. While Simeon (the authors great, great grandfather) did not keep a journal, and Gideons journal is very brief, Jareds is one of the most important documents in early Mormon history, and John S.s shorter journal is also very valuable. Jared was a kind of religious fanatic--with utopian views on faith healing, the power of prayer, and prophecy--yet nevertheless he became president of the Kirtland High Council and a member of the prestigious three-man Kirtland Temple (Building) Committee. John S. became a leader of the Church in the northeastern New York/Vermont region and brought a large company of saints to Kirtland in early 1833. All four Carter brothers became important early missionaries, and four separate chapters document their activities.

Commentary On The New Testament

Verse-by-verse explanations with a literal translation Shouldn't a Bible commentary clarify what God's Word actually says? Going beyond questions of authorship, date, sources, and historicity, respected linguist and teacher Gundry offers a one-volume exposition of the New Testament that focuses on what is most useful for preaching, teaching, and individual study--what the biblical text really means. Providing interpretive observations in a "breezy" style that's easy to read and adaptable for oral use in pulpit or classroom presentations, Gundry directs his book to an evangelical audience. His crisp translation of the New Testament inserts various phrasings of passages in brackets, allowing for smooth transition from original text to alternative and contemporary readings. SAMPLE TEXT OF TRANSLATION JOHN'S PREDICTING A MORE POWERFUL BAPTIZER THAN HE (Mark 1:1-8) 1:1-3: The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, God's Son, according as it's written in Isaiah the prophet, "Behold, I'm sending my messenger before your face [= ahead of you], who'll pave your way [= the road you'll travel], [the messenger who is] the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, 'Prepare the way of the Lord. Make his paths straight.'" Pastors, Sunday school teachers, small-group leaders, and laypeople will welcome Gundry's non-technical explanations and clarifications. And Bible students at all levels will appreciate his sparkling interpretations of the NT Scriptures. A trustworthy guide for anybody wanting to delve deeper into God's Word. SAMPLE TEXT OF COMMENTS "Gospel" means "good news." Jews would associate this good news with Isaiah 52:7. Non-Jews would think of the good news of an emperor's accession to power, birthday, visit to a city, military victory, or bringing of prosperity to the empire. But Mark's good news has to do with the salvation and victory brought by Jesus over evil in all its demonic and physical forms. "The gospel of Jesus Christ" therefore means "the gospel about Jesus Christ" and refers to a proclaimed message ("the voice of one crying out"), not a book (though because books like Mark's contain that proclaimed message, the term came to refer to those books in the capitalized form of "Gospels" to distinguish them from the message, kept uncapitalized as "gospel").

"These sermons were prepared from 1920 to 1924. Professor Barth preached some of them while he was minister of the Reformed congregation in Safenwil, Canton Aargau, Switzerland; others in the Reformed Church in Goettingen while he was professor of theology in the University. Pastor Thurneysen at that time preached to the congregation in Bruggen, near St. Gall, Switzerland. The sermons were written not for special occasions but for the regular Sunday morning service, and were addressed to such men and women as one will find in any village or city church--to men and women in the struggle for life, waiting and seeking for God. "Pastor Thurneysen selected the sermons and arranged them according to a scheme that may be indicated by the words Promise, Christ, Christian Living." --from the Translator's Preface

In the 1960s, Vatican II brought renewed grace and blessing for many within the Catholic Church. For me personally, it also brought the experience of God’s healing power in the Eucharist, increasing my love of mass and personal prayer life. As a mother of young children, I was then invited by my parish priest to become a catechist; this in turn led to serving Christ as a Eucharistic minister and becoming more involved in the work of Christian Unity. What I have been shown time and again is that throughout our ordinary everyday lives, the Light of Christ never goes out. This book shares some of the insights the Mother of Jesus gives on our journey. Mary, who first followed her Son, today helps to walk in the Light of her Son, supporting and guiding as the model of faithfulness.

The Last Hours of Christ¿s Life traces the experience of Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane, where He declared, ¿My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death¿ (Mark 14:34), to the cross, where He cried out, ¿It is finished¿ (John 19:30). These scenes may be familiar to many readers, but new insights and a new appreciation for what Christ has done will be gained by a careful and prayerful reading of this book. The reader will also get a close look at the men who played a part in the last hours of Christ¿s life. In a very real sense we have all betrayed, denied, and abused Christ, for those men long ago were just like we are, and today many are repeating history. This book presents warnings against doing as these men did. May the Holy Spirit speak to your heart and lead you to ¿Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world¿ (John 1:29).

Inspired writing by a gifted new Author. This story shows us the gifts given to Simon through the carrying of the Cross with Jesus, and the gifts we can expect by carrying our daily crosses. The nail -- Mother Mary's first gift to Simon of Cyrene. had held the weight of her Son on the wooden cross. Simon had come to Jerusalem to visit friends, instead he began a life's journey to know and speak to all whoever had met this man, Jesus. Simon's repugnance for executions became a climb of compassion and deep reverence as he carried the prisoner's cross. He even seemed to be drawn to Jesus so much that heart spoke to heart. Throughout the journal we observe Simon of Cyrene's transformation into the very heart of Jesus. No where is this so evident than when Fabian, the jailer, beholds Simon of Cyrene the martyr, illumined in a pillar of blazing light. Book jacket.

"My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge" (Hosea 4:6). This book is not meant for those who refuse to step out of their box, but instead cling onto their blinders, believing that the world is exactly as they have always been taught it is. Rather, it is specially written for those who discern that things are not exactly as they seem, and are dedicated to the pursuit of truth and knowledge. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places"(Ephesians 6:12). "Behold a White Horse" is a roller coaster ride engaged in a myriad of related topics. The reader will be taken all the way back to ancient Babylon - the foundation of all secret societies, and continue on through Egypt and Rome. Other topics covered are ceremonial magick, kundalini power and evil spirits, the Talmud, Kabbalah, the apostasy of the Christian church today, alchemy, Papal Rome and the Catholic church, false prophets of the world, televangelists - wolves in sheep's clothing, & pagans in the pulpit." " Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen" (Romans 1:25) "This work is spiritually based, using many scriptures. It is the prayer of the author that through careful reading of these pages, the reader can connect the dots into a whole new level of discernment to help guard against demon traps and the many devices of Satan. Knowledge is power and the truth really does set you free."

Rabbi Isaac Leeser (1806-1868) of Philadelphia was responsible for the first Jewish translation of the Bible made for American Jewry. Leeser's considerable learning in matters biblical and rabbinic derived in major measure from the fine research then flowering in Germany, and his translation of the Bible became in a short time the standard Bible for English-speaking Jews in America. I originally put this edition together, edited it and published it as a gift to my own father, who loves this Bible version.
