1 Thessalonians 2:13
13 And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers.
1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, 11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
What would you say if someone asked you: What is the message of Hebrews? Or: What is the message of the whole New Testament? Although many of us are used to hearing sermons on short passages of Scripture, we do not often have the opportunity to think about the broader message of entire books or of the New Testament as a whole. In fact, it’s easy to miss important parts of God’s message to us in the New Testament when we only focus on short passages.
You’re invited to join Dr. Marty Culy in working through a New Testament Overview. This course will help you:
- understand the overall message of each book of the New Testament and the overall message of the New Testament as a whole.
- learn to read the Bible more carefully and fruitfully.
- grow in your relationship with the One True God who has given us His Word.
This is also a great opportunity for fellowship with other followers of Jesus.
