Prophecies Fulfilled By Jesus Christ
All of these prophesies were made hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years before Jesus Christ was born. Looking in the face of how He literally fulfilled them all (plus hundreds more), it is an impossibility that He is not Messiah, Saviour of the world. The ONLY person...past, present or future...who could fulfill all these prophecies is Jesus Christ. See His genealogy starting from faithful Abraham.

The commentaries of Robert Jamieson, A.R. Fausset & David Brown were originally published in 1871. Quoting C H Spurgeon: "It is to some extent a compilation and condensation of other men's thoughts, but it is sufficiently original to claim a place in every minister's library: indeed it contains so great a variety of information that if a man had no other exposition he would find himself at no great loss if he possessed this and used it diligently." (Only Book of Ephesians available at the moment)

For over 50 years he pastored the church which later moved its location and became known as the Metropolitan Baptist Tabernacle of Charles Haddon Spurgeon fame.

Bible Study Resources Defined:
The more you use your Study Bible, the more you'll feel the limitations of its built-in helps. That's when you know you need other Bible Study Tools to:


A Bible Handbook is a companion to Bible reading. It provides a brief running commentary of each of the books of the Bible. It may contain maps, historical backgrounds, archaeological background, tables of weights and measures, lists of kings, messianic prophecies and genealogies and much more information. It provides background before you read through a Bible book, commentary and illustrations as you read, and topical and historical notes to expand your understanding.

A Concordance lists common words found in the Bible and shows the places where they occur. For example, under the entry 'faith' you'd find the locations in the Bible where the word "faith" is used. A concordance enables you to do word studies as well as locate verses you vaguely remember.

A Topical Bible is a guide to different subjects addressed in the Bible. It lists references to ideas and themes, regardless of whether the actual words are mentioned. Under faith, it will list not only the most important verses where the word "faith" is found, but also verses that talk about faith without using the word, for example Genesis 15:6, "Abraham believed the LORD...."

A Bible Dictionary gives definitions and pronunciations, and also provides biblical, historical, and theological information on people, places, words, and events in the Bible, all in alphabetical order. It is more like an encyclopedia than like a regular English dictionary. You could use it to learn more about what the Bible says about children, for example, or about Peter, or Egypt, or miracles.

A Theological Dictionary is similar to a Bible dictionary in that it provides notes on how a word or subject is used in both the Old and New Testaments. In addition to that information, a theological dictionary also has comments on how the topic has been viewed by the church down through the years. The topics are listed in alphabetical order.

A Commentary is a single or multi-volume work that explains the meaning of Bible passages. Commentaries give the commentator's perspective on passages in the Bible. They should never be the first books you check when doing a Bible Study, if you do, you start with somebody else's conclusions rather than finding your own. There is no substitute for first-hand study. You need to read the scriptures for yourselves, relying on the illuminating presence of the Holy Spirit. On the other hand, commentaries can be helpful in supplementing your own study by giving you other perspectives and additional insights. Devotional Commentaries, such as Matthew Henry's Commentary, focus on the spiritual significance of the text for our lives. Expository Commentaries focus on explaining the text, using historical, geographical, and cultural information as well as discussions of the original languages to explain the text.

A Bible Encyclopedia is a multi-volume set of articles about people, places, and subjects arranged in alphabetical order. It is similar to a Bible Dictionary but with much more information. They contain historical background information and sometimes there is commentary information also.


Types of Bible Studies:

Subject/Topic - Choose a topic or subject and look in your resources to find related verses.

Character - There are many Bible characters to choose from. David, Ruth, and Peter are just a few.

Book - You might choose a book in the Old or New Testament and study the whole book.

Verse by Verse - in context: often people will take a verse in the Bible out of context. So when you study the verse make sure you look at the verse in front of and after your verse of choice.

Expository Study this type of study involves taking a passage in the Bible and finding out exactly what it means. You will go through a passage sentence by sentence and word by word. Start by reading and re-reading the passage.
