Genesis 1-11, Can you Believe It? -- this series is being posted upon request. We have a home Bible study once a week here and those who cannot attend either because of distance or time have asked if we can put up what we cover. It has been repeated with several groups through the years and material is occasionally added. This study has been reformatted and updated as of 2/12.

New: CANA -- Christian Answers For the New Age -- a website from Marcia Montenegro explaining and warning about New Age doctrines and ideas which are beginning to permeate Western culture. She was once immersed in all of it and then came to faith in Christ. This website is well-informed, not hysterical, and has some very well-written and researched articles.

The Christmas Star-- in place of the article we used to have is the DVD which contains all the information and the explanations. We can figure the actual date of Christ's birth extremely closely from information given in the Bible as well as historical data. The wise men were NOT three old men on camels (which were used only as beasts of burden by the Persians, and not as transportation for people), but the upper house of the Persian Parliament. The astronomical events were so unique and significant that the Romans thought the heavens themselves were applauding Caesar Augustus, whom they considered their prince of peace! The innkeeper, long maligned in sermon and legend, probably never existed, for the word translated in most versions as 'inn' was no public facility at all, but rather a reference to the guest rooms in each house. The biblical, historical, cultural and astronomical data all come together to tell us what happened during that incredible time. The DVD may be ordered here.
Further technical information regarding calendars and other data have been taken from the original article and are still available as notes here.
