Hour 1:


Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: There is a massive, infinite ocean of truth that will set you free and change your life waiting for you in God’s Word. Dive in and let the truth of God’s Word transform your life.

Hour 2:


Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: In a world of darkness, and in a world where there is no clarity and are no absolutes, we go back to God. We kneel before Him, take out the Word, and we see, this is what the Lord Almighty says!

Your Questions Answered, Live!

What would be the best translation for a 10-year-old to use? Is there a reference in the rabbinic writings that, as a sign, the Messiah would heal a man blind from birth? Do modern translations water down the demands of the gospel by substituting the word “mature” for “perfect”? When the Bible speaks of “Zion” does it sometimes mean the Church?

What’s the Best Way to Study God’s Word?

Doing Word Studies in the Bible

Jeremiah Commentary by Dr. Brown: combines a detailed introduction, in-depth exegesis of the text, and serious spiritual reflection on the calling of a prophet and the burden of the Lord.

  1. I am listening to this episode live on my grassroots television show @ 3:30 Los Angeles Time.


    I am an orthodox Jew who is also a student of Jack Hayford’s seminary at King’s University where I am broadcasting live. One more intriguing detail about me is that I have been a practicing Nazirite off and on for over a decade.

    Who is Yeshua, Dr Brown is an expert on the one known as Yeshua ben Miriam. We want all the Jewish voices to be heard not just the mainstream popular Jewish perspective, thats why we love Dr. Brown!

  2. For those of us who can’t afford expensive Bible software, we can learn to open a Bible and look for something good, and having found it, give God thanks for what it is, thus giving him praise. Thereby we can receive and be filled.
    We can be satisfied. Doing this daily we will be nourished. Growing up in him we can be led by the holy Spirit unto the kingdom above where our Lord is.

    Also, an inexpensive pocket electronic concordance is helpful to find verses which will help us along the way, often times God making some good connections for us with such help of the holy Spirit.

  3. I didn’t listen to the whole show before I posted about E-sword.. I now know… Logos is supporting Dr. Brown’s Ministry so if you can Please buy from them using logos.com/line of fire.. great software blessing to DR. Brown’s Ministry ..win win..

    Peace Love Joy:)

  4. i just went to logos.com. this is information OVERLOAD. i get like 2 billion products. i just want a simple bible with maybe a simple explanation of what is going, with really easy to use cross references.

    i tried some versions online – they are incredibly tedious and time consuming when looking at cross references. it would be really cool to see all the cross references on a single page. anybody got some easy to use cross referencing software?

    btw i highly recommend reading the bible while reading all cross references at the same time. it’s amazing.

    I am wondering how you can do this in the absence of a temple and its purification offerings. Maybe you can abstain from the fruit of the vine and let your hair grow, but it would seem impossible to be “nazirite” in the purely scriptural sense.


  6. Ben,

    I have been using Olive Tree Bible Software. It has multiple translations, maps and commentaries. You can open up two translations simultaneously and as you move through one, the other will show the parallel verses. It has dictionaries, commentaries etc.

    You can add notes to any verse, create categories for study and tags, do searches etc. Notes, tags etc. can be uploaded to a server so that if your device ever dies, you can recover everything.You can also tap on words and will get a pop-up displaying the word in the orignal languages if you purchase Bibles with Strongs.

    I don’t think it has quite the muscle that Logos has, but it also doesn’t have the price as well. You can purchase just the translations that you find useful. You can also build your library up slowly as you can afford it. You can get basic Bibles for 20 to 40 dollars. No payment plans necessary.

    You can be selective in terms of commentaries, dictionaries and the like. In a world of increasingly liberal seminaries and authors, I rather prefer to be selective about such resources. For example, a liberal dictionary may put a spin on words that favors a liberal translation. It works well with Ipad and Iphone devices.

    For online BlueletterBible.org is a good resource. You can search and see any passage in multiple translations including Greek and Hebrew. They also have an App for handheld devices.

    Hope that helps.

  7. Well, I didn’t think logos would give a payment plan to someone outside of America, but I was wrong!

    I’m looking forward to getting some serious study done with “Original Languages”. 🙂

  8. thx all. olive tree and online bible are new to me. i’ll try them both and keep the better one. I luv Blue letter bible but find it tedious sometimes.

    i thought i might share with everyone:


    i also like biblegateway.com very easy to search. plus it has some commentaries.
