The Biblical Rembrandt presents the human Rembrandt in the context of his faith. That faith can be studied only by an intense look at this paintings, etchings, and drawings depicting biblical persons, scenes, and moments. About Rembrandt's life, we know very little that is certain, but he has left us abundant testimony of his sensitive reading of the Bible. Written from the perspective of a biblical specialist who has pored over Rembrandt's testimony, Durham writes not for the art historian, but for those who love the Bible, for those who love Rembrandt, and for those who want to know more about the meeting of this Dutchman and his biblical text. Durham confesses he has lived with the (changing) canon of Rembrandt's works for more than forty years, with the biblical texts he loved open before me. This book is the summary of that experience. Not every work of Rembrandt based on the Bible is discussed: that would have required commentary on more than 900 works. Durham has selected his favorites, the ones that seem to him most reflective of Rembrandt's faith, about 130 works in all. Each of these paintings, etchings, and drawings is reproduced in the context in which it is described, the paintings in full color. Where important details are difficult to see, they are isolated, and enlarged as necessary. In his biblical works Rembrandt invites us to read the Bible just as he read it, in personal terms: flawed, as he was; reaching, as he did; and experiencing the Bible as a book about ourselves.

"Lost Treasures of the Bible contains photographs and detailed descriptions of more than one hundred biblically significant archaeological objects housed in over twenty-five museums worldwide. Clyde Fant and Mitchell Reddish's selection of artifacts - many of them relatively unknown - illuminates the history, culture, and practices of the biblical world as a whole. Each entry also explains that particular object's relevance for understanding the Bible and locates the artifact not only at its museum site but also by its specific identification number, which is particularly valuable for smaller and lesser-known objects - true "lost treasures.""--BOOK JACKET.

“...Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six, 666.” (Revelation 13:18) I was born on 06/16/1956 (666.) I am destined, ordained, blessed and bestowed by the Lord to reveal the truth and to be an instrument in restoring the ancient Kingdom of Israel to its past glories as God’s covenanted people. The Kingdom of Israel had always existed in our midst but was lost and concealed from our knowledge for many centuries while we multiplied in various regions of the world. It is now the time for the Lord to restore the Kingdom of Israel as his precious and anointed people of God. God shall ultimately graft back all the Israelites worldwide to their original tree and they shall all identify themselves as the covenanted people and heirs to the blessings of God This book is a testament of God and I wrote it with the aspiration and revelation of the Lord. The Lord and his blessed Son, Jesus Christ, shall be worshipped and revered by the entire Israelites all over the world when they come to the knowledge of the truth and to the knowledge of themselves. I have proven that Africans and Europeans are indeed the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and are the covenanted people of God. Both blacks and whites shall rise and grow together and they shall both be the blessed people of God from henceforward. This is the end of time when the whole world shall be renewed and would be led by an entirely new perception as the authenticated Israelites. This book has established that task. It is the era when Satan shall be tied down for a thousand years.

Jack Gillcrest is a skilful painter who succumbs to the dangerous attractions of art forgery, descending through increasingly challenging fakes to an active role in the art heist of the century. For all his skill in painting techniques, Jack Gillcrest realises that producing a genuine work of art is beyond him, despite his artistically talented girlfriend, Grania believing that he could be a successful painter in his own right. He allows himself to be coaxed into forging the work of some of the world’s great artists and is handsomely rewarded for it, but the stakes increase when Jack is persuaded to help steal two hundred million dollars’ worth of art from a museum in Boston. Among the spoil is a superb Rembrandt – Storm on the Sea of Galilee – which taxes Jack’s forging talent to its utmost. Can Jack forge a new future for himself? Or is this a heist too far?
