Jesus Drank, Judas Repented and God Divorced His Bride
Jesus Drank Judas Repented and God Divorced His Bride Author:Steve Brown "Jesus Drank, Judas Repented and God Divorced His Bride" is a pro-Christian, non-fiction regarding the use of wine and other alcoholic beverages during antiquity, the repentance of Judas Iscariot in Matthew 27:3 and why it is overlooked, why God Divorced Israel (Isaiaj 50:1) and stoned her to death in 70AD, and divorce in the modern world. This ... more »book will force you to re-evaluate your understanding of the bible. It will cause you to re-look at the passages and re-interpret their meaning. The author's goal is to encourage you to read and understand the bible and this book delivers. Why is this book different?
1. Using solid Biblical references, this book seeks to stir up heightened interest in what the Bible says by questioning even the most primary, and most popular biblical teachings e.g. Noah took fourteen reindeer on the ark (Genesis 7:2.);
2. MOST religious books are largely "sugar coated," so to speak. Non-controversial. But, the Bible isn't that way. Neither is JD, JR&GDHB. If you do an objective study of the contents of the Bible, you'll discover that God can be quite a difficult God. Christ was not popular because he gave everybody "warm fuzzies," rather, he was strong in his understanding of the Hebrew law and his understanding and intolerance for arrogance and self-righteousness.
What will the reader walk away with after reading the book?
1. A far greater understanding the bible and it's implications
2. A biblical understanding of forgiveness, and our responsibility to forgive
Examples of common biblical knowledge that is challenged...
Regarding most topics/trials/life issues in life, most people don't know what the bible says.
1. The prophet Ezra (Ezra 10: 3-5) blessed a divorce and proclaimed that the men should "be of good courage, and do it."
2. Just ask anybody how many animals of each kind Noah took on the ark. They'll say two, and that is the wrong answer. God said take 14 of most, 4 of the others.
3. Regarding forgiveness, the bible says. Mathew 27:3 clearly states that Judas (a.) repented, (b.) confessed his sin publicly and (c.) gave the money back.
