About the Lessons

T.O.D. Johnston’s Bible study lessons are thoroughly researched and written from a layman’s perspective. The Holy Bible commentaries are based on Bible study lessons that T.O.D. taught at Paran Baptist Church (located at 1603 Johnsonville Highway, Lake City, South Carolina). T.O.D.’s “Bible Study Lessons on Various Subjects” is primarily based on a series of lessons he taught at Paran Baptist Church.

T.O.D.’s Summary of the Gospel Message – Free Online PDF Book

Author’s preface to his Holy Bible commentaries

“After reading many scholarly commentaries on different books of Scripture, it became my mental habit to sift through the minute discussions of individual words and/or phrases, and the quoting of various scholars of the past of many differing opinions, and center on the most logical and inspirational truths that remained. Thus I relied on the studied scholarship of those who had learned the original languages and had read all the previous scholars that had written to get the best possible understanding of Scripture that I, as a non-scholar, could. It seemed that most church members would not attempt to read scholarly works – but would benefit from their knowledge if presented in a plain and straightforward manner, the truths they had perceived. The following commentary is my attempt to do this. May God bless my efforts to the extent that they increase the understanding and faith of the reader.”
