I  am in the process of doing a major update to this blog. (Goodness knows it has needed it for a long time!) This will be a long drawn out process as I have been writing and teaching, pretty much full time, for more a couple of years now and have a ton of new content to add to the blog. I have updated the following pages:

The Gospel of Matthew audio study

1st and 2nd Thessalonians and the Man Behind the Letter

The Current Bible Studies page

The “Our Blessed Hope” studies page

And the “Whole Book Studies” page

There’s a whole lot more to do. I have Youtube videos to add and several audio studies links to add, but this is a start. If you check any of these out and have a problem with any of the links, please let me know as I did not test every single one.

 

I will try to start posting every time I upload a study to either Youtube or SoundCloud, that way you can stay updated. Please feel free to comment or to reply to the e-mail notices. I appreciate your prayers and support, too.

 

I just yesterday uploaded these two audio lessons. I will try to post the previous lessons that go with these in the next week or so.

This audio came from our Sunday morning series as we work our way through the Gospel of Matthew. This will be similar to the longer version of the Matthew study, except these are designed to be approximately 30 minutes in length. We are currently in the Sermon on the Mount, and expect to be there until Advent this year.

Love Your Enemies

 

This audio is from our East Knox Women’s Bible Study group. We are working our way through the Gospel of John (verse-by-verse, and sometimes word-by-word!) Here are all three of our lessons (since we just started a few weeks ago.) You can read about this group on the The Current Bible Studies page

The Gospel of John Introduction Fall 2019

Lesson One – Overview

Lesson Two РThe Prologue 

Lesson Three – “Witnesses”

 

I hope you enjoy these, and they are beneficial to you.

Our list of audio and video Bible studies continues to grow. To check out what studies are available, please look on our blog to the right under “Pages”. If there is a particular study that you are interested in, please contact me and we’ll see what we can do about making that one available. Thank you, and may God bless you in your time of study!

Things happened in my teaching ministry in 2017 that, previously, were only dreams – and wild dreams at that! If anyone had told me this time last year that I would be teaching Bible studies on cable tv, I would have said, “Yeah, right…” and added a huge “eyeroll”! But, here I am – with a program that airs several times a week on iHopetv. (Comcast channel 241 Knoxville, TN viewing area. Sunday nights 9:00 pm and Monday mornings 5:30 am to list a couple.) But it was God Who did that.

Now, God has laid another “yeah right” desire on my heart for 2018. Will you pray with me, and for me, that, first of all, God will be praised and glorified in all that I say and do – and that His will, will be done in this teaching ministry – touching those whom He would have touched.

E. Stanley Jones said, “Prayer is not bending God to my will, but it is a bringing of my will into conformity with God’s will, so that His will may be done in and through me.”

As a friend of mine posted on Facebook recently – “Let’s set goals that cannot be reached without Divine intervention!” And this one surely is!

If you’d like to know more about it, or would like to support this teaching ministry – please e-mail me for more details. May God bless you in your service to Him this year!

My Facebook post this morning:

In addition to our current Ladies’ Bible study from Matthew, I’ve also been working on putting together another series for “Hand to the Plow” (recorded at Ark Studio, Inc and currently airing Sunday nights on Comcast channel 241 iHope TV in the Knoxville, TN viewing area). This next series was to be “Running the Race with Faith” taken from Hebrews 11-13…

However, this morning God laid a “hankering” on my heart to teach through the book of Amos… I think that will take around 10-12 episodes. I have money that has been donated for about 6 lessons already. If any of this teaching has helped or encouraged you, please consider making a donation. No amount is too small – it all adds up.

You can send a check to
Betty J. Newman
P. O. Box 6675
Knoxville, TN 37914
or if you want to make a tax deductable donation, make it to
Ark Studio, Inc.
P.O. Box 6095
Knoxville, TN 37914

I promise you that every penny will go to this project. And please, feel free to message me or e-mail for more information or comments.

A dear friend called me yesterday morning and said, “I just wanted you to know, in light of your new ministry announcement, I am praying extra hard for you. I know when we start something new, or are serving God, the enemy’s attacks become stronger. I’m praying for a hedge of protection around you and your family…”

Wow! I SO appreciated that phone call! I hadn’t really thought about it much, but she’s right. Sometimes the “attacks” are huge and debilitating, but more often, they are small annoyances which derail us or cause us to lose focus. So, with that, I would like to ask you to pray for me, my family and this new ministry. May God be glorified in it, and may through it many develop the desire to know God’s Word and to deepen their walk with Him.

We are entering the peak of the “mowing, gardening and canning” season here on the farm. Even though we love it and long to be good stewards of the farm – it is always a hard and busy time. Please pray for our physical strength; that we may get the work done and be able to sleep well and rest as needed.

When I ask you to pray for me – it’s not that there is some specific need or struggle – it’s just an on-going need to be uplifted in His strength and His patience. I appreciate so much the outpouring of encouraging words and support for this new ministry. It has been amazing.

Thank you for your love. Thank you for sharing the news, and thank you most of all for your prayers!
