The BIBLE STUDY group will hold its discussion on June 14 following the Sunday service by teleconference.  We will complete our focus on Jesus’ healings with studying:

29. Malchus severed ear healed: Luke 22: 47-51 (Luke is the only gospel that         includes healing the ear, others just describe that event as part of Jesus             arrest); Matthew 26: 47-52; Mark 14: 43-47; and John 18: 1-11

30. Jesus resurrection: Matthew 28: 1-10; Mark 16: 1-8; Luke 24: 1-12; and            John 20: 1-18

After this completion of studying the group of 30 healings by Jesus, we will discuss our options of taking a summer break ( which we usually do), or with the unusual situation of staying at home, we might choose to move right into another topic to study. Please be ready with some suggestions of what our next study might be.
