Introducing 1 John
On the 26th, we will have an “unofficial” class where we will introduce 1 John. Who, when, what, why, etc.? The next Sunday is Mission Sunday, and then our first “official” class will be on March 11th.
I really prefer a textual study for classes (and sermons, for that matter). It is not that I don’t enjoy topical stuff, such as a study of prayer, but I like how a textual study requires you to confront and deal with what we somtimes call difficult passages of scripture. The textual approach makes one cover the scriptures as they come.
I have a syllabus for the quarter. We will try to keep to it, but we will also be flexible, if necessary, as we work through the book. Click here to get your copy.
