Bible Study Series >> What is the Gospel?
The Good News from the Beginning
This Bible study series, written by Pastor Chadd Hafer, corresponds with our Sunday sermons on August 2, 2009. Overview: After Jesus' resurrection, he spoke with two of his followers "and beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself” (Luke24:27).

The Good News in Exodus
This Bible study corresponds with our Sunday sermons from August 9, 2009.

The Good News of God's Kingdom
This Bible study on 2 Samuel 7 corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 16-08-09. Overview: Like people throughout human history, Israel adopted a variety of different methods of government as they developed into a nation. But why, during Biblical times, did they settle on being a kingdom? And why did Jesus use the language of 'Kingdom' to proclaim his good news?
The Good News in the Psalms
The Bible study on Psalm 22 corresponds with our Sunday sermons from 23/08/2009. Overview: The book of Psalms is like a collection of 150 prayers, expressed through music to fit the mood of their various circumstances, and finally fulfilled by Christ on behalf of all humanity. Psalm 22 is a clear example of this description of the Psalms.
The Good News in the Prophets
This Bible study on Isaiah 6 corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 30 August, 2009: Overview:
1 Peter 1:10 - 12 reveals that not only did the prophets speak into the circumstances of their times, but God's Spirit also spoke through them about the coming of Christ.
The Good News According To Dr Luke
This Bible study, based on Luke 24, corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 6 September, 2009. Overview: At the beginning of his gospel Luke states his aim to write an orderly and reliable account of the promises that God fulfilled through Jesus Christ. So what does this fulfilment mean to us?
Fulfilment is a central theme in Luke’s message of good news.
The Good News of the Holy Spirit
This Bible study on Act 2 corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 13 September, 2009. Overview: From the moment that God poured out the Holy Spirit upon his disciples (like a mighty storm from heaven) miraculous things began to happen, and the new born Christian Church quickly grew and spread like wild fire across the planet. Who is the Holy Spirit and what should we expect him to be doing in our lives, church, and world today?
The Good News in Paul's Letter to Roman Christians
This Bible study on Romans 3 corresponds with our Sunday sermons from 20 September, 2009. Overview: In the opening arguments of Paul's letter to Christians in Rome he presents the bad news before the good news. The bad news is that all have sinned and are under God’s judgement. But the good news is that in Christ God's salvation has now be revealed.
The Good News in Revelation
This Bible study of Revelation 7:9 - 17 corresponds with our Sunday sermons on 27-09-09. Overview: Many organisations have vision statements. But Revelation can truly be called ‘The Vision of visions’ because it contains God's final vision for all humanity.
