David Pawson’s Online Teaching Library is just wonderful for those who would like to work through the Bible as a whole or certain parts. For Families or people individually, conducive for Bible Study.
We don’t necessarily agree with every aspect of his teaching but in a broad sense we can condone it.

The Old Testament is actually a library of 39 books written over a period of 1000 years with most of it covering 2000 years of history before Christ. David Pawson shows how they fit together. With teaching on any one topic scattered all over the Bible, every text is in the context of the book, and every book is in the context of history. God speaks into particular situations, so the time and place give the text its meaning. It features the struggle between the two world powers in the ancient Middle East. The first 5 books are on God’s law and are the most important books in the Old Testament as they are the foundation of the Bible and help us to understand the rest of it. Next are the prophets – prophetic history through which God speaks to us today. Prophetic history is different from other history. All history books are based on 2 principles, selection and connection. When writing a history book, writers first select what to put in and what to leave out. They then show the connection between these events, i.e. what led to what. Prophetic history however, selects only what is important to God. Lastly are the writings, which are stories, poetry and songs.
Judges and Ruth
Ezra and Nehemiah
Song of Songs
Obadiah and Joel
David begins by speaking about how God meant us to read the Bible. He says that somebody has damaged our Bibles by adding chapter and verse numbers and we have become ‘text people’. The gospels are not strictly biographies as more than one-third of the text describes the death of Jesus. David says that they are more like extended news bulletins. The writers had witnessed events and they reported on them. Why are there 4 gospels? David compares them. He looks at this book from two angles: who was Matthew hoping to reach and what was his intention. Matthew presents Jesus as the king of the Jews, particularly recording what Jesus said. Jesus was popular in the north of Israel but unpopular in the south where he was eventually killed. Matthew uses Mark as his framework but adds much more, beginning with the conception and birth of Jesus. He has 5 sermons included, collected under 5 themes, interspersed with Jesus’ deeds which illustrated his sermons. Matthew aimed toward Jewish readers, referring often to how Jesus’ life fulfilled Old Testament scriptures, but it is for gentiles as well. David believes this gospel brings Jew and Christian together.

We don’t necessarily agree with every aspect of his teaching but in a broad sense we can condone it. His view on the the Harpazo and placement thereof is definitely not correct.
We don’t agree with his position that the believers go through the whole “Great Tribulation” which is the second half of the 70th week of Daniel. We have it currently that it seems more probable from Scripture that the “Rapture / Harpazo” will be between the 6/7 Seal just before “The Day of The Lord”.
