    Old Testament Laws That Speak To Us Today

    Old Testament Laws That Speak To Us Today

    Mark continues with A Trial Lawyer's Brief on Biblical Law: A Reflection of God’s Character with Chapter 7, Old Testament Laws That Speak To Us Today. In this lesson Mark discusses some of the known Laws people ask about in daily life, i.e., foods that should not be eaten, wearing clothing with mixed fibers. These Laws were written particularly for Israel because God made Israel distinct from other nations. Mark looks at the unique features of ancient Israel, “holiness” as it is key to the Laws, and then how God’s character and concerns apply to us.

    The Ten Commandments - Part 6

    Mark continues with A Trial Lawyer's Brief on Biblical Law: A Reflection of God’s Character with Chapter 6, The Atonement and the Meaning of Christmas. As Mark has been teaching about the Law, in this lesson he discusses "Atonement", an especially important word when we look at the Laws of Israel. Only Israel's Laws had Atonement because Atonement is about getting back in a right relationship with God. Christmas is the celebration of Christ's birth setting the way for the ultimate Atonement for Israel and all humanity. Join us Sundays at 9:30am CST!

    The Ten Commandments - Part 5

    The Ten Commandments - Part 5

    Mark continues with A Trial Lawyer's Brief on Biblical Law: A Reflection of God’s Character with the seventh commandment: You shall not steal (Exodus 20:15). The word steal in Hebrew is "ganav", which means to steal or take by stealth, wrongfully or in trickery. Mark looks at this commandment from three perspectives; 1) face value, 2) how it is a reflection of God, the law giver, 3) how does it apply to me. How does it change the way I live? God says you are not to ganav because you are made in my image - you are to reflect me to the world. God does not take wrongfully, he gives rightfully.

    The Ten Commandments - Part 4

    Mark continues with A Trial Lawyer's Brief on Biblical Law: A Reflection of God’s Character with a focus on the fifth and sixth of the Ten Commandments. Mark dives deep into the fifth Commandment: Honor your Father and your Mother (Ex. 20:12), and the sixth Commandment: You shall not murder (Ex. 20:13). Mark looks at the kaved, or weightiness, of the commandments as a direct reflection of the Law Giver.

    The Ten Commandments - Part 2

    The Ten Commandments - Part 2

    Mark continues with A Trial Lawyer's Brief on Biblical Law: A Reflection of God’s Character with a focus on the third of the Ten Commandments. Mark looks in depth at the third commandment "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain", and the question, "what's in a name?". Mark shows throughout scripture how the word "name", translated from the Hebrew word "shem", is often used as a label or identifier reflecting a person's life experiences, skill set, references or reputation, such as 'where you've been' or 'what you've done' – leading us back to “..shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain…” and the most mis-understood of the Ten Commandments.

Wonderful lessons on Biblical history and Scriptures

There are years(!) of very well prepared, interesting, and educational lessons here for anyone wanting to learn more about the Bible, Biblical history and its context in world history, the depth of scripture relating to it's Hebrew or Greek context, archeological findings and even reviews of different views of various subjects in scripture. Mostly taught by Mark Lanier, a trial lawyer, I really appreciate hearing scripture and Biblical lessons that have been taught in a way that brings up the questions and issues the world has about God's word, but in a respectful and educational way. Way to go & thank you for blessing my husband and I with these great lessons!
