Local pastor publishes second book

MEEKER I Students of the Holy Bible know it isn’t always an easy book to interpret.
Local pastor and author Dr. J.D. Watson hopes to answer some of those difficult Bible questions with the publication of his second book, “Truth on Tough Texts.”
“Back in August 2005, our church began a monthly ministry, Truth on Tough Texts, a publication dedicated to addressing Scriptures that have historically been debated, are particularly difficult to understand, or have generated questions among believers. Each monthly issue has gone out to several hundred readers, both in hard copy and email delivery. Over the last couple of years, several readers have requested that these studies appear in book form. Truth on Tough Texts: Expositions of Challenging Scripture Passages is the result. It not only serves those readers as a quick reference to these articles, but will also introduce these studies to a larger audience. It is the premier book from our new publishing ministry: Sola Scriptura Publications,” Watson said.
Some of the “tough texts” he tackles? Was Matthias God’s choice to replace Judas (Acts 1:15–26)? What is the identity of those “sons of God” referred to in Genesis 6? Are the “angels” of the seven churches real angels or pastors (Rev. 1:20)? Is there a so-called call to ministry (Eph. 4:11; 1 Tim. 3:1)? Is “deaconess” a valid church office (1 Tim. 3:11)? What is the “sealing” of the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13–14)? Is “regeneration” absent from the Old Testament, being a New Testament doctrine only (Isa. 57:15; Eph. 2:1)? What do other terms that appear in Scripture mean, such as: “fall away” (Heb. 6:4–6) “old man” (Rom. 6:6), and “new creature” (2 Cor. 5:17)?
The almost 600-page book includes four indexes for ease of reference and is available as a hard copy and in a Kindle edition.
“We hope this book will be a blessing to many,” Watson stated.
