From the Teacher
Too often we talk about our feelings, our stories, and our opinions, like those determine how we should feel about God. While we must have faith, we must also have facts. The New Testament narrates factual historical events. If the resurrection of Jesus Christ did not really happen, then Christianity does not exist. These historical facts are why the New Testament is so important. In I Corinthians 9:16, Paul says, “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” We have to know the facts so that we can preach the Gospel. The Gospel is the center of Christianity, so this class is vital to our belief system. We will learn how Jesus and His Gospel changed the world, beginning with the early churches of the New Testament.
