1 Peter (2015)

1 Peter (2015)

January 2015 - August 2018

Note: Classes in this series are arranged with the most recent class appearing first.

This epistle focuses on the critical doctrine of how we face adversity and how we are to think about it in our lives. The key word is the word for suffering and its many synonyms. The purpose is to remind all believers that God has a destiny and a future inheritance for them. What we think of as speed bumps interfering with our personal plans are actually God’s training tools and are to be expected, rejoiced in, and not dreaded.

Video DVDs of these lessons can be ordered here and here.
