Question #4:  What are some commentaries on the miracles of Jesus.

By far the best commentary on the miracles of Jesus is the Gospel of John.  You will be surprised to
discover that John lists only 7 miracles; but being the last of the 4 Gospels and knowing that Matthew,
Mark, and Luke had covered the wide range of the many miracles of Jesus already, the Apostle John
focused on weaving around those only 7 miracles the teachings of Jesus and proofs of Jesus as the
Son of God which John calls “signs”.  While like all Gospels written under the inspiring influence of the
Holy Spirit, you see the personality and unique purpose of John, even the unique personality style, as
the teachings and other signs become commentaries on the miracles, and vice versa.  Of course, you
know how the Apostle John states the purpose of his Gospel in John 19:30,31.

“And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this
book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that
believing you may also have life in His name.”  (NJKV)

God gave Jesus the power to do these miracles in order to convince the world that He is and was the
Son of God.  Indeed being the only Son of God and in human flesh, it was inevitable that He could
perform only the miracles that God can do.

At the popular and preaching level of the subject of miracles of the Bible in general is the book of
sermons under that title by Dr. R. G. Lee, former President of the SBC and pastor of Bellevue Baptist
Church.  It is intense in content, packed with Scripture and reasoning, as only Dr. Lee could do—all of
which disappeared when the superficial Adrian Rogers and other fundamentalists took over the
Bellevue pulpit as well as control over the SBC.  You still have the very conservative commentaries of
B.H. Carroll on the whole Bible, AN INTERPRETATION OF THE ENGLISH BIBLE; and of course F.F.
Bruce and others in THE NEW INTERNATIONAL COMMENTARIES.  Following in their traditions,
packed with even more Scriptures, you will find my commentary
“Christ for Individuals” on the 5 books
from the Apostle John and in the LEARN CHRIST COMMENTARIES, volume 2, and on which you will
find more information on the SunGrist_Bible website of, in the section on
the Gospel of John supports on the miracles the approach of John as miracle-signs as well as
teaching, character, and other action signs of believing, also focusing on another beginning theme of
the Gospel of John which John borrowed from Jesus, “Come and See”.  John and Jesus would have
you come and see the miracles, come and hear the teachings, and come in order to believe and have
life, an abundant and eternal life. {You will find more on “Christ for Individuals”, this LCC commentary
on the 5 books of John on the following pages, also

Question #5:  Who are some of the Great Prophets of the Bible?

I would have to say that all the Prophets God selected to write Scriptures for Him would be in the great
category like the four major Prophets of Ezekiel, Daniel, Jeremiah, and Isaiah.  Most Bible scholars
consider Isaiah the greatest not only for the size of the book but also for the magnitude of the
coverage, especially on eschatology.  You will find two volumes of the LEARN CHRIST commentaries
built around Prophets with comments on them by the Apostles of Christ, volume 1 on “
Prophets and
Apostles” {at} and also volume 5, “The Message of the
Writing Prophets” (at}.  Actually the writing Prophets of
the OT besides the 16 major and minor prophets include other writing prophets like Moses, Job,
David, and Solomon.  Yes, you will find that Jesus and His Apostles call these men Prophets.  Pastor
James in the book of James noted the patience of Job and the power in prayer of the non-writing
Prophet Elijah, but stressed also how there could be such greatness in prayer today of Christians of a
like nature (James 5:17).

Question #6:  What are the Bible teachings on Magic?

Magic is a taboo or “no-no” in the Bible.  Magic was used by Pharaoh’s magicians in Egypt in attempts
to simulate the miracles that God gave to Moses, and therefore to divert Pharaoh away from any
confidence in the Word of God through Moses.  Also we find similar efforts in the book of Acts to
simulate the miracles performed by the Apostles of Jesus.  Long ago in Deuteronomy 18:10,11 the
people of magic and magic were admonished against among God’s own people.

“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son of his daughter pass through the fire
{a custom of idolatrous religions in Palestine}, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one
who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one
who calls up the dead.”  (NKJV)

The whole concept of such condemnations is to separate between communications with God and the
Spirit of God versus Satan and the spirits of Satan.  What “magic” we use in the website is to get your
attention on the magic of God, which we realize to be more appropriately called “mysteries” in the
Bible, in that they are grand truths which would not be known unless God made them known.  We use
in the word “magic” in THE MAGIC OUTLINE of the Bible to get your
attention, and in desperation to describe what is really in this outline from God that is much, much
more than you can expect.  The other title for this magic outline is the Top 12 Topics of the Bible, and
in general in the future we may want to call it ASPI for Authorized Semi-Public Interpretation of the
Bible, which simply says that since “no scripture is of any private interpretation” God has provided on
only the Scripture but also the proper interpretation.  When an Apostle quotes from the OT Prophet,
God through the Apostle gives the proper interpretation of the Prophet, or vice versa, the Prophet
interprets the Apostle or Jesus, like for example when Moses explained in detail what Jesus quoted to
Satan, “Man shall not live by bread alone.”  {

Question #7:  What are Christian Teachings on Enoch?

Perhaps by “Christian teachings” you mean where in the New Testament is Enoch mentioned.  Well,
of course, Enoch was in the human blood line of Jesus of Nazareth as presented by Dr. Luke in Luke
3:27; Paul with other heroes of the faith commends in Hebrews 11 the extent of the faith of Enoch,
“who walked with God”, and was translated to eternal life with God without experiencing death
(Hebrews 11:5); and Jude tells us that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, foretold the false prophets in
the church, and how Christ would come with 10,000 angels to execute judgment on these that mislead
the elect of God.

Now in reality since conservative Christians accept the whole Bible as the Word of God, we would
have to consider that OT scriptures are also Christian teachings such as that Jared begat Enoch
(Genesis 5:18), such as Enoch begat Methuselah {the oldest man to live, 782 years old as given in
Genesis 5:26, noting that this was before in Genesis God shortened the life span of man because of
the evil on the earth}; such as Enoch lived 365 years {Genesis 5:23}; and such as Enoch walked with
God, and was not because God took him {Genesis 5:24).

I would have to say that the most Christian of all the Bible teachings on Enoch would have to be that
(1) He walked with God, and (2) that God so much righteousness by faith in the life of Enoch that God
translated him straight to heaven without death.  Certainly this would be great Christian teachings in
that they encourage us to live more like Christ, the firstborn from the dead and our example as the
author and finisher of our faith!

Question #8:  What are Teachings on Church?

SunGrist_Bible would try to focus more on Bible teachings than theology or church history about any
doctrine or teachings, especially on the word “church”.  We know we are in trouble today in our
churches and in our doctrines and practices on church since we do not find ourselves in the position
that Jesus suggested often to the 11 Apostles in John 13-17 where the prime way the world would
know that God sent Jesus and believe would be if the world first saw the kind of humble unselfish
service among church members—this is both in a local church and across church and denominational
lines which will be made clear when we look at the New Testament usages of the word “ecclesia”
translated church in the Bible.

The Greek word translated “ecclesia” is found approximately 128 times in the Bible with by far the
most of those simply meaning a local church like the church at Antioch, the church in Jerusalem, and
the church at Rome.  Approximately 20 times the word ecclesia is used in a larger sense as the total
body of believers as in the “church of the firstborn, written in heaven” (Hebrews 12:23) and the one
body of Christ which is shown to be THE CHURCH in Ephesians and Colossians.  {Perhaps you
would like to read Paul’s Statement of Faith and Practice, the book of Ephesians, on the
SunGrist_Bible website at} There is one usage of ecclesia in
the Septuagint {the Greek version of the Old Testament} which is literally the “called  out assembly” in
the desert, or the congregation of Israel.  We can learn a great deal from this early assembly of
believers, especially how that after a period of 40 years they were shown not to be real lasting
believers after all {they were not what Jesus would call “fruit that remains” in John 13-17.  see
“Friends of Jesus” from}  

These subject could be extremely long, but I will cut to the chase, simply recommending to you that
you do a lot of Bible study on the subject and that the many related books and free downloads can
help you on  Bottom line is that while 3 main denominations {they claim
the church instead of denominations} claim to be the only church, attempting by imagination and
twisted Bible exegesis to make themselves synonymous with the one body of Christ, the church of the
firstborn written in heaven {they wish}, therefore the only Christians in the world—that within itself
defeats the intention of Jesus that by humble unselfish service between all Christians and local
churches, the world would come to believe in Jesus—and I am sure you know those to be THE
Mormon Church, THE ROMAN Church (by the way the history of early Christian churches did move
into this doctrinal unsound mass called the Roman Catholic Church, primarily because they made the
Bishop at Rome the head Bishop.  Of course, they were not the only churches going astray from
sound doctrine as all but one of the seven churches of Asia Minor listed in Revelation had surpassed
the Roman Church in departure from Jesus Christ.}, and THE Church of Christ.  However, what you
really want to do, if possible, is to identify with the one general assembly of the firstborn, written in
heaven; for it is the church roll in heaven {which also corresponds to the book of life of Revelation}
that counts in the final analysis; and I assure you that neither the Roman Church, the church of Christ,
or the LDS church exercises any control whatsoever over this assembly of the Firstborn.  It is under
the complete control of Christ and the kingdom of Christ.  By no means are these 3 large
denominations alone in the pride of an exclusive group.  History is replete with groups who tried to
comfort their own people that they were the very elect of God.  In fact, according to the Bible any local
church that develops an exclusive attitude or exclusive practices which set them up or isolate them
from all other Christians have violated many basic teachings of the Bible, and continue to do so each
day:  (1) the humble service attitude; (2) the proper attitudes to talents and callings of the one body
where the toes, arms, and head, etc must come from other than the local church—you see the one
body can not be a local church; and (3) any exclusive attitudes defeats the prime method of
evangelism advised by Jesus as the world might see the non-exclusive and loving attitude among all

Question #9:  What Does the Bible say about Conscience?

I will make this short and to the point as you will find on the SunGrist_Bible website a page called “The
Conscience Page” which deals with some of the places in the Bible where the word conscience is
What is most important, and I hope this question does not come from the same person who constantly
wrote in the search question “Peter, won’t you please answer God” which tends to remind one of  the
pleas of Texas U at football games in response to the “Good ‘ole Baylor line” that Gabriel would
please blow his horn.

The reason Peter’s usage of conscience is so important—“the answer of a good conscience toward
God”—is that this is the individual and ultimate answer of any person in the world for salvation.  The
salvation is the one baptism {read about the ONEs in Ephesians}, and the answering is that one
baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh as Peter explains which one might do with water
baptism, with rather with the answer of a good conscience of faith in God and Jesus toward God.

10.        List 12 doctrines of the Bible.

Wow, it is hard to know where to start with a list after 12 major doctrines of the Bible are listed.  The
first 12-20 are easy since they would have to be considered the major doctrines of the Bible; however,
beyond that it is like asking for a complete list of all the teachings of the Bible, but even that you will
find in this answer a general solution for.  You may be asking, what makes a doctrine a MAJOR
doctrine of the Bible, and the answer comes back immediately as twofold:  (1) what subjects or
teachings (remember that doctrine in the Bible is another word for teachings} are found most often in
the Bible, and here you have to count on confidence in people like myself that for over 50 years have
spent much time and study on the Bible {of course, you can also verify this with looking at a Young’s
or Strong’s Analytical Concordance as to which key words are found most often in the Bible, like God,
Christ, Holy Spirit, salvation, etc.}; and (2) what respected men of God recently and in Christian history
have found to be major in the Bible.  Such books would surely have to include “These Things We
Believe” by J. Clyde Turner, “Fundamentals of the Faith” by Herschel Hobbs, “Systematic Theology”
by Strong, and “The Gospel of Redemption” by W. T. Connor {and other textbooks used at still
conservative Baptist colleges and seminaries.  A note of caution should be given here to find older
books on Doctrine that were written before the churches and denominations moved into the Falling
Away where “the time {came} when they would {no longer} endure sound doctrine; but out of the
personal desires of church members and denominational leaders were heaped up {violently amassed}
Bible teachers and preachers with itching ears {a tickling only satisfied by new and novel and
scholarly respected doctrines}, in seminaries, pulpits, classrooms, in books, and on television—
goodness, have you ever seen such a heaping up as today as the self-appointed and self-called Bible
teachers and preachers are coming out of the wood work so much so that you would have to say that
there is a revival not of good sound Bible doctrine but of a rapid increase in intolerance toward sound
doctrine that in general might only come with the withdrawal of the Holy Spirit from earth as predicted
in II Thessalonians; they will turn away from the truth and be turned into fables.”  {this is a paraphrase
of the truth in II Timothy 4:4,5)
Of course the best way to get major doctrines is to read your Bible.  As one practical Bible scholar
said, “Read your Bibles, they will throw a lot of light on the commentaries.”
And I would hope that you would primarily add to the list of books on major doctrines of the Bible, my
book SOME SOUNDS OF SOUND FAITH.  Faith here is used in the general sense of sound doctrine,
like in Jude where it is the “faith once for all delivered to the saints”; and don’t ever let anyone
convince you that there is a sort of evolution to sound doctrine {alias sound Bible} that is getting better
as we get smarter in the world.  Surely this argument of getting better has also gone down the drain in
the last 35 years as we have increased in war, starvation, and other problems in the world.  We do
show some evidences of progress where we put our money like in space, computers, and technology;
however in corruption, the rising tide of the mystery of lawlessness, in sin and immorality, in terrorism,
and even in the taking advantage of our own people in America by government and big business we
have also shown rapid increases.  Bottom line:  revelation is complete and was complete at the end of
the first century as church leaders began to canonize the Bible.  What tells remains to be done in the
lives of more Christians is illumination.  While the Holy Spirit has a large part on Revelation and
Illumination—He, the Spirit, interprets, what He the Holy Spirit wrote, anytime you take the approach
that “God told me”, you are running the risk of putting yourself in the category of only apostles and
prophets to whom God gave revelations; and you will find at the base of such haughtiness the attitude
at Corinth of “the word of God came to us only” or “the word of God came out of us”, likewise you will
find that you, your church and your denomination, and your leaders are violating other God-given
admonitions of I and II Corinthians such as charismatic disturbances in church worship.  
Anyway as you will find given often on this website, www.biblecombibleman.
product_somesounds/ , {also you will find a
and you can listen to some of these sound doctrines in message format on www.biblecombibleman.
com/listen/ } from SunGrist_Bible 10 major doctrines of the Bible:  God, Christ, Holy Spirit, Salvation,
Bible as Word of God, Faith, Gospel, Assembly {church and churches}, Day of the LORD and Lord
{this centers around the Second Coming but many other things happened this one day}, and the
Falling Away.  Now if we would go from the ten to twelve we would break down some of these most
major into majors as for example the Day of the LORD and Lord as started by the Second Coming of
Christ, then including Judgment where the tares are separated from the wheat, goats from sheep, and
then the also major doctrines of heaven and hell.
Now lastly and briefly, if you would become concerned about all the teachings or doctrines of the
Bible, I would suggest the Magic Outline of the Bible that you will find introduced on www.
/Magic_Page/ , which is another title for “The Top 12 topics of the Bible”; and
in the future will probably be name “The Authorized Semi-Public Interpretation of the Bible” which is
demanded by the Scripture “no scripture is of any private interpretation” from Peter which in turn
demands that there be only one authorized interpretation of the Bible, and that from God through only
the Prophets and Apostles.  The semi-public comes in by virtue of the uniqueness of this book from
God in that only those who meet the criterion for understanding as given in the Bible can also receive
the proper interpretation, and that eliminates a lot of PhDs and  ThD’s who have not experienced the 9
month new birth or who show more confidence in their own wisdom than in the spiritual discernment
from God.  Anyway you will find this Magic Outline as a good proper guide for all the major teachings
of the Bible; and further you will find that the 5 volumes of  the LEARN CHRIST commentaries {see have been exhaustively built in writing and
publication around this same outline.  {Actually the magic outline if dual in that while it is around 12
major subjects, it is also the 66 books of the Bible in the most probably historical sequence of writing
so that you have the progressive revelation step by step as in “the Bible is a progressive revelation of
God coming to a great and eternal climax in Christ”.}
