Tuesday Bible studies

On Tuesdays, I go to a young adult’s Bible study at church. It’s lead by Dr. Noel Weeks (yep, the one, the only!) who does a wonderful job with the study material. The fellowship that we have together after the meeting is definitely one of the highlights.

One of the excellent aspects of learning from Dr. Weeks is that he is very objective in his approach to studying the Bible. That’s especially evident when it comes to studying touchy and somewhat controversial topics in the Bible, such as baptism (adult vs. infant, sprinkling vs. immersion) and the doctrine of salvation (Calvinism vs. Arminianism).

Tonight we started a 5-part series on Titus. This study was on Titus 1:1-9. It’s about how elders should behave and what their characteristics should be (godly, able to teach God’s Word); it also explains the practical implications of Paul’s commission (confirm their faith and encourage them in Christian living).

I learned a lot more, but what I’ve posted above is the main idea of today’s study. I’m also reading and meditating on Titus in my personal devotions; that will help greatly with understanding the content that Dr. Weeks will present.

‘Tis all for now. Good night y’all! Over and out.
