New in May
- Remnant Teachings: The biblical narrative is prophetic. God redeemed all of Israel from death to life during the Exodus from Egypt, but only a remnant returned from the exile in Babylon. In this session, Remnant 8: Who is God, Who is Christ, Who are you?, Dr. Anne Davis shows us that "Christ in you" is a gift from God, but when you are "in Christ" you are walking as the Messiah walked. This session unfolds the power of metaphorical language, and demonstrates that those who are walking "in Christ" are in line for God's selection of a remnant. This is part 8 in a 10-part series that discusses the remnant of believers in Christ, who will join the remnant of Israel.
- Biblical History: Dr. John Moore brings geography, photography and archaeology to stories of the Old Testament, which breathes life into the narrative and transcends you to the time of David, Jonathan and Saul. You will identify with the personal life of David as Dr. John Moore relates the accounts of his wives and his three rebellious sons, Amnon, Absalom and Adonijah. David's son Solomon enters the story briefly in the humorous account of his anointing as the next king. This is Session 7 of his 12-part Old Testament Stories series teaching, Old Testament Stories: King David's Personal Life.
- Biblical Archaeology: Archaeology brings to life the dramatic story of the biblical narrative by excavating walled cities, uncovering artifacts, and discovering convergences between the Bible and what archaeology has unearthed. In this teaching, The Pharos Lighthouse, Professor Sparks takes us to the Pharos Lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. Until it was badly damaged by earthquakes in the 1300's, it was the tallest man-made structure in the world.
- Special Teachings:
- The Power of Women, Part 4 - Join Dr. Anne Davis for Session 4 of her teaching, Leah was Unloved. Bible study groups spend much of their time with Rachel, not Leah. But we have much to learn from Leah, who had to live with a husband who did not love her, and with a younger sister who was the favored one. How did Leah deal with this difficult situation?
- Hebrew, the Living Word - Join Dr. Charles Lu in his teaching on the Hebrew word-picture study of the word "peace - shalom." Dr. Lu discusses the Hebrew word "shalom" from its first appearance in Genesis 14:17 to the revelation of the Prince of Peace -- Jesus, in John 14:27. This is Session 4, Hidden Meaning of Peace.
- Bad Boys of the Bible - Join Dr. John Moore in Part 4 of this 5-part series, Life Under the Herods: Bad Boys of the Bible. This series brings to life the dominating political figures at the time of Jesus. We know that Herod the Great was King of the Jews at the time Jesus was born. But who was he and who were the other Herods mentioned in the gospel story? This background information is not only fascinating but also essential to understanding the context of the life and times of Jesus. In Part 4, Herod Antipas, the saga of the Herods continues with Herod Antipas, the son of Herod the Great whose kingdom included Galilee in the north and Perea east of the Jordan River. In the New Testament he is mentioned several times, most often simply as Herod. His nature was brutal and cunning, similar to that of his father. Antipas ordered the execution of John the Baptist, and took part in the trial and death of Jesus.
Members and Partners
Every Month we offer new teachings exclusively to Members and Partners. This month includes:
- Hebrew Concepts in Scripture: Using Biblical Hebrew, Dr. Anne Davis delves into Ruth 1:1-13 in her teaching, Ruth and Naomi.
- Searching the Scriptures:Using foundational methods of bible study, Dr. Anne Davis shows how the book of Jonah is more than a simple story. In her teaching, Jonah, Part 2: A Growing Relationship with God, Dr. Davis shows us that the story of Jonah is filled with provocative symbolism. Fish in Scripture represent “people”, and to the ancient Israelites the sea was dark and mysterious and evil. Jonah in the belly of the whale is a picture of our lives in the world. However, the “belly” is also a symbol for “new life”. From the trials of the world it is possible to emerge as new life for God.
