Top 5 on Plain Bible Teaching in 2021

As 2021 is quickly drawing to a close, it’s time for the annual “Top 5” post on Plain Bible Teaching (normally this has been the top 5 articles, but I’ve broadened that this year). Each year I like to go back and see what were the most-read articles on the site. This is always interesting to me, and hopefully is to you as well. If you missed these articles when they were originally posted, they’re definitely ones you should check out. These are the “top 5” articles based on the number of page views. And, something new this year that I haven’t thought to include before, I’m listing the “top 5” podcast episodes and YouTube videos as well.

Top 5 new articles (posted in 2021):

  1. I. B. Grubbs’ Six Rules of Biblical Hermeneutics (06.16.21)
  2. The Limitations of Man (02.17.21)
  3. The Fruit of the Spirit (09.01.21)
  4. The Christian and Conspiracy Theories (04.14.21)
  5. Purity, Temptation, and Sexual Fulfillment (03.31.21)
