What has been the reaction to theses video classes?
Before these videos were available on line, I made them available to personal friends and ones I have known from my time abroad. Here are a few reactions to them:
[Comment received on the Daniel 9 “69 Weeks” video; Dec. 2019] THANK YOU. I have been studying these 4 verses for weeks now, read many different interpretations of this and have found more confusion and people trying to fit their view into these scriptures. I started reading Sir Robert Anderson’s book you mentioned and have finally found the scholarly interpretation that makes perfect sense. I have been digging through a lot of his historical detail which supports his view which does get a bit long. BUT YOU HAVE made this very concise and understandable. Thank you so much for your work and ability to present this in a way that is easy to understand. Blessings on you!
“My Bible study group LOVED your videos last night and said you made everything easy to understand. We just finished Daniel 9 and when you said at the end you hope to do the last 3 chapters soon, they all yelled yes! They say they are excellent and very easy to follow!” –From a sister in Arizona
Are you planning to do more videos?
[From August, 2017] Up till now, I have completed the videos through Daniel chapter 9. This has amounted to 6 full length videos and 3 supplementary ones. At this time I’m concentrating on getting the first 3 videos into other languages and this may take me well into 2018 to do this. But I do have it on my horizon to try to complete the rest of the book of Daniel in video. Those videos would be on Daniel chapters 10 through 12.
Do you give live classes someplace?
At this time, no. If this does work out, I’ll aim to post my calendar of this here on the site. But, if you are interested, I did do a live series of classes on the Book of Acts in Austin, Texas in 2014. Audio recordings were done of those and a blog post about these can be found here.
Are you representing any group or denomination in doing these videos?
This project has been a personal initiative of my own. I have had numerous individuals help me along the way with these videos. But this series is not funded or organized by anyone but myself.
What is your background and what are your personal beliefs about God, Jesus and things like that?
I was an atheist in my third year at the University of Texas at Austin when a series of experiences changed me into a very surprised believer in the God of Abraham. For 7 months I guess you could call me an ardent monotheist. I knew that God was real but I just didn’t know who Jesus was. After that I met some young Christians who were able to show me the message of Jesus and the plan of salvation from the Bible. Since then I have been an active Christian, most of the time outside the US. I have more about my life since then and my beliefs on the companion site, markmcmillion.com.
