Open Bible Courses
Objective: to help people to come to a better understanding of God and his Truth.
Individual tutoring and group classes available.
We believe that God intends for the Bible to be understood by anyone who takes the time to study it. Our approach to Bible teaching is simply reading verse by verse and inviting the student to examine and consider what is being said, how it fits in the context, and finally, what it means and how to apply what we discover.

New Testament Canon

This course looks at the actual historical documentation from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd centuries to understand the processes which brought about our New Testament. The New Testament portion of the Christian Bible contains 27 different books, or letters written by 10 different authors, each from different backgrounds. Why does it contain only 27 documents, and why these 27 documents. Out of the hundreds of documents written during the 1st and 2nd Centuries, why only these 27? And, why were 7 of them at one time disputed, but eventually included? The Bible itself cannot be used to answer these questions, because the authors themselves never indicated a specific list of exclusive books to be included as a complete set. Was it a single 'council', or organization that determined the final set? The historical evidence shows otherwise. (11 sessions)

The Resurrection

The resurrection of Jesus Christ. Did it occur as an actual historical event or was it an invented story made up by certain individuals over the course of time? Jesus' resurrection is the very cornerstone of Christianity. This course looks at all the empirical data and documented events surrounding this most amazing story ever told. Historical records of both Jesus followers and others considered enemies of the movement from the 1st and 2nd centuries are reviewed and discussed. (13 sessions)

The Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God - what is it and where is it? In this course we will be looking at Old Testament prophecy, and New Testament writings as it relates to the establishment of God's Kingdom. Comparing historical documents as far back as the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th centuries through modern times, will give you a clear understanding how and why, what is called the 'Christian Church', evolved over time to what it is today. This is an amazing story of facts normally not taught in schools or churches. (5 sessions)

Creation vs Evolution

Creation or Evolution - its one or the other. In the market place of ideas and institutions of learning, we are told by the priests of evolution that it is no longer a theory, but rather evolution a fact. The first question that comes to mind is, which version of evolution is a fact? Macro or Micro Evolution. The second question one should ask is which scientists believe which 'theory'? There are several theories being bandied about in the scientific communities, which don't agree on the details of Macro Evolution. This course looks at the available science and facts relating to this subject. We ask a lot of questions, search for answers and have open discussion.
