It is with a very heavy heart that I announce the passing of my favorite bible teacher, Arnold Murray. He taught chapter by chapter and verse by verse laying the foundations for anyone who truly wants the truth to learn and study for themselves. He and I did not always agree, but I respect him as no other bible teacher. We have lost one of the greatest teachers ever, but the worldwide network he built will continue. You can catch the last teachings he did on Revelation right now by going to his website. They don’t keep the video’s up constantly, so get them now.
His son, Dennis will continue the ministry. Please pray for his family as they say goodbye to a wonderful servant of God.
Pastor Arnold B. Murray was born April 20, 1929, in Waurika, Oklahoma, to Edgar Dude Murray and Casey Brown Murray. He went home to be with his Lord on February 12, 2014.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of forty-six years Anna Murray, and his son David Vernon Murray. Pastor Murray is survived by his son Dennis Arnold Murray and his wife Marion, of Gravette, his sister-in-law Martha Sweeter, also of Gravette, his granddaughter, Jessica Murray Pike, and her husband Luther Pike, of Hiwasse, and one sister Fayezel Jackson, of Houston, Texas.
