Apr 8, 15, 22, 29 & May 13, 20

Misused Terms of the Bible: Salvation, Righteousness, and Beyond is an ONGROUND ONLY Term 4 Session 1 (7:00–8:15pm) course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) starting 4/08/2019.

Course Description:
There is no time like the present to clear up the confusion once and for all about misused terms of the Bible. Are you ready to see that being "saved" does not mean to get right with God and go to heaven? Did you know that the "righteous" and the "wicked" are not who we have come to think they are, for these Hebrew terms have no English counterparts for a cultural reality foreign to the West. Are you sure you know what someone does when they "worship" in the Bible? And, what did God do when "the LORD visited Sarah" in Gen 21:1? Come learn the truth about misused terms of the Bible!
