Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Critical Issues for Understanding the Old Testament Text

Challenges to the veracity of the text of the Hebrew Bible have often been the starting point for doubts about the Bible and the beginnings of apostasy. These are vital issues often approached in summary in Old Testament Introduction courses.

At this year’s Chafer Conference, we have three ­experienced and well-qualified experts to address some of these challenging questions. For pastors this will be a rich time of building upon previous studies to look at the transmission of the Old Testament, the value of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and ancient translations for validating and illuminating the text of the Hebrew Bible.

On top of that, we will have the wonderful opportunity to dig into challenging questions about the transmission and preservation of the Scripture especially applied to some of the discrepancies ­between the Septuagint and the Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and other textual problems. These questions are significant for developing an accurate understanding of the chronology of the Old Testament.

For the enthusiastic Bible student, you will also gain an understanding of not only important background issues, but as these issues are referenced by your pastors at your home church, you will have gained a solid framework for understanding what is being taught.

Each evening we will also have the opportunity to focus on three important Scriptural passages as our Keynote speaker, Pastor and Missionary Jim Myers, takes us through God’s Word. Three passages of significance will be exegeted and explained for us in a way that will deepen our understanding of these passages, but also challenge us with their implications for our own spiritual growth.
