This site is a teaching ministry of the Disciples Global Network designed to provide you with detailed studies from the letters of Paul, Peter, John, and the book of Hebrews. My goal is to help Christians better understand the original apostolic traditions preserved for us in the epistles of the New Testament.
My name is David Maas and I write about the New Testament and related subjects. I am educated in the history, languages, and transmission of the Bible. My personal mission is to understand the literary and historical contexts of biblical passages - Who was the original recipient of the letter, and why did Paul or Peter, or John write it? Only by appreciating the original setting of a letter can we better understand its contents.
I reside in the city of Gardnerville in the state of Nevada. All my posts are available free of charge. None of them are copyrighted. Please copy, reuse, and distribute any of my articles or portions thereof as you see fit. If you have questions or comments or are interested in contributing to this work, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at email@example.com.
