What's In the Bible & Why Do I Care?

Series: What's In the Bible & Why Do I Care?
January's Lessons: What's in the Bible & How Do I Use It?
January 20 -January 27 Chapter 1 How to Use the Bible


We studied this week about revelation. There is General Revelation and Special Revelation. This week we concentrated on General Revelation. General Revelation is related to natural ways in which God reveals God's existence. We experienced "Aha" moments as we each personally read from these scripture and learned that God revealed Himself through Creation, History, & Humanity: Creation: Ps 19:1; Ro 1:20; Acts 14:15-17; History: Job 12:13-25; Ps 98:2; Is 40:5; Acts 4:15-17 Humanity: Acts 17:22; Ro 2:14; Ps 19, Mt 5:45, Ro 1:20.

We also learned about differing Bible translations and paraphrases, about the Apocrypha, and how to find a reference in the Bible.

We learned the 1st 5 books of the Bible known as the Books of Moses and the Law/the Torah/the Pentateuch: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
