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, and Hebrews.
Our next five-week Biblical Elective Class will focus on 1 & 2 Kings. The books of 1 & 2 Kings span 400 years of Israel’s history, and what a history it is! There is the life of Solomon, the miracles of Elijah and Elisha, wars between nations, royal family dysfunction, political coups, and the fall and captivity of the northern and southern kingdoms. Most importantly there is God, working through the successes and failures of his chosen people to ultimately point us to the true King of Israel.
