In Biblical Elective classes, we dig into certain books of the Bible, learning how to make the most of our Bible reading.
We not only explore the content and context of various books, but also learn basic guidelines for understanding their original meaning and modern day application. Previous electives have included studies in the books of Genesis, Colossians, Job, 1 Peter, Revelation, Ruth, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Kings, and Acts.
Our next Biblical Elective will focus on the Old Testament book of Esther. Esther's life seemed completely out of her control. She was orphaned at a young age, objectified for her beauty, abducted, sex-trafficked, forced into a bad marriage, threatened by a wicked government, and condemned for her race and beliefs. Then she saved a nation. The story of Esther in the Bible is better than any Hollywood blockbuster. It is a true story, but it is not ultimately her story. It is God’s story. And your story. The Apostle Paul wrote, "Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” We would love for you to join us as we listen to what the Book of Esther teaches us about hope in today's uncontrollable world.
