The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 19

The lesson on June 11, 2017 was part 19 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne took time to recap what he presented at the Truth for Today conference (you may listen to Wayne's presentation here) and the connections he made with other Acts 28 believers, then transitioned into the lesson of looking at the perfection that is talked about in 1 Corinthians 13.  There are many beliefs as to what the Apostle Paul was talking about.  Some say it is the completion of the New Testament.  Others say it is the completion of scripture.  Futher, some even believe it refers to The Mystery.  None of these things apply to the perfection that Paul was writing about particulary since the Mystery was given to PAul after Acts 28 divorcement of Israel and the very nature of that body of truth being hidden in God until He released it.  The perfection we learn is the completed promises that were made to Israel.  The scripture reading was from Jeremiah 31:31-34 KJV

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 2

The lesson on January 15, 2017 was part 2 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  This lesson looks at the beliefs of Preterism in relation to AD 70 and the nation of Israel. Preterism holds that Ancient Israel finds its continuation or fulfillment in the Christian church at the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70.  It is so important that you keep scripture in its proper context.  That is why we follow right division to understand what doctrine being taught is truth for those who it was written to. In this lesson, Wayne builds the case against Preterism and explains why it is an incorrect interpretation of scripture.  The scripture reading was from 2 Timothy 4:1-8 KJV

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 4

The lesson on January 29, 2017 was part 4 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  This week Wayne moved into looking at the mysteries found in scripture.  In studying the Greek word "mystērion" there 27 passages in the scriptures that use this word.  Wayne intends to look at all twenty seven passages but only covers two in this lesson.  Before we looked at these mysteries, he took time to study the eytmology of the word and how it includes the idea of initiation and having closed eyes which is from the Greek word "Muw".  There are some words today that still come from it like "murmur, muttle and mumble".  Then we learned of its use before Christianity by looking briefly at The Eleusian Mysteries. The first mystery studied was in Matthew 13.  That one was easy to understand.  The second was from Romans 16:25-27 which was a difficult one to get the accurate meaning (proving that it not the same found in Ephesians 3 and Colossians 1).  The scripture reading was from Romans 16:25-27 KJV
