The Book of Hebrews: Facilitator Yvette Crosby:
The epistle of the Hebrews is a study in contrast between the imperfect and incomplete provisions of the Old Covenant given under Moses and the infinitely better provision of the New Covenant offered by the perfect High Priest, God’s only Son and Messiah Jesus Christ. In this better provision we find hope, testament, promise, sacrifice, substance, country and resurrection. Christ, as the perfect sacrifice over the inadequate sacrifices of Jews; Christ, superior as the High Priest, Prophet and King to all who came before Him. Hebrews has a timeless application and it helps us understand the entire scope of redemptive history, encourages the reader to remember God’s provision for a perfect priest and sacrifice in Christ to free those under the law and how Christ fulfilled it all. All believers now have direct access to God and may approach God’s throne boldly without fear.
The Book of Daniel: Facilitator Terry Brown:
The book of Daniel is a favorite for teachers and students alike. And for good reason. It has all the makings a great story—memorable characters, cliff-hanger drama, and science fiction–like visions. In this class we will uncover that the story of Daniel is about the story of God and his victory in the world. For God is the sovereign Lord of history, the one who establishes kingdoms and brings them down. From the opening chapter and the story of Daniel’s exile to Babylon, to the closing chapter and its vision of the future, we see how God achieves his victory in the world.
Is God A Moral Monster: Making Sense of the Old Testament God: Facilitator Tracy King:
This study is based on a leading apologetics writer, Paul Copan who tackles the most difficult Old Testament passages and topics while helping readers to reconcile the God of righteousness with the God of love. This study will take a look at some of the following accusations and how to respond to them: as well as how we are to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the Old and New Testaments.
God is arrogant and jealous
God punishes people too harshly
God is guilty of ethnic cleansing
God oppresses women
God endorses slavery
Christianity causes violence
We will also explore how to answer critics and how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.
The Sabbath was one of the distinctive marks of God’s people in the Bible. But sabbath is not an everyday term to our culture. In our busyness we have somehow lost or forgotten the true meaning and the purpose of sabbath. In this class, by way of the Scriptures, you will discover the answers to such questions as: What is sabbath? What day of the week is sabbath recognized? How do we practice sabbath? Why do we observe sabbath? The biblical sabbath pattern has much to teach us about how and why to rest, and how to keep God at the center of a day of rest.
With wisdom and purpose, God has entrusted you with a portion of His estate to manage and expand on His behalf. In the weeks to come, you will learn that stewardship is much bigger than managing your money well. Stewardship involves all that you have, all that you are, and all that you do under the loving and sovereign rule of God. Kingdom stewardship will help you take hold of the life you were created for.
