Randy Smith, Bible teacher and pastor of Grace Church, a Grace Brethren church in Sebring, Fla., who regularly leads groups to Israel, has designed a trip especially for pastors. He is inviting members of the Association of Grace Brethren Ministers along.
Leaving New York on February 14, 2017, and returning February 22, 2017, it is more than a tour – it is a traveling classroom for people in ministry.
The journey will be with an open Bible, learning to present the text more clearly by understanding the geography and culture behind the setting of the Bible stories. The seminar is designed to “fill your toolbox to the brim” with sermon materials that will help you expose the Word’s truths more effectively and share the story of Jesus more clearly. Each day will address common questions frequently encountered in teaching God’s Word to others.
After this travel-study seminar, you should be able to:
- Explain the Gospel accounts in their simplest order.
- Identify the particular need filled by each Gospel.
- Recognize and separate the major elements of each Gospel account.
- Discuss the basic manuscript evidence for each of the four Gospels.
- Preach Gospel texts with greater clarity and confidence.
