We are restarting our Saturday morning class at 6:30 am on October 21, 2023. Our theology study group meets every other Saturday morning at 6:30am, generally on the opposite weekend of the Sunday morning 1689 London Baptist Confession Study. Typically we have around 10-20 people meeting in the fellowship hall, plus 5-10 from around North America joining in by Zoom. Reach out to our pastor for details and to join the mailing list, so you know what to read in advance. Optionally, join us for breakfast afterwards at a local restaurant for fellowship.
We will be studying The Person of Christ: An Introduction by Stephen J. Wellum.
“In stark contrast to the diverse views of Jesus in the first century and today, Scripture, along with the creeds of the church, presents a consistent, clear answer to Jesus’s question. Jesus is the divine Son, the second person of the triune Godhead, the Lord of glory, who in time assumed a human nature, so that now and forevermore he is the eternal “Word made flesh” (cf. John 1:1, 14). And he did this because it’s only one individual—God the Son incarnate—who can bring about God’s eternal plan by securing our redemption, executing judgment on sin, and establishing a new creation by the ratification of a new covenant in his life, death, and resurrection.
