Bible Study

There are many reasons to study the Bible. Some of the best include:

  • To be culturally literate and possess the basic information needed to thrive in the modern world 
  • To learn FIRSTHAND what it says, rather than simply through interpretation
  • Personal edification, on an intellectual level, personal, and emotional level
  • So we can help others through difficult circumstances, and encourage them to be all that God created them to be
  • To know who Jesus Christ is and the kind of relationship He wants to have with each of us
  • Because it is God's Word to us
  • So that we can come to know God's plan in history, His sovereignty, His providence, and His love for us
  • Avoiding error by providing us with a firm foundation in God's truth, rather than in the errors of the world

Our next Bible Study session will be on:

“Psalms: The School of Prayer”

Wednesdays beginning April 4th at 7:00 pm at the Collaborative Center, 20 Como Road, Hyde Park.

While the historical books of the Bible recount God's creative and redemptive acts in history, the Psalms reveal Israel's response to God's covenant offer and serve as a model for our response to Him. Indeed, one could say that the historical books tell the "outside" of the story of Israel by giving an historical perspective, while the Psalms tell the "inside" story, which comes from the deeply personal perspective of one who is seeking God. Our communication with God is enhanced by a deeper understanding of the book of Psalms and of the individual psalms that reside in each of our hearts.
