Before you commence, there are a couple of things you can do which will help you get the fullest value from these lessons. First, and the most important before you commence is pray. Ask for God’s blessing and wisdom as you study the Bible, along with illumination from the Holy Spirit. After all, it was He who inspired men of old to record what we have in both the Old and New Testaments today (2Peter 1:20,21). The Apostle Paul declares that spiritual things are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14), meaning that unless the Holy Spirit brings things to your understanding, your Bible study will be in vain. So please pray, approach the reading of the Bible seriously and God will bless you, as you learn.
We call it the Home Bible Tutor, because it will feel as though Pastor Anderson is visiting your home personally and doing Bible studies with you. The advantage in adopting this approach is Pastor Anderson has a wealth of Biblical knowledge accrued over a thirty year period, and he with his commentary, explanations, Biblical and historical knowledge will bring each Bible study alive in a remarkable way.
If you have any questions relating to the topics you are studying, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will get the information back to you as quickly as possible. Remember to go through the studies in order, please don’t jump ahead, because the studies build upon previous knowledge gleaned from the earlier lessons. Remember, if you are ever in Melbourne please join us on Saturday morning for worship, and stay for lunch, we would love to meet you. Feel free to share this information with your family and friends. Please begin by clicking on lesson one, thankyou.
Yours in the Blessed Hope
