“The King is Here”: A Study in Matthew’s Gospel
When Bill Gaither wrote the song “The King is Coming” back in 1962, it struck an immediate favorable chord with the Christian public. Its note of hope regarding Jesus’ kingly return resonated with believers from all walks of life.
When Matthew the tax collector, otherwise known as Levi, wrote his record of the life of Jesus Christ in the first century, he could easily have titled it “The King is Here”. In fact, the key phrase found in the gospel is “…the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3: 2, 4:17).
Matthew was written to Jewish citizens to answer questions about Jesus of Nazareth. Was He the Messiah predicted in Old Testament scriptures? Was His offer of a kingdom toIsraela legitimate offer? If so, why was it rejected? Will such a kingdom ever be established on earth? And it what form, if any, does His kingdom operate on earth today?
However, Matthew’s gospel is extremely relevant to believers today, according to SEBC president Dr Don Hawkins. “This is the gospel that presents in clear, pointed form, the ‘Great Commission’ to make disciples of all nations. Plus, Matthew is the only gospel with a direct reference to “My church” (16:18).
“This two-semester verse-by-verse study provides a valuable focus on the person of our Savior”, Dr. Hawkins observed. “These classes provide an excellent means for the college to serve the greaterBirminghamcommunity, and there is no charge to participate.”
Evening classes will begin Monday, September 9th at 7 p.m. and meet in classroom 244 (entrance A). Morning classes will begin Tuesday, September 10th at 10:30 a.m., and will also meet in classroom to 244.

Alyssa Lehr Evans was granted the Louisville Institute Doctoral Fellowship for 2013-2015. This Fellowship is a two-year award focused on first and second year Ph.D. students who are considering theological education as their vocation. The program is designed to support the formation of ecclesially engaged academics. Ten students are selected for this opportunity, and the cohort will meet in Louisville three times during each fellowship year. The Louisville Institute is a Lilly-Endowment-funded program based at Louisville Seminary.
Using the funds from this award, Alyssa was able to spend the month of July in Göttingen, Germany, and take a course at the Goethe Institute. In addition to connecting with Reformation scholars at Göttingen University, she was privileged to travel to Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
On May 10th, SEBC celebrated the graduating class of 2013. In the commencement ceremony, Dr. Hawkins charged the graduates to avoid the hazard of comparison and trust God to fulfill his unique purpose for each of them. Our guest speaker was Jeff Jones, an SEBC alumnus, who is the senior pastor of Chase Oaks Church in Plano Texas. He spoke from 2 Timothy 2:1-9, explaining to the students that they were responsible for influencing their generation for the cause of Christ and for passing the gospel to the next generation. He gave each gradate a baton to remind them of the task that is now theirs. Ferrell Lucas Gossett was the class valedictorian and Kellie April Curb the salutatorian. Congratulations to the 2013 graduates!

Reflecting God through the Proverbs- Spring Bible Study
A proverb is a concentrated, catchy and practical statement designed to provide insight into life. Biblical proverbs, written by wise King Solomon and others, are designed to provide the reader with wisdom and skill for living.
“Reflecting God through the Proverbs” is the title for the series of studies taught by Southeastern president Dr. Don Hawkins during the spring semester. According to Dr. Hawkins, “The concept of wisdom as reflected in Proverbs involves developing the practical skill for living in a manner that pleases God. Thus the title of our study, ‘Reflecting God through the Proverbs’, expresses the ultimate goal of this series of studies.”
Among the topics to be covered during the semester are securing wisdom, experiencing God’s guidance, overcoming temptation, handling our finances, dealing with anger, cultivating friendships, developing diligence and resolving conflict. “As you can see from these topics, our studies will touch life in an extremely practical way,” Dr. Hawkins observed. “These classes provide an excellent means for Southeastern Bible College to serve the greater Birmingham community, and there is no charge to participate.”
Evening classes will begin Monday, January 28 at 7 p.m. and meet in classroom to 244 (entrance A). Morning classes will begin Tuesday, January 29 at 10:30 a.m., and will also meet in classroom to 244.
