A Study of Hebrews: Winter 2017

Location: Conference Room (Room 101)
Led by: Dave Carroll and David Skove
Hosted by: Good News fellowship

The New Testament book of Hebrews makes it clear that Jesus Christ exceeds all other people, pursuits, objects, or hopes to which human beings offer allegiance. Hebrews pictures Jesus as better than the angels, as bringing better lives to humanity through salvation, as offering a better hope than the Mosaic Law could promise, as a better sacrifice for our sins than a bull, and as providing a better inheritance in heaven for those who place their faith in Him.  Jesus is indeed superior to all others.

This book is also a helpful bridge between the Old and New Testaments.  As the saying goes, “you can’t understand the New Testament unless you understand the Old Testament.  Conversely, you can’t understand the Old Testament unless you understand the New Testament.”

Summer 2015– The Epistles of John
What Makes You Think You Are Right?

Led by: Rev. Nan and Boyd Clarke
Room 101

In the first century, the Church came under pressure from diverse groups as it began to define the orthodoxy that has characterized it through two millennia. One such group were the Gnostics , whose dualist theology in a variety of guises has troubled the Church for centuries. In this context, John addresses the question that many both within and without the Church may ask - “How come you are so certain that you are right?”  In doing so, he develops what philosophers call an “epistemology”, trying to answer the question “ how do you know that you know?” Studying the epistles of John then has a rather contemporary feel, providing an answer from orthodox historic Christianity to modern anxieties about belief and the question of certitude.
