➤ NOV 2019 (YouTube) —If I be Lifted Up. A 30-minute video. Jesus said, "If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself" (John 12:32). His crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension, are the three ways he did this, and each holds an attraction for us.
➤NOV 2019 (YouTube) —The Inscription on the Cross on the Cross. A 30-minute video. There is more in Pilate's inscription on the cross of Christ than meets the eye. It seems even Pilate intended more to be read into it than he actually wrote. The sign said, “Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews.” What are the implications?
➤NOV 2019 (YouTube) —What Jesus Accomplished on the Cross. A 30-minute video. There are three words: perfection, punishment, and price; which outline the wonderful things that Jesus accomplished for us by dying on the cross. These are necessary accomplishments which we could not possibly have done for ourselves.
➤NOV 2019 (YouTube) —The Four Deaths People Can Die. A 30-minute video. How many times have you died? That is not a silly question. There are four kinds of death (including physical death) mentioned in the Bible.

The first two pages in the series have been done.

➤ OCT 2019, (YouTube) Why Be Religious (1) Five Facts About Death —Half hour video. In this lesson, we look at a single Bible verse "It is appointed for men once to die, and after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27) which tells us five facts about death... Knowing these facts helps us understand and prepare for death. We break this text up into five portions, each of which implies a certain fact about death.
➤ OCT 2019, (YouTube) Wonderful Words (6) Predestination —Half hour video. The Bible teaches that God has chosen some people to be saved, and these elect cannot, in that state, possibly be lost. People who choose to be in that elect state and remain so, are certainly predestined to salvation and eternal life, because they obey God and yield to God’s will.
➤ OCT 2019, (YouTube) Wonderful Words (5) Redemption —Half hour video. In this lesson, we are thinking about redemption. This is the Bible word for what God demanded in order to save us —the payment of a price. In this lesson, we consider why a price had to be paid, why we couldn't pay it ourselves, and how Jesus paid it for us.
➤ OCT 2019, Ron’s Report —Ron Graham’s ministry report for the 3rd quarter (Jul-Aug-Sep) 2019 is now available online. It includes the quarter’s statistics for the simplybible.com website.
➤ SEP 2019, What if They'd said No? —The story in Acts 22, of Saul’s conversion to become the apostle Paul, shows a chain of command: God to Jesus, Jesus to Ananias, Ananias to Saul. All three men obeyed the directives given them. We ask, What if they had not?
➤ SEP 2019, The Greatest Question Ever —It is no exaggeration to say that that the greatest question ever asked is, “What must I do to be saved?” We must ask what God would have us do. Nothing we do on our own initiative, without God's commandment, will be effective.
➤ SEP 2019, (YouTube) Wonderful Words (4) Reconciliation —Half hour video. This video is the fourth of six in a series called Wonderful Words, explaining special words in the Bible. This lesson considers reconciliation or atonement. Because of sin and our own fault, we became separated, alienated, estranged from God. We became enemies at war with God. Jesus offered himself and shed his blood as a sacrifice so we could find mercy from God and come back home to him.
➤ SEP 2019, (YouTube) Wonderful Words (3) Sanctification —Half hour video. This video is the third of six in a series called Wonderful Words, explaining special words in the Bible. This lesson considers the Bible words sanctify, sanctification, and saint. We show how sanctification is connected to purification, and we are sanctified when our sins are forgiven. Sanctification is not a later second blessing. While purification is our main focus, we also briefly consider other marks of the saints (sanctified or holy people).
