19 Jun 2019 James (Program #1)

James (Program #1) – Introduction and Practical Virtues of Christian Perfection (1)

One of last books to be added to the canon of the New Testament was the Epistle of James. Throughout the centuries, believers have had very different attitudes towards this book. Some believers treasure it to the uttermost, granting it a status of being among the very top books in the bible. Others, drawing a comparison between James and Proverbs, may feel that it would better fit in the Old Testament. While some have question whether it belongs in the Bible at all. Why would such a book give rise to these varied opinions? The message of the book is very clear and straightforward. The language is lovely even poetic in places. And the author had great creditability because scholars agreed that this was the James that was the Lord Jesus’ flesh brother and he was also the leading elder in the first church, the Church in Jerusalem.  We believe that the life study we begin today will give us a very solid answer to this intriguing question.

Exodus (Program #10) – The Complete View of God’s Call of Moses

God needs man to assist Him in His move.  This is a clear message of the Bible: God needs man.  For this God calls man.  God has called scores of men over the ages including all the great figures of the Bible, such as Abraham and King David and all the New Testament apostles.  But none of these experienced the complete calling that God gave to Moses.  It is this complete calling that God also desires to give to us.  We will focus on the complete view of God’s call to Moses on today’s life study of the Bible.

Witness Lee has said that God’s calling of Moses is the most complete of any calling recorded in Scriptures.  He compares it on a lot of occasions to God’s calling of the apostle Paul in the New Testament.  What makes this picture such a complete one?
