The lesson on January 24, 2021 was part 2 of the "Acts - When and Where?" study. Wayne provided a brief recap from the previous lesson before he taught us of the first date we can pin down from Herod's death in A.D. 44 which ties into Acts 12:1-23. We learned that Acts was written in order. It was written according to eye-witnesses and it was inspired from above (God inspired - Greek word ἄνωθεν (Lk. 1:3 TBT)). Acts is a historically accurate inspired account of what the Lord continued to do after his ascension. In regards to Herod's death, it was somewhat difficult to navigate all the Herod's in the New Testament so Wayne presented a visualization of the Herodian family tree and key events in the New Testament related to members of the Herodian family found from the Biblical Archeology Society. We also learned from Acts that the Pharasees of Israel were collaborating with the Herodians to kill Jesus: 1). (Matt. 22:16 KJV) "And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men." 2). (Mk. 3:6 KJV) "And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him." 3). (Mk. 12:13 KJV) "And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.". This is strikingly similar to a book he is rereading called "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" It is what we are seeing played out with the politcal unrest with American politicians. The scripture reading was from Acts 12:20-25 KJV
This study started on January 10, 2021 and looks at the book of Acts from a perspective of the Apostle Paul's epistles. It will establish when the Pauline book was written during the Acts timeline and answer why it was written in relation to the context of the Acts. This study will provide a roadmap to properly understanding the doctrine of the Acts period and how the transition to the Gentiles is observed but always in the relation to Israel and the Kingdom of God.
A new study was started on November 1, 2020 on the topic of "Hermeneutics". The goal for this study is to teach how we should come to the proper interpretation of scripture so we may rightly divide the word of God. The Greek word for Hermeneutics has the Greek god "Hermes" in it and reflects what they believed about him in myth, which was that Hermes functioned as the emissary and messenger of the gods and was often presented as the son of Zeus and Maia, the Pleiad.
This study was started on June 14, 2020 and the intent is to recognize the different perspective this gospel book has verses Matthew, Mark and Luke. John is clearly written to the Gentiles and it represents the highway ministry that is going on along side the Mystery. In this study, you will find the calling of John 3:16 KJV is always active and will provide salvation to the one who may never understand The Mystery.
Right Division Snippets are designed to look at a topic in scripture from a Right Division perspective. These snippets are short in nature but packed with slides of compelling scriptures that point out how to view the topic in proper light of the age in which we live. Snippets are usually published weekly but can be more or less depending on the inspired need. You may download the videos and have fhem playing in the background of your next Bible Study meeting before you get started. 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
This study will look at the book of Genesis in relation to our calling today. There are so many important issues regarding doctrine in the Bible and in relation to Right Division. In the first chapter we find it starts with creation and in the last chapter records when Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt. So much happened inbetween and this study will look at all of it. Since there at 50 chapters in Genesis, much thought will have to be given to this study if it covers a chapter a week. In the end, this study will
