TRUTH for January 2019 is now available. We are thankful to Roger Campbell for his study of the Bible and his interest in helping others better to appreciate and know God’s Book. Will you please consider the four excellent studies for January. Listed below are the titles and first paragraphs of the four one-page articles found in TRUTH for January of 2019.
Prophets of God in the First Century Church
Fulfilled Bible prophecy is evidence that the Bible’s message came from the mind of God. We thrill to read of the foretelling of the virgin birth of the Christ (Isaiah 7), the coming fall of Babylon (Isaiah 13), and the influential role of King Cyrus (Isaiah 44). Each of those memorable prophecies is found in the Old Testament. But what about prophets in the New Testament church? To read more download here: Truth1901.
Lessons We Can Learn from David Sparing King Saul
King Saul was granted the privilege of being the first human king to rule over the nation of Israel. The message of 1 Samuel 18 shows how the relationship between Saul and a young man named David was soured. When Saul heard some in Israel praising David more than they praised the king himself, he was extremely upset. Saul was angry, he was afraid of David, he kept his eye on him, he counted David as an enemy, and more than once he tried to kill him. To put it mildly, in his dealings with David, Saul was not a very nice person. To study SEVEN lessons from this Bible account, download: Truth1901.
Do You Find Worship Boring?
“Boring is defined as someone or something dull or uninteresting” [ http://www.yourdictionary.com ]. As humans, we find certain things and certain people interesting; at the same time, hearing someone discuss other topics may put us to sleep, as we have zero interest in those matters.

1 Corinthians 15.1-8—The Gospel
The theme of the fifteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians is “The Resurrection.” Paul writes about Jesus’ own resurrection from the dead, he notes the consequences which would follow if there were no resurrection, and he speaks of the future resurrection which will occur when the Christ comes again.

We encourage you to read and be edified by these four articles. Find them by clicking here… Truth1807
Truth 2017 is now available on this site. One of my friends whom I truly admire, respect, and appreciate is Roger D. Campbell. He has spent many years in the foreign mission field. During that time he took it upon himself to learn two of the most difficult languages on earth: Mandarin Chinese and Russian. I was present in the assembly when he preached his first sermon in the Russian language in Kiev.
Roger is a great student of the Bible. For many months I have received from him his monthly publication, Truth, by Email. On the previous Maple Hill website I posted many of his Truth issues (with permission). Since we now have this new site I am combining all of last years’ issues into one PDF file. I then will begin posting the monthly.
Each issue of Truth 2017 contains four one-page articles. Each will have an Old Testament article and one New Testament article, plus two other topical articles. I am listing those Bible text articles with page numbers as found in the combined issue. I am listing them in Bible order. Please download this PDF, read and study it, and then tell others where they can come to receive it, as well.
