My wife and I had the joy of joining River Oaks Church (PCA)* today, and I have the double joy of teaching a 8-part series on OT and NT canon in adult Sunday school.
I will be posting the handouts, audio recordings, and videos below.
|5/8||What is Scripture, and why does it matter?||MP3||Video|
|5/15||How did the OT come about, and do we have the right OT books?||MP3||Video|
|5/22||How do we know we have the right words of those OT books?||MP3||Video|
|5/29||How did the NT come about?||MP3||—|
|6/5||Do we have the right NT books?||MP3||—|
|6/19||How do we know we have the right words of those NT books?||MP3|
|6/26||Why do we not accept all these other books?||MP3**||Video|
|7/3||Wrap-up and Q&A|
* It is a particular delight to be joining ROC, because the senior pastor, David Camera, discipled me for about a year a decade ago when my wife and I were newly married and members of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL. David was a new associate pastor at Briarwood at the time. It’s a privilege to be coming full circle to sit under his teaching again, now in Florida.
** In the audio of this lesson I made a mistake regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls. The scroll that *possibly* mentions a “killed/slain” Messiah is not 4Q452 but 4Q285.
