- So Glad I Chose to Purchase This Bible!! by Lynndee on 9/28/2016
I bought this about a year ago and am very glad that I did. It is comforting just to hold it and look at the pictures included. I realized that so many of the things I had learned and practiced were little more than the basics. I didn't have a very good understanding of the depths and richness of my biblical ancestry. I wish I had more time to spend just reading and reading and reading. It's pricey but very much worth every cent.
- Excellent Bible ..... Love Reading This Bible!!! ----- FIVE STARS by Christopher on 9/16/2016
I have this Bible.... I purchased it from Family Christian.... I LOVE this Bible!!! The previous review was false and 100% innacurate! Here is the actually commentary.....
The Commentary to this Scripture Verse found in The First Century Bible is this.... Word for Word:
-----> 16:49 Sin of Sodom. Ezekiel identified the sin of Sodom as primarily that of neglecting the poor and needy.
Now this is the actual SCRIPTURE VERSE taken directly from Ezekiel 16:49 from The Holy Bible.... Word for Word:
"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the POOR and NEEDY." -- KJV
Now in the NIV
"Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the POOR and NEEDY." --- NIV
So ..... As you can see...... Where has this Commentary been off,.... When the Commentary simply REPEATS the actual Scripture found in The Bible!! LoL
Everybody......... If you are looking for a Beautifully Made.... Excellent Commentary Study Bible with 100% Sound Teaching..... Make an investment to ADD this NIV FIRST CENTURY STUDY BIBLE to your daily study!!! You will LOVE this Bible!!!
- Disappointed, Saddened and Incensed by HyperNike on 9/17/2014
Very disappointed, saddened and incensed by the commentary that Kent Dobson has in this Study Bible. In some specific cases the commentary is un-biblical and misdirected. To state that the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of a lack of hospitality is totally misdirected and does not consider the facts that these cities were destroyed by the wickedness of the inhabitants. If to argue as Kent Dobson does, that these people could not be condemned by wickedness as they had no standard to compare with is completely incorrect as Abraham would not have tried to save the cities by arguing if only a few righteous people were identified to save the city. God has a standard of right and wrong and that standard is absolute and no grey areas exist. I turned to Romans chapter 1 to see how Kent handled the clear description of sin by Paul and Kent left his commentary ambiguous and without a response to why Paul condemns some behavior. We cannot pick and choose what God says is sin. The law was written to show us we are sinners and need a savior but there is a natural law that all men know. Christ is the antidote to an eternal separation from God. There are consequences to sin and God holds teachers to a very high standard to what they teach. That standard should not be treated so flippantly.
