Just as Tennessee state officials started enforcing social distancing guidelines encouraging people to stay home due to COVID-19 in March, It Is Written began airing a weekly Sabbath School Bible study and sermon series for its viewers.

The It Is Written TV Sabbath School program features John Bradshaw, speaker/director of It Is Written, along with the co-authors of the current Adult Bible Study Guide, “How to Interpret Scripture,” Michael Hasel, professor of Near Eastern Studies and Archaeology at Southern Adventist University, and Frank Hasel, associate director of the Biblical Research Institute. The authors are also cousins.

“It’s a huge honor to be able to discuss the authenticity and practicality of the scriptures with these scholars,” shared Bradshaw. “Each week we dig into a lesson on interpreting and understanding the word of God. This is so important to us as Christians, especially right now in earth’s history.”

The three men have met digitally over the past several weeks to film the programs and connect the lessons in practical ways to current events.

“When so much uncertainty exists in the world around us, these studies are grounding us in the word of life that never changes,” continued Bradshaw.

The Sabbath School program and accompanying sermons air multiple times each weekend on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on It Is Written TV, where viewers can also access past episodes.
