Assignment One. THE BIBLE
(Bring completed assignment to our meeting after worship on November 19)
Get your hands on a Bible – suggest a NRSV (New Revised Standard Version) as that's the one we use in our worship services.
Read: 2 Timothy, Chapter 3, verses 16-17. (If you are not sure where that book is, use the contents section somewhere near the beginning of the Bible.)
Then list at least 4 ways that these verses say Scripture is useful.
Take a look at 2 Tim 3:15. The writer (the apostle Paul) speaks about “the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”
What are these sacred writings?
What is the purpose of them?
What does he mean by “salvation” and “faith in Jesus Christ”?
