The family unit was instituted by God during the primeval days of Adam and Eve. The household in ancient times would have consisted of not just immediate members but relatives, servants, and even friends, depending on economic resources. Familial imagery is also employed in Scripture to describe those who are the people of the one, true God. They are all assumed to share in the life of the local church - from worship to witness to discipline. Yet, serious confusion abounds regarding this aspect of God's salvation. For this reason, the March 2007 edition of Tabletalk is concerned with the family of the Lord, and it will serve to exhort Christians to understand their place in the kingdom as children of the living God.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Greg Baiiley, Iain Duguid, Ken Jones, Wynn Kenyon, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Gene Edward Veith. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies.
Since Genesis has such a prominent place in history, the 2007 Bible studies continue from 2006 with Part 2 of this book.
