Hello Friends!

First, let me again say thank you for being a part of our Theology class! I really do hope it turns out to be an experience that helps you draw closer to Christ through growing in "grace and knowledge."

This week we covered "What Is Theology?" and "What is the Bible?" These are foundational issues that will serve us as we move ahead with the class. Please take a look again at the syllabus and the two handouts, and do let me know if you have any questions.

Homework:
Read Ch. 1-3 in Christian Beliefs (What is the Bible?, What is God like?, and What is the Trinity?)
Check out the comparison of the Great Isaiah Scroll with the text we use for translation (variants are in italics--the majority are minor grammatical or vocabulary). Tremendous correspondance.

  • Session 1
  • Session 2
  • Christ In Old Testament Verses attached (I couldn't find the exact one I was looking for, but this will take you some ways).

Just For Fun:
