Week 10 Review (POPS-Getting a Grip on the Bible)

With the background for the story now set by the Prologue, the story of what God is doing in the world slows down to focus on a single family – the family of Abraham. Before doing this though, the story teller makes sure that we do not miss how it is that what follows is directly connected to what has come before. The Prologue ends by telling us that Abraham is connected to Noah, Noah is connected to Adam/Eve, and thus Abraham is connected to Adam/Eve. God is continuing what he has started. God is at work in and through his creation and history…

Week 1 Review (POPS-Getting a Grip on the Bible)

I put together this class for one basic reason – to help people become better familiar with God’s Word. Consider the following statement from The Barna Group, a Christian polling and research group:

Bible reading has become the religious equivalent of sound-bite journalism. When people read from the Bible they typically open it, read a brief passage without much regard for the context, and consider the primary thought or feeling that the passage provided. If they are comfortable with it, they accept it; otherwise, they deem it interesting but irrelevant to their life, and move on. There is shockingly little growth evident in people’s understanding of the fundamental themes of the scriptures and amazingly little interest in deepening their knowledge and application of the biblical principles.
