    Dear JMH,

    Have you taught a class on Colossians? If so, could you provide those materials?

    Yours, Matthew

  2.   John Mark Hicks Says:

    I don’t have any prepared materials on Colossians. Sorry.

  3.   Chris Buxton Says:

    Just wanted to say thanks so much, Dr. Hicks, for a great site with such a wealth of info. This former student is very appreciative of your work.

  4.   George Says:

    The teaching materials are very rewarding to my studies and teaching. They reflect the authors hardwork, an indepth research and his sincere faith to make studies simple for God’s people.

    Dr. Hicks God richly bless you.

    Hey, John Mark. I’m about to start teaching a ladies’ class on the gospel of Mark (I picked this one because it is the shortest of the gospels so hopefully will fit into time frame better). Do you have any materials for this study or do you know where would be a good place to look? Thanks so much!

  6.   John Mark Hicks Says:

    Stephanie, I don’t have any written materials on Mark, but I would recommend you look at Allen Black’s (of Harding Graduate School in Memphis) commentary on Mark in the College Press series for some popular-level help on the texts. Tom Olbricht’s “Power to Be” is a 13 week Bible Class study of the Gospel of Mark. Allen is the man I turn to get some good ideas and resources on Mark; you might want to check with him. I’m sure he has some resources to help.

      John Mark recently i stumbled on some of your comments having to do with a teaching of grace by K.C. Moser .

      You might like to contact his grandson who has exceeded his grandfathers teaching . I cut my teeth on K.C.Moser’s teaching .
      I even have some of his tapes where he is spaeking his teaching .

      He influenced my life greatly but then one day over 32 years ago i had the blessing of meeting ‘his grandson’ and began setting under his teachings . My life was changed greatly as he taught me to dig and ask things outside the box .
      Kelly Newman has a masters degree in blble and is now working on his second masters in Hewbrew studies . Plus he has had the blessing of traveling to Isreal. He is a good friend to Dr. Roy Blizzard who spent many many years in isreal as a archaeologist and Dr. of hebrew studies .
      You might like talking to him directly so Im going out on a limb and telling you how to find him . Kelly Newman . Knowing him will BLESS yor life .
      He is always thrilled to discuss or teach others while they are seaching for greater depth and understanding to the WORD of GOD. Be blessed !
      simply contact him and tell him that i emailed u and gave his name and email address . Have a blessed day,

  7.   Bennie Harris Says:

    John, thank you so very much for your ministry. I find myself following your work and being more interested in the perspective that you bring and the simplicity that you present. thank

  8.   Jim Welch Says:

    I am looking for class material on “Grace” and am having trouble finding it. Can you offer any assistance? Thanks.

      much has been said about the teaching of “k.c. moser on grace” .
      im very much awear of his teaching . but even better i have had the BLESSING of his grandsons teachings for over 32 years . Because of K.C.Mosers profound infleunce ofthe teaching of grace it allowed his grandsons teaching to go much farther in dept into the Word .
      maybe you would like to be introduced to K.C. Mosers grandson .
      so Im going to go out on a limb here and tell you where to find him . his name is Kelly Newman .
      Kelly has a masters in bible and is now working on his second masters degree in hebrew studies . Plus he has the wonderful added understanding of the bible through hebrew eyes . He has traveled to Isreal and is taught himself by bible schlors of profound deep teaching .
      again i say i have had the blessing for over 32 years of kelly being my teacher and friend .
      I hope he will be a blessing to you . simply contact him . He is always eager to discuss or teach spiritual truths with anyone .

    Just needed to take a moment out of my day and THANK YOU for the tremendous help your notes have been. In my first work, struggling, week to week, overwhelmed. Your 1 John notes have helped me see the big picture, organize my thoughts, have a plan, and I’m halfway through preaching the letter. You have helped me so much. Just really thankful for your work.

  10.   John Mark Hicks Says:

    Thank you, David, for your kind words and use of the website. Blessings
