Longman Ditionary

An overview of some key points from the Bible, which is a sacred text revered by millions of people around the world. The Bible is divided into two main sections, the Old Testament (also known as the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh) and the New Testament, and contains numerous books written over a span of many centuries. Here are some key points from the Bible:

  1. Creation: The Bible begins with the story of God’s creation of the world, as described in the book of Genesis. It tells of God’s creation of the universe, the earth, and all living creatures, including the first humans, Adam and Eve.

  2. Sin and Redemption: The Bible describes how humanity’s disobedience to God, known as sin, entered the world through Adam and Eve’s actions, resulting in a broken relationship between God and humanity. The Bible teaches that God initiated a plan of redemption and salvation through various covenants and promises, ultimately culminating in the coming of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.

  3. Ten Commandments: The Ten Commandments are a set of moral and ethical laws given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai, as recorded in the book of Exodus. They form a central part of the Old Testament and are considered foundational principles for living a godly life.

  4. Life and Teachings of Jesus: The New Testament focuses on the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is considered by Christians as the Son of God and the promised Messiah. It includes the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), which provide accounts of Jesus’ life and teachings, as well as other books that expound on his teachings and the early Christian church.

  5. Salvation and Grace: The Bible teaches that salvation is a gift from God, offered to all humanity through faith in Jesus Christ. It emphasizes the concept of grace, which is God’s unmerited favor, as the means by which people can be reconciled to God and receive forgiveness of sins.

  6. Love and Compassion: The Bible teaches the importance of love and compassion towards God, oneself, and others. The greatest commandments, as taught by Jesus, are to love God with all one’s heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself.

  7. Eschatology: The Bible includes prophecies and teachings about the end times, the second coming of Jesus, and the ultimate fulfillment of God’s plan for creation. Eschatological beliefs vary among different Christian denominations and interpretations.

  8. Moral and Ethical Guidance: The Bible provides guidance on various moral and ethical issues, including social justice, relationships, sexuality, stewardship of resources, and living a righteous and upright life.

It’s important to note that interpretations of the Bible may vary among different religious traditions, denominations, and individuals. The above points provide a general overview of some key teachings and themes found in the Bible.

The Bible is a collection of religious texts that are considered sacred by Christians. It is divided into two main sections: the Old Testament and the New Testament. Here are some of the key points of each section:

Old Testament:

  • Describes the creation of the world and humanity, the history of the Jewish people, and the laws and commandments given to Moses by God.
  • Tells the stories of many famous figures, including Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, and Solomon.
  • Contains prophetic writings, such as those of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, which predict the coming of a messiah.
  • Includes poetic books, such as Psalms and Proverbs.

New Testament:

  • Describes the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is believed by Christians to be the Son of God and the savior of humanity.
  • Tells the stories of the apostles and the early Christian church.
  • Contains letters written by various apostles, including Paul, to Christian communities throughout the ancient world.
  • Concludes with the Book of Revelation, which describes the end of the world and the final judgement.


Overall, the Bible teaches about the nature of God, the meaning and purpose of human life, and the importance of faith, love, and obedience to God’s will.

Spanish translations by Vélez Translations,

As anyone who’s successfully completed any level of education knows, any decent curriculum will unfold gradually with the most basic lessons at the beginning and the most difficult at the end.

So, take a typical math curriculum for example. The first level of instruction will include lessons about counting to a certain number, counting by two’s and three’s, and maybe a little addition and subtraction.

But higher levels of instruction will cover concepts like algebra, problem solving, trigonometry, and functions. And in between those two levels are a series of progressive lessons that help prepare a student for the higher levels. The curriculum is designed to progressively reveal knowledge to the student.

Now what would you make of someone who looks at a curriculum like that and criticizes it by only ever looking at the fist level and says, “All their doing is counting and a little addition? They aren’t even doing long division? How is this a good math curriculum?”

And then they selectively quote from the primary lessons in order to convince other people that this is a bad curriculum. They point out how rudimentary and inferior this is because it doesn’t cover the topics and knowledge that many of us who are already educated take for granted.
Wouldn’t you think that was dishonest? Wouldn’t you think that was a slanderous and fallacious way of describing that curriculum? Well, something like that goes on when the Bible and the Church are discussed by critics all the time, especially on the topic of slavery.

You could describe the Bible as a kind of spiritual and ethical curriculum. It depicts the gradual and progressive unfolding of knowledge and experience for those who were being formed by God in history so that they could come to a full knowledge of what is good and true.

So you might identify one of the first lessons with the story of God’s liberation of the Jewish people from Egypt through Moses as his prophet. And in those stories, he gives them the 10 commandments and the Mosaic law.

But these are just the first lessons. God goes on to continue to reveal what is true and good throughout the history of these people until he reveals himself fully through the person and teachings of Jesus. Jesus is the calculus in this mathematical curriculum.

But what I see a lot of anti-Christian and atheistic critics doing these days, is quoting from the first lessons, going back to Moses and the law and saying, look at how evil the Bible is for not fixing all the objectionable things in his time.

You have to remember, the Bible is telling us about a people who had to be told that killing and stealing was wrong. God is starting at the rudest level of ethical understanding to help humanity know how to begin. So he starts with a legal system that introduces people to the concept and practice of justice. This is the 1+1 and counting by two’s lesson in ethics.

So on the topic of slavery, critics will quote passages from this first ethical lesson while ignoring everything that came after it, up to and including all the teachings and actions of the Church.

But the first thing I’d want to point out is that no other ethical curriculum in the world condemned slavery either. Every nation and civilization up until the middle ages had slavery. The Persians had it, the Chinese had it, the Egyptians had it, the Greeks and Romans had it, the indigenous people of the Americas had it, Africans had it, and the Islamic world… you better believe they had it. Mohammed personally owned and sold slaves.

So what we have are people taking cheap shots at Christianity for not abolishing slavery in the very fist ethical lesson of its curriculum and calling it inferior, even though no other ethical framework accounted for it either.
Again, using the math analogy, that’s like criticizing the first math lesson in a curriculum for not having long division and denouncing it as an inferior curriculum as a result, when no other math curriculum ever even gets to long division.

So the question then becomes, if long division is analogous to remedying the evils of slavery, does Christianity ever do it or can atheists continue to lay this charge at the feet of the Church?

6 These things I command you” Jesus’ own words from the 4 Gospels

Back to menu

1 mrt. 2019

Of all the beautiful things Jesus is recorded as saying in the 4 Gospels, His direct commands are so easily overlooked. So here they are! In canon order. From all four gospels, (and Acts from the resurrected Jesus). I hope you love them.
I did not include ‘implied commands’, like the ones beginning “If you…”, or the ones that begin “whoever does this or does that will be…” as they are more like promises than commands. I tried to include only those things Jesus said that are unambiguous commands: “do this; don’t do that”. However, “peace be with you” is included as I could not tell if it was a blessing or a command. Maybe it is both?
Also, where Jesus quoted OT scripture or rebuked Satan is not included as He starts with “you have heard it said…”

Nonetheless, these are the commands of Jesus. 234 of them. In Jesus’s own words.

Also, please accept this FREE Commands of Jesus PDF:… – I will send you the Commands of Jesus from all 4 Gospels in the New Testament of the Holy Bible, as a free PDF download.

I uploaded a version WITHOUT the music. It is also slightly slower paced and meditative.

PODCAST of this episode:…

Go the whole world over, and proclaim the Good News to all mankind. -Mark 16-15(WNT) so please do your bit: like, share and subscribe. Above all – share it as much as you can…

In the 4 Gospels of the Holy Bible are over 230 commands that Jesus gave on how to live; how to be made whole; how to know better the kingdom of heaven; how to receive God’s Holy Spirit; how to do God’s work in life; and how to become reconciled with God. Throughout the 4 gospels many are repeated. In 2 of the Gospels you will find Jesus’s own words on what is referred to as “The Great Commission” ( 33:24 and 49:13 ) (“go into all the world…”). Jesus’s Greatest Commandment in the gospel of John; instructions on receiving the Holy Spirit / Holy Ghost in the synoptic gospels (1:22:49); implorings to follow Jesus; and all the commands in the gospel of the Holy Bible in the words of Jesus.

Only commands of Jesus are included in this video (and the pdf), except those such as Jesus’s instruction to the Samaritan woman at the well to ‘give me a drink’ (John 4-7).

Apart from these, I have endeavoured to make the list complete. Implied commands, scriptural-promises and ‘if’ statements are not included as they are not strictly commands, even though many can be seen as implying instruction. Good for you if you read them this way.

I work alone creating this content and I am not supported or endorsed by any venture or organisation.
