Understand the New Testament as Never Before!
Noted teacher and gospel scholar, David J. Ridges, makes the New Testament come alive in The New Testament Made Easier. The Savior's mortal ministry and atoning sacrifice are felt as well as studied. In-the-verse notes provide a unique teaching tool which allows you to read the complete Bible text of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John while being taught the meaning of difficult Bible words and phrases, symbolism, doctrine, culture and setting. Notes between the verses clarify and alert you to major concepts and messag
I really enjoy the format in Ridges' scripture study books over the format in other study guides. He includes the KJV, any JST that has changes, and commentary. If there are a lot of pronouns (And they took him. And he said unto him. . . ) Ridges identifies who is doing what. (Admit it, there are times you read a few verses and get lost as to who is talking to whom because only pronouns are used rather than names or group identifiers). He offers explanations for holidays and customs, but there are times there could be more information given that would help the reader understand the "Jewish" mindset and lifestyle of the early disciples and apostles. I find Ridges' study guides a valuable asset when studying the scriptures.
