Study the Bible
Have you ever wanted to see the big picture of how the Bible fits together? Do you need some
background that could help you better understand the great story told in the Scriptures?
A SURVEY OF THE BIBLE is a teaching ministry of First Baptist Church on Fifth that seeks
to offer this kind of big picture background about the Bible. Over the course of the school year, we will survey the entire Bible. To complement the
exposition of selected passages of Scripture that we have from the pulpit and in Sunday School
classes, this study will give an overview of books in the Bible and entire sections of the Bible.
The goal of A SURVEY OF THE BIBLE is that the student will finish the study with a greater
understanding of God’s Word and a renewed desire to study the Bible more deeply.
The teacher for A SURVEY OF THE BIBLE will be Dr. David Hull. Following over forty years
as a Baptist pastor, he and his wife Jane recently retired and moved to Winston-Salem to be near
family. They have joined First on Fifth where their daughter, Emily, is the pastor. This course
will build on his years of pastoral teaching in the local church as well as in university and
In addition to making this course available to members of First on Fifth, sister churches in the
downtown area and in the local CBF church community will be invited to join us. If you are
interested in attending, please join us, and invite a friend to come with you to the study.
