How We Got the New Testament

Here is why you might be interested in learning more about How We Got the New Testament!



By What Authority: Rethinking Early Church History

Who is in and who is out?
How much diversity can we tolerate?
How do we fund our community?
Isn't it amazing how familiar these questions sound! These were some of the questions that needed to be answered in the first centuries of the church. Since Jesus didn't return as quickly as believers assumed, they had to figure out how to live as believers in their world. They ended up inventing the church. That the church is still alive after all these years is a testament to God’s faithfulness and patience, and gives us courage to wrestle with these and similar questions today.
We invite you to enter this series to see how the drama of the early church’s formation has direct connections to your life of faith today.

Kal W. Rissman, who has worked with addictions his entire career as addiction counselor, nicotine dependency counselor, hospital chaplain and parish pastor.  The series is comprised of 21 sessions of about 18 minutes each on everything from the disease to codependency to intervention and to the role of religion in recovery.  This resource includes a study guide with synopsis of each topic and discussion questions.
