Quote from: Hoofer on May 13, 2021, 06:50:48 AMI listen to the NT on tape, in my service truck. 7 different narrations of the KJV, everyone reads the text differently. It takes between 1 - 1.5 weeks to go from Matthew-Revelation, depending on the reader/narrator & how many hours/miles + how fast/slow they read.Don't have a "favorite" - James Earl Jones, Eric Martin, Alexander Scourby, Daniel Wagner, Stephen Johnson, Bob Beeman, and George Zotatus?... Most are professionals (voice actors), Bob Beeman is a Pastor - and reads quite a bit differently than the rest. 4 years... maybe 5th year... about 40-45 times a year? Feels like I'm hearing it for the first time, the variation & emphasis of each narrator is so *different*. Much better than listening to the radio, and for renewing of the mind, the assurance & peacefulness of the Spirit, there is *nothing* better than filling your heart with the Word of God. Replace all those old "default" thoughts & ways, with a new way, an eternal way... push out the old stuff, by filling your mind with Spiritual things.Plus: If you're really *serious* about spending eternity with Jesus - don't you kinda want to get to *know* Him before you meet him face-to-face? We *are* suppose to be "conformed to His image", etc., right? That's what got me started, a desire to go back to those days in the beginning, "And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?" Luke 24:32 ... it's exciting, seriously, understanding things in context, like never before.
Quote from: Solars Toy on May 14, 2021, 12:08:16 AMI have several versions of the Bible and chose a different one for each study we do. I am currently reading through the Bible and using my English Standard Version. My sister has also shown me two Bible apps. The Blue Book Bible and Bible Hub.Toy
Quote from: Hoofer on May 14, 2021, 05:51:50 AMWhen I gave my life to Christ, it was difficult to put the Book down. Genesis to Revelation in 3 months, NASB, probably the second best thing I did at the time. I had to know as much as I could about the Lord - my heart just burned with excitement and the wonder of what He did FOR me. I miss those days, want them back.
Quote from: RV on May 16, 2021, 04:18:33 AMMy wife and I go to a weekly Bible study. I would be lost without the friendship, knowledge & study. We have grown close to the people in the study, their family and their prayer requests. I have learned a great deal and continue to learn every week. The once in a great while that we have to miss, our week is just not the same.
