Biblical Literacy - Advent Lesson 2: Peace
Brent Johnson continued teaching the Advent series with lesson 2. Today is the second Sunday in Advent, Adventus in Latin which means arrival.
After sharing in responsive liturgical reading, Brent expounded on the emphasis of week 2: Peace of God. We are promised God’s peace as the angels’ proclaimed to the shepherds of Jesus’ birth, "Fear not." Brent focused on three points of being pleasing to God:
1. Trust / Faith God - Matt 8:23-27, Romans 8:5-8.
2. Bring Peace to Others - Matthew 5:9, Matthew 28:19-20, Ezra 17:10.
3. Pray - Talk and Listen to God - Philippians 4:6-8.
God is at work in all things. He will give us peace. Listen as Brent details the meaning of the Second Sunday in Advent.
Listen to Mark explore the beginning of the Advent season and God’s purpose for us since the beginning of time.
Biblical Literacy is a class taught on Sunday mornings by W. Mark Lanier in Texas, US. Mark is a top 10 US trial attorney who also holds a B.A. in Biblical Languages from David Lipscomb University. He is both a committed student of Scripture and an excellent communicator of its truths. The Biblical Literacy class began in 2003 with a vision to complete an overview of the entire Bible and his since expanded to include other biblical and scholarly topics. The founding idea was to create a class that provided “core material” that would offer anyone, including a novice, a working familiarity with the Bible.
