Verify the truth for yourself. Test all things. (Acts 17:11; 1Th. 5:21) The resources listed below will hopefully help you understand the Scriptures more accurately as they relate to God’s character. The theological views held by these authors & websites, whether expressed here or elsewhere, do not necessarily represent those of Hope For All Connection. We don't defend any particular “brand” of Christianity. We are simply followers of Jesus, hungry for the truth—as it relates to God’s character, & the saving work of Jesus Christ & Him crucified; the Savior of the World (1 Cor. 2:2; John 1:29, 4:42; 1 John 2:2, 4:14). No matter of faith is more critical to us than knowing the father heart of God for all His creation, & Jesus Christ crucified for the whole world.
Bibles & Study Resources for In-depth Bible Study
Do you realize that Greek words and phrases are often translated differently among the various English translations? That is why we should not fully accept any translation at face value when we are particularly concerned with the meaning of a specific text of Scripture. Sometimes the differences are significant.

“The New Testament—Expanded Amplified Multiple Renderings” by Jonathan Mitchell.
Diligently provides the reader with the various possibilities of meaning that the original manuscripts present.
