28 Lessons

Rev. John Scharlemann

The Revelation to John attracts more curiosity than any other book of the Bible.  A simple explanation for this curiosity is inwardly we all wish to find some specific indication of our own future.  To some degree, Revelation fulfills this curiosity, but only to the extent that Scripture as a whole prophesies the destructiveness of sin and the promise of man's salvation through Jesus Christ.  John's vision is comprised of one general revelation, that is, the triumph of God's children over evil. Updated 2016

parables cover_edited.jpg

 Rev. Michael Kasting

Jesus knew how to wrap the message of the kingdom in images and stories from everyday experiences.  He took His hearers to the kitchen, the grainfield, and the road to Jericho.  He spoke of banquet halls and courtrooms.  Some of His pictures were simple.  Others required careful thought and explanation.  His parables reveal the wondrous details of God's reign among us.  In this course we sit at the feet of Jesus and let Him teach us!
