Our official board will meet on Tuesday at 6 PM.
Bible study, Wednesday at 3:30, will continue our study on “How We Got The Bible.”
This Sunday’s sermon will continue our study of the work of the Holy Spirit. He is very active in creating the new birth. I will be discussing how the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and the human will work together to bring about the new birth. Jesus declared that one must be reborn in order to enter the Kingdom of God, so this is clearly a very important topic.
The question came up in Sunday School about the origin of the word “Gentile.” It refers to non-Jews but the term did not originate in Judaism. It was first used in Jerome’s translation of the Bible into Latin (The Vulgate, late 4th Century AD) to refer to non-Jews. It basically means “race” or “clan.”
