And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

A warm howdy to all you Bible students, and welcome to this experimental online Bible study.
All is well here in Tyler as we work our way through the various frustrations of moving. Our new offices should be finished in a couple of weeks and we have already got boxes out putting stuff in them for the move. I am trying to figure a way to be out of town when all this comes down.
But, we are getting more room and more efficiency. I’m just glad I don’t have to move my home.
We are getting some really nice emails these days and hardly any that are critical. I got a condemnation this week for using the NIV. It is odd, but most of the rare critical emails come from King James only advocates. I need those folks though, because it is not a good thing to have everyone speak well of you.
We have had some 575 now who have downloaded the first Bible Study. We will never know for certain how many are listening in, but it is obviously worth doing for all the saints.
