I just want to say how thankful I am for all the online resources that you all make available to us . I have been studying online under John Mccarther for a number of years and I tell eveyone interested in learning to come to this website. I have learned so much and have had so many questions answered, that have enriched my life. I teach a small ladies class in our little church, and I want to teach the truth from God's Word only. Thank you for the free resources you provide. May the Lord continue to richly bless this ministry. Thank you, Toni Spangler

I am thankful and very impressed by the answer re Karaite Jews from the GTY staff. You guys actually do your homework! Yes the direct historical connection to Karaite Jews is lacking (or Very tenous) but they do have somewhat similar beliefs. And yes, the Mandaeans are VERY gnostic and John the Baptist is but an excuse to have at error. I am impressed that you would know of these at all! JR

I would like to invite comment on the commercialization of the gospel. In my simplicity I struggle to understand why gospel material is sold and not distributed freely. I refer not only to this website's shop, but to an increasing trend to sell gospel material - music, books, literature etc. Why? This has reached extremes in some quarters where I have read of people trying to copyright "prophecies" they have received. John, is all the material in your shop available as free downloads off your website?

I just received the last two volumes of MacArthur's New Testament Commentary. I added up the total pages of commentary (not the indexes and so on) and there are a total of abut 11,200 pages of commentary. No, I have not read them all! That is a lot of work. Thank-you, Pastor MacArthur, for such a great commentary. When I need to look up something, his is the first place I go to. (For the Old Testament, I go to his one-volume commentary or his Study Bible.) By the way, have you, Pastor, read all the pages?

Small error from Dr McArthur re the Sadducees. They did not die out, they remain to modern times as Karaite jews. They wear blue instead of red stripes in prayer shawl, still hold only Torah inerrant, still deny resurrection, still are few but powerful. They also still accomodate, by helping him financially, they got Hitler to declare them non-Jews! Also, BTW, the followers of John the Baptist are also still around. Saddam Hussein tried to wipe them out. They were then called "marsh Arabs" by the media. JR

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for your feedback! There are some similarities between Karaite Jews and the Sadducces, but there is no direct connection. There is debate over how strong the connection is, but a strong and direct connection seems to have been disproven by scholars (e.g. not all Karaite Jews reject an after-life).

Also, the followers of John the Baptist are called Mandaeans. But to refer to them as followers of John the Baptist is a bit misleading because, while John is given a high place in their religion, their beliefs extend far beyond Judaism (upon which John's teaching was based). Mandaeism is a gnostic religion with limited connections to Judaism.

Grace and peace,
GTY Staff
