Every year we start the year with a focus on God’s Word with a New Year Bible School. The theme for this year was “Why Israel, Why Jersualem, Why End Times?” Willem Glashouwer from Holland was due to be the guest Bible teacher, but due to health reasons he was unable to come at this time. However, in God’s providence Stephen Briggs agreed to take his place. 

This was Stephens third time teaching at the New Year Bible School, the first being in 2015. Stephen gave four sessions a day, covering quite a lot of information. The main thrust of his teaching was on God’s dealing with Israel in the past, present and future. Through the three days he walked us through Scripture showing us that God loves Israel and has committed Himself to fulfill every promise.

We take comfort in the fact that as God is faithful to Israel, He will be faithful to the Church.
