Online and In-Person Bible Study

Pastor Randy’s Bible Study

Beginning Sunday, September 13 at 11:30am

In-person (sanctuary) and on Zoom

 

Topic: Books that did not make it into the Bible

We will start by looking at some of the books that were left out of the New Testament Canon. Specifically, we will look at the Didache, and what issues the early Christians were facing as Christianity became distinct from Judaism. We will also spend some time discussing the Shepherd of Hermas, First Clement and the Gospel of Thomas. Our goal for the first few weeks will be to understand the context in which the books for the New Testament were written, and what issues they (and other writings) were addressing. Handouts will be available for those in person, and electronic files will be available on our website at https://www.stphilip-co.org/bible-study/ for those connecting with us on Zoom.
