The Five Failures of Abraham – Christ Church Oak Brook

I have begun a series of Bible studies for The Greenhouse group that meets at the Christ Church of Oak Brook, Illinois. This series of studies is based on the life of Abraham. The title of the series is The Five Failures of Abraham.

Before COVID, the 700 members of The Greenhouse met in person for the Bible study. Following the presentation, the group had a time of questions and answers in which the members of the group would respond to the presentation.

Because of COVID, the Bible study is taped, and the members of the group watch the video without having an opportunity to ask questions or dialogue with the person presenting the Bible study.

As a seminary professor, I always welcomed questions from my students. Asking questions is one of the best ways of learning from the Bible. Since the people watching the videos on the failures of Abraham will not have an opportunity to ask me questions, I want to give members of the group an opportunity to ask their questions.

At the bottom of this post there is a place to leave a comment. If after watching the video, you have a question about what you saw and heard, please, ask your question and I will answer any and all questions asked during this series of studies.
