  • Colossians Introduction
    The story of the letter Every book of the Bible speaks of the same God differently, highlighting different aspects of theology. Colossians is rich in its Christological focus. One scholar says, “Colossians is one of Paul’s most elegant yet compact epistles in the New Testament.” The letter speaks of Christ as Lord over all creation, even including the invisible realm. Christ has also obtained redemption for his people, uniting them in his death, resurrection, and fullness. There are many questions […]
  • 1 Samuel Introduction
    We are about to begin a study on 1 Samuel for our Wednesday night bible study. 1 Samuel is a phenomenal book that looks at the establishment of the monarch in Israel. The setting of 1 Samuel is a dark and depressing time, following the time of the Judges. The repeated phrase “In those days there was no king in Israel” (Jud 17:6, 18:1, 19:1, 21:25). However, the more bloodcurdling phrase that is uttered is, “everyone did what was right […]
  • Yet I Will Rejoice
    Yet I Rejoice- Habakkuk 3:1-19 We come now to the last week in Habakkuk. It never ceases to amaze me when studying the scriptures, how rich and precious each book, verse, and even word is.

Habakkuk gives a glimpse into the life of a prophet. Not only does he proclaim the word of […]
  • The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith
    Habakkuk 2:2-20- God’s second response We have now read Habakkuk’s first lament (1:1-4) consisting of the question, why is there wickedness within Israel, and what are you going to do about it? God’s first response (1:5-11) consists of the confusing but straightforward answer, “I am raising up the wicked and evil nation of the Chaldeans.” Habakkuk is then driven to his second complaint (1:12-2:1) which asks the question, how can you solve injustice with injustice? You made a covenant with […]
  • Are you Not from Everlasting?
    Habakkuk 1:12-2:1- Habakkuk’s Second Complaint We have looked at Habakkuk and his first lament to God, how long will you let this injustice continue (Hab 1:1-4). God’s response is simple, I will deal with it suddenly and very soon (Hab 1:5). However, it was not in the way that Habakkuk thought he would handle it. God was raising up the unexpected nation of Chaldeans or the Babylonians. The Chaldeans were bitter, fierce, and impetuous (Hab 1:6). They will come through […]
