Revelation by Dr. Abidan Shah

If you remember from last weekend, we are going to spend several weeks looking at the Bible and how we should handle God’s Word. This weekend, we are comparing the Bible to the holy books and sacred texts of other religions. Is the Bible different or is it just another religious text like any other? What puts the Bible in a class of its own? The title of this weekend’s message is “REVELATION”.

Greater than Religion by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will take a look at how Jesus’ birth was perceived by the religious leaders of His day. They were used to being in power and navigating the political climate of that day for their benefit. However, the coming of Jesus radically changed their way of life. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN RELIGION.”

DIGGING DEEP 3 (Bible Translations) by Abidan Paul Shah

In this Summer Bible Study we will be learning how to pick the best Bible translation. Don't be misled by the title. This is not just about picking between NIV and KJV or NASB and THE MESSAGE. We will be looking at deeper issues as to what goes behind translating the ancient languages in which the Bible was written. We will be debating issues such as "Is form more important than meaning or vice-versa?" Don't miss this!

How to Close a Prayer by Pastor Abidan Shah

In this message we will look at the line – “For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Some people claim that these words were not in the original manuscript. First, we will see how they are original and then we will understand how they are integral to the Lord’s Prayer.

DAILY DEVOTIONS FROM THE ORIGINAL GREEK – 1 John 1:4 by Abidan Paul Shah

Through the years many people have approached me with the desire to study the Bible in the original languages. Not that they don’t trust the Bible in their English translations, they just have a hunger for more. The pattern is quite familiar – They ask me for resources. I provide them with the best tools. They wade into the murky waters of Grammar, Syntax, and Critical Issues of the biblical text. Some go farther than others but inevitably they all turn to familiar shores, never to venture again. It is truly unfortunate… Hence, these “Daily Devotions from the Original Greek.” They are in no way exhaustive exegetical commentaries. They’re simply my personal devotions based on the original languages. Hopefully, they will inspire some to cast anchor and sail into uncharted waters. My prayer is that you won’t despair when the winds howl or the waves threaten to overturn the boat. οἱ ἄνεμοι καὶ ἡ θάλασσα ὑπακούουσιν αὐτῷ. (Matt. 8:27)

Episode 6: NT Textual Criticism (ft. Dr David A. Black)

In this sixth episode of Hoi Polloi, Abidan Shah interviews Dr. David Alan Black, professor of New Testament and Greek at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest. Te focus of this episode is New Testament textual criticism. Dr. Black studied under text-critic Harry Sturz. The Sturzian approach favors the reading that has the most text-type support. We will discuss 3 examples under this approach. If you have any questions or topics you would like to be discussed, tweet them to @hoipolloiradio.
