The Sum of Thy Word Is Truth
A Daily Bible Teaching Radio Program From Jim Andrews: Pastor, Teacher, and Author

Introduction to Proverbs

The Proverbs are all about wisdom in living. We must live in this messed up world and until we pass away, we can elect to live wisely or foolishly, to make our path easier or harder, to honor God or dishonor Him. The Proverbs tell us the way life works at the practical level and how we should adjust to its realities. If at times its maxims seem repetitious, that is not a mistake, but by design, for some wisdom bears repeating for those who are slow to get it.

Introduction to the Beatitudes

The Beatitudes of our Lord in the Sermon on the Mount have been misunderstood by some. Actually they fit under the heading of what today might be called “profiling.” Jesus is “profiling” the manners and morals of those who are truly His disciples (and therefore “blessed”) as opposed to those like the scribes and Pharisees who were thought by that generation to be really pious and in great standing with God. Far from it, Jesus teaches indirectly. Actually these are the attributes of those who please God and have the gracious prospect of reward.

Introduction to 1 Samuel

In reading biblical historical narratives many readers may be ignorant of the fact that always the protagonist (or main Actor) in them is God, not the human characters so prominently featured in their pages. Always remember that the Scriptures represent not just the one authoritative written revelation from God, but the Bible also represents the […]


Hebrews 13:9

In church history, our day is not unique in terms of the ever-present peril of false teachers and false teachings. However in this digital age with 1001 sources of information or disinformation, believers are more easily than ever exposed to heresy parading under the banner of “Christian ministry.” Combine that accessibility with massive biblical illiteracy […]


Introduction to Revelation

The Book of Revelation is a favorite Bible study for all those who look forward to our Lord’s return and the events surrounding it on all sides. Because of its literary genre (apocalyptic – rich in symbolism, some of it internally interpreted, much not) the book contains some mystery and tons of fascination for students […]
