Welcome

David Roth (Author)Welcome! This website is for anyone who is seeking to learn more about God's word.

You now have the option to read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

Recently, we finished reading a wonderful book published in 1867 by Henry Law entitled Christ is All: The Gospel in the Pentateuch. If you missed it or any part of it, you can find it by clicking the "Christ is All" tab at the top of this page. I am certain that you will find some refreshing ideas for your Bible studies or sermons.

Thank you for visiting this site and for your interest in learning and distributing God's Holy Word. May God bless you and use you in mighty ways. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

He Prayed for You

John 17:20-23

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.


There is nothing more comforting or exciting than to know that Jesus included you and me, if you are a Christian, in His prayers for the disciples. He did not pray for the world (v.9) and He did not pray for only His disciples. Jesus prayed for everyone who would come to believe in Him through the word of His disciples, which could only be the word of God, because the disciples were only God's messengers commissioned and sent by Jesus. (v.18) It is their word, the New Testament scriptures, which they and their disciples have given us, that you and I have come to believe and trust.

"How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:14-17)

Then, we are all brought into the Good Shepherd's fold by the same gospel message and sanctified unto the same God by the same Spirit. Jesus prayed that we would be one with each other as He was one with the Father and that we would be one in them. Jesus is our Mediator who represents us before God the Father but He also conveys to us all of the blessings of the Father. He is one with the Father and one with us, giving us access to every blessing of heaven.   Read More
