In the Bible Institute, we want to regularly teach one of the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). This course is on the gospel of John. John begins by referencing eternity past and continuing on through the days following the resurrection of Jesus. John 20:30-31 records the purpose of the book. ‘Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.’ John records 7 ‘I am’ statements of Jesus and 7 signpost miracles that powerfully affirm the life and ministry of Jesus. The study of this gospel is a rich reflection on the person and work of Christ with profound application for all of us today. The ministry of the Northside Bible institute is to learn, love and live the word of God as we bring people to Jesus and learn to follow Him together. This class is meant to aid in that process.
With the popularity of “The Left Behind” film and book series it is no doubt that End Times Theology or Eschatology is of great interest to most Christians. However, the question lingers…Is the theology of these books and movies sound? Do they portray the message of Scripture or are they fascinating fiction?
For eight weeks we will work our way through topics such as the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70, the secret rapture of the church, the millennium, the anti-Christ, the beast, Christ’s return, and the new heavens and new earth.
Feel free to ask us anything.
