This site exists solely for those readers of A Scriptural Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom who want to know more about the Bible. I explain this on its page More on the Bible. Therefore, this site you are now on (Bible Notes for “A Scriptural Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom”) is a sub-site to that master site. (Therefore, if you clicked here to learn more about me, go instead to About for the master site.)
I expect only a minority of the master site’s readers to be interested in this sub-site. For this reason, that master site will seldom refer to this sub-site, while this sub-site may often refer to the master site. This is because the proclamation of truth through the master site is my primary purpose. This companion site serves but a secondary, albeit important, purpose.
For this same reason, the e-mail sign up and RSS feeds for this site are additional and completely separate from those of the master site. Since the majority of the master site’s readers won’t be using this sub-site, I don’t want to confuse them.
I am writing everything on this sub-site as if you are a reader of the master site, wanting more biblical support for its ideas and biblical direction for your thinking. Therefore, the biblical references and notes I provide here may seem more choppy and less cohesive. Consider this sub-site like an appendix in a book which makes sense only in the context of the book. A book does not serve its appendix; the appendix is to serve the book. (The two exceptions to all this are the two books shown to the right The Biblical Case for Everyone Going to Heaven and Whatever Became of Jesus Christ? – each of which can stand alone and be read independently.)
If somehow you have reached this sub-site without having come through the master site, then by all means go now to A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom…for it more directly tells of the pearl of great price: Jesus our Lord. To Him be the glory!
If you want to learn even more about the Bible, or if you are already familiar with the Bible and want to hear these truths discussed with more biblical reference, then I refer you to A Bible Reader’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
I don’t claim copyright to anything I write on this site. You are free to use my material however you wish – with or without attribution. (See official notice to this effect at bottom of this page.) As for material copyrighted by others to which I link or that is otherwise accessed here, we should all respect their rights.
I welcome challenge and criticism; the truths I proclaim will withstand testing. If you’d rather not identify yourself, that’s okay, as I do allow comments to be made anonymously.
I only delete comments that are spam or excessively profane. The only editing I do of comments is to remove profanity as an alternative to deleting the entire comment.
Where a response is sought, I try to give one in a timely manner. Otherwise, I only respond if I think it will be helpful. In cases where there is no reconciliation of views, I prefer to let the challenger have the last word. May the Spirit of Jesus Christ prevail and may His truth make progress in all our hearts.
If you like what I write, just practice it – you don’t need say anything to me about it or make yourself known to me. I don’t need your approval and you don’t need mine. Walk before God and walk with God – that’s what matters.
