The truth is that at the outset of the Church, there was no Bible.  Oh, there were the volumes of what we call the Old Testament – the Jewish Bible – which tells us the story of how God worked in the world with His chosen people, Israel, but it only took them up to the time of Jesus, and the pre-church era they were creating, that was flowing into the establishment of the Church that they were in and that we know today.  As we read through the gospel records and the writings of Paul and the other apostles, we get their bird’s-eye-view of the birth of the church, and we get to hear the Holy Spirit inspired teachings that they were being built on, and that carries us on today.  I love this stuff!  So, this month I start with a couple more of Paul’s writings, and then move into the book of Hebrews – which, while no one really knows for sure who wrote it, it’s still a significant piece of our Church heritage – and finish the month with the writings of Peter.
 
Thank you, one more time, for joining me as I re-explore this wonderfully challenging stuff!  Take some notes, if you feel like it, and give me a call for some coffee time to kick some stuff around . . .
 
Shalom,

D.P.
