previous sermon series - twenty (New testament)
In 2017, we are going to study through the entirety of the Bible on Sunday nights in 20 minute sections. Each week, our minister will deliver a message about a single book of Scripture or a section of books that can be condensed into 20 minute Bible studies. These lessons are not exhaustive, but they are meant to be informative, applicable, and easy-to-use. For those interested in teaching God's Word, there will be a link below each lesson's audio to a study guide and answer sheet for you to use as you'd like. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
This page only highlights the lessons from the New Testament. To see the lessons from the OT follow this link.
The biographies of Jesus Christ provide mankind with everything we need to know about Christ, but not necessarily everything we want to know.
acts of the apostles
The Acts of the Apostles is truly the only historical record of the New Testament. While many details about the early Church are found in the epistles, this volume goes into such detail that we can find many great lessons. Fro the birth of the Church to the introduction of Saul of Tarsus, the value is undeniable. Not everyone loves history, but everyone should respect it.
The Epistle to the Romans is the first of the Apostle Paul's letters. It is truly a theological masterpiece. While deep, it is completely understandable to even the average Bible student. While this letter was sent to a group of Christians he hadn't met, he knew who they were due to their faith and their reputation.
The Apostle Paul wrote two letters to the Corinthians that are found in the Scriptures. Both of these letters were sent to an unstable congregation in one of the most vile cities in the ancient world. Paul loved the Christians in Corinth but couldn't fathom their lack of faith. He boldly scolded them and delicately taught them in these letters.
Paul wrote several letters from the confines of a prison. Some of these letters were unique personal while others were sent as reassurance and thankfulness to those who had helped the Apostle. While all of his letters were remarkable, the message of these seem to rise above many others due to the occasion of their writing.
When Paul wrote these letters, he did so as a mentor, father-figure, and friend. These are some of the most personal of all the books of the Bible. In them, you see the mutual benefit a relationship based upon common faith look like.
The Epistle to the Hebrews is one of the most theologically-rich books in the all the Bible. It's simple message is clear - Jesus is better than anything else.
The Epistle of Common Sense is truly one of the hidden gems in Scripture. This short letter contains so much practical advice it should be a trusted companion to every Christian.
The short, personal letters at the end of the New Testament contain a great deal of value to Christians today. As we explore the simple message of these epistles, we learn about God, we learn about perserverance, and we learn about ourselves.
