The lesson on September 20, 2020 was part 14 of "John's Gospel" study. This week, Wayne takes us through the prayer the Jesus makes to the Father in chapter 17 of John. We have learned that there is a parenthesis between chapter 13 and 17, where in 13:1-3 the theme is commenced the "hour has come". Then in John 13:4 thru 16:33 the parenthesis consists of the disciples being instructed, encouraged and prepared and then in 17:1 the "hour has come" theme is resumed. We has seen a similar parenthesis in Ephesians 3:1-13 is a parenthesis of thought between the prayer of the Apostle PAul. The Scripture reading was from John 17:24-26 KJV
This is a new series that covers the book of Colossians. This is an important book because it is a prison epistle that is written to us. All scripture is for our learning but all scripture is not written to you. We don’t obey the scribes and Pharisees that sit in Moses’ seat… these instructions were to Jesus’ disciples at that time in scripture. Paul is an apostle to the Gentiles.
After the Timothy Study, it became apparent that some effort needed to be put forth to clarify for the Christian today would understand the hope we have in Christ Jesus. This hope is different than the hope that was promised to Abraham. Our calling is different than that of Abraham and Israel and the calling determines your hope. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Tim.
This audio series studies the letters the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in his final ministry to the gentiles. These lessons look at the proper doctrine that Christians should follow. We find that having the right doctrine makes our walk with the Lord more gratifying than being out of step with what He wants you to do. Clearly sound doctrine is very important to our proper Christian walk.
This is a series that covers aspects of the body of truth called The Mystery. We learn of it for the first time in Ephesians 3:9 and Colossians 1:25-26 in Paul’s prison epistles. This series is important to Christians because it is our calling for today.
