Feasting on the Word – Adult Bible Study rotating leaders
Sundays at 9:30 a.m. on Zoom (ongoing)
For each lectionary text, participants will find brief essays and discussions concerning the biblical texts. One review states,” A very helpful resource for those who use the lectionary in their weekly church services. I love that each passage is broken into theological perspective, pastoral perspective, exegetical perspective and homiletical perspectives. Having each perspective side by side discussing the passage for the week is very helpful.
