January - February 2023 Bible Classes

Adults Sundays

THE GOSPEL OF LUKE syllabus
Facilitator: Andrew Barnes
Participants: Adults

In the Gospel of Luke we will explore the “orderly” account of the historical life of Jesus Christ. We will highlight the unique aspects of this gospel when compared to the other gospels, focusing on specific themes designed to reaffirm belief in Jesus Christ and impart assurances meant specifically for Gentile believers.
Luke spotlights people who are often looked down upon or disparaged, outcasts, downtrodden, misfits of the day. He includes stories of individuals with social challenges, physical limitations, diseases, and sins.

TACTICS syllabus

Preschool to 5th Grade
OSH: FALLS & CHANGES

Romans 3:23 says that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” What will we do after we fall? We have to make changes. Jesus taught about repentance when He said, “…unless you repent, you shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3,5). We learn from Jesus that when we sin (fall) we must repent (change). Thankfully, Christ died to save us from our sins. By God’s grace and through Christ’s sacrifice, we can start over as sinless children of God (Romans 3:24-26; 6:3-7; 2 Cor 5:17). But continued freedom from sin can only be ours if we are willing to make changes in the way we live each and every day. We must “put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts” and we must “put on the new man which was created according to God in righteousness and true holiness” (Eph. 4:22-24).

The Old Testament is full of powerful stories about falls and changes. We will read about people who fell, but then refused to change. When they refused to change, the consequences were devastating. Often, those consequences affected not only the ones who fell, but their families and even entire nations. But, there are also vivid stories of people who, when they fell, repented of their sins. They turned aways from sin and back to God. From them, we learn what it means to have a truly penitent heart. And we will see that God forgives and blesses those who turn back to Him.

We will fall, but we can change. God will help us. Then, He will take us to heaven to live with Him.
