The Gospels: Encountering the Father in the Son
The Gospels are the pinnacle of Scripture. In them, the Father reveals his Son, the Messiah. Conversely, the Son unveils his Father. Journey with us as we follow Jesus and experience the Father’s heart. In this subject, we will explore the four Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – and compare them with the Song of Songs and the Hebrew Scriptures. Expect to enjoy the liberating Lordship of Jesus and the emotional wholeness that emerges from your heavenly Father’s embrace. Through these studies, you’ll discover what Jesus meant when he said, ‘Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father'” (John 14:9, ESV).
Psalm 119: Enjoying God’s Word
Psalm 119 towers like an oak tree over all the other Psalms. It’s the longest Psalm and one of the most intriguing. It imparts to us a love for the Bible and gives us the keys to unlock the treasures of God’s Word. Psalm 119 is a stunning example of Hebrew poetry. Just as Psalm 119 walks through the Hebrew alphabet, we will learn each Hebrew letter and the beauty they disclose. Moreover, this unparalleled poem points to Jesus, God’s living Word. Our study will include comparing Psalm 119 to Jesus’ life and teaching in the Gospels. You’ll understand why “Angelic smiles adorn the adamant on the journey, who walk straight towards Life’s Author” (Psalm 119:1, IT).
Hidden Treasures: Finding the Father’s Glory in the Hebrew Language
In ‘Hidden Treasures,’ you’ll learn the basics of Biblical Hebrew. As we journey through Psalm 119 and the Gospels, we’ll seek to find the treasures in each Hebrew letter, discovering their meaning and significance. We’ll also learn how to write each letter and how to read Biblical Hebrew. Ultimately, we’ll see how the Hebrew letters and key Hebrew words relate to Jesus’ life and good news. Yes, Jesus is the living Word. This subject will cause the Bible to come alive and has been a favourite among our students. John’s Gospel opens with “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:1, 14a).
