Ps Greg took a small group of leaders for coffee on a Saturday morning @ Capri on Via Roma and taught on the Bible from Adam through to Paul ‘s gospel to the Gentiles. It is slightly deeper teaching. This is a recording of those sessions complete with the sounds of the cafe in the background.

Greg’s grasp of the Old and New Testament has me learning something new – often with my head reeling – almost every time I sit down with him. The Lord has given him an innate ability to open up and expound bible verses to reveal new insights, all with a strong dash of patience and humble leading.

Greg’s insight is no accident.  His commitment to study, mediate and teach the Word for more than 30 years, including prayer time on his knees, has equipped him to be a voice of reason in the climactic lead up of Jesus’ return.

There aren’t many churches these days teaching about the Kingdom of God, the Millennium, the Torah, repentance and the importance of Israel – past, present and future – let alone how they dovetail together to create picture of God’s plan for mankind.

After witnessing Greg’s life for nearly eight years, I can personally vouch that he has a heart for the lost, Israel and preparing the world for the return of Jesus and has the fruit to prove it.

If you ever get a chance to meet Greg, hear him speak, see him on-screen or read any of his material, jump at it and have your perspective widened and enlarged.

I would love to study every book of the Bible in the way Greg presented the book of Galatians.

Beginning with Abraham Greg painted a picture of the history of God’s redemptive plan.

The maps, pictures, time-frames, identification of people groups and locations from the Bible into current time, and comparisons of other historical events surrounding Biblical events brought the words on paper into 3D for me. 

Greg’s willingness to let us explore through our many side questions and discussions brought even more clarity.

While still keeping us on track, Greg was not afraid to journey with us as we worked through the bumps and twists. A great skill as a teacher.

I have learnt so much through this study. This is by far the best Bible study I have ever had the privilege of being apart of. We learnt about Abraham’s Covenant with God and how we are linked to that covenant by being grafted in and that this is the covenant we are saved by. I always thought it was the New Covenant, but we are apart of it because we were grated first into 

the Abrahamic Covenant. And learning about Isaac and Ishmael and Jacob and Esau and the blessing Jacob received that Esau would serve his brother Jacob and seeing that unfold throughout the Bible.

It is amazing and the Bible just comes alive and I now read it in a new light and all the things I found hard to understand I now know exactly what it means. This is a new fresh teaching and it is all backed up by Scriptures throughout the Bible and it all links together. I received so many revelations that when I got home, I could only sit and meditate and soak in everything that we were learning. God is so amazing and I recommend this study to everyone.

Greg’s willingness to let us explore through our many side questions and discussions brought even more clarity. While still keeping us on track, Greg was not afraid to journey with us as we worked through the bumps and twists. A great skill as a teacher.

Ps. Greg is a passionate teacher who has been able to point out the many “filters” we had in place  – filters placed by culture, tradition and at times incorrect interpretations.

When we now read the Bible, words and verses we skipped over now make a lot more sense.

We have learnt that God is faithful, with more understanding of the Covenants and how faithful He has been. The Glory of our King Jesus and His sacrifice and how blessed we are and the faithfulness and genius of Paul to our Lords word, his ministry , his mandate and his faithfulness to his Jewish heritage and the blessings we gentiles have been grafted into. Great course, great teacher very highly recommend.

This year has been a year of immense learning for me. I owe the increased knowledge that I have gained from this course I have done with Greg, along with the Holy Spirit ministering to me.

It is one thing to read the bible, it is another to understand the fullness of it in its context for it to become alive and living in your life. So, if you don’t understand the purpose of the covenants both in the old and new testament, or what the law really means, or if you are confused by what Paul says in the New Testament then I suggest you do this course.

In this course, Greg will take you on a journey of truth that I personally have not been exposed to before. His understanding and knowledge of the word will help remove any preconceived mind sets, open up healthy conversations, drive you to read and study the word of God and propel you into a deeper relationship with the father.

Once you have been on this journey you will look at the bible and its fullness through a completely different lens.

Meeting together with friends and exploring the history, culture and context of scriptures surrounding the Covenants of God has been the highlight of my past year.

It has been an incredible journey thru the pages of the bible, as Pastor Greg has bought the Word of God to life in a way I have never experienced before. 

I can not recommend this course highly enough. Just when you think you know your bible, you will be surprised by the treasures you will discover as you embark on this study!

I have had the blessing and the opportunity to work with multicultural communities and with cross cultural indigenous communities in many countries around the world. To understand people, community and cultures there are fundament aspect that you must look at. You must first consider the laws that govern the communities, the language that communicate the heart of the people, the relationship structure that bring unity and grow in that community and the mutual respect and consideration of the values in the community.

Our studies helped us to get into the heart, eyes and the mind of the Jewish nation that are the people of God chosen by Himself as his loving children.

All the above fundamental aspects were taken into consideration when we walk with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through our bible studies. Our time together was challenging, life changing, frustrating due to our own lack of understanding and it was tremendously inspiring to our lives.

I love when God’s word when it is brought to a deeper significant on what God’s Holy Spirit wants to teach us and what His heart wants to convey to his children. The historical background was fascinating and very thorough thus it gave us the opportunity to appreciate the life of so many bible characters. All the studies were confronting due to the solid evidence and the eye opening facts. In another word the studies were scrumptious to our souls.

We were able to see God’s covenant for the people of Israel through a Jewish loving perspective.

We also just were left in awe to see the patient, the love and the incredible mercy that our God has for us as his creation.

Pastor Greg Cumming gave us an unbelievable gift with his teachings and his life as a servant of God back it all 100%.

Thank you so much Pastor Greg for blessing my life so much.

No words I write could possibly capture the true in-depth revelation that Pastor Greg has presented in this course of Bible, based around God’s people (the Jewish People) starting with Abraham through to Jesus.

I have been amazed and my eyes opened to a new understanding of the scripture. This course is just magnificent, and was truly a privilege to be part of the group.

All members of the group were truly blessed at Pastor Greg’s insight into the scripture, as our eyes were opened to truth hidden in plain sight. While I have known him for a long time, I never realised his great depth of knowledge of scripture, and I have been truly blessed.

It also opened up my understanding to a couple of other points – that Paul was always obedient to the Torah, and actually defended the Torah.  

I would recommend this course to anyone seeking a greater understanding of scripture, you will be truly blessed .
