This Sunday, August 20: Exile Part 3

This summer we are taking an extended look at the journey of God’s people as recorded in some of the key books of the Old Testament. We believe that the whole story of God and his people ultimately points to and finds its fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ. The better we know this story the better we’ll know Jesus’ story and the better we’ll understand our own story as followers of Jesus. We continue our journey this week with the Prophet Ezekiel.

Ezekiel
“Among the exiles in Babylon, Ezekiel shows Israel righteousness of God’s judgment, and that God’s justice creates hope for the future.” Towards the end of Ezekiel’s writings, the kingdom of Judah has suffered the shame of conquest. Even the Temple lays in ruins; spirits aree at an all-time low. But Ezekiel is given a vision. God will give the people his Spirit, and they will live.

Lamentations
“A collection of five funeral poems offered on behalf of Jerusalem after its destruction by Babylon. The Book of Lamentations may not be the most popular book in the Bible, but it is an essential ingredient for helping humans to understand an important aspect of their relationship with God – the expression of grief and distress. Now surrounded by war, grief and suffering, the people of Israel acknowledge their sin and cry out to God for restoration and repentance in the lament poems. (The Bible Project 2017.  https://thebibleproject.com/explore/lamentations/)

This Sunday, August 6: Exile Part 1

This summer we are taking an extended look at the journey of God’s people as recorded in some of the key books of the Old Testament. We believe that the whole story of God and his people ultimately points to and finds its fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ. The better we know this story the better we’ll know Jesus’ story and the better we’ll understand our own story as followers of Jesus. We continue our journey this week with the prophet Jeremiah.

Jeremiah
“Jeremiah announces that God will judge Israel’s sins with an exile to Babylon. And then, he lives through the horror of his predictions.

After years of straying from God’s ways, King Josiah guided the people back to godliness, with Jeremiah’s help. God speaks to the prophet. Since before he was born, God has known him intimately and has dedicated him to his service. He will support him in this ministry, despite his youth, inexperience, and apparent lack of authority.” (The Bible Project 2017.  https://thebibleproject.com/explore/jeremiah/)

This Sunday, July 27: The Rise and Fall of the Kingdom Part 3

This summer we are taking an extended look at the journey of God’s people as recorded in some of the key books of the Old Testament. We believe that the whole story of God and his people ultimately points to and finds its fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ. The better we know this story the better we’ll know Jesus’ story and the better we’ll understand our own story as followers of Jesus. We continue our journey this week with the books of 1st and 2nd Kings.

1st and 2nd Kings 

“David’s son Solomon leads Israel to greatness, only to fail and lead Israel to a civil war and ultimately towards destruction and exile.

After centuries of sojourning, struggles, and conquest, God’s promise to Abraham appears to finally be tangible – David and Solomon unite the Israelites into a single kingdom with descendants as “numerous as the stars.” Known as Kings 1 and 2 in English Bibles, The Book of Kings is originally a single book that recounts the rule of Israel’s kings from David’s son Solomon up until the time of Israel’s exile, the final result of Israel’s disobedience.”  (The Bible Project. 2017.https://thebibleproject.com/explore/1-kings/)

This Sunday, July 23: The Rise and Fall of the Kingdom Part 2

This summer we are taking an extended look at the journey of God’s people as recorded in some of the key books of the Old Testament. We believe that the whole story of God and his people ultimately points to and finds its fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ. The better we know this story the better we’ll know Jesus’ story and the better we’ll understand our own story as followers of Jesus. We continue our journey this week with the books of 1st and 2nd Samuel.

1st and 2nd Samuel 

“God reluctantly raises up kings to rule the Israelites. The first is a failure, and the second, David, is a faithful replacement, but even his reign is far from perfect.

Samuel is an exciting Book in the Bible. It’s split into two parts due to its large size. The Book of 1 Samuel focuses on the characters Samuel, Saul, and David and their roles in shaping God’s growing nation Israel. The book of 2 Samuel picks up where 1 Samuel left off. David mourns for the loss of Saul and Jonathan. His faithfulness to God ushers in a united Israel that finally defeats the surrounding Philistines and establishes a kingdom in the land.

When reading 1&2 Samuel, note the realistic depictions of real people. Each one has their own strengths, weaknesses, and goals just like we do.”  (The Bible Project. 2017. https://thebibleproject.com/explore/1-samuel/ )
