Bible Study

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:8)

Myrtle Baptist Church Bible Study offers a place to connect with other believers in fellowship; to grow in our understanding of the Bible, as Jesus’ own small group of disciples did; to meet the needs of others in your group in ministry; to become equipped for evangelism; and to worship God through practicing godly behavior. Bible Study meets every Wednesday night at 7:30pm.

Mother, Maiden, and Mogul: Three Perspectives of Femininity in Samson

Lecture concerning the three main female characters in the biblical story of Samson (Judges 13-16) given at Harvard’s Hebrew Bible Workshop on November 5, 2012. This lecture was inspired by my own research on Samson in the making of a graphic novel “Samson: Blessed Savior of Israel.” – Minister Justin Reed

Bible Study: Spiritual Philanthropy

This Bible Study explores the idea of “Spiritual Philanthropy” (the 2013 focus for Myrtle Baptist Church) through a close reading of Matthew 20:20-28 and Genesis 15. Please enjoy, forgive any mistakes, share the video with others, share suggestions with me, and most importantly-challenge yourself to make real life changes based on what you learn.
