People of a certain character are the subject of Bob’s sermon this week.
Working from the text of 1 Timothy, Bob talks about the character traits required to be a special leader in the church.
Check out the following podcast to hear the sermon. Unfortunately Bob’s mic periodically cuts out in this recording. I hope this doesn’t ruin your enjoyment of this otherwise wonderful message.
So is there a special office in the church called deacon?
In this week’s lesson, Bob talks about our use of words in the Bible and weather they are ‘translated’ or ‘transliterated’.
Using the scripture of Paul, Bob unpacks how the translations from the greek to english can change the word slightly from the original.
To help us understand this he reads sections of scripture and provides a more literal translation for us to consider as he helps us study and understand.
This week we have a special podcast double bill with guest speaker Marty Koonce who’s in the country for a few weeks visiting his supporting churches and reconnecting with his U.S. brothers and sisters. For those of you who don’t know Marty, he and his family have been working in Toga and Rwanda for twenty years on missions to bring Christ Jesus to the people of these countries.
His record for success is monumental and his gifts of language and deep love and understanding of God has served and saved thousands upon thousands of people. Listen to these podcasts of his Adult Bible class and sermon to learn more about Marty, his family and his missions in Africa.
