The lesson on July 5, 2020 was part 3 of the "John's Gospel" study. Today's lesson covered the third chapter of the book "Life Through His Name" by Charles Welch. Wayne spent a few minutes reviewing the motivation behind this study then continued the lesson looking the "Welsherian" view of Acts 28 and his perspective on the three sendings of Matthew 22. Charles Welch takes a hard position on the Acts 28 transition to Israel being LoAmmi (as opposed to what Wayne has established with his Acts 29 study and perspective). Wayne then focused on answering these questions: Why so many witnesses called on? Were there any miracles done by the child Jesus? Was John Elijah? Why the emphasis on Baptism? Who was Nathanael – and how was his testimony significant? Did Jesus fill all six water pots with wine? What does the sign “signify”? What sign does the first sign correspond with? The scripture reading was from Deuteronomy 18:18 KJV.
This study looks at Paul’s latter ministries and journey(s) which would have occurred after the close of Acts and the writing of the last seven books Paul wrote before he was executed by Niro. The goal of this study is to find evidence of Paul's fourth and perhaps a fifth missionary journey and when The Mystery was revealed to him during his journeys. Why this study? We need answers to some important questions: When did the church which is his body begin? This is essentially the same as asking – when was the mystery of Eph 3:9 revealed?
In this study, Wayne Stewart will look at the beginning of the church which we are a part of today. The Acts provides the history of Israel and Gentiles in how they had a relationship with Jesus Christ after his death, burial and resurrection. At what point in time did God give specific instructions to the Gentiles apart from Israel? This study will look at this question and help you understand the significance of finding out the answer.
This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
This study looks at the book of Revelation from the perspective of Man, His Nature and Destiny which means the lessons will look at the judgments revealed in revelation as it pertains to man. Whether or not the perspective of eternal torment for the lost is accurate as opposed to just perishing with the appropriate amount of punishment. This study is best followed by the Man, His Nature and Destiny to provide the context of how by looking at Revelation we may expand our understanding of Man's destiny.
This study looks at Man, His Nature and Destiny. It comes after the First Corinthians study which looked at the resurrection and the attributes of the resurrected body. This study will look at why God created man, what was his purpose in the plan of God. We will learn abut the tri-part attributes of a human with the body, soul and spirit. Death and resurrection will be analyzed and how one might find immortality. This study will be surely important to grow in your understanding of God's plan for you if you choose to pay attention and respond to the truth of it.
