Timeline of New Testament Books.pdf

The Books of the New Testament do not appear in the historical sequence in which they had been written.  Paul's letters, for example, appear from the longest (Romans) to the shortest (Philemon).  We would often gain a better understanding of the biblical record if we considered the correct order of these books.  This chart is an attempt to provide a concise illustration and aid in this regard.

Back to Basics.pdf

Is it not ironic that when the achievements of a sports team declines, everybody seems to shout: Back to Basics!? But not so with knowledge of the biblical record - back to the basics never seems to be an option! Instead, we continue to be confronted by more and more spiritual philosophising, or by some long drawn out argumentation on whether or not to accept and adopt some religious-political confession. This article discusses the urgent need of the hour to return to biblical accuracy in our understanding.

Terug na basiese dinge.pdf

Is dit nie ironies nie, dat wanneer 'n sportspan se prestasies afneem, almal oënskynlik skreeu: Terug na die basiese dinge toe? Maar dit gebeur nie by kennis van die Bybelrekord nie - terug na die basiese dinge toe is skynbaar nooit 'n opsie nie! Ons word eerder deurgaans gekonfronteer met meer en meer geestelike filosofering of lang argumentasies om die een of ander godsdienstig-politieke belydenis te aanvaar. In hierdie artikel word die dringende noodsaaklikheid bespreek om terug te keer na absolute akkuraatheid in ons verstaan van die Bybel.
