I was sent a blog by a critic of Christianity listing what he believed were “errors” in the Bible. I used it as a framework for this series of video studies clarifying the errors of the Bible’s critics. We will feature one of those studies weekly through the whole series.

Study #2. “Jonah’s Whale” (6:45) There is no contradiction in the Bible when Matthew 12:40 says Jonah was swallowed by a “whale”, while in Jonah 1:17 it says he was swallowed by a “great fish”. When the facts are examined it becomes clear that the error is in the failure of the critics to look more carefully at the evidence.

Reformation and Toy Soldiers, What Is Reformed Theology?


The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies


In the mid 1500’s Geneva became a gathering place for those who wanted to return Christianity to its biblical foundations. Under the leadership of John Calvin scholars, ministers, and concerned students gathered to compare all they believed and practiced with God’s word as preserved in Scripture.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies was founded in 1993 to continue that practice in our own period of history. Our desire is to apply God’s word to our own lives and to the world around us. Our goal is to reform (reshape) our lives to fit the mold that our Creator has given us in his written word.
