We are a very international group with members coming from Asia to America. Coming together in fellowship to study the word of our Lord, share and pray for each other makes this home group more than just a meeting of church members. We aim to be family for whomever is looking for a spiritual home outside the church building of IBCZ. Some of our members are even from other churches, but happen to live in the neighborhood. Schlieren is located close to the western boarder of the Canton of Zurich and easily accessible by car or train. We meet every Tuesday, 19:30 – 21:30. If you would like to join this study please contact: Oliver Herrmann or Jessie Zheng Zhang.
The strange language, the weird descriptions, the complicated historical details – we wonder what God intended us to get from books like Isaiah. And yet, Isaiah is frequently quoted in the New Testament and tells us much about God’s plan of salvation. It’s a book we should read.
Two Cities is designed to help us get a grip on – and be gripped by – the message of Isaiah. It cuts a highway through the ‘branches’, ‘stumps’ and ‘deserts’ that are scattered across Isaiah’s terrain. It takes us to a two-way intersection and shows us the road to the city of destruction and the road to the city of God. Two Cities draws together the meaning of Isaiah’s many prophesies of woe and songs of praise. We come to see that, as Isaiah prophesied, Christ is both our servant and our King.
