Growing by Encountering God in the Bible
Bible study is an opportunity to encounter God as well as learn about who we are as a Church. When people study God’s Word together in groups, they have an opportunity to know each other on a deeper level than is usually possible. It becomes an opportunity to build community and to extend that community in care for others.
Adult Bible Study: Exodus, Part Two
The exodus is the central event of the Old Testament, giving meaning to everything else we find in its pages.
Part Two of this study covers the final twenty-five chapters of Exodus. Beginning with the insecurity of the desert wanderings, to encountering God on Sinai and then constructing the tent of dwelling, God's people learn what it means to be part of a covenant with the one who liberates and also gives the Law to guide and direct them.
Commentary, study and reflection questions, prayers, and access to online video lectures are included. Introduction and five lessons.
Daily Personal Study: Participants spend time prayerfully reading and reflecting on an assigned section of the Scriptures. Each lesson includes prayer, the assigned Scripture text, solid biblical commentary, and questions for learning and reflection. Ideally, if you devote about 20 minutes a day to the process, you will find it manageable and allow time for the material to sink in. This time of personal study provides the foundation for each week’s small group discussion.
Weekly Small-Group Sharing (90 minutes): Gather weekly with others who are studying the same material. You will share the fruits of your personal study, and in the process, discover new insights. A facilitator will help to create an atmosphere of openness and trust in which God’s Word and its application to daily life can be discovered and discussed. A brief video lecture will help to develop and clarify the themes of the lesson. 5 sessions
