The Journey
From Eden created to Eden restored.

Introduction

The word of God reveals His character.  The enemy of good has tempted us to fear God as a severe judge with a harsh, exacting and unforgiving nature.  Our connect group is on a quest to rediscover the true loving character of God as manifest in each book of the Bible and revealed in the life and death of His Son.  Instead of the circular voyage of life that many seem to be enamored with these days, this quest, the Journey, has a historical beginning and an ultimate goal - from Eden created to Eden restored.

The Journey meets from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm via Zoom online conferencing:

November 28, 2020 - Hebrews and Jude

Teacher: Dee Briggs

I will be substituting for Rebecca on Sabbath, for the Hebrews and Jude lesson, and I’d like to get some stimulus info out there to the class members like:

PLEASE READ JUDE A COUPLE OF TIMES. WE WILL BEGIN WITH JUDE.

THEN ALSO READ AS MUCH OF HEBREWS AS YOU CAN. NOTICE HOW THE BOOK PROGRESSES FROM JESUS BEING THE BETTER REVELATION OF GOD, THE BETTER PRIEST/MEDIATOR, THE BETTER COVENANT, SACRIFICE, AND EVEN SANCTUARY.

PLEASE WRITE OUT AT LEAST ONE QUESTION FOR HEBREWS AND ONE FOR JUDE.

AND, HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

BLESSINGS,
DEE BRIGGS
