Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph are given center stage through the majority of the book of Genesis. But why? And why is it Christians are told to regard them as their own spiritual descendants? This survey will help us understand these heroes of the faith who "died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth." (Heb. 11:13, ESV)

How can our Christian lives be enriched by reading other people's mail? Let's find out as we look over the shoulders of Ancient Mediterranean Greeks and Asians as we read letters intended for them but a blessing to us. We will look at the dynamic, powerful messages of an Apostle discipled by the risen Christ and find that there still are applications for us generally thousands of years later. We will endeavor to draw out the flavor of each book whilst summing up redundant material.

Mark's Gospel in the first, the shortest, and the most vivid of the four Gospels. Written in Rome to encourage Gentile Christians during a time of severe persecution, Mark's fast-moving narrative of good news traces Jesus' three-year ministry from His baptism to His death and resurrection. The central theme of Mark's Gospel is "Who is Jesus?"
Who hasn't been hurt by the words of another? Who hasn't regretted something they said? Who hasn't had to referee an argument? Who hasn't wanted to talk seriously with a loved one, yet there seems to be no time? Recognizing that words are powerful, Paul Tripp shows us how the gospel transforms the way we communicate. Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Word, is the only hope for our words.
