The Historical Reliability of the New Testament (part 2) – 2 Peter 1:16-18 – 9/30/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Many skeptics argue that we cannot trust the New Testament documents to be accurately telling the truth about Jesus and the church. We can answer those charges by examining several lines of evidence regarding the historical reliability of the New Testament.  In this lesson, we consider whether or not the New Testament contains eyewitness testimony, and then examine how we can know that the New Testament as we have it is an accurate translation of what was written in the first century.

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiven by God Lesson 3 – 9/19/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
Is it possible to know that you are forgiven?  Can you be certain of your salvation?  Absolutely.  God has clearly given us assurance in his word that we can know that we have his forgiveness, and we can rest in our hope thanks to that knowledge.

The Historical Reliability of the New Testament (part 1) – 2 Peter 1:16-18 – 9/16/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
We live in a day and age when no matter where you turn, media outlets and individuals are constantly making up or exaggerating stories in order to advance their own personal agendas. How do we know that the writers of the New Testament weren’t doing just that?  Can we be sure that what the New Testament tells us about Jesus is what actually happened 2000 years ago in Palestine?  As it turns out, we can, and in this lesson and in following lessons, we’re going to examine some ways that we can know that to be true.

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiven By God – Lesson 2 (9/12/18 Bible Class)

9/12/18 Wednesday Bible Study

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
What would it mean to have your past erased and have the burden of guilt from sin lifted off of your shoulders?  That is exactly what God offers us through Jesus Christ, and the very thing that our Brother Dan Winkler helps us to understand in his book Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: The Peace of Living Without a Past.  Over the Fall quarter, we’ll be studying this book together.  In this lesson we focus on two questions: What is forgiveness? and Why are we forgiven?
