In John 5, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees’ use of Scripture. They searched the Bible for principles to live by, when they should have been searching them to find Jesus. Jesus said, “it is they [Scripture] that bear witness about me” (5:45). Jesus then explained how Moses, when he wrote the first five books of the Bible, wrote about Jesus (5:46). The Gospel of Luke explains how Jesus on the Road to Emmaus, taught his disciples “everything written about,” him from the whole Old Testament.
Understanding that Jesus is the subject of the whole Bible, our first URC Bible study will take place December 17 at 6:30. If you would like to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ taught from every page of Scripture, then you are going to like this Reformed Bible study. My good friend John Earl has kindly offered to host this study at 4013 Bellecrest, Missoula, MT 59801. If you are coming and want info on how to find his house, he asked that you call him at (406) 544–8736, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
