Abstract
This dissertation is about a biblical study centered on the Messiah concept and its application in church. The first three chapters discussed the main theme of Messiah in the Bible to derive the conclusion that the whole Bible is centered on the Messiah and how this concept relates to the Book of Matthew and John toward worship. The fourth chapter illustrates what the author's church (Fullerton Church) has applied the Messianic Presence as the center of missions and how cross-cultural mission has become the way of worshipping the Lord by her Church.

Author
Hwan Jae Lee
Abstract
This thesis is intended to help and encourage the Jun Gok church members to announce the gospel confidently. For a long time, they have not acknowledged what the gospel is in detail, and they also have not known how to announce the gospel. But it is very dangerous for the church because it might not survive without evangelism. Moreover, at this age that the world is increasingly falling away from the church, if the church lost its vitality, which is given by evangelism, it might disappear. That is why this thesis is projected to provide the church with the spiritual vitality by the evangelical training through the Bible study.

Author
David W Chapman
Abstract
The purpose of the study was to explore how lay people who hold to the doctrine of inerrancy engage hermeneutical strategies in reading Bible texts considered difficult. The research, following a literature review, engaged qualitative methodology through personal interviews guided by four research questions. These questions explored the participants' beliefs about inerrancy, their approaches to difficult texts, their methods of interpretation which were largely individualistic, and their reliance upon God's guidance in understanding texts. The conclusion was that the participants read in light of a vigorous personal commitment to God without further academic engagement with the formal doctrine of inerrancy.
