When the Apostle Paul came to town of Berea in Macedonia on his second missionary trip, Apostle Luke records: “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” Acts 17:11. The Bereans have long been seen as a positive example of how a person or community should respond to biblical teaching. We are called to eagerly learn from God’s Word and, no matter who the teacher is, to investigate new teaching in comparison with the Bible. The practice of the ancient Bereans is a model for all who desire to grow spiritually today.
We aspire to understand the scripture at a deeper level. We believe that the 66 books are a single message system; every book, every name, every detail is there by design. We try to recreate the historical setting in which the Scripture was written, we examine the meaning of the Hebrew and Greek words, and then try to understand each verse at a time. We have just completed a series on the prophetic books of the Bible: Ecclesiastes, Ruth, Esther, Daniel, and Revelation. We will now begin a study on the Gospel of John, the mystical and spiritual interpretation of Jesus' life.
We study books of the Bible, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, and word by word. Anyone who seeks to understand how to read and interpret the Bible would benefit from this class. Come join us, who knows where we may go to next! Dr. Maurice Morelock is the leader and for or more information, call him at 318-652-6684 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
