Three BCF Professors have articles published in the new study Bible including former BCF Professor of Old Testament J.W. Lee authored “Enemies of Rebuilding Jerusalem,” James Newell, Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew wrote “Sorcery, Witchcraft, and Divination,” and Mark Rathel, Professor of Theology and Philosophy wrote “Temples in Corinth.”
