Fig Tree Five
The 'Father's House' serves as a poignant cultural metaphor, shedding light on the Scriptural principle of redemption.
In this metaphorical realm, God the Father possesses a household, and each one of us is an integral member of that divine family. But what unfolds when we find ourselves estranged, metaphorically 'outside' of the Father's House?
In a profound act of divine love and grace, the Father commissions His eldest Son—the Redeemer—to embark on a mission to reconcile us back to the familial fold.
This salvific journey by the Redeemer illuminates the depths of God's desire to restore us to a place of belonging and unity within His household.

Bible 101 (pt. 2)
The generations following Adam and Eve became wicked, violent, and murderous. God's heart was grieved, and, in His wisdom, He decided to "start over" through Noah and his family.
Noah's story is a "de-creation" followed by "re-creation" and a new beginning for humanity. After the flood, God makes a covenant with humanity through Noah as the covenant mediator.
His promise to humanity is that He will not destroy the earth again with a flood, and as a sign of the covenant, God sets his "bow" in the clouds.
In today's lesson, we will explore the ancient context of the Hebrew word for "bow" and the implications for how we understand this remarkable covenant with humanity.
