Lord willing, I will be posting a great many more commentaries and general files as I get them typed in from my hand written notes.

A problem with writing everything down is that it leaves no "wiggle room" for changes in belief. Some of these things were put together many years ago, 1988, and my understanding may have changed as time and study proceeded. You may contact me with questions.


I have all the commentaries for this book completed, but it will take a while to review all of the files, and upload them. I will put them up as I review them.

These files are presented without serious editing, though I did quickly run the spell checker through them. There is an abundance of good teaching material here. They are in PDF, for that is the easiest and quickest way to make them available, and for printing out.

Several of these are BIG files, so allow plenty of time for downloading.

The Book of Deuteronomy is on this page


A word of explanation concerning the Deuteronomy lessons.

The Bible study lessons of our day generally seem to be very shallow, studying over and over a few basic stories and doctrines. Milk must be replaced with the meat of God’s law-word. I am afraid that if the New Testament authors were around today, they would have the same complaint and exhortation as found in Hebrews 5:10-6:3. We must get back to teaching the law of God to his people. It is hard to expect them to live by every word which proceeds out of the mouth of God, when that law-word of God is not within reach of the average person. It must be under­stood before it can be applied.

I search every booksellers I knew of, but I could find no studies centered around the law (Ten Commandments) of God. However, one of the storeowners suggested that I put together my own lessons, so here they are. I chose Deuteronomy because of its lack of ceremonial law, though there is much in the ceremonial law worthy of study.

The lessons are quite old, probably around 1986. Therefore, there will be obvious mistakes in them. Though there are areas that need corrections, one should have little problem using them. Just watch for the necessary corrections as you go through the lessons, as well as badly misplaced punctuations. I took an English grammar course at a local community college since I put these together, and I am almost embarrassed to make them public. But here they are, warts and all. I would love to go through and edit them now 30 years later, but that would take hundreds of hours, making it an impossible task at this point in my life. No doubt there will be some material that some will not agree with, but use what you can for the glory of God. In addition, some scriptures are incorrect. I tried to make a list of corrections, but it is incomplete. We encouraged our folks to take them home for study for later discussion in Sunday School class. You have permission to copy these lessons.

This study only scratches the surface of the many applications of the Law. An in-depth study would take a lifetime and fill volumes. Here I only give some good starting places that can easily be pursued as much as one desires.

The basis of these lessons is The Institutes of Biblical Law (R. J. Rushdoony, Craig Press). That “text book” would be very beneficial with these lessons. (Ross House Books, PO Box 67, Vallecito, CA 95251.) I have attempted to give credit where credit is due, but be­cause of the way I put these together, I have missed some of the proper credits. One of our ladies "If it is true it is not new and if it is new it is not true." This statement is true of the material contained herein. I took many things, however, and tried to follow them through to some logical conclusions, many of which are not according to the traditions of the elders. Therefore, these lessons should be studied with attitude found in Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. That is, submit our minds to the Spirit of God, that He might leads us into His truth.

Probably one of the most difficult things one will face is laying aside tradi­tional teaching for God's Word, which I had to do as the Lord brought me out of Armenian dispensationalism in the early 1980s. Submitting all of our thinking to the Spirit through His word must be done if we expect to return to the Lord God. From beginning to end, the law-word of God is one word from one God whose character changes not. His command-word gives us His laws of holiness, so His people can be holy even as He is holy. The more we study His word, the more we find that it truly is “one word from one God.

Nothing is Neutral, nor are these lessons. These are written from the Orthodox, Reformed view (1689 Baptist Confession, or even the Westminster Confession with exception of two points) that emphasizes the total AUTHORITY of the Lord Jesus Christ and his law-word over all the things that are to be done for His glory—economics, social, religious, occupations, &c. These lessons emphasis His people’s victory they have in their resurrected Mediator, as He now sits on His throne waiting for the Father to subdue kingdoms of this world under His footstool. Whey shall become the kingdoms of the Lord and His Christ. That victory will not be through any carnal might nor power, but by my spirit saith the Lord of hosts: By the power of His sovereign grace His Army shall obtain the victory against the gates of hell.

 New Testament

The Book of John is a series put together for our folks for home-Bible studies. They are primarily to go into the home of an unsaved person interested in the Lord enough to study His word‚ but if a church has been influenced by a false gospel‚ we strongly recommend using these for maybe Sunday School class or something similar. These are designed to force people to face to truth of the Word of God in the area of Christ's atoning work. They are really quite simple: one lesson per chapter of John. We have seen several converted as they have gone through these‚ which was their purpose. These lessons emphasize salvation to give the Holy Spirit a chance to deal with those who are unsaved but interested. The question is: If a person does not have enough interest in the Lord to study something like this‚ do they have enough interest to be saved by praying a prayer? I think not! They are meant to counter the ‘pray this prayer' type of salvation with which we are overrun today.
