Liberty Bible Commentary
Old Time Gospel Hour Edition
This is one of the best full Bible commentaries available that will
greatly help one understand the scriptures and supercharge one's Bible
study. (one can often find a used copy in good to very good condition
on Amazon.com or Ebay for less than $10 delivered. A huge
bargain for someone that will read it..)
Note: The Liberty Bible Commentary
Old Time Gospel Hour Edition is a hard cover edition containing
both Old and New Testiments, Vol 1 & 2 together in
one book. One can also get The Liberty Bible Commentary in seperate
volumes for around $5-$10 each.
I'd like to introduce you to Sue McDaniel, a long term Missionary
with Campus Crusade for Christ International.
Sue has been working with the Jesus Film Project in Central Africa.
She travels there and facilitates translation of the Jesus Film. Please
consider contacting her and prayerfully consider her as a missionary to support. Missionaries with Campus
Crusade for Christ must raise their own support and it often becomes increasingly harder to raise support, the longer one stays on the
mission field. Their original supporters age, die or can no longer continue
& new supporter contacts are harder to make.
When Sue is in the USA, contact her at:
407-281-6439 or email@example.com
Alternately go directly to CCCI's staff member gift page
Note: Concerning the Jesus Film.
As of January 2007, Approximately 550 more film translations need to
be completed for people groups around the world numbering at least 100,000
speakers. Approximately half of these unreached groups are in Africa. Jesus said the Gospel
would be preached to the whole world and then the end would come. Please
be part of this important event of reaching the unreached of Africa with
the gospel and help Missionaries like Sue continue to work. Read more about Campus Crusade for Christ from an independent source

And Jesus said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the
kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who brings out of his
treasure things new and old." New American Standard Bible
He said to them, "Therefore every teacher of the law who has been
instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old." NIV
13:44-52 Here are four parables.
That of the treasure hid in the
field. Many slight the gospel, because they look only upon the surface
of the field. But all who search the Scriptures, so as in them to find
Christ and eternal life, Joh 5:39, will discover such treasure in this
field as makes it unspeakably valuable; they make it their own upon any
terms. Though nothing can be given as a price for this salvation, yet
much must be given up for the sake of it.
All the children of men
are busy; one would be rich, another would be honourable, another would
be learned; but most are deceived, and take up with counterfeits for
pearls. Jesus Christ is a Pearl of great price; in having him, we have
enough to make us happy here and for ever. A man may buy gold too dear,
but not this Pearl of great price. When the convinced sinner sees Christ
as the gracious Saviour, all things else become worthless to his thoughts.
The world is a vast sea, and men, in their natural state, are like
the fishes. Preaching the gospel is casting a net into this sea, to catch
something out of it, for His glory who has the sovereignty of this sea.
Hypocrites and true Christians shall be parted: miserable is the condition
of those that shall then be cast away.
A skilful, faithful minister
of the gospel, is a scribe, well versed in the things of the gospel,
and able to teach them. Christ compares him to a good householder, who
brings forth fruits of last year's growth and this year's gathering,
abundance and variety, to entertain his friends. Old experiences and
new observations, all have their use. Our place is at Christ's feet,
and we must daily learn old lessons over again, and new ones also.
