BIBLICAL APOLOGETICS

Here are details of another of our new virtual classrooms which are running this autumn and which are open to anyone.  (You can find more information about our virtual classrooms here.) We live in a world where doubt is heroic and faith is moronic.  That’s why we need apologetics, which helps us in two ways: (1) personal edification and (2) persuasive evangelism.  It is common for Christians to be disturbed by things they find in the Bible and doubts that they…

These six hours will give you a bigger Bible…  (Rev Dr Sandy Roger) Do you know your Jeremiah from your Jeroboam; your Elisha from your Elijah? Do you know when the Exodus was, or the Exile? Where were Jerusalem, Jericho and Joppa? Who were Habakkuk and Hezekiah? Did you know that Adam and Noah were alive at the same time or what was the last letter Paul wrote?  For many – perhaps most – Christians, vast sections of the Bible are either ‘no go’ or at least ‘not gone’ areas. They are strangers to much of God’s exciting and important revelation to us. The Bible…

Virtual Classrooms @ EBC

Having to move all our classes online last term because of the current pandemic has opened up for us new possibilities for making our teaching available to even more people. We trialled a few virtual classrooms in the summer term and, based on the very positive experience and feedback, we are going to continue to use this vehicle for ‘equipping God’s people for God’s purposes’. When our new session starts at the end of September, several of our modules will…

Patterns of Evidence: Exodus

Caroline and I spent a couple of hours recently watching this stunning and compelling documentary and highly recommend it. Tim Mahoney, an independent film maker and producer, sets out to examine why, by and large, archaeologists, scientists and even religious leaders are convinced that the Exodus, as recorded in Scripture, didn’t happen; alleging that there is simply no evidence for it. Mahoney examines the biblical detail and, using a scientific approach to consider the evidence, discovers that the evidence is…

Perhaps, as you read their stories, you could see…
