History of the Bible class to be given at 1st Baptist of Greenville

The same history of the Bible class that Pastor Powell has given previously will be held at the First Baptist Church of Greenville, PA on July 17th, 24th, 31st, and concluding on August 7th.  The class will begin at 6:00 PM and go until 7:30.  It is free and open to the public, no registration required.  There will be an opportunity for Q&A each week.

First Baptist of Greenville is located at: 60 Shenango St. Greenville, PA 16125
Their website is: First Baptist of Greenville

The History of the copying, preservation, and translation of the Bible will be given in a four-part class taught by Pastor Randy Powell of First Baptist of Franklin.  This class will include helpful visual aids that will assist in the telling of the amazing history of God’s Word, beginning with the original manuscripts in Hebrew and Greek, and ending with the modern English translations that we read today.  When we understand the history of how an accurate rendering of the original words of the authors of the Bible has been preserved for two millennia, our faith in its trustworthiness will only increase.  The class will include an opportunity for Q&A, is free and open to the public with no reservation required; it will be a benefit both to novices and to those who only need a refresher, including pastors.
