Current Study: 1 Samuel
1 Samuel is a study into the history of the Isrealites. Samuel is a prohet and a judge of Isreal. He was the last judge to rule Israel. The Israelites wanted to be like the other nations around them. 1 Samuel depicts how Israel gained what they wanted at that time, a king. The question we ask is "Why would you want a king when you have the true and living God?"  This study also gives information on the life of King Saul and King David, including the well know Bible story of David and Goliath.

1 Samuel 1-15: King Saul
1 Samuel 16: King David

Key scripture: 1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

Past Studies:
Gospel According to John

John is the 4th gospel. It follows the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John was an elderly man who was an apostle of Jesus and is referred to as the "beloved." John also wrote the book of Revelation. The book of John is different from the other gospels in that it portrays Jesus as Son of God. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1)  "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)  Continuing the evidence of Jesus's position this book shares of Jesus's baptism, 7 miracles, prayer to God, resurrection, and post resurrection sightings before the ascension.

The principal divisions of the Gospel according to John are the following:

  1. Prologue (1:118)
  2. The Book of Signs (1:1912:50)
  3. The Book of Glory (13:120:31)
  4. Epilogue: The Resurrection Appearance in Galilee (21:125)



Book of Joshua
Joshua means Jesus or Jesus saves. His name was Hoshea (Numbers 13:8 and Deuteronomy 32:44). He is the "Jesus-like" character of the Old Testament because he actually takes people to the Promise Land.  This book is Joshua's testimony of what God had done during his life. Joshua remains humble in his writing. This book deals with the conquering, possessing, and dividing of the Promise Land.
