We account Dr. E. W. Bullinger among history's greatest Biblical scholars. His vast contribution to scriptural research and interpretation can be paralleled by few men.
We rejoice in the Lord for the opportunity to make the writings of this giant of the faith available to the internet. However, we feel it is our responsibility to point out that many of Mr. Bullinger's earlier writings reflect what we refer to as a mid-Acts view. For many years it was his understanding that the Church, which is the subject of Paul's letters to the Ephesians and Colossians, had its historical beginning sometime during "Acts times". Then there came the day in Mr. Bullingers's life that "The Spirit of Truth" began to enlighten his spiritual understanding concerning three very vital aspects:
- The complete setting aside of the nation Israel was at Acts 28:28.
- That this act of God marked out the true dispensational frontier.
- That the "Revelation of the Mystery" was given to the apostle Paul after "Acts times" .
May we suggest Mr. Bullinger's later writing, "Foundations of Dispensational Truth", where he fully expounds his later view.
"THAT - you may approve things that are "excellent". Philippians 1:10
||The Book of Job
224 pages - E.W. Bullinger
The oldest lesson in the world, as seen in the Book of Job, is that man's way is not necessarily God's way. In this study, E. W. Bullinger shows how the perfect workmanship of God is exhibited in our lives, even in times of great adversity. This lesson is essential to enjoying peace with God for time and eternity.
Bullinger's commentary on the most ancient book of the Bible offers insights into God's work in our lives. The author also gives us a distinctive translation of the Book of Job with explanatory notes and follows the literary and critical style of the book. In addition, figures of speech and divine names and titles are given special attention. Every Bible student will find much practical help in this unique approach to the Book of Job.
||Figures of Speech used in the Bible
1104 pages - E.W. Bullinger
Have you ever wondered what the difference between a parable, a proverb, a fable, an allegory, a type, or a symbol was? Did you ever wonder what the difference between a simile, a metaphor, an idiom, an oxymoron, an ellipsis, an irony, or a climax was? These are all examples of figures of speech used in the Bible. Many portions of the Bible are written in figurative language making some things seem hard to be understood. But God didn't give us His Word to confuse us! He uses figures of speech to paint pictures for us, to emphasize His points, etc. Bullinger is THE authority on the figures of speech used in the Bible and this is the very best work I know of on this subject.
The introduction of this book very briefly explains what figures of speech are, how the ancient Greeks started them and the Romans continued them, how these figures were brought back to life after having almost died out in the Middle Ages. The history of them is not essential for their use, but is there if someone is interested. Bullinger describes 217 distinct Scripture figures of speech, defined as a word or sentence in a peculiar form, different from its original or simplest meaning or use. Each figure includes the pronunciation and etymology, as well as passages of Scripture in which it appears, and a full explanation. Nearly 8,000 passages are cited and seven helpful indexes and five appendices are included as well.
Christian's Greatest Need

||Ten sermons on the second Advent
144 pages - E.W. Bullinger
A look at the Second Coming from both the Old and New Testaments.
||The rich man and Lazarus
40 pages - E.W. Bullinger
In dealing with Luke 16:19-31, and the subject of the so-called 'intermediate state, Bullinger states: "it is important that we should confine ourselves to the Word of God, and not go to tradition". He continues, "It is absolutely impossible that the traditional interpretation can be correct, because, if it were, it would be directly opposed to all the other teaching of Scripture."
In this booklet, before analysing the story itself, the author considers a number of issues like Hades, the Apostles Creed, Christ's words to the dying thief, "absent from the body" and Paul's desire in Philippians 1:23.
The so-called parable itself is seen in the light of the traditions of the Pharisees and the reader may be surprised at how much of an influence these traditions had on early Christianity and how some still permeate our thinking today.
to The Companion Bible

has put ALL
the 198 Appendixes of The Companion Bible on the site. The
Appendixes were written by Dr. E.W. Bullinger. For your convenience we
have linked the Appendixes together as Bullinger has done in the Companion
Bible (KJV) is the absolute BEST Study Bible that I know of. Each Book
of the Bible is introduced, outlined and it's structure is shown. Every
page of the text has a parallel column jammed packed with explanatory
notes. Many of the Old Testament notes are based upon Ginzberg's Massorah
(small writings in the margins of the Hebrew texts). E. W. Bullinger,
the Editor of The Companion Bible, was the only Christian Ginzberg allowed
to help him with his collection of the Masoretic Notes or even to see
them. This is the ONLY place I know where an English reader has access
to this extremely enlightening material. The New Testament marginal notes
are a great help to any Bible student, as well! Not to mention the virtual
treasure trove of Bible knowledge available in the 198 appendixes in the
back of the book. We hope you enjoy the Appendixes.

The pastor, teacher and serious student will find this book practical
and helpful in its literal acceptance of God's Word. This is not a commentary
of other men's views "warmed over". You will find other commentators
views not merely parroted, but challenged. No ill-founded ten nation
Europe is presented.
In this creative and masterful commentary, the Book of Revelation
is treated, not as a book to be interpreted by man, but as God's own
interpretation of the future to us, and what will take place in "the
Day of the Lord". You will be challenged in every chapter, on
almost every page, to confirm your views of interpretation, or to
accept the view E.W. Bullinger is presenting.
Witness of the Stars
204 pages - Dr. E.W. Bullinger
In THE WITNESS OF THE STARS E.W. Bullinger builds on Joseph Seiss's
brilliant work as well as related books. While Seiss explored the historical
and cultural background to the origins of the zodiac and the gospel
enthroned there, Bullinger spends more time comparing the original constellation
and star meanings with texts in the Old and New Testaments.
Starting with Psalm 19, he builds a solid case as to the intertwined
revelations of Bible (the Word in text) and zodiac (the Word in the
stars). The author goes into great detail exploring the star names
in various ancient languages as well as all corresponding scripture.
His case is more than convincing. The amount of ancient legendary
and linguistic evidence is nothing short of amazing. If one believes
in God and that He can do all things, what is so hard about believing
that He can put His message...His plan, in the heavens. Even an honest
skeptic will have to wonder if all of this could be coincidence. It
would be impossible for this to happen by chance. It would be easier
to win the lottery a thousand times in a row.
The best feature of Bullinger's book is his carefully researched
word studies. Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, and other languages are searched
for roots and word names for certain stars. Unbelievably many cultures
all had the same idea or meaning (or story) for a certain star or
stars. The author seems to have tapped into an ancient memory trace
where at one time humans had a more perfect knowledge of the stars,
the skies, and the plan of the ages. There are stories that say that
Enoch or Noah had a clear knowledge of earth's creation, design, and
ultimate plan. The Bible touches on this, and other writings add confirmation
such as the Chaldean creation story.
This work will open a whole new world for the believer. An amazing
body of evidence exists that the heavens were designed to tell us
the story of humankind on earth--a story of a fall and tragedy for
generations, interrupted by a virgin born man who would suffer and
atone, die, and live again, leave and return to destroy the serpent
and dragon. The stars, the zodiac signs are not a negative thing as
some preachers teach, but a God designed creation, evidence that will
make one pause and ponder as to the plans of the unseen Mind in control
of all things.

Reverent minds have long been
attracted by the phenomena of Biblical Numerics. In many cases the use
and the reuse of numbers in the Bible leave the impression that a deeper
significance is intended than that first meets the eye. This volume,
for hunderd years the standard introduction tot Biblical numerology,
gathers instances of perfection in design, symmetry and order in God's
creation and in Holy Scriptures, leading to spiritual lessons which
these fascinating examples teach.
Are you familiar with numbers in scripture? Did you know that they are
used "not merely as in Nature, with supernatural design, but with
spiritual significance." In fact, the Holy Spirit uses what you
could call a "number code" in scripture which allows us to
partake of that "hidden manna" and reach a deeper level of
understanding of what is being said. Here are just a few examples of
numbers and their meaning (See Companion
Bible, appendix 10):
1 = God,
2 = Division,
3 = Complete,
4 = The World,
5 = Grace,
7 = Spiritual Perfection,
8 = Resurrection, New Beginning,
10 = Law, Ordinal Perfection (10 Commandments),
12 = Governmental
Perfection (12 Tribes, 12 Apostles)
Here is yet another great book by the insightful E.W. Bullinger.
Number is Scripture is fascinating and shocking, as it sheds light
on the hidden footprints of the Holy Spirit in the scripture. Readers
learn about the significance of what previously seemed like meaningless
numbers. Everything in the Bible has a meaning, numbers included.
Don't miss reading the book along with the Bible. Some of the tidbits
in this book are worth a king's ransom, such as where 360 degrees
came from, why there are 12 zodiac signs, why certain numbers are
used in the Bible, etc. The book helps in making the Bible fun to
An invaluable guide to the study of Bible Numerics. The first
part of the book deals with the designs involved in the numbers and
numerical features of the Word of God, evidencing as it does the Designer
who devised it. The second part covers the spiritual significance
and symbolic connotations of those numbers which repeatedly appear
in the same or similar contexts and connections throughout the Bible.
to ENJOY the Bible
418 pages - dr. E.W. Bullinger
The Bible is not enjoyed because the Bible is not understood. The methods
and rules by which alone such an understanding may be gained are not
known or followed; hence the Bible is a neglected book. The question
Philip addressed to the Eunuch (Acts 8:30,31) is still greatly needed:
Understandeth thou what thou readest? And the Eunuch's answer is only
too true to-day: How can I, except some man should guide me?
In this book certain canons or principles are laid down, and each
is illustrated by applying them to certain passages by way of examples.
These are intended to be taken only as examples; and the principles
involved are intended to be used for the elucidation of other passages
in the course of Bible study. By the aid of twelve simple canons or
rules, other passages and subjects may be taken up and pursued both
with pleasure and profit -- subjects which are even yet matters of
controversy and of conflict.
We have to remember that the Bible is not a book of pure Science
on the one hand, nor is it a book of Theology on the other. Yet all
its science is not only true, but its statements are the foundation
of all true science. And, it is Theology itself; for it contains all
that we can ever know about God. The cloud that now rests over its
intelligent study arises from the fact that it is with us to-day as
with the Jews of old -- "The Word of God has been made of none
effect by the traditions of men" (Matt. 15:1-9). Failing to understand
the Scriptures we cease to feed on them; then as a natural consequence,
and in inverse proportion, we lean on and submit to "the doctrines
of men," and finally reach a theological desert.
We believe that this book will furnish just that help which Bible
students need. This text has but one object to "Open the book";
to let it speak; to hear its voice; to study it from within itself;
and have regard to other objects and subjects, only from what The
Word of God teaches about them. The method of the "Higher"
criticism is to discredit The Book, or a passage on internal evidence.
How To Enjoy The Bible takes the method to establish and accredit
Holy Scripture on internal evidence also, and thus to derive and provide,
from its own pharmacopoeia, an antidote to that subtle and malignant
This method of study will reveal more convincing and "infallible
proof" of inspiration than can be adduced from all the reasonings
and arguments of men. Like Ezra of old, this books desire is to "Open
the Book" and let it speak for itself, with the full conviction
that if this can be done it can speak more loudly, and more effectively
for itself, than any man can speak on its behalf.
Two Natures in the Child of God
60 pages - E.W. Bulinger
experience of the child of God is described, in Galatians 5:17, in the
following words: "the flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the
spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other;
so that ye cannot do the things that ye would."
In every thing but this the mere professor can imitate the true child
of God: and it is this which distinguishes the merely religious person
from the real Christian. Every true child of God always has an abiding
experience of conflict within, as described in Galatians 5:17. But not
every child of God understands the doctrine concerning it. To have the
experience without knowing the doctrine is the fruitful source of confusion,
disquietude, and discouragement. To know the doctrine and not to have
the experience is fatal, and means eternal disaster.
The only remedy
for this is to learn, direct from the Word of God, all that is there
taught concerning the nature inherited through generation by Adam, and
the nature bestowed through regeneration by God. This alone can give
the believer the true knowledge concerning "God's workmanship";
and the key to his experiences which are otherwise inexplicable to him.
When the doctrine of the two natures is clearly understood, then, that
which before was the cause of doubt is not only removed, but it becomes
the ground of assurance; and is, indeed, the best assurance that one
can ever have that he is God's workmanship, and that God has actually
begun in him that good work which He Himself will perfect and complete
The object of the book is to give the knowledge of this doctrine,
so that the experience, which produces doubt and fear, may become the
source of peace and joy.
