Bible 101 Part 5

The Old Testament Prophets

 

The fifth part of our teaching series, Bible 101, taking a journey through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Tonight's session is lead by Sungjoo Aird.

 

At the end of each session there are a number of questions for discussion and these are reproduced below:

1. Jesus still speaks to us today. As the ultimate prophet, what kind of message do you think Jesus wants to communicate to us?

 2. Jesus is coming as the Judge and glorious King. This has not been fulfilled yet someday He will certainly come back as He promised. How do you feel about this second coming of Jesus Christ as the Judge and the king?

3. Did you read the one of the books in the prophets? What did you feel about the book? What made you interested most about the book?

The fourth part of our teaching series, Bible 101, taking a journey through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Tonight's session is lead by Neil Watson.

 

At the end of each session there are a number of questions for discussion and these are reproduced below:

1.What can we learn about Saul’s experience of letting jealousy get in the way of leading our people and ourselves well? What things get in our way of treating people the way God wants us to?

2.How do we feel about situations like David’s desire to build a permanent Temple, where we have a strong desire to see something become a reality but never do? (We plant seeds but might never reap the harvest!)

3.Each of the kings started well, had great tools at their disposal, but ultimately fell short. How do we not only start well but continue to remain faithful in our pursuit of becoming more like Jesus every day?

People of the Spirit, Neil Watson.

Romans Chapter 8 v 5-11

 

For the 6 weeks through Lent we are focusing on Romans Chapter 8. In this session we look at how in Christ we can live a life that's focused on the Spirit.

 But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about. But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s terms.

Bible 101 Part 3

The Birth of a Nation: Genesis 12

 

The third part of our teaching series, Bible 101, taking a journey through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Tonight's session is lead by Andrew Dick.

 

At the end of each session there are a number of questions for discussion and these are reproduced below:

1. If we are ‘called’ to be Christians what does it mean for us that Abram was called for the sake of others not himself?

2. How challenging do you find Abraham’s faith?

3. What does it mean for us that God choses such an unlikely leader  as Moses for his people?

4. Why do you think that the Bible repeats the pattern of exile followed by a journey to another Eden?

The Solution is Life on God's Terms, Mark Nicholas

Romans Chapter 8 v 1-4

 

For the next 6 weeks through Lent we will be focusing on Romans Chapter 8. In this first session we look at how in Christ we are freed from the law of sin and death.

 

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you] from the power of sin that leads to death.
