Dear Friends, What do you think of study Bibles? Do you study the Bible without a guide
or reference for doctrine, or do you rely on commentary by other Christians who exegete
and interpret some of the doctrines of the Scriptures?
The better study Bible that I have in my library is the Orthodox Study Bible (OSB),
Copyright 2008, Thomas Nelson Bibles, Nashville, TN. Some of you may not appreciate
that, because you are of another tradition than the Christian tradition of the Orthodox
Church. You may be a Christian who holds to some form of Evangelical or Pentecostal
or Anglican belief, or maybe a Roman Catholic or a Baptist. Or non-denominational.
But what think you of the Weston Study Bible? It is an evangelical Protestant Bible
of amillennial historicist interpretation of Bible prophecy. Are there any of you who
are Evangelicals who interpret the Bible in a historicist and partial preterist and
amillennial way? I think some of what Weston teaches is derived from the earlier
teachings of the Church fathers of the GOC. There is some complimentary agreement
between what Weston taught and what the Church teaches. Take care.

For those of you who are more ecumenical minded, and would learn from study Bibles
of various traditions: Protestant, Baptist, Pentecostal, Dispensationalist, Roman Catholic,
Eastern Orthodox, and even Jewish, you would study various traditions of the Bible
teaching and even learn about the rabbis and the Talmud. Some of you do that more than
I do. I don't much care for what the Talmud says; it maligns Jesus Christ.
