Pastor Steve's Class
We're currently studying the book of Psalms. Many things have been said of the Psalms, one of the most beloved books in the Bible. Some of these are: “The book of Psalms can revolutionize our devotional life, our family patterns, and the fellowship and witness of the church of Jesus Christ.” Willem VanGemeren
“We have now before us one of the choicest parts of the Old Testament, wherein there is so much of Christ and his gospel, as well as of God and his law, that it has been called the summary of both Testaments.” Matthew Henry
“No single book of Scripture, not even of the New Testament, has, perhaps, ever taken such hold on the heart of Christendom.” J.J. Stewart Perowne
“The psalms teach us about God and our relationship with Him; that is the heart of theology. The Psalter may be thought of as a portrait gallery of God, presenting us with multiple images of who God is.” Tremper Longman
“The Psalter is the prayer book of Jesus Christ in the truest sense of the word. He prayed the Psalter and now it has become his prayer for all time…we understand how the Psalter can be prayer to God and yet God’s own Word, precisely because here we encounter the praying Christ…because those who pray the psalms are joining in with the prayer of Jesus Christ, their prayer reaches the ears of God. Christ has become their intercessor…” Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
We meet in the second room on the right of the first floor of the Educational Building at 9:30. Bibles are provided. See Newsletter for Schedule.
