Weekly Home Bible Study (Course)
A friend has been asking me, for a few years to start a weekly Bible study. I have been resistant, as I have been when others have asked me to start a study, due to many factors. A few being; I don't want to be presumptuous, I don't want them to feel a weekly Bible study could replace fellowship with an actual congregation, and lastly it is very serious business.
But after laying some ground rules, I decided to go forward and to be as transparent as possible, I'll be posting the basic outline of each week's study here online. The actual studies will take place on Wednesday nights in the Indianapolis area if anyone is interested (contact me).
Before I would agree to do the study, a few ground rules had to be established so as to avoid the study becoming something none of us desires.
With these simple ground rules, I hope to maintain a study where I am more like a tour guide to the Bible and so that the environment will stay focused on what the text actually says, and how it has been interpreted by the bulk of historic Christianity and why. We are NOT going to be trying to find some new or special meaning to the Bible, but rather try to understand the faith as delivered once and for all to the saints, and to hold fast to the biblical "tradition" passed down by the apostles (Jude 1:3, 2 Thes 2:15)
For those following along online, I will post some follow up notes to each week's study. Feel free to comment as you'd like. You will be able to access all of the studies as they are completed by following this link: Weekly Bible Study
I wanted to present the study plan as far in advance as possible so that participants can be thinking about the upcoming week's study. Here are the first 3 week's plans.
WEEK 1 - What is the Bible and Why?
WEEK 2 - Why are we Christians and not others?
WEEK 3 - The Nature of God. Who is God?
