The lesson on November 29, 2020 was part 5 of the "Hermeneutics" study. This weeks focus was on Typology. The typology in scripture are examples for us to learn. There are many types in the testimony of Jesus Christ whereas it says in John 5:39 KJV "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." We see in all of the Old Testament (The Law = Torah; The Prophets = Nebiim; The Psalms = Kethubim) that Jesus is seen in types and shadows. In the New Testament we see other examples: Hebrews 4:11 Israel an example of unbelief; Hebrews 8:4,5; 9:24; 10:1 Tabernacle – example and shadow of heavenly things; Hebrews 7:3,15-17: Melchizedeck; John 3: 14-15: Brazen serpent; and 1 Corinthians 10:14 Spiritual rock. The scripture reading was from Acts 8:17-24 KJV
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.
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.
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 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.
This series studies the Spiritual Warfare that we battle as Christians that is discussed in Ephesians 6:10:17. Paul was warning the church at Ephesus to be cognizant of the warfare that is taking place with the devil... as he said in Eph. 6:10-12 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
