Charles e Whisnant, Studying Isaiah and Luke


I taught Isaiah in First Baptist Church in Altoona, Kansas back in 1986, well thru chapter 21 I believe. I had hand printed notes. All before Internet for sure.-
I hand wrote notes back in FBC.  The first nine chapter of Isaiah I had 174 written notes.
So I am glad I have kept my notes. And I have used them a lot. But in 2012-13 there is so much more research material I can use.


The Study of the Gospel of Luke 
Started February 19 2012
Introduction and Chapter One and Two
Lessons in Chapters 1 &2  36 lessons

March 18 2018
Studying the outlines of Luke and the Chapters
I have never studied the book of Luke,
The series in the Old Testament on Wednesday Night
The Book of Isaiah. Two volumes for chapter 1 thru 8

Started Isaiah back in June 27, 2012 on Wednesday Night.
Chapter One thru Eight:  There have been 33 lessons.
Now I am in chapter 9 and will need another binder

And I have recorded the sermons on Cassette Tapes back in FBC - Altoona, KS and have recorded most of the lessons at ROJBC -Minford, OH on Video Tape.

I do teach from a full manuscript. But it seems I can never cover the material in one lesson. Thank of  that!!!!!!
