Second Timothy 3:16 provides a great statement on the importance of the Scriptures. Using the Apostles' Creed as a guide, Ron examines the important, non-negotiable doctrines of the Christian faith. These are the doctrines that countless men and women have lived for--and many have died for--over the centuries.
The Bible we hold in our hands today didn't just appear, whole and complete, at a singular point in history. Instead, the Bible represents the writings of 40 different authors working over a span of 1,500 years. As Ron Moore takes us through the history of the Bible, we'll see that despite having numerous human authors, one clear voice--God's voice--can plainly be heard on every page of His inspired Word.
Is the Bible more than just a good literary work? Is it the work of man, or is it the Word of God? How can I trust this book when the last entry was written nearly 2,000 years ago? These are all important questions to search out answers to. Ron Moore takes us through these questions and shows how men and women today can have confidence that the Bible they read today is truly the Word of God.
The Bible says the Lord would speak to Moses face-to-face, as a man speaks with a friend. Wow--wouldn't we all like to experience that? Then perhaps you'll be surprised to find you don't have to be a biblical hero to have a meaningful friendship with God. Ron Moore explains four practical steps we can take toward having a meaningful and life-changing relationship with our heavenly Father.
There's a lot more to the last two commandments given to Moses than just "don't lie" and "don't covet." Whether it's flattery, hypocrisy, gossip, greed, or envy, Bible Teacher Ron Moore points out that at the end of the day, we need to trust God to transform our hearts into what He desires.
Out of all the Ten Commandments, the commands to not murder, not commit adultery, and not steal are the easiest, right? Wrong. Ron Moore explains that while these commands may seem simple, there are many ways we can break these commands in our hearts, or in ways that no one can physically see. Ultimately we'll be reminded that, like David, God honors a broken and contrite heart.
Keeping the Sabbath holy and honoring our father and mother are commands given to the Israelites on Mount Sinai, but these commands also have deep meaning for Christians today. Ron Moore points out that for New Testament Christians, Jesus is our Sabbath rest, and honoring our parents means we learn to respect all those who are in positions of authority.
The Ten Commandments are more than a list of dos and don'ts posted on the courtroom walls. They are the basis of the laws of civilized communities, and they are the basis of how we follow God. Bible Teacher Ron Moore explains the background for the law in the Old and New Testaments and then delves into the first three of the commandments given to Moses on Mount Sinai.
It's so easy to look back at the grumbling Israelites in the desert and say, "What a bunch of whiners!" But as Ron Moore explains, the tough times in our lives can easily entice us to have the same rebellious attitude. We'll be reminded that God is the ultimate provider and we must decide every day to follow Him with fresh faith.
Many of us have seen depictions of God's miraculous rescue of Israel on the shores of the Red Sea. But other than being a memorable story, how does the parting of the Red Sea impact our lives today? Ron Moore draws some remarkable similarities to what the Israelites experienced and what we endure today, reminding us that while God may not take the shortest or easiest route, He never leaves us.
