This is not a course in “How to Understand the Bible for Dummies”! The course is designed to give an overview of each of the books of the Bible and how each book fits into God’s Covenant with His people.
We will take a look at the structure of the Bible, ways to read the Bible, resources to help you to understand various passages, the influence of the Bible on the English language, and other humorous and trivia items of interest.
After surveying the Old Testament and as time allows, we will very briefly survey the Apocrypha, the Deuterocanonical (second canon) books and the intertestamental period (the two centuries between the Old and New Testaments). The final part of the course will look at the New Testament as expanding and fulfilling the promises of the old covenant in the new covenant. Finally, we will survey the life and ministry of Jesus (His death, resurrection and ascension) and the message of Jesus and the Apostles as they spell out what we are to believe and how we are to live as well as our future in Christ. We will conclude with only one millennial view, Pan-millennialism – it will all pan out in the end!
Teacher: Rev. David Brewer
Blessed Are The Peacemakers
Conflict is unavoidable in life. How we work through the disagreements and offenses we encounter can either foster peace and bring honor to others, or it can prolong and even deepen the conflict. This course will look at what the Bible says about peacemaking and give practical steps for how we can be peacemakers especially in our homes and in our church. Topics to be discussed will include:
God as peacemaker
The church as family
How to confess one’s sins to another
How to forgive another
The PAUSE principle for negotiation
Join us as we equip one another to respond to conflict in our relationships at home and church.
