Were All Angels Male?

The Bible does not reveal that angels are either male or female in an anatomical sense. Jesus suggests that angels are without such gender in Matthew 22:30 when he says: “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.” If angels do not marry one another, then that seems to imply that they are without gender.

First Corinthians Seven and Eight – To the Married

It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.

The Destructive Consequences of Pride

In this lesson we will study 1 Corinthians 4 and learn that pride causes us to: 1) Be judges over God’s stewards, 2) Go beyond what is written, 3) Serve self instead of God, and 4) Not imitate the spiritual. The listener should learn that pride is a deadly enemy of God’s people and responsible for much division in the church. This lesson is designed to help us learn more about 1 Corinthians 4.

Arrested for Preaching the Resurrection

In this lesson, we will study Acts 4. The apostles were arrested for preaching the resurrection. How did they handle this? We will note: 1) The Situation of the Arrest, 2) The Steadfastness of the Apostles, 3) The Sentence of the Sanhedrim, 4) The Supplication of the Saints. The hearer will be able to understand how the early church dealt with the problem of preaching the gospel in the face of opposition. We want to know how the early church handled problems so that we can imitate their faith.

First Corinthians Chapter One

In this lesson we will look at the three main points of First Corinthians chapter 1: 1) Acknowledgement of Good, 2) Appeal for Unity, and 3) Authority for Action. The hearer should understand that Christ and Him crucified is the standard upon which unity and good works originate today.

To the Blind, He Gives Sight

In this sermon we will examine the statement, “To The Blind He Gives Sight.” He does this because there is, 1) A Need–the blind need to see, 2) A Name–only He has this authority, 3) A Notion–the blind who see will tell others, 4) A Nation–the blind who see will believe and worship together, and 5) A Night–an eternal blindness is coming for those who do not see. I want to impress upon each hearer that God wants all men to be saved and to come to the truth and to help the congregation become more evangelistic.

Life is in the Blood

In this lesson we will learn that the life is in the blood as we compare the functions of blood with the functions of the blood of Christ: Blood 1) replenishes, 2) removes, 3) repairs, and 4) regulates. Each listener should recognize the function of the blood of Christ as it gives life to the body.

Introduction to First Corinthians – God’s Wisdom or Man’s Wisdom?

The book of First Corinthians contrasts the wisdom of men with the wisdom of God on the following topics: 1) Unity vs. Division, 2) Morality vs. Immorality, 3) God’s Glory vs. Idolatry, 4) Orderliness vs. Disorderliness, 5) Resurrection vs. No Resurrection. Each listener should understand that God’s wisdom is greater than man’s wisdom and desire to follow God’s wisdom.

How We Got the Bible – Transmission and Translation

The aim of this lesson is to help all understand that the Bible has been accurately preserved throughout the ages for our benefit and that we have what they had.
