Nehemiah Chapters 1 & 2 (download comments)
Speaker: Bro. Len Naglieri

Exh: "Husbands & Wives"
Speaker: Bro. Lee Smith
"Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord... Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the ecclesia." (Eph 5:22,25)

Nehemiah Chapter 3 (download comments)
Speaker: Bro. Adam Hurst

Lecture: "The Only True God"
Speaker: Bro. Andrew Garvey
Notes: The nature of God. "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent" (John 17:3). Without knowledge of the nature of God we cannot enter into God's family. What is the nature of God? Who is He and what is His purpose? There is one God, by whom all things have been made. The Holy Spirit is not a separate living entity, but the supernatural power of the Deity set apart (from the free spirit) for a particular purpose. Jesus is not God, as the Bible makes a clear and careful distinction between Jesus and God: "There is One God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (1 Timothy 2:5).

Lecture: "It Shall Stand Forever"
Available for download: Handout (.docx) and PowerPoint (.pptx)
Speaker: Bro. Dave Humphreys
Notes: The nature of God's kingdom. "And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever" (Daniel 2:44). A divine political dominion, that will be established on Earth. All secular governments will be destroyed in order to bring the world into subjection to God. This Kingdom will be the restored ancient Kingdom of Israel; the Jews will be gathered from their present dispersion among the nations; Jerusalem will be the capital; Jesus will be the supreme ruler; the saints will inherit the Kingdom.

Lecture: "The Gospel Truth"
Speaker: Bro. Jim Rankin
Notes: God's message. "God preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed" (Gal 3:8). The one hope offered by God for salvation is based on His one true gospel. The gospel is specific and particular good news that must be understood. It particularly involves the things concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ. It cannot be believed before it is understood. This lecture could summarize the previous lectures.
