Bible Studies:
We welcome and encourage anyone to attend one (or more) of the Bible Studies we offer.
Bible studies are a great way to strengthen your knowledge of the Bible.  At the same time, you have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in discussions with others who have the same passion for the Bible as you do.
 
Below are the current Bible studies being offered at Beautiful Savior.  Each Bible study is approximately 1 hour long and does not require you to be there every week.  Come as often as it fits your schedule.

October marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Beginning Sept. 10, our Sunday morning Bible study will focus on the Lutheran Hour’s A Man Named Martin-Part 2: The Moment. This study examines the errant teachings and wayward traditions of the Late Medieval Church that eventually sparked the Protestant Reformation, a
theological overhaul set in motion most notably by Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg.
 
Joining forces in examining these teachings and the role Martin Luther had in debating and, ultimately, rejecting them is a cast of scholars, professional church workers and pastors. Here Dr. Paul Maier, Dr. Ken Schurb, Dr. John Nunes, Dr. Joel Lampe, Dr. Susan Mobley, Dr. Joel Biermann, and others, along with The Lutheran Hour Speaker and host Dr. Gregory Seltz, add insight and expertise to this fascinating
period in the life of Martin Luther.
 
False Christs are portrayed, talked about and beloved within North American culture. Like imitation Elvises roaming the streets of Las Vegas, imitation Christs roam in and out of our spiritual conversations, lives and beliefs.
 
These counterfeits may seem like Jesus, but they couldn’t be further from the real deal. There is mascot Jesus, and Jesus, the giver of bling. Maybe you have heard of Jesus, the social justice warrior, or Jesus, the teddy bear. Do you know these false Christs? Do you worship them? You might be surprised at the answers.
 
Join us as we examine Dr. Matt Richard’s book that not only identifies 12 common false Christs found in our culture but also reveals the true Jesus Christ found in the pages of Holy Scripture.
Where is God when terrorists attack or when massive tsunamis sweep away thousands of people? When disasters happen, we sometimes wonder if God really cares. Where does evil come from and how do we overcome its powerful drag on our lives? Though we’ll never have all the answers, Douglas Connelly’s inductive study will help you trust God and his sovereign power even in the darkest days of pain and suffering.
 
Our evening Bible study begins at     6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11.  Our morning Bible study begins at 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. Please sign up in the narthex so there are enough books.  Cost of the book is $7.
