Welcome to our on-line Bible study, Seeking the God of Israel. As the name implies, our intent is to promote sincere inquiry and discussion around the person and work of the Jewish Messiah, revealed to us in the Hebrew bible as the pathway to seeking and knowing the God of Israel
Why is this important?
The ancient Hebrew prophets have much to say regarding the Messiah - that he would be a prophet like Moses (Deuteronomy 18:17-19), a priest providing atonement (Isaiah 53:4-6), and a king like David (Isaiah 9:6-7). Messiah will restore justice to the world (Isaiah 42:1-5), and provide salvation for all humanity (Isaiah 49:3-6). Surely these prophecies are relevant to all of us!
Our Bible study is divided into five units:
1. God (Who is the God of Israel, and what are his plans for us?)
2. The Bible (What are the Hebrew scriptures, and how are they relevant to us?)
3. Sin and Forgiveness (What is sin, and what does it have to do with us? Are we really in need of divine forgiveness? If so, how?)
4. Messiah (Who is Messiah, what did he come to accomplish, and how is this relevant for us?)
5. Our Response (how do we respond to what God has done on our behalf?)
Most importantly, we know that God desires us to earnestly seek him. Is there something more to this life than what meets the casual eye? Why are we here? Does God really care about us? We invite you to embark on a journey of discovery that very well may change your life!
"And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart"
