A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ

In the fullness of time the Christian religion sprang out of Judaism;
as a fact, indeed, of divine revelation, but also inseparably joined by innumerable threads with the previous thousand years of Israel’s history.
No incident in the gospel story, no word in the preaching of Jesus Christ, is intelligible apart from its setting in Jewish history, and without a clear understanding of that world of thought-distinction of the Jewish people.

A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ
American Standard Version

The American Standard Version (ASV), also known as the Standard American Edition, Revised Version, is a Bible translation into English that was completed in 1901 with the publication of the revision of the Old Testament; the revised New Testament had been released in 1900. It was originally known by its full name, but soon came to have alternative names, such as the American Standard Revision, American Revised Version, the American Standard Revised Bible, and the American Standard Edition. By the time its copyright was renewed in 1929, it had happened to be known by its present name, the American Standard Version. Because of its prominence in seminaries, it was sometimes simply called the “Standard Bible” in the United States.

Scofield Reference Bible Notes

The Scofield Reference Bible is an extensively distributed study Bible revised and annotated by the American Bible scholar Cyrus I. Scofield, which popularized dispensationalism at the start point of the 20th century. Published by Oxford University Press and comprising the full content of the traditional, Protestant King James Version, it first came out in 1909 and was revised by the author in 1917.

The Scofield Reference Bible promoted dispensationalism, the belief that between creation and the final judgment there would be seven distinct eras of God’s dealing with man and that these eras are a scheme for incorporating the word of the Bible. Widely through the sway of Scofield’s notes, many fundamentalist Christians in the United States adopted a dispensational theology. Scofield’s notes on the Book of Revelation are a principal source for the various timetables, judgments, and plagues elaborated on by famous religious writers such as Hal Lindsey, Edgar C. Whisenant, and Tim LaHaye; and in part because of the success of the Scofield Reference Bible, twentieth-century American fundamentalists placed higher stress on eschatological belief.

The Jerusalem Bible

The Jerusalem Bible is an English translation of the Bible published in 1966 by Darton, Todd and Longman. This Catholic Bible, it consists of 73 books: the 39 books shared with the Hebrew Bible, along with the seven deuterocanonical books as the Old Testament, and the 27 books shared by all Christians as the New Testament. It also contains copious footnotes and introductions.

The Jerusalem Bible is the basis of the lectionary for Mass used in Catholic worship throughout England, Wales, and the majority of the English-speaking field outside the United States and Canada, though the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has approved other translations for conditional sacramental use and will now be transitioning to the English Standard Version.

The Mystery Religions and Christianity

Classic study offers understanding of ancient religious cults, their appeal and eventual failure in the face of Christianity. Eleusinian Mysteries of Greece; Attis and Magna Mater; Dionysian groups; Egyptian Cults of Isis and Osiris; and others.

Each of these religions offered something to its followers that the older ethnic and present religions could not: a sense of the value of the individual; heightened areas of experience, even to the manipulations of sensory experience; psychological insights that are now being appreciated. Yet they all ended out within a couple of centuries of the Christian era, Gnosticism (apart from a few vestigial groups in the Near East and Europe) subsuming their heritage last.

The Twelve Conclusions of the Lollards

The Twelve Conclusions of the Lollards are preserved in their original English form (other Latin summaries survive) in Roger Dymok’s “Against the Twelve Heresies” of the Lollards, an elaborate refutation of each of the heresies, written in 1396-97 for Richard II. The original conclusions were presented to parliament (which took no action) and posted at St. Paul’s Cross.

The text that follows is literally translated from the Middle English, at the cost of some archaisms and obscurities, a few of which are explained in italicized glosses.

The Twelve Conclusions of the Lollards
Young's Literal Translation

Young’s Literal Translation is a translation of the Bible into English, published in 1862. Robert Young, compiler of Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible and Concise Critical Commentaries on the New Testament, made the translation. Young used the Masoretic Text and Textus Receptus as the basis for his translation. He wrote in the preface to the first edition, “It has been no part of the Translator’s plan to form a New Hebrew or Greek Text—he has therefore somewhat rigidly adhered to the received ones.” Young produced a “Revised Version” of his translation in 1887, but he stuck with the Received Text. He wrote in the preface to the Revised Edition, “The Greek Text followed is that recognized as the ‘Received Text,’ not because it looks perfect, but because the department of Translation is somewhat definite from that of textual criticism, and few are qualified for both. If the original text be altered by a translator reader in uncertainty whether the translation given is to be considered as that of the old or of the new reading. "A new Revised Edition was released ten years after Robert Young’s death on October 14, 1888. The 1898 version was based on the Textus Receptus, easily confirmed by the word “bathe” in Revelation 1:5 and the word “again” in Revelation 20:5. The “Publishers’ Note to the Third Edition” explains, “The work has been subjected to a fresh revision, making no adjustment on the principles on which the Translation proceeds, but endeavoring to carry out it as nearly perfect in point of accuracy on its present lines as possible.”
