New Bible Study
Come and join our Women’s Bible study on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8 PM in the Gathering Place beginning on January 17, 2023. We will be studying the book of Isaiah in a study written by Melissa Spoelstra. It is a seven-week study that will end on March 7 (we will not meet on February 14). Below is an excerpt from Melissa about our study.
Following God isn’t about striving; it’s about trusting.
As you study the chapters, Isaiah wrote—from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come—learn to rest in God's promises and grow in trust. In this 7-session study, Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him, you'll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.
More About Isaiah ---
The Jews claim Isaiah was from a royal family. He was a prophet primarily to the Kingdom of Judah, which passed through repeated seasons of rebellion and revival. He authored the book that bears his name between 739 and 681 B.C. Scholars point to the numerous times people in the New Testament, especially Jesus, quoted from Isaiah.
With commanding authority, Isaiah spans the ages, from the biblical past of God’s people to the hope of Israel’s bright future with the coming Messiah in New Jerusalem. He is sometimes called the “Evangelical Prophet” because of his emphasis on the Messiah.
