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 witnesses called on? Were there any miracles done by the child Jesus? Was John Elijah? Why the emphasis on Baptism? Who was Nathanael – and how was his testimony significant? Did Jesus fill all six water pots with wine? What does the sign “signify”? What sign does the first sign correspond with? The scripture reading was from Deuteronomy 18:18 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.
