Sunday class, 10:10 a.m. on May 6, 13 & 20
Led by Skip Herrington
When you and I open ourselves to the Scriptures, we open ourselves to be changed, not to accumulate information. When we open the Scriptures God plans to teach us something in a special way. When we study the epistle commonly called The Letter to the Ephesians during the 10 a.m. hour the first three Sundays of May, we will focus on the intent of the one who wrote this letter. We will seek to hear what he is saying, not what we would like him to say.
The study of Ephesians will include a summary of the historical setting in which this letter was written, a discussion of the question of authorship, the theme and structure of Ephesians, and an exploration of the content of the letter itself.
That you may have a rich study experience I encourage you to read the entire six chapters of Ephesians every day. Pray that God’s Spirit will enlighten the eyes of your heart (Eph. 1:18). Expect to hear new things in new ways. Please understand: this isn’t “homework.” It’s not a requirement. But reading Ephesians at one sitting will help to put the structure and flow of this amazing “gospel” in your mind.
I’m looking forward to this opportunity that together we may “know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge so that (we) may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:19).
