Where Can I Find...?

  • Key Chapters of the Bible

    • These are not always the only place in the Bible where these are discussed, but they are a good place to find any story or doctrine mentioned. 

  • Parables of Jesus

    • Since some parables are found in more than one Gospel, and some are not, these are listed first in the order found in Matthew; then those not in Matthew but present in Mark. Finally, those found only in Luke are listed. 

  • Help from God's Word

    • Help in time of need if you need: assurance, comfort, peace, guidance, faith, assistance, information, and understanding.
  • Insight from God's Word

    • These are the doctrines, beliefs, or world views that separate Christians from non-believers and confessional Lutherans from other believers. Some are not directly addressed by Scripture passages, but are addressed by a combination of Scripture and logic.

Key Topics

  • Understanding God's Will

    • To use this section, look for key topics - they will either point you to Bible passages that explain key beliefs (doctrines), or which cover problems in the world or desirable behaviors (virtues) in Christians.
