Joanne Holstein has just placed her New Testament children’s lesson online. It is entitled “Jesus Curses the Fig Tree With No Fruit“:
This miracle occurred four days before the crucifixion of Jesus. When Jesus came across a fig tree that had leaves and no fruit He withered the tree. This miracle was used by Jesus to teach us about being fruitful for the LORD and prayer and faith to know the prayer will be answered. (Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 11:12-25)
Joanne has placed her newest New Testament study online that is entitled “Bernice great granddaughter to Herod the Great”
The behavior and conduct of Bernice was scandalous so deviant the citizens of Rome could not accept. Bernice was wealthy and probably beautiful and suffered from the wantonness of power. Bernice is not a good example of how women should conduct themselves; yet we can still learn what is expected of Women of Christ by her behavior and conduct. (Acts 25:13-14, 23; Acts 26:30-32)
Joanne Holstein has just added her new women’s lesson online; it is entitled “Basemath, Wife of Esau“ Understanding Esau gives us an insight to his wife Basemath. Basemath and her marriage to Esau gave us a precaution about being unequally yoked between believers and nonbelievers. Esau, like Jacob, was warned not to take a wife from a daughter of Canaan because there are no covenants with the Canaanites or unbelievers. (Genesis 26:6-9,34-36; 28: 6-9; 36:2-4, 10-13; Genesis 36:1-4, 10-13)
Joanne Holstein has just placed her women’s study online entitled “Problems facing the Colossian Church we face Today”
It is our responsibility as women of Christ to be able to identify the pit falls in our generation. This is so we may help those put in our trust to make their struggles easier or maybe even to avoid the dangers all together.
A new children’s study, written by Joanne Holstein, entitled “Jesus Heals Ten Lepers” has been placed online. It speaks of the amazing healing power of Jesus that shows his love for us. The healing power of Jesus is amazing. It shows His love for us. Jesus tells us often it is our faith that has made us well. We should always give praise to the LORD for His loving kindness. (Luke 17:11-19)
Kathy L. McFarland has just completed her study entitled “A Biblical Analysis of Søren Kierkegaard’s Later Theodicy Justification for an Unchangeable and Silent God” which can be read on on her Becker Bible Teacher Resources site.
Joanne Holstein has just placed her children’s Old Testament lesson “Elijah Revives the Widow’s Son” online for your study. The lesson of Elijah and the widow’s son helps us to better understand that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Upon the reviving of her son the widow knew that Elijah was a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in his mouth is truth. 1 Kings 17:17–24
Kathy L. McFarland announced today that the searchable Biblical Hebrew Database has been completed, and is ready for use! The database is searchable by Strong’s numbering system, Hebrew word with full markings, Transliteration, Definition, and Index. The unique characteristic of this database is that it searches for partial parts of the word or definition. It is fast and it is correct! It does nothing fancy and sticks to the purpose it was created to give Bible Teachers a fast and reliable way to translate the Old Testament original words confidently.
Joanne Holstein has just placed her newest children’s lesson online, entitled “Jesus Healing a Woman With an 18 Year Infirmity” Jesus was teaching in a synagogue on the Sabbath. A woman appeared with a spirit of infirmity eighteen years and was bent over and could not stand up straight. Because of this healing we know that Jesus, the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day. (Luke 13:10-17)
Joanne Holstein’s newest women’s study, What does it take to change? We have focused a good deal with the question of if the Philippians slave girl had changed once Paul commanded the spirit of divination from her. What does it take to change is the question I am asking. It is not a miraculous “poof” and the change happens and a life is on a better track. There has to be a desire and a dedication for change to occur. (Philippians 3:20-21)
