The Resurrection and Christ In You

April 7, 2014

The Cincinnati East, Ohio, congregation of the United Church of God is continuing its bi-weekly Bible study Wednesday night, April 9. The study continues at the time of 7 p.m. EDT and is available live via webcast.

Darris McNeely, a presenter on Beyond Today television, will be continuing this six-part series in preparation for the Passover with the topic, “The Resurrection: Christ In You.”

In Part 6 of Six Steps to Passover Mr. McNeely will show the resurrection of Jesus Christ is central to the faith and life of a Christian. The apostle Paul tells us “if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is futile and your faith is empty…and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:14-17). After three days and three nights in the grave Christ was resurrected on the third day of Unleavened Bread. As we examine ourselves and “keep the feast” let us be sure that Christ is in us. This study will help you prepare to effectively “keep the feast.”

Live Webcast: Six Steps to Passover—The Suffering Servant

March 24, 2014

The Cincinnati East, Ohio, congregation of the United Church of God is continuing its bi-weekly Bible study Wednesday night, March 26. The study continues at the time of 7 p.m. EDT and is available live via webcast.

Steve Myers, a presenter on Beyond Today television and UCG pastor in Cincinnati, will be continuing this six-part series in preparation for the Passover with the topic, “The Suffering Servant: Footwashing.”

In Part 5 of Six Steps to Passover Mr. Myers will show an important aspect of observing the New Testament Passover is washing each other’s feet. Jesus said “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” Introducing footwashing into Passover observance was something new. Why did Jesus institute this portion of the evening? What does Bible show? This study will look at footwashing from a different point of view as we consider three observations and examine three lessons.
