If I were to say to you, come and be fed, and you would be filled, what would have to happen in order for you to be filled? So why do so many balk when Jesus says, “he who believes and is baptized will be saved?” Baptism is essential to salvation, and the New Testament concept is foreshadowed going back as far as Noah in the Ark. In this lesson we take a look at this essential part of God’s plan fr our salvation.

For the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at this magnificent sermon. In this lesson (from 8/23/17) we considered some introductory remarks, the Beatitudes, and we began to consider the teaching about salt and light.

Now less than two years before His crucifixion, and with opposition to Him growing, Jesus appointed twelve men to carry on the work after he was gone. These twelve men became known as apostles, and were granted specific authority in preaching and teaching the kingdom of God.
At the heart of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is a discussion of the church, the bride of Christ. In the letter we learn many things about God’s plan for the church, how the church came into being, who is in the church, and how the church should act. We are going to look at all of this things and more going forward in our study of Ephesians. In this lesson, we get an overview of the book and the people involved in its writing.
