    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 10:1-32. This passage is an expansion of those passing comments that we saw last week about Shem, Ham, and Japheth: “From these the whole world was populated.” Here we have this long catalog of the nations descended from Noah’s sons.
  • DUNCAN/The Ark of Salvation and the Covenant with Noah
    Wednesday, March 21, 2018 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 6:9-22. Genesis 6-9 is an expanded lesson teaching us that this is a moral universe. We live in a day of great apathy toward wickedness and moral failure, but this passage reminds us that God does not shrug with apathy about wickedness. I want to look at this passage with you because it gives us a picture of both God's judgment and His grace

  • DUNCAN/Seven Miles with Jesus

If you’ll remember verses 1-12, when the angels encountered the women who had come to the tomb to complete the preparation of Jesus’ body, the angels said to them, “Remember what He said,” and we talked about how Luke was emphasizing the centrality of the words of Christ for His disciples. It's central to their faith. Well, in the passage we're going to study this time, Jesus elaborates on that very point.
  • DUNCAN/Perplexed. Frightened. Incredulous. Marveling!
    Wednesday, October 18, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:1-12. This passage is about the battle of faith. Are we going to trust God's Word, or are we going to succumb to unbelief? Jesus Himself does not appear to anyone in the story that Luke has recorded here. This is significant because Luke is pointing our attention to something else that is faith producing, and that is the Word of God, the words of Christ.
