About the Quarter

The focus of this quarter is the “Sovereignty of God.” The sovereign nature of God is seen through the visionary images of the authors of Isaiah, Hebrews, and Revelation. The quarter begins with a study of Isaiah’s rich images of God as the one who rules the whole universe. In the Letter to the Hebrews, we see how God comes to lead human­kind in the person of Jesus. The Revelation of John offers the vision of God as the beginning and end of all things.

Unit 1, “Sovereignty of God,” has four sessions exploring how the prophet Isaiah views the reign of God over the whole world as a peaceful kingdom, a mountain of God, the foundations of the earth, and in a new and ever­lasting covenant.

Unit 2, “Sovereignty of Jesus,” studies the images of the reign of the resurrected Christ from the letter to the Hebrews. In these five sessions, Jesus is described as the imprint of God, the owner of a household, the great high priest, a priest forever, and the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.

Unit 3, “Alpha and Omega,” has four sessions based on the last two chapters of the book of Revelation. In these chapters, John uses metaphors of one who makes all things new, a vision of a New Jerusalem, a river of life, and the beginning and the end of all things to explore how God reigns.
