What's Inside the Essentials Study? Recommended
The Essentials Study for Journey: Advocates offers abridged versions of each lesson in comparison to the Bible Study. We are planning to have most of the group use the Essentials Study this year.
In order for the group to have some questions in common to discsuss, you will choose two of three questions to answer in connection with each lesson in the Essentials Study. The questions will be posted to the Online Journey facebook group right after the previous week’s meet. These questions will be the basis of our group discussion. Feel free to use reference books (like Bible dictionaries, commentaries, concordances), search online, listen to/watch sermons, and/or ask a mentor/parent/pastor. Record your findings below.
Here are some example questions:
- What was the motivation of the Pharisees and Sadducees in trying to trap Jesus?
- Take a look at Paul in Acts 17:1-4, Acts 19:8-9, and Acts 28:23-24. How did he use reasoning/logic to lead people to saving knowledge of Christ?
- What are some arguments against the Christian faith today? Do you think these arguments are logical?
What's inside the Bible Study?
The Journey: Advocates Bible Study includes a daily devotional to help you dive deep into the Word of God. The full Bible Study is an available option for those who would like to do the extra work. See the differences between the Bible Study and the Essentials Study as noted below.
