Covenants of the Bible Class
This is a nine-week class covering the concept of Covenant, and the specific Covenants given by God to His people in the Bible. This course will look at God’s Covenants from a Hebraic perspective, as opposed to a traditional Christian viewpoint. We will discover how these covenants build on each other, each opening another aspect to God’s Covenant plan for mankind.
This series is dedicated to our friends, Jeremy and Ellen. While on a mission trip to Thailand, it was Jeremy who first told me that I had a teaching gift. It has been his encouraging voice in my head over the years as I developed my teaching skills. As an added bonus, he also loves coffee! You can visit his coffee house at Spearhead Coffee in Paso Robles, CA.
