  1. To the Bible study leader,
    I want to introduce you to an online, free help for weekly Bible study
    preparation. Please look at http://www.freebiblecommentary.org It
    contains hundreds of video and audio verse by verse exegetical Bible studies
    and thousands of printed pages of detailed commentaries.
    I am a retired Baptist Professor who wants to make his life work
    available to the body of Christ.
    The strength of our churches is in the Biblical literacy of the person in
    the pew. Strong growing churches are built on strong growing Sunday
    Schools!!!
