    This is my first time to read the Book of Baruch. Isn 't it not inspiring for the people who excluded this book because of non importance. If they truly understand Revelation 22 18. What 's up?
  • Ayodele for verse 7

  • Kyle in Flint
    I am so grateful to be able to read the Apocrypha; while I have read the Holy Bible four times in my life, and the Book of Moses nine straight years, I have fallen in love with The Spirit of The Lord from Chapter 1 of Baruch. Really powerful and I could feel it is inspired. Thank you for this service. By the way; "Sisters Go Ye Trailer 2" on Youtube is my latest Christian Indie Film.
