WISDOM OF SOLOMON
Solomon is described by many as "the wisest man who ever lived." He left us a legacy of written wisdom in three books of scripture - Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs. God asked Solomon what he wanted most to rule as King after his father, David. He chose wisdom. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Solomon shares the wisdom revealed to him. His spirit-guided advice covers a wide range of topics, including youth and discipline, family life, self-control and resisting temptation, business matters, words and the tongue, knowing God, marriage, seeking the truth, wealth, and poverty, immorality, and of course, wisdom. Join us as we explore these valuable lessons from Solomon's books.
This class will be facilitated by Kent Brusstar via Zoom.
HOW TO READ THE BIBLE FOR ALL IT'S WORTH
Two years ago I led a class on "How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth." The intent was to look at the principles for determining what is the meaning and application of passages we read in God's Word. We all agreed that CONTEXT is one of the chief considerations. As the class progressed we examined this and other technical aspects of interpreting Scripture. At one point a student asked a question which has bugged me ever since: "Does it make a difference?" Since then my study has always had that question in the background.
So in this class, in which we will revisit many of the same areas, we will do so in light of the questions does it make any difference in how I live, how I hear and respond to what God is trying to tell me, and how I share his presence in my life with the world.
We will NOT uncover any hidden meanings, for there are none. We WILL seek to read and understand the plain meaning of the text as God gave the words to the Bible writers many centuries ago. I think it will be an exciting journey.
This class will be facilitated by Tony Fritz via Zoom.
