Stand Firm Teaching

Our approach

"I want to make you keen-sighted, and not simply exercise you superficially, but bring you to the deep of the divine Scriptures, a deep without storms, a deep safer than any calm sea. The father out you go, the greater safety you find. For here there is no disordered rush of waters, but an orderly arrangement of ideas." - St. John Chrysostom

"We recognize a tree by its fruit, and we ought to be able to recognize a Christian by his action. The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives, for being a Christian is more than making sound professions of faith. It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways. Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs, and live them out, than to talk eloquently about what we believe, but fail to live by it." - St. Ignatius to the Ephesians

"Whenever you read the Gospel, Christ himself is speaking to you. And while you read, you are praying and talking with him." - St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

"The old men used to say: God demands nothing from Christians except that they shall harken to the Holy Scriptures, and carry into effect the things that are said in them." - The Sayings of the Desert Fathers

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. - Philippians 1:27-28

Class Reviews

"[This] Bible study is an exceptional class. It is evident that he devotes a lot of time because he is thoroughly and deeply prepared every week. He powerfully demonstrates how interwoven the books are and educates us in a manner that truly illuminates who Jesus Christ is and what He did. Josh educates us with what the Bible itself states - he shows us the linkage. This inspires me to out-of-class Bible study and to prayerfully contemplate my gifts, talents, and abilities and listen for God's guidance for His purpose.
