2015 Session 15: Unconditional Acceptance

During this time of year, we share our Sunday School teacher with various seminar and tour schedules, so it’s a great day when Dr. Nunnally returns to class. He comes, in spite of jet lag and the fog that comes with international travel. The nice thing about it, he usually comes home with news about recent archeological discoveries in Israel. This week is no exception. His friend, Eli Shukron, has recently discovered what appears to be ancient ruins dating back to the time of Melchizedek … approximately 2000 BC. During his time in Israel, Wave had the opportunity to meditate on our discussions about God’s covenant with His people. “The Messiah is here and He’s going to restore His blessings to His people … but the covenant comes with blessing and curse, for those who reject Him. We must represent Him, unconditionally.”

2015 Session 14: The Suffering Servant

In today’s session, Dr. Steve Pulis focused on how God uses suffering to deepen our understanding, and that there’s a difference between suffering and pain … they aren’t the same. The God who utilizes suffering as an element of judgement, also using suffering to effect recovery.  “Perhaps one of the most haunting scripture in the New testament reveals an unexpected revelation of Christ: Though he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered (Hebrews 5:8).

2015 Session 12: Raised and Coming Back

Today’s study focused primarily on scripture and the legacy of the Easter promise. Running through a list of scriptural references, we take a renewed look at what the cross and resurrection mean in terms of our eternal reward. “We are saved through Christ’s resurrected life. His resurrection holds the promise of our eternal life.” As the conversation comes to a conclusion, Dr. Nunnally takes up the special role played in the early church by James-the-Just, the half brother of Christ. It’s interesting that James was absent from the Lord’s earthly ministry until after the Lord’s resurrection. His radical change, from unengaged family member to a significant leader in early Christianity is “an internal proof of the resurrection, and the impact it had on even the Lord’s earthly family.”
