Bible School

Bible School - photo by Tony AllenIf you are wanting to deepen your understanding of the bible then The St Giles Bible School provides an opportunity for anyone with an interest in expanding their Bible knowledge to study books of the bible in some depth.

The St Giles Bible School provides an opportunity for anyone with an interest in expanding their Bible knowledge by studing the bible in some depth and considering the different viewpoints held by biblical scholars .

The Bible School started in 2017 when we ran three courses covering the books of Job, Revelation and the first eleven chapters of Paul's letter to the Romans.  These were followed in 2018 by The Gospel of Mark, a short Basic Theology course and the Book of Isaiah and then by the book of Hebres in 2019.

These were recorded and will be available online over the next few months as editing is completed.  Currently The book fo Hebrews, The Gospel of Mark, The Book of Isaiah and the first two sessions of Job and the first two sessions of Romans are available to watch online.

2019 Course

This series is called "Hebrews Plus" because, in addition to our main study we are also adding a bible study workshop in week 1 and providing a biblical overview on mission in week 6.

In the middle four weeks we will be studying the book of Hebrews.  Hebrews is a special and unique book that helps us grasp the relationship betwen the Old and New Testaments and yet is all about Jesus!

There are lessons that Hebrews can teach us today about a church experiencing opposition but also faced with oppotunities and the challenge for Christians to develop a resilient faith that perseverse to the end.
