Bible Study Notes & Materials 2017

Term 3 & 4 - CSG, Home Groups & Studies for Women

(Term 4 will start as usual with prayer on Wed 11 October)

Gospel and Kingdom

Welcome to Gospel and Kingdom, a series of small group Bible Studies designed to teach how the Bible fits together and thus how the whole Bible should be read and understood as Christian Scripture.

As the word ‘how’ implies, Gospel and Kingdom is a skills course intended to equip us to be better interpreters of the Bible. But that does not mean that the course is without practical life application for as Jesus reminded the religious authorities of His day, the point of all Bible Study is that we should come to Him (John 5:39,40), trusting in Him as the only Saviour and submitting to Him as the only Lord.

Making Sense

 

 

 

 

 

As Christians we know that the Bible speaks to every part of life, to our deepest needs as well as our everyday decisions. But we don’t always how to make sense of daily life in the light of what the Bible teaches. In our series ‘Making sense’ we look at a number of important Biblical and practical issues such as money, relationships, work, family, contentment and personal change to mention just a few. Join us for these studies as we work hard to understand the Bible and see its relevance to every day life.

2 Thessalonians - Living in the light of Eternity

2 Thessalonians is Paul’s follow up letter to the church in Thessalonica. It is designed to strengthen and encourage believers to persevere in their walk with Christ, especially in the face of growing opposition and persecution. It is also designed to instruct believers about the return of the Lord, correcting wrong thinking on the one hand but also urging every believer to see life in this world in the light of eternity and thus to live lives that are pleasing to the Lord as we wait for His glorious appearing.

Firm in the Faith

Election, Perseverance and the Return of Christ – these are just three of the important doctrines that are dealt with in Paul’s first letter to the believers in Thessalonica – doctrines that remain as relevant and important to Christians today as they were when Paul first wrote about them. And of course in typical Pauline fashion, doctrine always leads to conduct, with the result that 1 Thessalonians is also filled with clear and challenging instruction in how to live day by day as we wait for the return of the Lord and seek to witness for Him in a hostile but spiritually needy world.  

Studying 1 Thessalonians is refreshing, challenging and encouraging. It is certainly something worth doing and we would like to invite you to join us week by week as we study together and experience the word of God at work in us, among us and through us.
