While working on my Master of Divinity degree, I studied about Christian faith and history, learned about the Jewish roots of Christianity, and the fact that Jesus was a Rabbi that taught His disciples according to the traditions of His time. So, I thought it would be good to go back and read the New Testament with the knowledge I did not have before. The gospels were written to different groups of people, the different letters were also addressed to specific churches or peoples.
When were the books of the New Testament written? Where? To whom? What were the issues and problems that each book or letter is addressing? And how can we apply their teachings in our lives today? In the process of the restoration of the church, what can we learn from the process of formation of the church in the New Testament?
The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law (Deuteronomy 29:29).
You are welcome to join us in this series of bible studies, where we will present an introduction to each book and then read it together and discuss the practical lessons we can use in our churches today.
You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:14–17).
When: Wednesdays @7:00 pm
