2017 Session 4: Renew Your Confidence

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally explores a few reasons for our confidence in the Bible. “We’ve just walked through the portal of a new age for biblical discovery. Over the next few years, micro-computed tomography will greatly expand our library of ancient biblical material. As we read texts that are more than 2,500 years old, we will be increasingly amazed to see how the Bible we have today has not substantially changed from texts dating back two millennia or more.”

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.”

2014 Session 19: Hebrew or Aramaic?

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally takes up the debate about the language spoken by Jesus: Hebrew or Aramaic? As simple as the question might seem, it’s part of an ongoing historical controversy since the late 1800s, a question that was energetically revived with the Pope’s recent visit to Israel. Is there any scholarship supporting the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew? There is.

2014 Session 13 :  Roman Resurrection   

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally considers the resurrection message that figures so prominently in the book of Romans. Christ is validated by His rising from the dead: “He is who He said He was.”  Returning again and again to this theme, Paul underscores the single event that distinguishes Christ’s earthly ministry. As we considered Paul’s emphasis, we engaged a discussion of the archeology surrounding Christ’s burial. While the Church of the Holy Sepulcher satisfies all the historical/biblical references, the Garden Tomb (Gordon’s Calvary) captures the pastoral setting of Christ’s burial chamber. While there’s a great debate with respect to which site is the actual place where Jesus was buried. Dr. Nunnally made the point that if you could cut and paste the Garden Tomb into the Church of the Holy Sepulcher — you’d have the best of both worlds. “The most important point in either case is, both tombs are empty.
