WORKSHOPS

WORKSHOP 1

Grandchildren Are A Gift From God

In Genesis 48 Joseph brings Manasseh and Ephraim to their grandfather Jacob to receive God’s blessings for their lives. God had promised Jacob his offspring would receive land as their inheritance (Genesis 28:13-15). God decides who our grandchildren are as shown in Jacob adopting Joseph’s two sons who were born in Egypt as his own. There was an action required on behalf of Joseph and Jacob in order to fulfill God’s word.

WORKSHOP 4

Mutual Rewards

After four hundred years of silence a despised Jewish tax collector for Rome would write the gospel of Matthew. Mathew explains Jesus Christ the Messiah is the sacrificial Son of Abraham, and the legitimate descendent of David, fulfilling the Abrahamic and Davidic covenants. Matthew 1-4 provides the opening narrative, chapters 5-25 contain Jesus five discourses (Sermon on Mount 5-7, calling & commissioning the first leaders, kingdom parables, teaching on kingdom relationships, olivet discourse) and chapters 26-28 close the gospel and provide the climax.

Grandparenting For Faith With Wisdom and Boundaries

1 & 2 Chronicles were the last books written in Hebrew scripture. These books provide an historical summary of God’s chosen people, the Israelites. Moses, Joshua, Saul, David and Solomon have reigned are are now resting with their forefathers. The kingdom has been divided after Solomon’s death and the author is recounting the good and bad kings in the southern and northern kingdom.
