We meet every second and fourth Thursday at 6 p.m.
 
Are you interested in interacting more meaningfully with the Bible?
 
Would you like to engage with the Word more and see yourself in the story? This is what our Women’s Bible Study group has been experiencing through the method of Storying!
 
-A Bible story is read or told by memory to the group.
-The learners then retell the story as best as they can.
-Someone then reads the story from the Bible.
-The group then discusses the what/so what/how/the implications
and applications of the story.
 
It is an effort to practice the oral tradition of the Bible and discover what familiar and not so familiar stories are saying to us. Our series for the remainder of the year will be “Christ in the Bible.”
 
[Jesus] said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you:
Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses.”
Luke 24:44

There is no finer teacher on whether Jesus is to be found in the pages of the Old Testament than the teaching of our Lord Jesus himself. It was He who said in John 5:39, “You diligently study the Scriptures [which at that time were the 39 books of the Old Testament] …. These are the Scriptures that testify about me.” In Luke 24: 25-27, Jesus rebuked Cleopas, and that other unnamed disciple, as they walked along the road to Emmaus on that first Easter Sunday, “How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not Christ have to suffer these things and then enter His glory? And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, [Jesus] explained to them what was said in all the [Old Testament] Scriptures concerning himself.” It is only right that we should find that Jesus was present in the Old Testament. It was accurately predicted that He would come first as our Savior, and then in a later second coming, would appear as the King supreme over all the earth. Such an unusual state of affairs is possible because He was, He is, and He is the One to come!
