Starting on Thursday, January 7, at 7 PM, we’re going to explore the unseen realm of the spiritual world around us. What does the Bible teach about this spiritual world, and why should it matter to us who live in a rationalistic, scientific 21st century? During this Bible Study we’ll also look at the worldview of 2nd Temple Judaism, which was the spiritual worldview that St. Paul, all of the Apostles, and the Early Church Fathers believed in. We’ll look at some of the writings written during this time – between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament, which were sometimes quoted in the New Testament and were well-loved by the Apostolic Fathers.

We’re going to peak into a world that’s going to hold many surprises for us. It will be a challenging 8 weeks, but one that will be spiritually enriching, at the end of which you will have a greater understanding of God’s overall purpose for this world, and you will find that you will start to understand many of the Scriptures that didn’t seem to make sense before.  Please remember to bring your Bibles – we will be reading through many Scriptures together.  Maximum attendance is 30 people.  There is no fee for this course.
