I just thought some of you would find it very interesting that I am teaching a Sunday school class… I have to smile inside.
One of the Messianic Fellowships that we attend with some frequency (currently, we are sharing time between our home fellowship and two other fellowships in the area) is led by a couple that is still involved in ministry in a Baptist church in Lexington, SC. She has led an adult Sunday school class for several years in a study through Genesis and Exodus as well as sharing other basic Torah teaching (feasts, etc). Well, recently, she asked if I would be willing to come do a series for her class revealing Yeshua in the Tanach.
While Sunday is typically a work day on our little homestead, I jumped at the chance. I figured I could teach and be a light in the church while still being home to do work by about 11:30!! How cool!
So, besides sharing my excitement, I thought I could share the first audio from last week. Frankly, the audio is not great, mostly because it was an after thought. We were already 15 minutes underway as I introduced myself and gave some background when the gentleman decided to place a small pocket recorder on the podium. Following is a recording of the last 29 minutes or so of class. This week he had a much nicer recorder with stereo inputs, etc, so we’ll see if the quality came out better.
In my intro, besides giving background information on myself, my goal was to connect with my audience on our shared focus on the Messiah, but also begin to challenge and reveal some errant paradigms about how we look at Scripture. In doing so, I want to begin to create some desire or willingness to ask hard questions and search for truth, no matter where it leads.
As soon as I have today’s audio, I will post it.
Please pray that the seeds already planted and the seeds being planted in and through this class will lead to opened eyes and walks of righteousness. And, pray for me to have wisdom as I teach and proclaim the Messiah’s Torah!
