The lesson on November 22, 2020 was part 4 of the "Hermenuetics" study. The focus this week was on Parables and how it is important to understand why Jesus used them and for what purpose they served. Wayne spent the first ten minutes of this lesson to remind us of the problem we have in America when we have two parties not identifying the real problem, which is a spiritual problem with America. Until we fix that, we will not solve our national problems. We then looked at the word "Parable" and was reminded of the Greek "παραβολή" words that mean "throwing along side". Parables were used when Jesus was teaching about the Kingdom of Heaven and showing Old Testament prophecy being literally fulfilled by Jesus. We looked at Isaiah 35:5 being fulfilled in Matthew 11:4 KJV. Wayne reminded us of when the disciples asked why he was speaking to them in parables in Matthew 13:10-13 KJV. Jesus responded "11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand." The scripture reading was from Jeremiah 33:24-26 KJV
The curse and the promise of a savior (Genesis 3:14-24) shows that the message is clear in that Adam and Eve could not stand (consist) apart from Christ. “So He (God) drove out the man” (Genesis 3:14-24). The promise of the savior through the seed of the woman begins a unique battle that will be waged by Satan to destroy the savior. It begins with Cain who slew Able (Genesis 4:1-12).
Here is an audio series that Dr. McLain presented at Northside Bible Church from January 13 through September 28, 1980 on The Acts of the Apostles. This chapter by chapter study covers 36 lessons on Acts which is crucial to your understanding of right division. This study was given prior to Dr.
This seminar covers the very last prophecy given to Israel in the Old Testament--a significant fact in itself. Christians today are looking for the so-called "rapture" and the return of the Lord, and for us to "meet Him in the air." In this step-by-step study, we discover that not only is this not possible today, it doesn't even affect Christians.
This study was given by Dr. McLain in his Friday Night Bible Study sometime in 1971--the exact date is unknown. This study involves some Bible aerobics so it's advisable to keep your Bible open and ready. He gives scriptural proof that Christ Jesus is both the written and incarnate Word with proof texts from both the old and new testaments.
