Study for Fall 2018

“But as for you, speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine.”
Titus 2:1 NASB

Daniel

This class is a chapter-by-chapter, verse-by-verse study of the book of Daniel. Known as the “Apocalyptic Book of the Old Testament,” Daniel holds the keys that unlock understanding of the book of Revelation, as the two partner each other.

Some of the main topics of the book are the sovereignty of God, the biblical accounts of secular historical events, the preservation of Israel while in exile, and detailed accounts of major prophetical events.

Pastoral Epistles

The Pastoral Epistles of 1&2 Timothy, Titus and Philemon are indispensable guides for contemporary ministry. In this course, each book is exposited in order to gain an understanding of the biblical material. Additionally, major themes from the books and practical application are discussed with the goal of better equipping the student for ministry.

New Testament Greek 1

This is designed to equip the student with the basic skills of reading and translating Biblical Greek at the beginning level. The emphasis is upon building vocabulary and learning the basics of biblical Greek grammar so that the student acquires the necessary skills to read and translate selected biblical texts. Students are introduced to the pronunciation, morphology, and syntax of biblical Greek.

Beginning with learning the basic building blocks of the language such as the alphabet, vowels, nouns, adjectives, articles, prepositions, pronouns, and verbs, etc. Through building vocabulary throughout the course and learning basic sentence syntax, the students begin to use their acquired skills in translating selected texts.

Theology

This class consist of a survey of the main doctrines of the Christian faith. Attention will be given to the topics that include: divine authority and revelation, the nature and theological role of the Bible, the existence and nature of God, the three Persons of the Trinity, angels, man, sin, salvation, church, and eschatology.

Prayer

All relationships involve communication and our relationship with God is no different. To grow in that relationship we must spend time in His presence and there is no greater opportunity available to the believer than prayer. One cannot be equipped to do the work of God without a rich prayer life. This course takes a broad look at prayer using the Bible as the primary source of instruction.

Hermeneutics

This class is designed to instruct students in the foundational principles and practices of Bible interpretation, giving you a framework with which to view all of Scripture. The inductive method of Bible study will be taught with attention paid to the various features of a text that contribute to the interpretative process. A special emphasis will be given to the role of biblical inerrancy, inspiration, objective meaning, problems in Hermeneutics, and the nature of Scripture itself.

Men’s Stewardship

Teachers, pastors, and various speakers, share from Scripture and exhort the men coming alongside them in their Christian walk. Topics pertaining specifically to men and their role as Scripture indicates are discussed.

“…so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine…”

Heart Beats…from afar

“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26 ESV 
June 15, 2016, two days after being discharged from the Philippine Heart Center (finally) here I am back home in Tagaytay. Altogether I had spent forty days and nights under the watchful of care of God. He used people who were more than willing to be used by His Spirit.

Those people begin with my wife, Nenita, our children, from our eldest son along with his wife, to our youngest. Friends and family from near and from across the Pacific. On May 1, my wife, along with our daughter- in-law insisted  I be taken to the ER “just to make sure it was nothing serious.”  This was all because I had looked ashen and had shortness of breath that evening. Lo and behold, it was serious enough that I found myself in an ICU for the first time ever. And so the journey of my heart began.
Reflecting back, it wasn’t really something I was pleased with. I mean, who wants to be confined in a hospital, its only for sick people, right? It was only later the truth spoken of in Jeremiah 17:9, about the condition of the human heart had meat and meaning to my condition then, before the operation, and even now.Dude, mine was sick to “da max.” I needed a major heart “overhaul.”

a visit after a month at the heart center. Thank you ladies and men.

It took more than a surgeon to rectify this ole heart of mine, I was under the care of One who had the steadiest hand of all when it comes to affairs of the heart.
