A little while ago, we launched TTS Essentials - a brisk walk through some foundational Biblical truths, aimed at the busy believer who'd find Sunday evenings tricky to attend, or the Foundations course too big a commitment.
I've been really grateful to all those who have made it so far. Last night we looked at the doctrine of the Trinity. It's such a privilege to study these things at length. We've got one more Essentials session scheduled between now and the end of our summer term - we'll be meeting on Wed 3rd July at Freedom Church, from 7.15pm. If you've not been before, we'd love to see you!
So far I've not uploaded any notes for the Essentials sessions, primarily because they offer a modified version of what is taught in the longer Foundations course. However, after being asked about it last night, I've realised that it might actually be helpful to provide the notes here. Find below a copy of everything we've looked at so far!
Many thanks to all those who turned up last night for our second Foundations session! We started a three part series on the Doctrine of God, based on our confession of "One God, the Father, the Almighty".
Who is God? What is the Divine Name, and why is it important? In what way is God different from creation, and why does that even matter? What is the Glory of God, and why do the Biblical authors speak about it so frequently? How can we even relate to such a big, majestic God?
We looked at all these questions and more! You can find notes below, as well as the video clip we played. (The burning bush scene from "Prince of Egypt".)
Hey everyone - here are the notes for last night's Foundations session. We started our examination of our belief "in one God, the Father, the Almighty". In short?
There is a God; you are not him.
God is God - and we are not.
This is otherwise known as the Creator/Creature distinction - the first foundation that must be in place if we're rightly to understand biblical theology.
You can find the notes below!
