Can we trust the New Testament? Can we trust the Bible at all?
These are critical questions when it comes to our faith in Jesus Christ, especially in a day and age where skepticism is on the rise. One of the primary reasons for offering these Saturday Seminaries are to equip believers with tools to help strengthen your faith and confidence when it comes to being a disciple who makes disciples.
Ryan Lytton (MA from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) will be guiding the conversation to help us understand the history and validity of God’s Word. The Seminary will be held on Saturday May 25 from 9-11:30am at our Northstar office in Dublin. Light snacks and drinks will be served. (If you need babysitting, please email Saera no later than Sunday May 19.)
Here are a few questions Ryan will be addressing specifically:
- Can we trust that we have the right books in the New Testament?
- What about all those other books?
- What about the Gnostic gospels?
- If we have the right books, how can we know that we have the right words of those books?
- Do we have the original wording?
- Can we have the original wording?
- Can we know if any of the events in the New Testament occurred?
- Is it historically reliable at all?
This opportunity is open to anyone, so feel free to invite others to come along with you for our next Saturday Seminary. If you have any questions in the meantime, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
