Join Us in Our New Study? (Saved! Rescued from God, by God, and for God)

Friends: A small group of serious Bible students will be completing our study of the book of Job (entitled With Friends Like These . . . Job’s Friends and Religious Foolishness) on Sunday, October 18th. We’ve gone through study questions and have discussed the entire book of Job. But we’re ready for our next study together.

That next study will be my short book Saved! Rescued from God, by God, and for God. It is available on Amazon here. I will send a pdf version of it to any who email me and ask to be included in the study.

The book has seven chapters plus an epilogue — so we will meet for eight Sunday nights. I’m not sure when the course will start (maybe in a couple of weeks) and we will meet every other Sunday night when the course starts. We will have a one-hour Zoom session to discuss the assigned chapter. There is no charge for the course, although gift cards to Outback are welcome! Join us? If so, please email me at: theoprof@bellsouth.net and indicate your intention.

One-on-One Online Bible Study: A Ministry Suggestion! (a new update for 2020)

Friends: I believe this challenge is worth issuing one more time!

How do we encourage and minister to other believers when we can’t be together face-to-face? One way that has encouraged me is to do a kind of online Bible study together. I’m not talking about buying some expensive curriculum or installing some new “app” or software on your computer. Here’s what my friend and I have done:

We read a chapter of Ephesians each week. That’s it! We read the chapter once each day and then send a brief email to each other on Sunday sharing a thought or two that we’ve gotten from our “study.” Granted, it’s not in-depth, but there is no substitute for the reading and re-reading of God’s Word!

So, just a thought — is there someone at a distance that you could discuss this idea of doing an online Bible study together? You’ve got 66 books in the Bible to tackle! Or you could follow a theme together (such as the glory of God or the parables of the Lord Jesus, etc).

I’m looking forward to the next topic or book my friend and I choose to read together. Want to try this idea with us?

With Friends Like These . . . (A Study of the Book of Job) Week #6

“Miserable counselors are you all!”, says Job to his friends as he suffers from his trials — and their lectures! Those of you who have signed up for our online Bible study of this great Old Testament book are ready for your next set of study questions, right?

Study Questions for Class #6 (for Sept. 20th):

We will be going over these questions on Sunday night, September 20th. We will cover Round 1 of Zophar’s Zingers (Job 11; Job’s response: Job 12-14). If you wish to join us, please go to: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84055712719 at 8 pm (EST).

1. What startling statement does Zophar make to Job in 11:6?

2. What is guaranteed to Job, according to Zophar, if he repents? (see 11:13-19).

3. Please take a few notes on what is called “Prosperity Theology” to discuss with each other.

4. Regarding Job’s response (Chs. 12-14), how does Job defend himself? What is it he wants? What does he accuse God of doing in 14:19?
