Lessons From The Puritans
Hebrews 11:8-16 We consider three themes from this text that relate to John Bunyan’s work, ”Pilgrim’s Progress” which we will consider in the evening lecture:
Matthew 11:12 We examine the text upon which Thomas Watson based his work, ”Heaven Taken by Storm”.
Philippians 4:10-13 Paul indicates in our text that he had learned contentment in any situation – whether he was in plenty or in want. We consider two things from this: *What contentment is, and *How we can be content
Matthew 12:17-21 We consider the theme of Richard Sibbes’ ”The Bruised Reed”, seeing Jesus’ humility and meekness in light of Isaiah’s prophecy of how Messiah would deal with the bruised reed and the smoldering wick.
