CUC Newsletter – February 18, 2022

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

How the English Bible Came to Be

Dean Tucker will be leading CUC for the last 2 weeks in February, continuing his series . He is a member of the BYKOTA Sunday School class and was a professor at Oglethorpe.

The title of his lesson will be “How the English Bible Came to Be.” In this lesson he will be exploring such topics as:

  • Christian beliefs about the creation of the Bible.
  • The case for the Bible as the inspired Word of God
  • In what language(s) was the Bible originally written?
  • When was the Bible written?
  • Who wrote the Bible?
  • Why was the Bible written?
  • How was the Bible written and preserved throughout the early stages?
  • How was it determined what to include or exclude in the Bible?
  • How were the books of the Bible named and ordered?
  • The bloody, violent and murderous path to our present day English Bible
  • How and why are there so many translations and versions of the Bible?

The three lessons will be built upon the following words of Scripture:

Mark 13:31, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21,1 Thessalonians 2:13

CUC Sunday School Class

We continue to have class both in the classroom and on Zoom. It is good to be together again face to face, but we still have Zoom for those of CUC who prefer to stay at home or who are away from home!

Those attending class via Zoom should be signed into Zoom and admitted no later than 9:40 AM to prevent feedback noise. Thanks for everyone’s cooperation on this!
