This weeks highlighted free resource for The Bible Study App is Philo of Alexandria which gives a great glimpse into the first century world of Jesus and the early church.
A contemporary of Josephus and early Christianity, the Hellenized Jewish philosopher and exegete Philo Judaeus provides a fascinating historical glimpse into the world of the apostles and early Church. Philo based his doctrines on the Hebrew Bible, and was a scholar of Jewish law. Philo considered the Bible as the source of revelation and as the repository of philosophical truth. His writings have been invaluable to Christians and scholars seeking a better understanding of the world of Jesus and the early Church. This resource was translated from the Greek by C.D. Yonge.

George Washington was a man of noble character. He is remembered by many as a warrior, patriot and the first president of the United States of America. His relationship with his God undoubtedly played a big part in making him the man he was. In 1891 a manuscript of some of his favorite prayers, written in his own hand, was sold at auction. It is not known if young George (who was twenty years old at the time) authored these prayers or copied them from another source. They were eventually published in a book, George Washington: The Christian, by William J. Johnson. As you read these prayers you discover how much George was influenced by the Bible. He was clearly humble before his God and aware of how dependent he was on Him for his every breath. Today historians are trying to rewrite the history of our nation to remove any references to God. As you read these prayers, you have an opportunity to view some original documents that tell the real story, at least in the case of George Washington.
All of Grace is one of his most widely known and best-selling written works. It is a chaptered work, longer and more in-depth than any of his sermons. Subtitled “An Earnest Word with Those Who Are Seeking Salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ,” All of Grace is Spurgeon’s fullest explanation of the process of God’s redemption of Christian souls. It is also an inspiring gift of encouragement to believers in their Christian walk—a “fountain by the wayside” where Spurgeon hoped many will find refreshment. Its plain and simple language rings with his concern for the souls of all humanity.

This week’s free E-book for The Bible Study App is The Way into the Holiest – Expositions of the Epistle to the Hebrews by F.B. Meyer. Here are some thoughts from the author:
The epistle to the Hebrews bears no name of author, or designation of church. But it needs neither. In every sentence we can detect the Authorship of the Holy Ghost: and feel that it has a message not to one age, but to all; not to one community, but to the universal Church.
There are two strong tendencies flowing around us in the present day: the one, to minimize the substitutionary aspect of the death of Christ; the other, to exaggerate the importance of mere outward rite. To each of these the study of this great Epistle is corrective. We are taught that our Lord’s death was a Sacrifice. We are taught also that we have passed from the realm of shadows into that of realities.
These chapters are altogether inadequate for the treatment of so vast a theme; but such as they are, they are sent forth, in dependence on the Divine Blessing, in the fervent hope that they may serve to make more clear and plain to those who would find and enter it, the Way into the Holiest of all. –F.B. MEYER
