Holiness in the Early Church

The early Christian church changed the world. History informs us that the seeds of this revolution were sown by Jewish missionaries who traveled throughout the known world one hundred years preceding the birth of Jesus. They preached that The Messiah would come very soon and would change the world. And He did. To accomplish this awesome change, God used early Christians working together as a church. Often referred to as Nazarenes because they were the followers of Jesus of Nazareth, they were also referred to as those who kept or followed The Way.

This article examines how these early Christians viewed holiness.

The Book of Galatians and a New Perspective on Paul

Orthodox Christianity emphasises that Paul's message is very different from that of the Old Testament and of the other apostles, and even redefines the gospel message Jesus delievered. Orthodoxy uses its perspective of Pauline theology, based upon its eisegesis of the book of Galatians along with a few other scriptures, to emphasize that Christianity is a very different religion than the one that Jesus followed while he was here on Earth.

The New Perspective on Paul emphasises that Paul's message is not only in agreement with the rest of scripture, but that his message harmonizes seamlessly with that of the rest of the apostles. This paper uses the background of the New Perspective on Paul to deliver an original exegesis of the book of Galatians.

The Calculated Jewish Calendar: An Examination of Postponements, New Moons, Seasons and More

The Calculated Jewish Calendar is designed to make the history of today's calendar readily available to the reader, while also providing basics in astronomy so that Christians can more fully celebrate all of the feasts of God listed in Leviticus 23. It also asks the question, if the Pope doesn’t have the authority to change the day of the first of God’s feasts listed in Leviticus 23, the weekly Sabbath, do the Jews have the right to change the days of the other feasts?

Chaos Is Not Confusion

In Hebrew thought, the idea of confusion did not mean a jumbled mess. It did not mean you could not make up your mind between two choices. It did not mean you were lost and could not find your way. It did not mean that you had embraced an errant idea, unless that errant idea caused you to do something that was shameful. In the Bible, something caused confusion was something that caused shame.

How does that differ from chaos?

God is Not the Author of Confusion, but He is the Author of Chaos examines this in detail. Download the paper or the seminar presentation slides.
