Tired of trying to fit into society's mold of religion? Following someone else's path to spiritual enlightenment? Efforts to do this have left most of us feeling like we are sitting alone in the dark. The Weekly Eureka invites you to flip on a light switch - ask the questions - question the answers and join others on the journey to the most important discovery of all - that of your true self.


The Bible is not a book.  It is a collection of 66 books (from the Greek word ta biblia, which means "the scrolls" or "the books"), written by 40 different authors (including shepherds, fishermen, kings, farmers, scribes, poets, priests and prophets) in different languages over a period of 1,500 years to different people groups who spoke different languages, in different generations, for different reasons.


The Bible is divinely inspired, but penned and communicated by humans.  We should honor both the divine and human aspects of the Bible in the same way that we revere Jesus as Son of God (divine) and Son of Man (human).  The Bible is divine and human, Spirit and flesh, Supernatural and natural.  This Bible is not to be worshipped, but revered.


The Bible was written in Hebrew and Greek.

-       Portions of the Bible were translated into English from 700-1350 A.D.

-       From 1380-1397 John Wycliffe translated the entire Bible into English and avoided many attempts on his life while doing so.

-       1526 William Tyndale produced the first New Testament translation from the original Greek.

-       1536 Tyndale is burned at the stake for his translation work.


The purpose of the Bible is to bring Revelation.  The Bible is a guide for us, to lead us to a greater understanding of the nature of God and God's relationship to all of creation. 


The Spirit always supersedes the letter.  Jesus continually challenged those of literal mindedness to see the truths contained in scripture in a more metaphorical, figurative and Spiritual way.


We should always keep these concepts in mind when studying the Bible.

"He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant - not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life."
