HENRY T. ANDERSON was born in Caroline County, Virginia, on the 27th of January, 1812. His parents, who were also natives of Virginia, were Baptists, though quite liberal in their views. Hence, Brother ANDERSON'S early religious training was nearly in harmony with the position he now occupies. The Bible was the text-book, and its teachings had a very powerful influence upon his youthful mind. At the age of twenty-one he made the confession, and was immersed by his elder brother, who had left the Baptists and united with the Disciples. By giving diligent attention to the study of the Scriptures, he made such rapid progress in the Divine life that he began to preach in May, 1833, not more than ten months after his baptism.
He remained in Virginia, preaching at various places in Caroline, Hanover, and some other counties, until the year 1837, when he removed to Kentucky, and for several years taught school and preached in the southern portion of the State. In November, 1847, he took charge of the Walnut-street Church in Louisville, and continued there six years. After this he was engaged for about eight years in teaching classical schools, and preaching the Gospel in various parts of the State. In December, 1861, he began to translate the New Testament, a work upon which his reputation chiefly rests. For many years he had made the New Testament original a constant study.

What can appear more paradoxical than this: to live, and yet be dead; to be dead, and yet live? How difficult, how hard to be heard,  was the word of the Messiah--"if a man keep my saying, he shall never see death." Is it possible that a believer in Christ shall never die? Jesus said to Mary, "I am the resurrection and the life; he that believ ...read
Jesus of Nazareth is the Theanthropos
"And thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins."--MATT. 1: 21.
What think you of the Christ? whose son is he? The Jews answered: The son of David. Jesus replied: How, then, does David in spirit call him Lord, saying, Jehovah said to my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, till I put thy enemies under thy feet? Th ...read
Man in the Image of God
There is not in heaven above, nor in the earth beneath, nor in the waters under the earth, an image of God, nor is there aught that is like him. The Hebrew lawgiver forbade the Jews to make any likeness of anything in heaven, or earth, or sea; and gave as a reason for it, that, when God spoke to them from the mount, no similitude was seen by them. ...read
