TEACHER: Pastor Tom Schroeder
This class gives an overview of the major teachings found in the Bible. New members will be able to gain an understanding of Lutheran teachings and be able to ask questions in areas they are unfamiliar with and long-time members are reminded of our foundation in the Word and still keep learning more about our amazing God and His deep love for us
It’s easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story – one story of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to His human partners to care for it. They were unfaithful, and it fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn’t give up on His creation. He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and finally by sending His son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection, and ascension. What would this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Follow the rabbi through the world of Jesus, hiking through the Galilee region, exploring the ruins of Rome, and kneeling on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover how the gospel of Jesus confronts the gospel of Imperial Rome. Mark and Kathy Brade Smith will facilitate this DVD discussion series in the sanctuary.
The way that Jesus disciples people is simple and results in ordinary followers participating in the mission of the Father and discipling others to do the same. This study will help you regain the clarity and simplicity of how Jesus disciples people in the Gospels so that you can disciple your children, friends, or fellow church members to get up, follow Jesus and Join Him on His mission too. Pastor Don will facilitate this study in the Family Life Center.
