(2018-2019) Story Of The Bible

This is an exciting study combining several classes into one for a two year trek through all of God's scriptures to learn of the full story of God's purpose in Jesus and His people.  Overall questions we seek to answer in this study are:

  • What is the Bible?
  • What is is about?
  • How do I understand God's will from it?

Come and join us as we seek a better understanding of the answers to those questions!

Given the breadth of material, even though two years are scheduled, there will not be sufficient time to dig down into every detail.  We don't want to "miss the forest" by looking at the "trees".  We want to make sure we step back and see the big picture of God's message to us.

 

How The Study Works:

Foundation: Daily / Weekly Readings

We have a suggested schedule in PDF below that many of us will be following.  This has the advantage of many reading and discussing the same passages together at the same time.  Ultimately, figuring out a time and schedule that works for you is what you should do.  Reading God's Word is what is important.  Without this critical point, this study will not be of much benefit!

Class: Focus on key texts

  • Will not attempt to touch on everything
  • Rather, emphasize passages central to the main plot and themes
  • Sometimes the readings will help prepare for class, sometimes the class will help prepare for the readings

Sermons, talks, other studies may coordinate.

What's Expected:

  • Read

What's Not Expected: Memorization of names, dates, or maps
