Pastor Bill's Thursday Bible Study Course

Thursday Bible Study 8-4

August 4, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree • Luke 15

We continue our dynamic and engaging Bible Study on Luke. We arrive at three central parables that open up St. Luke's particular concern to help us see the inclusive reach of the Gospel. We also have an in-depth discussion on what actually faith is and whether we have "free will" or not. Don't miss it!

Thursday Bible Study 7-7

We explore the many "sayings of Jesus" in the 11th and 12th chapter of Luke. Did you know where you put your treasure will determine what your heart loves? Check this study out!

Thursday Bible Study 6-23

June 23, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree • Luke 10

An in depth look at the wonderful Martha Mary story - how it helps us in our walk and discipleship. We also spend a good deal of time reflecting on what Jesus' affirmation of Mary means for women today and their roles in the church. We finish by taking a deep dive into the LP in Luke!

Thursday Bible Study 6-16

June 16, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree • Luke 10:25

We cover all aspects of "the Good Samaritan" parable, perhaps the most famous of Jesus' parables. We take an exciting look into not only "who" our neighbor is but also "how" we live out love of neighbor in the world. Finally, we ponder how this parable also preaches the Gospel to all of us - are we not the one injured and beaten up on the road?

Thursday Bible Study

June 9, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree

We delve into the details of Jesus' commissioning of the 72 to go out and heal and proclaim "the Kingdom has come near." We focus on Jesus' "high Christological" statement that "Whoever hears you (the 72) hears me, and whoever receives me, receives the Father."

Thursday Bible Study 5-12

May 12, 2022 • Pastor Mike Greenwalt • Luke 9:23–27

Thursday Morning Study, May 12, Luke 9:23-27: In our study this week Jesus teaches His disciples and us about the cost of following Him. In our nation today, where we are privileged to enjoy both the freedoms to practice our faith as we choose and the freedom from having a religion imposed on us, we don’t often consider the cost of discipleship. This week our text leads us to asking, “Where are the risks in being a disciple of Jesus today?” Plan to join us this week either in-person in the fellowship hall or live via zoom!

Thursday Bible Study 4-7

April 7, 2022 • Pastor Mike Greenwalt

Thursday Bible Study

May 5, 2022 • Pastor Mike Greenwalt • Luke 9:7–9, Luke 18—22

Thursday Morning Study, May 05, Luke 9:7-9, 18-22: In our study of Luke this week we are drawn into the timeless question of “Who is this Jesus?” We will hear both the questioning of Herod and the question Jesus asks of his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” As we gather in study we will have the opportunity to share our own answers to this question so central to our lives.

Thursday Bible Study 3-31

March 31, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree • Luke

Thursday Bible Study 3-17

March 17, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree

This week we encounter a woman who was forgiven by Jesus and set free to the amazement of those around him, including the disciples. This story helps us understand the depth of forgiveness and its radical impact on those who receive this gift! The following week, there will not be Bible Study as PB is away in NY visiting his daughter.

Thursday Bible Study 3-10 (Recorded)

March 10, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree • Luke 7

We continue in chapter seven - Jesus raises the son of a widow and makes clear who John was and is about. We also converse about the offense may have taken to Christianity and Jesus.

Thursday Bible Study 3-3 (Recorded)

March 3, 2022 • Pastor Bill Crabtree • Luke

We finish the "Sermon on the Plain" and also delve into the amazing story of Jesus and the Centurion - this man is one of the few people Jesus says had great faith. We spend most of our time however wrestling with Jesus' sermon and how it functions in our lives. We look at it as law with the two functions of law on full display: (1) A guide (2) Exposes our need for the cross.
