Collected Works of B. Cobbey Crisler

A note from Janet Crisler

Many thanks to those of you who sincerely wish to pursue your Biblical studies, using my husband’s research and devotion to the original texts. After considerable and helpful discussions with our website designer, the way forward in order to control preservation of Cobbey Crisler’s work is NOT via an internet “download” but for me to publish here in England where I live.

Shipping and handling from the UK is expensive and must be charged according to weight at the Post Office. I will send a quick email as soon as the PO calculates it.

Each talk is unique and very special. Enjoy them all as you progress in the collection. With best wishes, Janet V. Crisler

Biblical Concepts
106 pages. From two talks.

Freedom: A Biblical Definition (from a 3 hr. talk)
According to the Bible there is a necessity to be God’s servant –(the word in Greek means “slave”!) Why does the Bible define freedom in the vocabulary of subjection? Explore Scriptural texts that link man fetterlessly to “the Spirit of the Lord” where, we are told “is liberty.”

Glory: Divine Nature in the Bible (from a 3 hr. talk)
What is this state called glory? Is it a present reality or just pious hope? Moses’ face shone, Jesus was transfigured… far from limiting “glory” to a select few. The Bible states God’s purpose in “bringing many sons unto glory” and assures, “then shall we also appear with him in glory.”

How Christ Jesus Saw Himself (from a 3 hr. talk)
In John’s Gospel, Jesus is recorded as saying, “If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.” “Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true.” “I and my Father are one… my Father is greater than I.” Are these blatant contradictions or is there deep spiritual consistency in context?
