Book of Malachi
Join Church of the Incarnation Dec. 1-2 for it's Bible Institute conference that includes solid Biblical exposition along with traditional liturgical offerings. The December session will focus on the Book of Malachi which is an often ignored and overlooked minor prophet in scripture and is only four chapters long. It is the last book of the Old Testament, and after this prophetic revelation, followed 400 years of silence. During this silence, Israel waited patiently for the coming of its Messiah. Far from being minor, Malachi sets up the entire New Testament by preparing us for the Incarnation of the Messiah, the first coming of Christ.
Today, we too live in times of "silence" awaiting the second coming of our Lord. Malachi speaks to us today, as much as it spoke to Israel as it awaited the coming of its Messiah. What can the Book of Malachi teach us as we prepare for Advent, and the return of Jesus Christ?
Speakers are Bishop George Sumner and Dr. Timothy Ralston, Dallas Theological Seminary.
Cost is $50. Sign up here.
