This past semester, many women were blessed as we participated in a study by Jen Wilkens, of the Gospel Coalition. The book, 1 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ, contained key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ. We were challenged to memorize a key verse from the book and also read through the entire book at least once a week. Many of us went away with a much better understanding of the role of suffering in our lives.
This upcoming Winter/Spring semester, Patchwork will begin a new study, entitled “The Word of the Lord: Seeing Jesus in the Prophets” by Nancy Guthrie.
In the Old Testament, God spoke to his people through prophets—men specially called to speak God’s Word to his people. The New Testament makes it clear that such prophets, whether chastising or comforting, testified to Israel’s final redemption and ultimate hope: Jesus the Messiah.
Over ten weeks of guided personal Bible study, relevant teaching, and group discussion, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie will help you see the person and work of Christ in:
- Hosea’s willingness to redeem his unfaithful bride from slavery
- Isaiah’s divine King and suffering Servant, who will be punished for his people
- Daniel’s stone, not hewn by human hands, that will crush every human kingdom
- Ezekiel’s vision of a city where we will enjoy Jesus’s presence forever
Gain a fresh perspective on the message of the Old Testament prophets, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more when you join Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament!
Books are $8 and can be picked up at the church Welcome Center or on Tuesday morning of the first a.m. meeting. Questions?Find contact information here: Women’s Ministry Page
