I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Jesus Wept: The Bible and Human Emotions (1st Quarter Adult Sabbath School 2011)

This quarter's Lesson Study book looks at us as 'emotional beings'-- created to have a range of emotions that make us human.  We also look at the the emotional reactions that our world evoked in Jesus: "Jesus wept" (John 11:35); "...he (Jesus) looked round about them with anger" (Mark 3:5) and other examples of Jesus expressing sorrow, despair, and grief.

This quarter we learn biblical principles about how we can understand our emotions and seek power from God to "bring them under His sovereignty."  We examine how various Biblical characters expressed their emotional reactions to the events in their lives.  There is quite a lot we can learn from their lives that we can apply to our own.

The quarterly is authored by Dr. Julian Melgosa, the dean of the School of Education and Psychology at Walla Walla University.  You can listen it in advance of Sabbath online at Amazing Facts and with the Forrest Lake Church class (through Hope TV).  You can also download the lesson book online.  And NOW it is also available for people who want to use their Kindle to follow along!
Please join us in person-- or in the comfort of your own livingroom with your family-- to pray for the outpouring of the early and latter rain, for revival and reformation. 7 pm, Every Evening, January 5th to 14th, 2011 at the Comox Valley Church, 4660 Headquarters Road.

  1. Very neat and impressive, as I am learning a wee bit about this downloading of things. That is why I have the 3 different blogs and am thankful that He is teaching me to add the things that not only help me, but help others along the way.

    God bless and Have a very Happy Sabbath.
