The Bible Is Messianic Literature | Brian Sorgenfrei
Scripture Reference: John 5:37-47, Luke 24:25-27
If we are to correctly understand any work of literature, we need to know its intended message. The Bible has a central focus to its message that is key to its understanding. That message is bound up in the person and work of Jesus. The Bible Is Messianic Literature!
The Bible is Meditation Literature | Brian Sorgenfrei
Scripture Reference: Psalm 1
We love headlines, sound bites, and summaries! However, the Bible is not designed for quick consumption, but instead is designed for repetitious reading over a lifetime. It takes work, but the result is worth it. This week: The Bible is Meditation Literature.

The Bible is a Reliable Document of Antiquity | Les Newsom
Scripture Reference: 2 Thessalonians 3:17
The average "person on the street" doesn't have a fair knowledge of the vast amount of scholarship that has bee spent on establishing an undeniable fact: that the Bible is the most reliable document of antiquity existing today. "Why," is our topic in this sermon.
The Bible is a Transforming Power | Les Newsom
Sermon Reference: 2 Timothy 3:14-17, Hebrews 4:12-13
Perhaps the reason why we are disinterested in the Bible is because we don't fully apprehend what the Bible claims to be. The truth is: if you are committed to the status quo in your life, then by all means don't dive into the transforming power that is the Scripture.

The Bible is Wisdom Literature | Les Newsom
Scripture Reference: Deuteronomy 4:5-6
More times than not, we want to read the Bible like an answer book, looking for a technique that always produces a good result. But the Bible is wisdom literature. It teaches us to be wise, only as we immerse ourselves in its story and truth.

The Bible is Divine & Human | Les Newsom
Scripture Reference: 2 Peter 1:16-21
So is the Bible a book created by God or by the hands of sinful men? While we often say the correct answer, "Both!" oftentimes we fail to realize how differently that conviction leads us to look at the world around us and how we picture a Christian's mission in the world.
