The Tale of Two Covenants

Christ changed the theological landscape in the first century. It was all part of the plan before time began. [2 Tim. 1:9, 10]. However, this great change is not what we've come to think it is. Current day Churchianity, lost in a maze of deceit, is missing a vital key of understanding from the Biblical record in the first century, which was discarded in the intervening millennia. In the first verse of the book of Matthew we read, "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." In Matthew chapter fifteen, Christ said, "I am sent only toes the lost sheep of the House of Israel." And in Matthew 5:17, Christ said, "Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." Why are these Old Testament references in the first book of our New Testament?

Creation In Six Days ... But Who’s Counting? The Blind Man’s Elephant

[Ed. Note: The new version of the series COSMOS has aired, hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, stirring up a bit of controversy with his comment, “If you start using your scripture, your religious text as a source of your science, that’s where you run into problems.” His statement was made from a position of ignorance regarding the Biblical text. Therefore, we thought it appropriate to highlight this edition of redshoebooks with an excerpt showing that while the Biblical record may not be a science text, it certainly has scientific facts in it that were made known thousands of years before current day scientists discovered them].

Also, the “Christian Old Testament” is not in its ancient original order thanks to the Roman cleric Jerome in the fifth century CE.
