The Letters of John

Most Christians are probably familiar with John’s Gospel and his Revelation but probably less so with his three letters which come almost at the end of our New Testament. Yet these three short letters have so much with which to instruct and guide us today. Each term we try and run one module that is more devotional as well as teaching, and John’s Letters are our choice for the summer term, so if you would like some online devotional fellowship…

New Testament Overview

Over 10 Monday evenings between Easter and Summer we’ll work our way from Matthew to Revelation – book by book – becoming familiar with the structure and theme of each book, and seeing how it contributes to the storyline of the Bible as a whole.  The class will be held on Monday evenings, between 7 and 9, starting on April 15th, and will be held on zoom, so that wherever you live you will be able to take part. You…

The Sermon on the Mount

Join us on 10 Wednesday mornings, from 9.30-10.30, starting on January 10th, as we explore the most famous sermon ever preached. It is still as relevant and applicable as ever it was and this would be a great Bible study opportunity. Warren Wiersbe says of the sermon Whatever applications the Sermon on the Mount may have to world problems, or to future events, it is certain that this sermon has definite applications for us today. Jesus gave this message to…

Spring Term Schedule

Several folk have been eagerly awaiting details of the virtual classes we will be running in the New Year – well here they are. We have had a great autumn term, but are looking forward to welcoming new and continuing students to the range of subjects we will be teaching in January. In the week of Monday 27th November we will post full details of each of these modules, but in the meantime, for those of you who are very…

Ecclesiology: The Doctrine of the Church

This is a subject that is almost uniquely close to the heart of God and therefore should be close to our hearts as well. Given how important the Church is to God we will not be surprised to discover that he has a great deal to say about the Church in the Scriptures.   The individual believer and the local congregation of believers that wants to grow in Christ-likeness and spiritual maturity will be the believer and congregation that brings themselves…

Pneumatology: The Doctrine of The Holy Spirit

A Christian may not always be conscious of the Holy Spirit’s presence, but he would not even be a Christian in his absence.  JOHN BLANCHARD For many years the person and work of the Holy Spirit was a neglected study, which is why he is sometimes called “The Forgotten God” (Francis Chan).  As a result, the study of the Holy Spirit has become associated with controversy and marred by confusion. Nevertheless, the Christian life is a spiritual life, because the…

Guard the Gospel

2 Timothy is Paul’s last recorded letter, written to his son in the faith just weeks before his own death. It is one of the most straight forward and urgent of the New Testament letters and one of the most relevant for our day and generation. EBC’s Director of Training, Pastor John Brand, will open up this inspirational New Testament letter over 9 Tuesday mornings, between 9.30 and 10.30, starting on Tuesday 18th April. The cost is just £75 (auditing)…

Route 66: Bible Overview

We’re into the New Testament in this year-long series, but you are welcome to join us. We’ll be revisiting the Old Testament in the autumn if you want to cover that at a later date Over 10 Tuesday evenings between Easter and Summer we’ll work our way from Matthew to Revelation – book by book – becoming familiar with the structure and theme of each book, and seeing how it contributes to the storyline of the Bible as a whole. …

Isaiah

There can be little doubt that the book of Isaiah is one of the most theologically rich of any of the Old Testament books. As has often been said, Isaiah gives the fullest revelation about the Messiah in the Old Testament, and in fact it is possible to preach the whole Gospel from Isaiah. But, while certain sections of Isaiah – such as chapter 6 or chapter 53 – are well known and loved, much of Isaiah is largely unfamiliar…

Happy New Year

A very happy and blessed New Year to you and yours from all of us involved in the ministry of EBC. Now that the Christmas decorations are packed way for another year and you’ve made – and possibly broken – your New Year resolutions, there’s one more thing on your ‘to do list’ before life fully returns to some sort of normality – choose which of the new modules at EBC you will follow this Spring.  With what we have on…

Leviticus – Hebrews

Join us in a study of these two immensely significant books over 10 Tuesday mornings, between 11.00am and 1.00pm, starting on 10th January 2023. The course will be held on zoom, so that wherever you live you will be able to take part. You can simply audit the course and benefit from the teaching and fellowship, or complete an assignment with a view to gaining some study credits. Full study notes and recordings are included in the price, which is…

The Doctrine of God

Who is God?  Who is this One who reveals himself in Scripture, in the person of Jesus Christ and through the Holy Spirit? James M Boice There is no doubt but that 99% of our troubles as Christians is that we are ignorant of God.  We spend so much time feeling our own pulse, taking our own spiritual temperature, considering our moods, our states, and fears.   Oh, if we had but had some conception of Him, the inconceivable glory of…

Romans

Over 9 Wednesday afternoons in the Spring, EBC’s Director of Training, Pastor John Brand, will be guiding students through the monumentally important Letter to the Romans. Frederick Godet, the 19th century Swiss Protestant Theologian said of Romans The Reformation was certainly the work of the Epistle to the Romans and that of the Galatians, and it is probable that every great spiritual renovation in the Church will always be linked, both in cause and effect, to a deeper knowledge of…

Spring 2023 Classes

Over the next few days we will be posting details of the new classes we will be running in the Spring. All our classes are open to ANYONE and because they are all held on zoom, you can join from ANYWHERE in the world. Two of the classes are also held in-person at our base in Broxburn, West Lothian.

Have you signed up yet for one of our new modules? Route 66 (Bible Overview) started last evening but you could still enrol in time for next week’s class and not have missed too much. We had a keen group of students online, signing in from as far apart as Aberdeen and Belfast, and that’s possible because all our courses are held over zoom. All our other courses – see below – start next week and we are still accepting…

Route 66: Bible Overview

There’s still time to join others who have already signed up for our new evening class series which starts at 7.00pm on Monday 26th September. Over 30 Monday evenings between now and next summer we’ll work our way through the whole Bible – book by book – becoming familiar with the structure and theme of each book of the Bible, and seeing how it contributes to the storyline of the Bible as a whole. ANYONE is more than welcome to…

Evening Classes on Zoom

Two weeks today our new autumn series of evening classes on zoom starts and we hope you are going to join us. Over the next nine months, week by week and book by book we will travel Route 66, working our way right through the Bible, studying each individual book as well as setting it in its wider biblical context. This would be a great way to get a good handle on your Bible in a way you may never…

Introduction to New Testament Greek

If you are serious about studying the Bible in any depth and reading commentaries, we believe you really should get at least the basics of the New Testament Greek alphabet and the way the language works. If you are a teacher or preacher, it is essential to have at least a reading knowledge of the language, so that you can follow the text even if you need to look at a translation or dictionary from time to time. This will…
