WHO: All ages (No advance registration required)
TIME: 10:30 AM–12:00 PM
WHERE: Oak Hill Bible Church, Austin, Texas
Join Pastor Armstrong in our next verse-by-verse study as we march through scripture one book at a time. His next study in through Paul's letter to Ephesus called Ephesians.
Ephesians is the "go-to" book in the New Testament for an understanding of God's sovereignty in salvation by grace, and therefore it shares much in common with Paul's other masterwork: Romans.
Paul wrote this letter while enduring his first Roman imprisonment in house arrest. As Roman guards stood watch, Paul penned a powerful letter to forestall an apostasy, a falling away, in a large church in a leading city of a powerful empire, a city renown for its wealth and fleshly indulgence.
Life in Ephesus was similar to life in major Western cities today. Many of the same temptations to depart the faith are tugging at the hearts of 21st-century believers as they were for the 1st-century believers in Ephesus, which makes this letter imperative to understand now. Pastor Steve will dissect the letter's powerful theology and practical advice for the Christian family in his usual in-depth, verse-by-verse approach.
This study is presented weekly from the pulpit as part of the Oak Hill Bible Church Sunday services, held at 10:30 A.M. every Sunday morning. The church is located in the Oak Hill area of southwest Austin, Texas. No advance registration is required, and free childcare is available. Past lessons will be posted on our Ephesians Bible Study page.
NOTE: This study will NOT meet on Sunday, February 26, 2017. It will resume on March 5th.
