Course Description

The Beginner’s Bible Survey is an introductory course (intended for the first "semester") on the Bible that, in an easy-to-follow format, presents all the important themes of the entire Bible and ties both Old and New Testaments into one story. There is a wealth of information here for those who are interested in where the Bible came from, the history of Israel, the beginnings of the Church, and even the Bible’s description of the end of time. It's a “fundamentals” survey, which means that anyone from high school level upwards will be able to benefit from it.

It is non-denominational, it is not sermons – it’s simply approaching the data of the Bible as a textbook, according to the way the Bible presents itself.

Included within Part Three of the Survey is:

• Where things stand at the beginning of the New Testament
• The Four Gospels and what they describe of Christ's ministry
• The Glory of God, the foundation of the Christian faith
• The work of the Spirit in the Church

• How to teach and preach the Gospel of Christ

• The skill of spiritual survival in hard times
• The book of the Revelation
• How the Old and New Testament pull together into one system
• The structure and function of the Church

Each lesson consists of an informative and engaging video in which the instructor walks you through the concepts, carefully explaining what the ideas are and what they mean for the message of the Bible. Along with the video, you can download the appropriate section of the textbook Mystery Revealed: A Beginner’s Bible Survey, the original text written by the instructor. Then each lesson provides a quiz covering the material in the video lecture, designed to help summarize and enhance your understanding of the concepts.

Your understanding of the Bible, and the God that it describes, will suddenly become fuller and richer after covering this course!

(The instructor's Part One and Part Two courses cover the Old Testament.)

Glory means "who gets the credit for something." In God's case, he is responsible for everything that happens in this world except our sin -- and yet he gets almost no credit for any of it! This video shows the meaning and importance of God's glory, the ways he has broadcast his glory to the entire world, what happens when he doesn't get glory, and what the purpose of Judgment Day really is. (Part 1)

The Jews were unique in history in that their God gave them their religion; he revealed himself to them, and created a system by which they could come into his presence and enjoy the benefits of life with the living God. But in 70 AD they lost everything that God had given them. In this lesson we see the four things that they received from their God that made life with God possible, how they lost each one, what they have been trying to do to make up for the loss, and how the entire system was lifted up to the spiritual level and given to Christians. (Part 1)

Section 3: The New Testament
17:03

The Apostles were eyewitnesses of the Christ; they were the first ones to see his glory, and it's their interpretation of the Christ that forms the foundation of the rest of the Church. In this video we learn what the three Synoptic Gospels show us about Jesus (the fulfillment of the Old Testament system, the Messiah), and the message of the Gospel of John -- that Jesus is the way into the presence of God in the Temple in Heaven.

The Holy Spirit is perhaps the least understood Person of the Trinity, simply because (as Jesus tells us) he is like the wind, known only when he passes by and moves on. Actually the Christian is filled with the Spirit upon his conversion and by that means comes into the presence of the living God, alive in Christ. This lesson examines the two functions of the Spirit, the three gifts of life that the Spirit gives to every child of God, and the fruit of the Spirit that appear in our lives as we follow him to Heaven.

When we compare what the modern church preaches as the Gospel of Christ, it doesn't resemble at all the Gospel that the Apostles preached. What we look at here is the message that they used, by examining their sermons in the book of Acts, how they pulled their sermon points from Old Testament doctrine, and then comparing that with what is preached today about Christ and why the modern church has deviated from the message.

Everyone experiences trials and troubles at some point in their lives. But not many people are ready to handle them successfully. Here we look at what it takes to be a spiritual survivor, no matter what the disaster or trial, and the specific things that the church should be training its members in before the disaster strikes.

The 20th century church has changed drastically from what the Apostolic Church was designed to be. Instead of a social gathering, church should be a spiritual hospital where people come to work on the Mission -- to be saved from our sin, and to get ready to live with God in Heaven. Jesus Christ has equipped each local congregation to address that specific Mission, and this video examines what he has given us to that end and our responsibilities and privileges involved. (Part 1)

John's book of the Revelation of Christ confuses most people, mainly because of its pervasive symbolism. Without solving the problems of what exactly the symbols refer to, we can still glean a great deal of benefit from the book by seeing it as John presents it at the beginning -- the "revelation of Jesus Christ." This lesson examines the rich treasure of information about Jesus that Revelation uncovers for our faith in him.

Section 4: How to study the Bible
09:54

For a long time people have been taking the approach that the Gospel of Christ was only partially understood in the Old Testament, starting out as a germ and gradually getting clearer until the full statement in the New Testament. But that presents problems for interpreting the Bible -- not the least of which is that the Apostles don't agree with that assessment! This lesson focuses on a new way of interpreting the Bible -- Distributed Revelation -- that uses the Old Testament stories as pieces of the picture, complete in themselves, that finally are attributed to Jesus in the New Testament. (Part 1)

He has been an occasional conference speaker for various interdenominational organizations. He also served in two churches as Pastor a total of ten years, and not only kept a full program of Bible studies going in the churches but also in the local university with college students.

It was during his first pastorate that he began writing his books. To date he has written 47 titles in the area of Biblical Studies – ranging from basic Bible Studies to college-level texts, covering a full range of subjects from book studies to surveys to specialized thematic studies. His latest work is a full-scale Biblical Theology (600 pages), a “capstone” of 40 years of working out the message of the Bible. Published under his own trade name of Ravenbrook Publishers, almost all of these titles are available on Amazon, iTunes and Kindle.

He has also recorded over 50 hours (over 150 videos) of class and presentation videos and successfully used them in teaching students at both the college and seminary level.

In addition to the Biblical Studies, he has written a half-dozen other books on astronomy, amateur radio, historical atlases, and even a children’s book! Besides writing and publishing his own materials for teaching the Bible, he is also a portrait artist, woodworker, avid motorcyclist, and radio amateur.
