Bible Studies at MDLC
Sunday Bible Study
9:15 am Youth Room of Fellowship Hall
What does it mean to be in fellowship around Word-and-Sacrament? Holy Communion defined a congregation in the first century. How do we live as members of God’s Family....around the Family Meal in in the community? How does that family grow? What is the difference between a Country Club, a Corporation, and a Congregation? How might all this shape you as you live in Christ?
Wednesday Morning Bible Study -
What was it like to live in a first century Christian congregation? How did people become Christians and members in a congregation before most of the New Testament was written? Dr. Howard Jones opens a window to the life and times of the earliest Christians through the pages and paragraphs of The Didaché, a document about the size of Mark’s Gospel) written before the New Testament Gospels and all the writings of John. And how did The Didaché manage to quote Matthew before there was a Matthew? (There is an easy answer to that Question.)
