John's Gospel - Part 3

The lesson on July 5, 2020 was part 3 of the "John's Gospel" study.  Today's lesson covered the third chapter of the book "Life Through His Name" by Charles Welch.  Wayne spent a few minutes reviewing the motivation behind this study then continued the lesson looking the "Welsherian" view of Acts 28 and his perspective on the three sendings of Matthew 22.  Charles Welch takes a hard position on the Acts 28 transition to Israel being LoAmmi (as opposed to what Wayne has established with his Acts 29 study and perspective).  Wayne then focused on answering these questions: Why so many...

John's Gospel - Part 1
The lesson taught on June 21, 2020 was part 1 of "John's Gospel" study.  Wayne reviewed the materials he would like us to use to support our study of John's gospel which are attached to this lesson so you may download them.  Matthew 22 laid the foundation to talk about the three invitations that God used appealing to Israel using the wedding analogy.  The first calling was when Christ came.  The second calling was after his crucifixion during the Acts period.  The third calling was after the destruction of the temple in AD. 70 and this was called the highways ministry.

John's Gospel - Introduction

The lesson taught on June 14, 2020 was an introduction to the new study on "John's Gospel".  Wayne takes time to explain why he is motivated to study the Gospel of John, particularly how it is of a unique context verses Matthew, Mark and Luke.  John is written for the Gentile.  We were given homework to download a book in PDF form and study for the next lesson.  Of the many signs that were given, there are only 8 miracles identified in John and they were for the Gentiles.  The unique aspect of John is that it will describe the "highways" ministry to whosoever will come to the wedding. ...

Genesis - Part 55

The lesson taught on May 17, 2020 was part 55 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne reminds us we see alot of what started in Genesis play out during the Acts period.  Paul takes the writings of Genesis and shows doctrine concerning the election of the Nation of Israel and the fact that salvation is by grace through faith.  After Acts 29, when PAul received the Mystery, the mention of Abraham is gone because now salvation by grace is with faith in Christ. PAul now presents salvation in a new context apart from Abraham because there is a new hope revealed to PAul the prisoner for us Gentiles. ...
