My name is Rick Oden.  I have no special training on Biblical studies; I’m just a follower of Jesus and seeking the truth.  As I learn these truths, either from my own Bible studies or from the many teachers I have heard, I will be writing them down in this blog. Those who really know me, know that in the past any kind of essay writing assignments was one of my least favorite thing to do. But when you find something that you are passionate about, even this aversion to writing can be overcome.
