A Venue for Biblical studies for the Ekklesia
Approved worker Trusting in YHVH Receiving the Word The Word of God Growing in Grace and Knowledge


This web site is a venue for biblical studies based on a common understanding of God the Father and Jesus Christ that is not restricted by the culture and environment of being a church. There is only one Ekklesia but there are many corporations. The historical environment of the Churches of God is generally that you could believe whatever you wanted as long as you kept it to yourself, but open differences were not going to be considered. If we are growing in biblical knowledge and understanding, then what we teach now, and in the future, will be somewhat different from what we taught in the past. Also, what one teacher offers may be different from another one. We are imperfect beings with imperfect understanding so a range of perspectives will be shared. In the end though, all teachings must be weighed against the consistency of the record of scripture.

Recent Study Topics

The Biblical Topics found on this site present studies into the Word of God. Each study may offer a pdf study paper, a video, an audio track, a YouTubeTM video, or optional support material. Three recent studies including the Why of AShortWork, our weekly Sabbath Study, and a featured Study Topic are listed below. Visit our Topics Page for additional material.

Most of us who plan to contribute to this venue are near the end of our service as members of the Ekklesia simply because of age and strength. As a result, considering the present distress in society and the ongoing deception and distress in the churches of God, we don't consider this is the time or place to stand aside. True unity is not with each other, it is with YHVH and Jesus Christ. If numbers were a consideration then most of us could have just stayed in the organization we were in when we were called.

Featured Study
Passover: Ceremony or a Meal?


Presenter: Glen White

This study has pointedly reminded me that the prism, or paradigm, through which I previously viewed these scriptures, was taught and accepted without question or any true biblical scholarship. Hopefully, the washing of water by the Word will eventually cleanse the "stream of understanding" of the residual, obscuring silt.




Matthew 11:28-30 NLT

Then Jesus said, "come unto me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light."
