    1 – O.T. Bible Story: Love Abraham sacrificing Isaac. So much love in this story. BUT had Isaac been a teenager at the time this all happened, it might have been easier for Abraham that we thought. hmmm Just a thought.

    2 – Bible Character: Of course Jesus, but not counting him, I’d say: Peter. He was SO human like me. Brash, speak before you think and impulsive.

    3 – Favorite single scripture: Easy … 2 Corinthians 5:21

    4 – Favorite Chapter: John 13, It shows of the heart of Jesus and his commishion to his followers.

    5 – Gospel of Mark

    6 – Proverbs… I read from it everyday.

    7 – Currently reading from the New Century Version, but I use the NIV 90% of the time.

    Thanks for sharing …

    Yay! I love surveys! Believe it or not, I was actually gonna do a Bible one, but yours is no doubt better, so I’ll defer to you. 😉 I really have a hard time picking favorites, but I’ll give it a shot …

    djg … I so wanted to use Samson too. He’s amazing. So strong in so many areas and so week in so many too.

    I love the story of him killing 1000 Philistines with the jaw bone of a donkey. Me and a friend were discussing the other day, “what the 1000th Philistine was thinking as he stepped over his 999 dead buddies.” Probably not “I THINK I CAN TAKE HIM.”

  8. Trey Morgan says:

  27. The Preacher's Household: says:

    Trey-
    When I teach on women in the Bible I always include Rizpah and Abishag (1 Kings 1:15) because most women feel they play very insignificant roles when they are really do a great service to others.
    Kathy

    Thank you.

  30. Gallagher says:

    1 – Favorite O.T. Bible Story — David and Goliath; not only did the little guy win, but his faith in God was bigger than any earthyl giant.

    2 – Favorite Bible Character — Jesus, then Caleb. I love Jesus for obvious reasons, but I love Caleb because of the fire in his bones. At 80+ years old he still conquered the mountain. That ie why my son’s name is Caleb.

    3 – Favorite Scripture – Matthew 11.28-30

    4 – Favorite Chapter – John 17

    5 – Favorite Book of the Bible — Luke

    6 – What are you reading from the Bible? — Philippians then our daily Bible reading

    7 – Favorite Bible translation — ESV

  31. Gallagher says:

    Trey,

    I saw you use the NCV some, how do you like it? I have it as a part of my Logos Bible study software and i use it frequently to quote fomr. I find it interesting and very meaningful and current in places.

    Just a thought…

  32. Trey Morgan says:

    Gallagher … I’m liking the NCV. I use it mainly for reading. I find it to a good change for reading. Some times when I read out of the same version over and over it gets predictable. But I have really liked it.

  33. Michael says:

    (1) Elijah on Mt. Carmel
    (2) Paul
    (3) Philippians 1:27
    (4) Romans 12
    (5) It seems to change all the time. Right now Philippians or 1 Peter.
    (6) I’ve spent a lot of time in John and 1-2 Peter lately.
