This letter is one of the two greatest theological treatises of the New Testament. It is the ''Leviticus'' of the New Testament, detailing how the Lord Jesus Christ is both the fulfillment and the successor to all that had gone on before.
Dr. Chuck Missler was the Founder of Koinonia Institute and Koinonia House. It was Chuck’s vision for this ministry that brings us together. His aim was always to stimulate us to dig into the Bible ourselves because he knew that as we study there is a real opportunity for us to encounter the God of the Universe. Chuck passed away in May, 2018.
Romans is the definitive statement of Christian doctrine - the most comprehensive book in the New Testament. Its impact on history is unequaled. This is the first in a trilogy (Galatians, Hebrews) on Habakkuk 2:4, "the just shall live by faith." Which later became the mantra of the reformation. It has an international outlook: As a Roman citizen, and with both Hebrew and Greek culture of history, religion, philosophy, poetry, science, music, etc., Paul's Epistle to the Romans is the most profound writing that exists anywhere.
"Luke Volume II," often called "The Acts of the Apostles," completes the "Pentateuch of the New Testament." The traditional title of this book is, in some respects, a misnomer: it primarily deals with the "acts" of Peter and Paul. It really should be called "The Acts of the Holy Spirit."
"Finishing Well" is the name of the game. Here was a rich, young ruler - a 1st century "yuppie" if you will - who, although getting off to a rather problematic beginning, finished well, indeed.
A rich young ruler questioned Christ about what he needed to do to inherit eternal life. Mark's Gospel includes a detail that Matthew and Luke failed to mention: " And Jesus looking upon him loved him..." This hints at the possibility that young John Mark himself may have been that rich young man.

Matthew presents Jesus Christ as the Jesus as the Meshiach Nagid, the Messiah the King, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. It was written by a Jew, to Jews, about a Jew. This book of the Bible uses more Old Testament quotes than any other. The Gospel of Matthew emphasizes the saying of Jesus, including ten parables not found in any other Gospel. After first establishing the royal genealogy, he then goes on to focus on the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. Matthew uses the term "fulfilled" 82 times!
Isaiah was the most comprehensive of all prophets: his writing spans the entirety of history, from the creation of the world to the creation of “a new heavens and new earth.” No other prophet matches his majestic eloquence on the glory of God and the redemptive work and sufferings of the Coming Messiah, all the while making us clearly aware of God’s abounding Grace.
Parallel study using King James (KJV) and the International Standard Version (ISV).
Psalms is Israel's hymnal: it is poetry laced with strong theology. In Hebrew, this book is called Tehillim = "Praises." There are 55 psalms addressed to "the chief musician." [Greek: psalmoi, "a poem to be sung to a stringed instrument" or psaltar, for harp or stringed instrument.]
History instructs: Law teaches: prophecy announces, rebukes, chastens: morality persuades. Psalms is the medicine and succor for the comfort and encouragement of us all. They are written to the individual-all of us, individually.
Both of these books, filled with all the intrigue, romance, and action of any modern-day screen play, have been heralded for their literary value for centuries. But this is not their most rewarding feature. God's use of these two faithful women brings a new understanding of God's faithfulness and the importance of our faithful participation.
- How do we know what is really true?
- How do we know that the Bible is true?
- How sure can we be?
We live in a skeptical environment, where even the very existence of truth is questioned. Lately, the Bible - and even the Lord Jesus himself - has been under attack.
Join Chuck Missler as he examines the boundaries of our reality, explores ways to qualify sources of information, offers advice on testing hypothesis, and reveals the source of Ultimate Truth.

- Where are we headed?
- Can we do anything to halt the downward spiral of our once great nation?
Chuck Missler reviews the "state of the union" and the results of the liberal agenda. We take our lead from Jeremiah and Hosea: we can see the storm coming-we may not be able to divert or stop it, but we can warn others. Our prayer throughout this crisis is that the lessons won't be wasted.
It's time to get serious! Only a miracle can save America, but fortunately God is in the miracle business!
