Editing Computer Arrives
The Apple computer arrived this week and is being readied for service in processing videos, Restoration Channel programs, and publications, including the Restoration Times magazine. This computer is essential in all our office endeavors and we are grateful to all who contributed to this equipment upgrade.This new computer should last us years to come. With its improved capabilities, we will be able to more efficiently edit videos, photos, and everything else we do! Here is what the new computer looks like!

The old computer is still going to be used as a secondary editing station for minor projects, so nothing goes to waste!

Anticipating the Fourth Edition Bible
After a seemingly endless wait and fielding hundreds of inquiries from eager purchasers, we have been told from the printer that the new Restoration Study Bible should soon arrive. World Wide Printing in Dallas, Texas, has informed us that the 10,000 fourth-edition Bibles will arrive at YRM in about a week, barring any unforeseen delays. Our last copy of the third edition Bible went out the door three months ago, while the paperback Outreach edition has been out of stock for a year. The new RSB is in three designs: a paperback, a Designer with the Tetragrammaton embossed on the cover (as with the third edition Designer), and a Premium Bible in a cowhide cover. A handy new feature is the cut-out thumb tabs for quickly locating books in both Designer and Premium versions, which can also be personalized. All three will have the same content in each, as was the case in previous editions. The fourth edition will have a much expanded and detailed Topical Reference section, as well as additional charts and footnotes. A minimal increase in price makes the RSB an incredible value—three books in one! We have purposely kept the price to a minimum. Although we are not taking preorders, there will be ample copies available in all editions. The proceeds from Bible orders are folded back into a Bible account for future editions. More information, including pricing, will be upcoming on the website, the magazine, and in flyers once the Bibles arrive.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
Where did the Philistines come from?
A. Anatolia
B. Spain
C. Crete
D. Nordic countries

The prophet Amos cited Yahweh, saying, “Did I not bring up Israel from the land of Egypt and the Philistines from Caphtor?” Caphtor is the Hebrew name for Crete. These sea people emigrated during a period of unrest in Asia Minor and Syria in the 13th century BCE. Derived from “Philistine” is the name “Palestine.” Philo (20 BCE-42 CE) applied the name Palestine to Canaan. Jerome wrote, “…the land of Judea which is now called Palestine.” We prefer the name Judea over Palestine as it reflects biblically the land given to the tribe of Judah. Answer C.
