Galatians

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.) The letter to the Galatians has been referred to as the “Magna Carta of Christian liberty”. It addresses the issue of false gospels, specifically, the heretical claim by the “Judaizers” that works of the Law, such as circumcision, are essential for Gentiles (non-Jewish people) before they can receive salvation as…

Scottish Church History

Today, we are posting details about the first of five virtual classrooms we are running this autumn. You can find more information about our virtual classrooms here. “The Faith of the Gospel on Fire” is a great way of describing how the Reformation transformed Scotland.

They are strangers to much of God’s exciting and important revelation to us. The Bible…

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…
