Pro tip: If you want to dominate that conversation check out Roland Bainton's "Here I Stand." It's a quick, readable, excellent biography of Martin Luther. If you want to utterly bomb that conversation check out "Breaking Dawn" by Stephenie Meyer.

Who decided what books should go in the Bible? The answer might surprise you. This is number three in my set on the nuts and bolts of the Bible. If you like what's going on here, you can support the Ten Minute Bible Hour on Patreon at patreon.com/TMBH
Obviously there are a few passages in the Bible that purport to be the direct spoken words of God, but who actually put pen to paper to write the 66 books of the Bible? This is the second installment in a set of videos on the nuts and bolts of the Bible.

The Bible is a book that casts a long shadow and is worth understanding whether you're into it or not. In this set of videos we'll take an honest look at how the Bible works in terms of what's it's made of, how it was assembled, how it gets translated, how it gets read, and why some people think it's from God. In this one, I'm going super basic and talking about the Bible is going for at the most elemental level.
This one is a review and evaluation of Acts. What do we make of Acts, was it a success? Where is the reader supposed to go after this?
In Acts 28 Paul finally makes it Rome. But we don't entirely get closure.
Like I said in the title, in Acts 27, dude completely loses his ship.
In Acts 26 Paul relies on his story to accomplish something redemptive in a difficult spot.
So many people want to knife Paul to death, but in Acts 25 he makes a bold play to avoid probably knifing.
In Acts 24, Paul's defending himself in front of an important guy in Caesarea. Then a moment of courtroom drama turns throw-up-a-little-bit-in-your-mouth worthy when lawyers start lawyering in the dirtiest fakest ways.
Paul's in a tough spot as he faces his enemies in a hearing that wants to turn ugly, but he's a got a social grenade up his sleeve and he knows how to use it.
The lousy 8-bit/midi cover of "Grenade" by Bruno Mars at the end is something I cobbled together with a couple of different programs. Obviously he and his people own the rights to the real one.

Paul was getting swarmed by brain-hungry zombies in Acts 21, and now he has to choose how to respond to being confronted with the possibility of being murdered by the zombie mob.
In Acts 21 Paul faces an insane living zombie horde who literally try to rip him limb from limb.
In Acts 20:1-12, Paul was saying a very long goodbye and a kid got so bored and tired that he fell out the window and died. Then some other stuff happened.
In Acts 19:21-41, a protest against Jesus and Paul spirals into a big stupid riot in Ephesus. This raises questions about modern day protesting.
Stefan Wyatt was kind enough to give me permission to butcher his ridiculously good arrangement and cover of Holiday/Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day which you can check out here:

I tried my hand at impressing people with name dropping once, and the results were horrible. In Acts 19 some guys make the same mistake and it goes even worse.
In Acts 19, Paul's in Ephesus talking with some guys who sort of believe the same stuff he does. They're followers of John the Baptist, and don't get all the stuff about Jesus yet, so Paul explains. What's cool is that instead of getting into a big stupid argument, they listen and learn, and everything about everything is better as a result.
