TUESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY

Tuesday Morning Bible Study will be taking a break for the holidays, but will start back up on January 8, 2019. Potential studies include looking at prophecy of Isaiah.   Other suggestions are welcome between now and then, just contact our pastor by email:  john@fpcmonroe.com

 Several years ago, we began a study of the Bible starting with Genesis, and have moved through Scripture  often verse by verse, chapter by chapter.  Some days we cover several chapters; other days, we don't even complete a chapter.  Every lesson is "stand-alone".

We've completed the Pentateuch (First 5 Books of the Old Testament), Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1st & 2nd Samuel, 1st & 2nd Kings, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, some of the Minor Prophets, Philippians, and a topical study on "Angels". 

This last semester we took a new look at the basis of Judeo-Christian Ethics, the 10 Commandments, and how the commandments speak to life today.We have looked at the different accounts of the 10 commandments given for a few weeks.  Then we began to study some of the commandments, starting at the 1st and what it means to fear God  with no others before Him,  then we looked at the 2nd and the logic of the idolatry with the golden calf and how we sometimes fall into such a logic today.   Then we discussed the importance of the 4th, the Sabbath and how desperately we need it now more than ever.  Last week we looked at the 10th and had a great discussion in understanding a world that covets all around us, just as it did for the Hebrews who wanted a King just like every other nation had and David who set his desires on a beautiful woman.   We finished the study out asking what it means to honor the Name of God, what it means to honor parents (even if they didn't seem worthy?) and how even living out the obvious commands of don't steal, murder, commit adultery, or bear false witness is a challenge to us all in ways we might not have thought of before.
