Sunday Morning Bible Study—The Book of Leviticus
“The voice of the Lord fills the pages of Leviticus. This book, as fully as every other in the canon, is the Word of God. It is divine speech more obviously than any other book in the Bible, for almost every section begins with “The Lord spoke to Moses.”…Leviticus proclaims the same Gospel that is enacted in the Divine Service of Word and Sacrament, the same Gospel that the church is to proclaim to the world until the close of human history. This book, then, is most relevant to the life of the church because it proclaims the Gospel of Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” Dr. John W. Kleinig. Leviticus, Concordia Commentary Series. CPH, 1. Grab a cup of coffee and join us on Sunday mornings immediately following the Divine Service.
Wednesday Morning Bible Study—10:30 a.m.
“The kingdom of heaven is like…” This phrase introduces many parables in the New Testament. On Wednesday mornings we have embarked on a study of these parables of Jesus. These mini narratives from our Lord can be difficult to understand but they can also give us some much-needed insight into the kingdom of heaven that Jesus brings if we take the time to ponder them. Please join us as we unpack these wonderful treasures from our Lord. We pray the Office of Matins at 10:00 a.m. with Bible Study to follow at 10:30.
Men’s Bible Study—Lutheran Confessions
Gentlemen, if you haven’t been to the Men’s Confessions Study yet, what’s stopping you? You are missing out! In our last meeting we had a wonderful, in-depth discussion regarding Holy Baptism and The Lord’s Supper (Articles IX-X in the Augsburg Confession). Our time together serves many purposes. We engage with Holy Scripture through the Lutheran Confessions giving us perspective and depth of learning from those who have travelled this road before us. With a casual setting, we have opportunity for much discussion. It is also a time to get to know one another and develop stronger bonds with our brothers; something much needed in our church and in the world today. We meet every other week in the Social Hall. Our next meeting is Wednesday, May 31 at 7:00 p.m.
