Many today experience great difficulty in grasping the real roots of their faith. Few understand the relationship of various sections of the Scriptures such as the Torah, the Writings, the Prophets and the Messianic Gospels. There is little understanding among believers as to our role with God’s ancient people, Israel. The doctrines set forth by the institutional church leave much to be desired and in many cases are patently unscriptural.
How can we overcome these problems? Jesus said,
Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures, or the power of God? (Mark 12:24, NASB)
Only by a systematic and comprehensive study of all Scriptures can we be confident of our understanding of what God is doing. Such understanding coupled with a Spirit-filled walk in the Lord enables the believer to become truly fruitful.
The objective of this course of study is to assist the Spirit-filled believer in attaining a comprehensive and practical knowledge of the Scriptures. In doing so the student is prepared to become a living sacrifice to God. The student that has completed this course of study should be able to teach confidently from any portion of the Scriptures, to develop lesson plans on any Biblical topic, to develop an individual system of Biblical teaching and, in general, relate the wealth of knowledge, wisdom and revelation found in the Scriptures to specific counseling situations.
One final objective of this study is to help believers relate properly to Israel. We live in a very significant era when God has regathered His people into His land. For the first time in centuries the Jewish people have conquered their land, Eretz Israel, and their city, Jerusalem.
Most church doctrines essentially eliminate Israel from an active involvement in God’s plan because they were formulated at a time when Israel was dispersed and Jerusalem was under Gentile control. Since this is no longer true, we must consider the Scriptures in the light of the reality of our day. As we do so, we begin to understand the perfect and beautiful relationship of Believers in Messiah Jesus to the Jewish people and we become available to God in hastening His work through them.
