Books of the Bible
Mouse over any book of the New Testament to link to its lesson series.
Matthew - The first of the Gospels, it was written by a man who had taken good shorthand notes. Source of many familiar quotations, especially the Sermon on the Mount.
Mark - The Gospel which presents our Lord in short phrases and actions, so suited to the hurried minds of our time.
Luke - The Gospel of careful research; the scholar writing a careful and orderly account.
John - The Gospel by the disciple whom Jesus loved.
Acts - The follow-on study to the Life of Christ series. It's rather a lengthy one - but then again, St. Luke didn't exactly condense the book of Acts either.
Romans - The closest thing that any of the Apostles ever wrote to a theology textbook, it is the best exposition of grace. The study is rather detailed. The section on Romans 14 may surprise you.
1st Corinthians - The corrective letter of Paul to one of his favorite churches.
2nd Corinthians - The second letter to the church that lived in a culture very much like ours today.
Galatians - A letter to a church in need of guidance
Ephesians - The Queen of the Epistles, as the older scholars called it.
Philippians - Did you ever write a letter to an old friend? This is Paul's letter to his favorite church.
Colossians - A letter to experienced Christians.
1 Thessalonians - Letter to a church well loved by Paul
2 Thessalonians - Correcting false teaching about the Day of the Lord
First Timothy - This is a letter from an old man, pouring into his young son in the faith that which he knows to be of greatest importance to a leader in the church.
Second Timothy - Paul's farewell letter to his apprentice.
Philemon - At one lesson, it is much too short. But it is the letter which drips of Christian courtesy.
Hebrews - The link between the Old Testament and the New Testament.
James - The Proverbs of the New Testament
1st Peter - The fiery workingman of the New Testament.
2nd Peter - Warning against heresies to come.
1st John - The love letter of an old man, deeply in love with his Lord
2nd John - A string of pearls, much neglected.
3rd John - Short, dealing with a solid Christian and an ambitious one.
Jude - A stern warning from the brother of our Lord, very similar to 2nd Peter. Often ignored today, it is another warning concerning false leaders and teachers in the church.
Revelation - Some caution must be advised on this one. A "theological" caution first - this study presents all three of the major views on Revelation, and selects none of them (or any other). If your mind is already made up, don't bother. A "technical" caution next - the work was originally created in PowerPoint, and is therefore very graphics intense. If you do not have a high speed connection, this may tax your patience.
Ezra & Nehemiah - The story of the second Exodus; the return to Jerusalem, the rebuilding of the Temple and city walls.
Esther - The only book in the Bible which does not mention the name "God," it has no miracles - but is a great lesson in the providence of God.
Ruth - A love story - between a man and a woman. A love story which foreshadows the love between Christ the Kinsman-Redeemer and his bride, the church.
Ecclesiastes - to everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.
Daniel -The key to prophecy. Yes, we have a lesson in the lion's den.
Jonah - The fish story of the Old Testament - and still worth the time.
Micah 6:8 - What does the Lord require of thee?
