Paul’s Letter to the Romans
Romans is considered the greatest exposition of Christian doctrine anywhere in Scripture. It is filled with great themes of redemption, the guilt of humankind and his inability to earn favor with God, the redeeming death of Christ, and the free gift of salvation to be received by faith alone. The overall theme demonstrates God’s righteousness. By His grace and power we are enabled to live a pattern of life consistent with God’s own nature.

Professor Judith Hawkins, J.D. Minor Prophets with Major Messages for then and now.

The twelve books ending the Old Testament are referred to as the Minor Prophets. Written between the 8th and 4th centuries BC, is a collection of short prophetic books written by Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. Their messages have a dual focus, speaking both to the Jewish people of old and to Christ’s followers in the last days of Earth’s history. Some of the most familiar passages of Scripture were written by these minor prophets with major messages; for example, He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8

Holy Land Trip Preparation
There is no substitute for seeing Bible places first-hand to make Scripture even more meaningful. The Holy Land has been called the Fifth Gospel.

It is intended to serve two purposes. It is meant to help you prepare for a trip you might make or already have planned. Secondly, if you have not already arranged to take such an adventure, it is hoped that this presentation will motivate you to plan such a life-changing trip as soon as you can.
