Sunday school

Adult Sunday School Class (Fellowship and Scripture Study)

The adult Sunday school class, led by John Luttrell, uses quarterly’s out of the NIV Bible in order to study scripture and then help relate that to our daily lives.

 

In the previous week, July 2nd, we studied Scripture from the Book of Zechariah.  Zechariah addresses the time period nearest the close of the Old Testament witness. In other words, the prophet Zechariah offers a pivotal voice in the biblical narrative as we move from Old Testament promise to New Testament fulfillment in Jesus Christ.
 
Moreover, the subject matter of our day’s scripture lesson builds a bridge between the Old Testament promise of a King and the fulfillment of that promise in Jesus. All four gospels allude to the opening verse of our passage, with two of the gospels, Matthew and John, directly quoting it. The occasion in the gospels is the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. In other words, the New Testament Church saw a connection between this important event in the life and mission of Jesus and the message of the prophet who could foresee something like this happening.
