As many of you know, this past Spring I finished two years of teaching through the book of Romans in a community Bible study held here on the RTS Charlotte campus.
The Romans study was held every Wednesday morning for women in the Charlotte community. I had the idea for this study a few years ago as I was looking for an opportunity to connect with the people in the city of Charlotte outside the formal classroom setting. A lot of people are too intimidated to take one of the standard seminary classes, but I thought they may be willing to come on campus an participate in “normal” Bible Study.
As for why a women’s study, I simply thought that might work better in terms of building community among the participants. And it seemed to be a hit, because we had 100-120 women attending regularly for two years. It shows there is a real need in our world for the simple, basic teaching of God’s Word.
The 42 installments of this study are now available on a Youtube channel that you can find here. They are all filmed in HD quality and really turned out great. Our director of visual media, Matt McQuade, did a fantastic job.
If you are looking to do Romans in your church or home Bible study, it is my hope that these videos would be a useful tool for you and your group. You may be helped by the outlines for each study which are available on the RTS Charlotte website here.
Next year (Fall, 2017), I plan to start a new women’s Bible study on a new book here at RTS Charlotte. So, keep an eye out for it!
Here’s the 2-minute introductory video to the entire Romans series:
