Welcome to Jones Road!

What is the Jones Road church? We are a group of Christians who have made it our aim to be no more and no less than that which we read about in the New Testament. We are “of Christ” because He is our Savior and King and our goal is to allow His word to control all we do.

Our building is located nine miles east of Athens, Alabama on Jones Road. If you are in North Alabama, please stop by and visit us. You are always welcome!!

Who Wrote the Bible? (Part 2)

By John R. Gibson

The Preacher said in Ecclesiastes 12:12, “Of making many books there is no end,” and since his time countless more books have been written, but the Bible claims it should be granted a unique position, head-and-shoulders above all others as the divinely inspired, all-sufficient guide for man (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). While its divine inspiration may be seen in various ways, we are seeking to emphasize its divine origin by noting how that even those who claim allegiance to the Bible clearly could not be the ones responsible for producing it.

Who Wrote the Bible? (Part 1)

By John R. Gibson

 

The Bible makes the bold claim within its pages that it originated with God. In 2 Tim. 3:16, 17 Paul wrote of the Scriptures’ ability to properly guide man and linked that to its origin. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” We find a similar claim made when the apostle Peter argues that the prophecies of old were not the result of anyone’s private or personal thinking, but instead “holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21).

Who Sinned?

By John R. Gibson

 

Israel was at the edge of Canaan when twelve leaders were told to spy out the land and then report back on both the inhabitants of Canaan and the nature of the land itself (Num. 13:1-20). As most readers are aware, they were unanimous in reporting that the land did indeed flow with “milk and honey” (Num. 13:27), but when it came to the people and their fortifications the spies were divided. While Joshua and Caleb affirmed that the land could be taken, ten of the spies gave a bad report, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we….and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight” (Num. 13:31-33).
