Matthew 11-12 Oct 2019
"The visit of the Magi, the Sermon on the Mount, the Great Commission: these are only a few of the well-known passages in Matthew's Gospel. Yet it begins with a list of unknown names and apparently irrelevant 'begettings'. The early church may have placed Matthew first in the New Testament because it provides a Christian perspective on the relation between the church and the Jews, an issue that is still important today."
-- An introduction to Matthew's commentary by R. T. France
Come join us as we spend 2-days digging through the book of Matthew at Word Works 2019, together with like-minded Christians from all over Malaysia.
Renowned theologian/preacher, D.A Carson has this to say in his book 'Exegetical Fallacies' - "We are finite and limited in our understanding. Worse, we're sinful, and we sometimes make mistakes to justify our own biases. We sometimes read the Bible to answer our own questions. We all come with a matrix of presuppositions, so it's relatively easy to misinterpret Scripture."
Word Works is designed and catered specifically for those who want to learn, teach, preach, study, exegete and basically read the Bible correctly and well, and not misinterpret Scripture. We encourage you to continue making the effort to be equipped to read the Bible faithfully, in order to minister to the saints and grow God's people (Eph 4:11-12).
