In contrast to the interests of American evangelicals, this Bible study does not even begin with the end times. It begins with the personal end that each person faces—death. Lutherans have traditionally started their study of the second coming of Christ, His final judgment, and heaven and hell with the topic of death because until Christ returns, that’s how we will enter the end times. This represents a different approach from most Christian teaching. Instead of waiting for the coming reign of Christ, Lutherans focus on living in Christ now through the Holy Spirit’s work.
The preaching of salvation through Jesus “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). Saint Luke continues the story of Jesus’ work in and through the apostles and other disciples. The Book of Acts records the Church in mission to reach the ends of the earth with the promise of forgiveness and everlasting life in Christ—a mission that continues today.

Weekly Ending On
The world has its way of squeezing us into its own mold. People around us hold to all kinds of “myths” concerning God, eternity, humanity, and reality. People have all kinds of misconceptions concerning those things that were revealed to us in Scripture. Make no mistake, the myths held by the world around us are out to influence us. Therefore it is important for us to distinguish between fact and fiction, myth and faith. Join us for this examination into Christian teachings.
Marionettes tell Matthew's Easter story. Jesus tells His friends what He must endure to save us all. He is betrayed and handed over to his enemies. He is tortured and killed. His bewildered friends are trying to understand what it all means and then His tomb is found empty on Easter Morning.
All of Christianity hinges on what happened during seven days in history. Have you ever wonder why the authorities needed Judas to identify Jesus? Or, how could the people who cheered Jesus on Palm Sunday call for his death just a few days later? Or, why was Pontius Pilate trying so hard to avoid sending Jesus to his death? And is there evidence-outside the Bible--that these events actually happened? This study examines the Week that Changed the World provides a deeper understanding of the most important week in history.
The Book of Daniel is much more than a combination of miraculous stories and fantastic visions; it presents the Gospel of the promised Messiah and his eternal kingdom. However, interpreting Daniel is no easy task. This class will open up Scripture for us to explore themes relevant for today.
