During December we will be linking to four studies about the birth of Jesus.
Each week we will focus on a different part of that important event.
(It didn’t happen the way most people think.)
Part 1: The Call to Bethlehem – God’s promise began to be fulfilled in Bethlehem

Wisdom for the Week:

It’s God’s plan, not irony, that Jesus the Bread of Life (John 6:34)
was born in “Bethlehem” which means “House of Bread”

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies

In the mid 1500’s Geneva became a gathering place for those who wanted to return Christianity to its biblical foundations. Under the leadership of John Calvin scholars, ministers, and concerned students gathered to compare all they believed and practiced with God’s word as preserved in Scripture.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies was founded to continue that practice in our own period of history. Our desire is to apply God’s word to our own lives and to the world around us. Our goal is to reform (reshape) our lives to fit the mold that our Creator has given us in his written word. Read our 2016 Annual Report.
