    Un Evangelio Transformador – Spanish Bible Study  
    Bill Ogden   |  Room 227
    Aunque restringido como prisionero en Roma, el deseo del apóstol Pablo de que los creyentes de las iglesias jóvenes vivieran un Evangelio transformador no falló. Sus cartas a Éfeso y Colosas primero establecen el fundamento cristiano para la vida y luego proceden a la aplicación práctica. Haremos un estudio comparativo utilizando cada carta para ayudarnos a comprender mejor una y aplicar la otra.

    A Transforming Gospel 
    Although a prisoner in Rome, the apostle Paul’s desire for the believers in these young churches to live out the Gospel did not fail. His letters to Ephesus and Colossae established the Christian foundations for life and offered a practical application for its readers. This class will do a comparative study of Ephesians and Colossians to help us better understand these texts and apply their principles to our lives.
