Current Adult Sabbath School Lesson:
The adult Sabbath School lessons are prepared by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, usually by one of the scholars or theologians of the church. These lessons are published in the Adult Sabbath School Bible Study Guide which is published quarterly and provided free to each student. To study on line, click the link in the previous sentence.
This quarter our Study Guide is entitled "How to Interpret Scripture." The Seventh-day Adventist movement accepts the great Protestant principle of Sola Scriptura, Latin for "Scripture alone." The Bible and the Bible only is our rule of faith and practice. Standing in the line of the great Protestant Reformers, we place no value on the traditions of men or the dogmas of popes. Our beliefs must be based on the word of God alone. The apostle Paul wrote that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God" (2 Tim 3:16), and Jesus, quoting Isaiah, said, "in vain do they worship me keeping for doctrines the commandments of men" (Mark 7:7).
However, many other Protestant denominations also claim to believe in the Bible and the Bible only, and yet we notice some significant differences between Adventists and other Protestants on some important doctrines. So it is important not only to believe the Bible but also to be able to interpret it correctly. What can we find in the Bible itself about the proper interpretation of Scripture? Join us this quarter as we seek to discover from Scripture itself the tools and principles that reveal the great truths within the holy word of God.
