Jesus view of the Bible, part #2

We often read about the Pharisees and the Sadducees when we read the Bible, but the extent of our learning about them usually stops with noting that the Sadducess did not believe in the afterlife and the Pharisees did. But there is SO much more to their history and differences and when you learn about it, it will greatly deepen your understanding of the Scriptures.

In this lesson, in addition to learning that, you’ll learn about how Jesus interacted with them on questions about the authority of scripture, plus you’ll see how the Apostle Paul’s heritage as a Pharisee influenced his teaching for the rest of his life.

Explanatory note: before you either listen to the audio or view the PowerPoint, we wanted to you know that most of the lessons are not this long in the actual class. The recording was made after the class so I could put in additional information.

Jesus view of the Bible, part #1

“It stands written.”

As this lesson will show you, this statement was a phrase Jesus used many times that showed his belief in the trust-worthiness of the Scriptures.

In addition, Jesus talked about events in the Scriptures, such as the story of Jonah and Noah’s ark that people doubt today and he talked about them not only as true history, but used them as a teaching tool for future events.

Take some time to listen to or watch the lesson and learn about how Jesus truly believed the Bible as inerrant, infallible and totally trustworthy for all of life. The audio and video files, plus the written notes follow:
