Here is the line up of events:
The Chapel offers three interesting and challenging Bible studies on Wednesday evenings at 4:30 p.m.
“Encounter Jesus” led by Rev. Len Walker is an eight-week Bible study and video series that teaches and encourages you to walk with THE Jesus of the Bible and not just the Jesus you want him to be. In this study, we explore eight passages from across the four gospels, each highlighting a key facet of Jesus life and work. The video sessions are 30 minutes each with an accompanying workbook that offer daily study and faith exercises.
“Jesus in the Gospels” led by Rev. Lamar Helms is a study which focuses on Jesus in the four Gospels, and how and why the synoptic Gospels Matthew, Mark, and Luke sometime treat the stories of Jesus differently. The study will focus on several of Jesus teaching parables. We will focus on how the Gospel writer identifies with his audience to share the Gospel most effectively.
“Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes, Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible” led by Dr. Harry Lucenay: We live in a world with similarities but very different from the world of the biblical writers. We tend to confront biblical realities with our own cultural assumptions. As a result, we are tempted to make the Bible say what we think it should say, rather than what the writers intended to communicate.
Since we are a people immersed in our own culture, we are wise to explore the impact of the original environment and culture on the biblical presentation of eternal truths. Who knows? The study could open our eyes and stretch our understanding of the Sacred Text.
