If you have always wanted to have a firm and basic understanding of God's Word, then this course is for you! We approach our study of the Word by seeking to understand how God is building His Kingdom across time and human history. We incorporate the overall outline of the Bethel Bible Series as the backbone of our study, but we expand further by incorporating each book of Scripture.
Our class time is comprised of an hour of lesson presentation followed by about an hour of discussion, Q&A, videos or other means of assisting us to apply what we have studied.
The primary requirement or "homework" will be to read the assigned Scripture before class. Our purpose is to know God's Word...and we accomplish that by spending time meditating on His Word.
Although the course of study is divided into four semesters (Old Testament I and Old Testament II; New Testament I and New Testament II), one may register for any one semester at a time. Although it is ideal to take the courses sequentially, it is not required.
A BETHEL DISCIPLESHIP SUMMER STUDY
“OUR MIGHTY AND MAJESTIC KING:
JESUS IN THE BOOK OF ACTS”
This is a summer small group Bible study open to anyone who would like to join us as we engage Scripture and marvel at the majesty and might of our reigning King! In our Bethel Discipleship classes, we read and study God's Word as a whole....the Old Testament and the New Testament are halves of the same overarching grand narrative and they are necessarily connected. So we are going to approach the book of Acts by: (1) reading it in light of the Old Testament promises related to God's Kingdom, and (2) reading it in light of the New Testament Gospels which tell us of Jesus who has come, died, risen and ascended to the right hand of the Father. When we take this approach, we begin to see that Acts is telling us about the continuing reign of Christ in the inaugurated Kingdom of God!
This study begins on Wednesday, May 24 from 10 am – 12 noon and will continue for eight weeks of study, ending on July 19. (We will not meet during the week of VBS.)
