Dedication of the Temple

November 6, 2016

THE CONSECRATION of the Temple on Mount Zion is the focus of this week’s Old Testament study.

The night is far gone

November 6, 2016

IT IS appropriate (and unplanned — by us, anyway), but appropriate — that our last New Testament study before the U.S. presidential election includes Romans 13:1-7. It is a command to Christians to “be subject to the governing authorities.”

The building of the Temple

October 30, 2016

WE RETURN to history in our Old Testament study this week. Our readings describe the process and design of the Temple built by Solomon.

The Romans Road

October 30, 2016

THE RELATIONSHIP between the Law and grace is central to our New Testament study this week. Paul makes it clear that while the Law instructs us on the nature of sin, it does not help us overcome sin. That is the work of grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Train up your child

October 23, 2016

WE CONTINUE through the Book of Proverbs in this week’s Old Testament study. Included are exhortations to seek and value wisdom, to avoid laziness and women of ill repute, and to train children in the way they should go.

Paul vs. the Super-Apostles

October 23, 2016

Our study of 2 Corinthians concludes this week as Paul counters criticism from “super-apostles” who had apparently wormed their way into the church at Corinth and turned them away from the gospel with impressive public speaking skills.

A wise son hears his father’s instruction

October 9, 2016

A COMMON thread through the Proverbs is the wisdom of listening to correction or reproof. As hard as it can be to hear that we need to rethink the way we’re doing things, true wisdom comes from listening to guidance.

Death of the gods

October 9, 2016

THE GIFTS of the Spirit and Paul’s instructions for their application are just part of this week’s study based on Paul’s letters to the church at Corinth. We discuss the resurrection of the dead, apologetics based on eyewitness testimony, and the death of the gods as we cover some of the most remarkable chapters in the New Testament.

Because of the angels

October 2, 2016

WE CONTINUE our study of the most remarkable books of the Bible, 1 Corinthians. Topics include sexual immorality, lawsuits against believers, marriage and divorce, and the need for wives to cover their heads “because of the angels.”
