By His Stripes ...

This is a short study in which I intend to discuss two verses from the Bible.
So let us begin by reading these verses from the Book of Isaiah. 

Isaiah 53: 4, 5
4   Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5   But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.  (NKJV)

Jewish Oral Traditions and Christian Faith

This is only a brief introduction to the Jewish Oral Law, the Christian Traditions and the Sola Scriptura of Biblical Christianity.
Since this is a short study, I have used minimum Bible verses and examples.
Still I hope this is worthy to listen.

When we speak of the Torah or the Jewish Law, we actually refer to “two” Torahs, which are one and the same.
One is the written Torah, known as the Tanach.
The second is the Oral Torah, known as Mishna

The fall of Roman Empire and the end of the Modern World

Edward Gibbon is a historian who lived in the 18c.
His famous book is The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
The book traces Western civilization from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium.
This is a marvelous book that was published after 20 years of labor in six volumes.
The 1st volume was published in 1776 and the 6th volume in 1788–89. 
The work covers the history, from 98 AD to 1590 AD, of the Roman Empire, the history of early Christianity and then of the Roman State Church, and the history of Europe, and discusses the decline of the Roman Empire in the West and East.
