In Review - Last week's presentation on "Historic Foundations of the Christian Faith"

Oleg Voskresensky presented on historical evidence for our Christian Faith. Christianity is one of the few religions where we learn about God not only from prophets or documents but also through God himself, namely the incarnation of Jesus Christ.

When we wonder if the Bible is a reliable document, we can compare it to other historic documents and we find some important details. There are a large number of ancient copies of the Bible available for comparison, These copies are early copies of the original text, and the level of error where meaning is lost/changed is as low as .02%. Sunday's presentation was a small part of a larger workshop available on DVD. (Oleg has donated a copy of the DVD to our church library.) Oleg works with FaithSearch International, a nondenominational, evangelistic Christian ministry. He will return in January to present on archeological evidence for the Christian faith.

Do you have an idea or an interest in presenting a topic or leading a discussion for the adult class?
