There is so much to uncover in the book of Psalms. But at the heart of the Psalms is a God we need to know. This lesson explores the theme of learning about God from Psalms.
It is clear that God deems preaching important. In Rom. 10:14, scripture states that preaching is needed for people to hear and believe the word. In this lesson, we examine the first sermon ever preached in the setting of the new church God would establish on the day of Pentecost after Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. An examination of this sermon in Acts 2 helps us understand "Why We Preach."
Noel Whitlock delivered our lesson.
In our "Why We? series we are addressing the things we do in the assembly. Not only do we pray in our corporate worship, it's something we do all the time in our Christian walk. In this lesson, we consider the powerful example of Hannah, who would eventually become the mother of Samuel, from 1 Sam. 1-2. Being barren provides the backdrop to some powerful reasons that confirm "Why We Pray."
Dr. Terrance McClain delivered our lesson.
The book of Job is one of the most challenging in all the Bible. Sometimes, a study of it leaves us with more questions than answers. But Job reveals some critical information. In this lesson we explore salvation/redemption, being a servant to God and, of course, the problem of suffering.
Imagine you've never been to "church" and you decide to go see what those people do on Sundays. One of the most unique things you'd witness is singing. You'd probably think, "Why do these people do this?" This lesson examines the biblical logic of singing and neuroscience related to singing.
How do you interpret the events of your life? Are they random, unfair, deserved? When we pull back the curtain on the life of Joseph, we find a man who has encountered the deepest depths of mistreatment and the highest accomplishments of his world. But there was more to what happened to Joseph. There was his “why.” How do you interpret your life?
Phil Brookman delivered our lesson.
