God’s Ruler: The Straight Line of Truth How did God reveal Himself? How did the Bible—Old Testament and New Testament—get formed? And why are some books not in the Bible? Why are there many translations of the Bible? The upcoming adult Sunday School class, taught by Pastor Kevin in the Fellowship Hall, will examine these questions and explore the Canon.
