The Story Line of the Bible: The History of Redemption Sanctuary

The Bible introduces us to a myriad of people and events that may seem disconnected from one another. Yet there is a unified story line that ties the sixty-six books of the Bible together into a grand narrative with a focus on the central figure. This class will continue our tour through the story line of the Bible that will give us a glimpse of the “Big Picture” of the biblical narrative while placing key figures and events in the story line of the Old Testament from Joshua to Solomon.

The Apostle John was not only an eyewitness of Christ and his earthly ministry, but as the disciple who shared a very close relationship with the Savior, his letters provide keen insight into who Christ is, what his life and death mean, and how we should live in light of the Word becoming flesh. Join us as we look at John’s brief but important letters.

This Changed Everything: The Reformation at 500 Jim Rich Room 107 Since 2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of the Ninety-five Theses, which sparked the Protestant Reformation, we will be celebrating the Lord’s providential work in recovering the biblical doctrines of grace that had become obscured over time. We will look at the key people, issues, and events that form such an important part of our spiritual heritage.

On-going Classic Authors of the Church Jeff Castor & Fred Putnam Far narthex In this class we read and discuss works by ancient and modern Christian theologians and thinkers, ranging from the Church Fathers through C. S. Lewis. Each session begins with a question based on the week's reading, which leads into a conversation about the meaning and significance of what has been read.

Only Two Religions Jim Rich Room 107 A survey of modern culture’s religious landscape reveals an astonishingly diverse range of views. But beneath the surface, these seemingly disparate spiritualities share a common worldview, one that is radically opposed to the Christian faith. In this teaching series Dr. Peter Jones, Christian worldview scholar, examines the worldview and fundamental religious convictions that drive modern culture. He shows that in the end, there can be only two religions-worship of the Creator or worship of creation. This class is offered in conjunction with Dr. Jones’s visit to Covenant to preach on November 19, 2017.

This class will continue our tour through the unified story line of the Bible and will provide help in understanding it as a whole. This overarching view of the Bible will explain how its individual pieces fit together to tell one grand story. The focus will be on the key figures and events found from Elijah to Daniel.

The Meaning of Marriage Room 107 Modern culture would have us believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that marriage does not mean “‘til death do us part,” but only for as long as needs are being met; and that when serious differences arise, divorce is the best solution. But according to the Bible, all of these modern-day assumptions miss what marriage is all about. In The Meaning of Marriage Timothy Keller and his wife Kathy, draw a profound portrait of marriage from Scripture that neither idealizes nor rejects the institution but points us back to the relationship between God and man. The result is a vision for marriage that is refreshingly frank and unsentimental, yet hopeful and beautiful.
