Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. You can reach the undercroft by going around to the back parking lot of the church and descending the staircase to the kitchen. Knock on the door if it is closed and some one will let you in. Our current study is on the Canon of Scripture. The book we are using is F. F. Bruce’s “The Canon of Scripture”. If you do not have a copy we are providing them for free. We are also continuing to provide the Book of Concord for free.
This week we will continue to read through the second chapter The Old Testament: The Law and the Prophets. We will read the section on The Canon of the Old Testament (pg. 28-32), we will discuss different ways to refer to the books of the Old Testament and what the canon of the Old Testament is. We will then read The Evidence of Josephus (pg. 32-34) and discuss what Flavius Josephus though the canon to be. We will also read the Discussions at Jamina (pg. 34-36) regarding an early 1st Century AD Jewish council where the canon was discussed.
As always new people are always welcome to this study at any point during the class. Please talk to the Pastor, Elders or Paul Edmon if you have any questions. Have a blessed Pentecost.
