This 11-part series is foundational for anyone wanting to understand his or her Bible correctly.  Each video is roughly 30 minutes in length and its host, S. Craig MacDonald, is an excellent teacher with a kind and gentle spirit.  Do you wrestle with how to approach the Bible or are there parts of the Bible that, if you’re honest, don’t make sense to you?  Were the Levitical Laws written for us today?  Do we need to keep all of the Law today?  Do we keep part of the Law?  What is grace and has it always been the predominate factor in God’s dealings with mankind over the centuries?  Was Paul one of the 12 apostles and why is he the only apostle to label himself as “the apostle of the Gentiles”?  These and many other questions are answered within this series.  We can’t recommend it enough!

Lesson 1 of this 11-part series.  This is an excellent video series that cuts through all the false teachings that are out there in Christendom and plainly explains the correct way to understanding what it is your Bible says.  Lesson 1 focuses upon hermeneutics – the art and science of interpreting Scripture.

Lesson 2 is focused upon “Oikonomia”.  Understanding the meaning of oikonomia is especially important to everything that follows.  

Lesson 3 is focused upon identifying dispensations within the Bible.  Is a dispensation a period of time or is it something else?  Ephesians 3:1-13 provides us God’s own description of His dealings with mankind through history.

Lesson 4 nails down the start of the Church, the body of Christ.  The word “church” is a technicaly term that is used today very differently from its first century usage.

Lesson 5 focuses upon answering the all important question, “what must I do to be saved?”  The goal of this 11-part series is a better understanding of the Bible, but an even greater result would be that God would use this series to bring someone to salvation.

Lesson 6 looks to the future and discusses the Millennial Kingdom and the Messiah to come.

Lesson 7 focuses upon subjects that the apostle Paul did not want us to be ignorant about.  Will there literally be a “Rapture” of the Church (the harpazo or “snatching away”)?  What is your view concerning the Tribulation Period and your attitude towards those who will enter it?

Lesson 8 focuses upon how signs and wonders (miracles) relate to dispensations.  Many who profess to be Christians believe that miracles and speaking in tongues are an important part of church life.  What does the Bible have to say about these subjects?

Lesson 9 focuses upon the subject of baptism and how it relates to the body of Christ.  Does baptism mean water?  How does baptism relate to Jewish rituals?  

Lesson 10 focuses upon the fact that Scripture can be confusing if one does not rightly divide.  The most confusing section of Scripture will be the transitionary period known as the book of Acts.  

Lesson 11 brings this series to a close and it focuses upon Dispensationalism as a system of approach to interpreting the Bible.  It also touches upon just what within Scripture is actually written to the Church, the body of Christ.
