The Bible Speaks

The Bible is God’s communication to man, and in that sense we can say that the Bible “speaks” to us. The thinking person who has questions about life, the world, and the future will find answers in the Bible. In this course you will discover first why we can trust the Bible as coming from God, and then some of the main things it says about God and our relationship to Him—in short, the basic teachings of the Christian faith.

Source of Life (The Gospel of John)

“In Him was life . . .” With grand simplicity, the apostle John begins his account of the earthly life of Jesus Christ by boldly stating one of its most significant themes—that Christ is the Creator and Source of all life, both physical and spiritual. Among the nearly 40 uses of the word in the book is one where Christ Himself declares, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” May your study of John’s gospel help you grow in appreciation of the Lord Jesus Christ, whom to know is life eternal (John 17:3).

The Coming King (The Gospel of Matthew)

What this world needs is a King who will rule it with firmness, wisdom, and compassion. This is the kind of King that God has planned for this world. His name is Jesus Christ, and He is God’s Son. But Jesus was rejected when He came to earth the first time, as you will see in your study of Matthew's account of Jesus' life.

Matthew evidently loved "King Jesus" and looked forward to the day when He will reign on earth. Our hope is that this passion and prospect will grip your heart as well.
