Part 96 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says, there are 3 women in the book of Revelation that are actually representative of either a group of people, a city or something else.

Part 94 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that Revelation is the only book of the Bible that nobody decided to write.

Part 93 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson believes Revelation is one of the greatest books in the Bible. Without it, the Bible would be incomplete.

Part 90 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says the letters of John are grandfatherly letters because John was an old man - and the only apostle to die of old age.

Part 86 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that, although written to dispersed Jews, the book of James is very applicable to Christians today. It is a very practical word for our everyday lives. James was not focusing on doctrine or faith but was giving Christian advice to counter poor attitudes. As many of h…
 
Part 85 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that James is concerned with practical Christianity.

Part 83 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that Hebrews is a very ‘Jewish’ letter and is appreciated by Jewish readers whereas Gentiles need familiarity with the Old Testament scriptures.

Part 82 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says, though these letters were addressed to individuals, they were all about the churches they were trying to help, and these were quite different.

Part 81 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson begins by explaining why these letters to Timothy & Titus differ from others by Paul.

Part 80 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series In continuing his talk on Paul’s 2 letters to the Thessalonians, David Pawson shows why their hope was shaky instead of being certain.

Part 79 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that the letters to the Thessalonians were the first part of the New Testament to be written.

Part 78 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series This study is a must for every Christian.

Part 76 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series ‘A colony of heaven’ Paul termed the Philippian church though it was in a Roman- occupied city.

Part 75 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says the best defense against heresy is solid, good teaching and that’s what Paul gave to the Ephesians via this letter, protecting them against false teaching.

Part 74 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that many Christians love the letter to the Galatians while others don’t like it.

Part 72 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson points out that Corinth was a Greek city & the ancient Greeks separated the spiritual from the physical.

Part 71 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson shows from 1 & 2 Corinthians that the early church, as in every other era, was not perfect.

Part 70 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series In Part 1 of Romans, David Pawson showed that the reason for Paul to write to the Roman church was the tension between Jew and Gentile within the fellowship.

Part 69 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that Paul’s letter to the Romans is the longest letter we have from the ancient world, and is very important.

Part 64 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that while Luke’s gospel is the best loved because of some of its stories, it is the least well known.

Part 63 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David Pawson says that the gospels are essentially news bulletins, better read aloud.

Mark and …
 
Part 62 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series Two of the 4 gospels were written for sinners (Mark & Luke) and two for Christians.

Part 61 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series David begins by speaking about how God meant us to read the Bible.

Part 60 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series In studying Malachi, David Pawson points out 3 aspects of God we need to understand: He is the Creator from whom we come, the King under whom we live & the Judge to whom we go.

Part 56 of the David Pawson 'Unlocking the Bible' Podcast series While some prophets had a lifetime of prophesying, David Pawson says that Haggai spoke for only 3 months.
