An In-depth Bible Study on the Lord's Prayer
Fascinating insights into the 'Our Father' prayer, including commentary on the prayer in the context of Matthew's Gospel (aimed at the Jewish Christians in Antioch, who were probably quite rich) and context of Luke's Gospel (with a baise to the poor and dispossessed). Both scriptures are used as starting points for group bible study and thought-provoking questions. Discover why the writer considers that we now enjoy an adult relationship with God, rather than considering ourselves 'Children of God' (the writing of St Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:11 is used as evidence to show that we now experience adult-parent relationship with God). Based on the book, 'Praying the Lord’s Prayer: An Ageless Prayer For Today' by Herman C. Waetjen.
