Purpose of our Bible Studies:

  1. To build a foundation of God's knowledge thought the Word of God and ably them in our daily Christian life.
  2. To create a habit of scrutinize the Scriptures and connect the Old covenant (OT) and the New Covenant (NT).
  3. To guide you on how to analyze the Scripture so you can develop the ability to find out the correct meaning.
  4. Don't believe anything that we or someone is teaching unless it can be proven in the Bible.
  

Come and discover the foundation of the Scripture

Ready to add color to your beliefs? It does not matter what denomination you belong too. Come and join us in a weekly Bible study. Our intention: to connect the old testament with the new one. How do we do that? We will connect the first five books of the Bible, with the writings of the prophets and finally the new testament.

It will blow up your mind!

   

Connecting the entire Scripture. Let's look at the foundation of our beliefs. The Pentateuch is the five sacred books of the Jewish and Christian bibles. This Pentateuch is also known as the Torah. It is composed by Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. These five books are the foundation of faith in our Messiah, Jesus. Several concepts from our religions are associated with the gospel such as God, wisdom, righteousness, sacrifice, faith, rituals like baptism (yes, baptism), and communion comes from the Torah.

During ancient times, Jews were reading the Torah portion at the synagogues on a weekly basis (Acts 15:21). This tradition is still alive. The Torah portion is known in Hebrew as "Parashah"€ and it is divided into 54 readings throughout the year. Each week the reading portion has a title. The title comes from the first sentence of that week'€™s reading. As mentioned before, we will connect the Pentateuch, with the writing of the prophets and the gospel. This will help us understand the foundation of our Father, the consequence of not following the instructions; Jesus, the verb of our infrastructure and ultimately, how we apply these concepts in our daily life. May the Lord bless you with his words.

This week portion: Vayera “And He Appeared”

Readings: Genesis 18:1 – 22:24 (Torah), 2 Kings 4:1-37 (Prophets), Lk. 2:1–38 (Gospel)

This week portion, we learn two great spiritual concepts: stewardship and faith. The Torah says that the Lord appeared to Abraham (Genesis 18:1). Sitting at the entrance of Abraham’s Tent, he noticed three men (angels) standing nearby. The second verse Abraham teaches us a great stewardship lesson as he ran to meet them. He welcomed, offered respect, shelter, hospitality, and food. The book of Hebrews teaches us to demonstrate hospitality to strangers. Just like Abraham did three men who passed nearby, we should invite people to our house, congregation, show them kindness, serve them and show them the love of God as it might be God himself.

“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!” Hebrews 13:2

Faith

Sarah will have a son  (Genesis 18:10).

Wow.. How can we believe in something humanly impossible? Sarah laugh and with this action, she validates disbelief. Who can blame her? She was beyond her childbearing years. The Hebrew says “She laughed within herself” which implies a private laugh. The Lord can hear thoughts of our inner being, our hearts. Despite her disbelieve, God gave her the hope and the assurance that there is nothing impossible for Him.

 

Abraham supplicates for Sodom (Genesis 18:23)

Abraham bargained and implored for mercy on behalf of Sodom, but what drove him to do that? Is it because of his nephew or compassion? Sodom was a wicked city and God intended to punish sin, and Abraham was motivated to intercede for it because his nephew (Lot) was leaving there. He knew that one way or the other the city must be punished, but he also knew how merciful God was with the sinners.

This verses sounded very familiar in my personal life. My son has consecutively received bad grades at school, and after we try multiple actions, next step is to implement discipline. We decided to take away some privileges. My son calls grandma, and she calls daddy saying “hey, you know that your son is a good kid. Maybe you're too strict.”

My mom was appealing for mercy. But the issue is that she does not see the whole picture. Please follow me in this analogy of this story and the bible. As parents, we gave him the instruction (= Torah) of what to do to improve his grade, several opportunities (= grace), and brought him a tutor ( = prophet) to teach him. The problem was that he prefers to focus on other things. Next step: teach him a lesson of the action and consequences when he makes the wrong choices.

God shows how merciful He was allowing Abraham to intercede and also by letting his nephew get out of Sodom before it was destroyed.
