We looked last time at the “Day of the Lord” in the book of Joel and saw that very similar language can be used to describe various judgments of God. Today, we look at a specific description of judgment in Matthew 24 and see which judgment it is. We will examine a couple of different ideas about it.
The book of Joel is quite short but uses the phrase “day of the Lord” repeatedly throughout the prophecy. What is meant by this phrase that is used here but also around 30 times throughout the Old and New Testaments? We hope to get a better idea of that in this class.

In this class, we finish our examination of the imprecatory psalms (those that ask God to bring curses on our enemies) and look at Psalms 69 and 109 in particular.
September 22, 2020
In this class, we look at an example of imprecatory language (calling down curses on someone’s enemies) in Psalm 58 and discuss how this type of language fits with the teaching of Christ. Lord willing, we will look at more Psalms that focus on this type of language in the next class.

There are a few Psalms that have the history of God’s work with Israel as their main focus. We want to look at some of those today and see what purpose there can be for looking at this history. We will use Psalms 135, 105, 78, and 106. We may not have time to get through them all, but we will see.
In this lesson we look at a few of the Psalms that focus on praising God and giving thanks to Him and see what the reasons are that are given in these Psalms. Today’s Psalms are 100, 103, 87, 148, and 136.
A great many of the Psalms express trust in God. Some of them have trust in God as their central idea. These are what we want to look at today. We will use Psalms 3, 4, 23, and 121 as examples.
September 8, 2020
In this class, we look at some of the Psalms that demonstrate how to properly “complain” to God. We look at Psalms 6, 12, 38, and 79.
September 3, 2020
In this class, we a couple of the Psalms that focus on the king of Israel and what we can learn from them. We will save the clearly Messianic Psalms that fit into the kingship or royal Psalms for another class.
In this lesson, we look at some of the Wisdom Psalms and see what kind of wisdom they teach us. We also should see some more details about Hebrew poetry and how God uses that structure to teach us.
In this class we look at an overview of the Psalms. What is the purpose of the Psalms? What do we have to know in order to understand the Psalms properly? What do we know about the men who wrote the Psalms?

In this class, we look at Colossians 4:2-6. After working on our own lives to truly make Christ all to us, what must our focus be? Did Christ only die for us? If He is living in us, we must be busy taking His gospel to others as well so that they can be complete to stand in Him also.
July 30, 2020
In this class, we look at Colossians 3:18-4:1 which applies the things we are to put on in Christ to our relationships, especially within the home.
July 28, 2020
This time we look at Colossians 3:12-17 and see what those who have been raised with Christ are to put on.
July 23, 2020
This is our second lesson on Colossians 3:1-11. In this lesson our focus is on the things we are to put off since we have died with Christ.
July 21, 2020
Our text today is Colossians 3:1-11. What does it mean that Christ is our life? How is He all and in all? We will look at this idea in this first of two lessons on this text.
July 16, 2020
The today is Colossians 2:13-23. When we understand Christ and our relationship with Him properly, how does that effect our thinking about what it really means to be holy? Are there things we need to be doing beyond what Christ taught, such as some laws from the Old Testament that will make us better Christians? Let’s look at it together.
The text today is Colossians 2:4-12. Where do we find completeness? Should we look to philosophy? Tradition? Let’s look at this together.
Our text today is Colossians 1:24-2:3. Why was Paul suffering? What work was he so involved in and why was it so important to him? What riches were found in the work he was doing? Let’s look at these things together.
July 7, 2020
Colossians in many ways is focused on the greatness of Christ and how fulfillment is only found in Him. Today, we will look at Colossians 1:13-23 that really demonstrates why Christ has preeminence (first place) in everything.
July 2, 2020
What do we learn about Paul’s prayer for the Colossian brethren? As we look at Colossians 1:3-12, I believe we will see some of the main points of this letter and what we need in our lives as well.
What do we know about the brethren in Colossae? Why was this letter sent to them? We examine the connections between Colossians and Philemon as well as seeing what we can learn from the Laodiceans.
