From Exile to Destruction of 2nd Temple

When reading the Gospels are you sometimes confused about what the Law of Moses actually said when compared to many 1st Century Jewish practices? Why were tax collectors so disparaged by many 1st century Jews? Who were the Essenes? Herod who? There were so many of them! What impact did the Maccabees, the Greeks, the Romans have on the 1st century world?

Lastly, why should we care?
*To understand late Jewish history.
*To enrich our understanding of the world Jesus lived in.
*To enhance the vibrancy of New Testament writings.

Come join John Rakestraw lead a discussion of world & Jewish history from the “Exile of Judea to the Destruction of the 2nd Temple.” The class will meet in the Overflow from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. during our summer Bible class quarter (June, July, August).

VBS 2018 – THANK YOU

A great big THANK YOU to all who had a part in making this year’s VBS a success!

THANK YOU to those who joined us to “EXCAVATE” into Scripture to find that what’s on the inside where Jesus looks is much more beautiful than what man sees on the outside!

We had a lot of fun making crafts, playing games, watching skits, and doing bible activities as we discovered the treasures of Jesus.

“…for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” –1 Samuel 16:7 (NASB)

SEE YOU IN 2019!
