FOOD-FOR-BIBLICAL-THOUGHT

I read and study quite a bit.  And when space allows, I enjoy including here what I consider powerful quotes & truths for you to consider.  Enjoy…

“When Christ came, the people of the Old Covenant denied him, but the devils confessed him.” (Cyril of Jerusalem, 4th century A.D.)

Ouch

Mankind scoffs at, and denies that Jesus is God in the flesh, the Messiah, the long-awaited Savior of the world.

Even the demons aren’t that foolish.

“Many were possessed by demons; and the demons came out at [Jesus’] command, shouting, ‘You are the Son of God!’ But because they knew he was the Messiah, he rebuked them and refused to let them speak.” (Luke 4:41)

 

 

FYI – NEW  SUMMIT GROUP!

The Village (yes, the attendees are the Village People) began this past Sunday, 2/17, in Rm. 212.  Meet time is 9:15.

Leaders/Teachers are:  Justin & Lauren Schoepf and Matt & Lisha Flaniken

Registration is now open!

And it appears we’re going to field a solid number of students.  Join us!  Theological learning has never been easier.

Dr. Matt Baird is scheduled to teach New Testament I – The Gospels (SWBLI 5211).

The term ‪begins Tuesday, March 19. Final class is Tuesday, May 7.

Here is the course description: An introduction to the Gospels. These writings will be studied in terms of historical setting, religious background, literary composition, theological message, and interrelationship with the Old Testament.

This is meaty content for equipping all believers as well as teachers.

Please promote this among your respective classes. BHBC members can attend for ZERO dollars. It’s never been easier to receive graduate level training.

Textbook:  Should you choose to purchase the textbook you can click here.  The book, new, can be a little pricey.  But Amazon, at least presently, offers several used copies from around $20.  (and the used copies are usually in great shape.)
