Bible Institute

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15

The hope of the Bible Institute is that what you learn in the classroom will be applied across all areas of life. When we know more about who God is and what He expects of us as His disciples, the more that our desire to share His love with others will grow as well.

2 KINGS (PART II)  ALIVE!

The Spring 2022 quarter will feature 2 Kings  (Part II).  This class will study 2 Kings 6:24–13:15 in the seventh book of the Old Testament Books of History.

Second Kings holds a unique place in the history of Israel. We continue our interactive study in the seventh Old Testament Book of History, 2 Kings 6:24–13:15, beginning with the role of Elisha in the Syrian War against Samaria, ending a terrible famine. Then, we see the reigns of Jehoram and Ahaziah, in Judah. Next, we have the reign of Jehu, after he was anointed as king by a messenger of Elisha and charged with eliminating the house of Ahab. Then Athaliah became the only queen of Judah, killing all but one of her grandsons after her son was killed. She thought she wiped out all of her grandsons. She reigned for seven years. Then, the hidden prince, Jehoash, became king, and Queen Athaliah was slain. Jehoash became king as a boy and was mentored by the High Priest. As long as his adoptive father, the High Priest, influenced him, he was a godly king. When his protector died, he began to drift away from the ways of the Lord. He wanted the repair of the temple to begin as a child king, however, repairs were not made for another twenty-three years. As an adult, he had the repairs underway. Next, Jehu’s son Jehoahaz reigned in Israel, doing evil in the sight of the Lord. Jehoahaz’ son, Jehoash, was the next king of Israel. He committed the sins of Jeroboam but was friendly toward Elisha, whose life ended due to a wasting illness. Jeroboam II reigned after Jehoash died, but we end with just that information about him.

The Doctrine of the Word of God

The class on the Doctrine of the Word of God will be an interactive study of what the Bible teaches us about itself. The class will be a benefit to anyone seeking a foundational understanding of what the Bible is. We will deal with several common questions about the Bible.

The class on the Doctrine of the Word of God will be an interactive study of what the Bible teaches us about itself. The class will be a benefit to anyone seeking a foundational understanding of what the Bible is. We will deal with several common questions about the Bible.

What is the Word of God? We will study the aspects of the Word of God as the person of God and speech by God.

Why does the Bible have a fixed number of books? We will look at the historical process of compiling the Bible into the 66 books that we have today. We will see why the books that are in the Bible were included and others were excluded.

How can we know that the Bible is the Word of God? We will examine the authority of Scripture: what the Bible claims for itself as being the authentic Word of God.

Is the Bible free from any errors? On the basis of the authenticity of the Bible as the Word of God, we will see that the Bible teaches that God cannot lie and, therefore, His words are completely true and without error in any part.

Can ordinary people understand the Bible? We will study the fact that for those who God has caused to be teachable by being born again, the teachings of the Bible are understandable. We will briefly encounter the study of Hermeneutics, or the biblical rules of interpretation.

Why is the Bible necessary to know God? We will discuss how the Bible is necessary to come to saving faith, live an authentic Christ-centered life and know God’s will.

Is the Bible all we need to know God? We will examine the sufficiency of Scripture. This means that Scripture contains all the words of God we need for salvation and for trusting and obeying God. We are not allowed to take away from or add to Scripture or seek any further revelation.

Class Highlights

The purpose of this class is to help you get a firm grip on the word of God and its author. We will be using two additional resources along with the Bible which are:  Systematic Theology and the Systematic Theology Workbook by Wayne Grudem. You can order them new or used on Amazon. Please contact me if you wish to purchase them in class. Also, please bring a three-ring binder. If you want to further your understanding of the Bible as a whole , this class will do that.
