In this 8-session video-based study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), leading New Testament scholars, N.T. Wright and Michael Bird, hope to take you on a tour of the New Testament Story, from Galilee to Golgotha, from Jerusalem to Rome. They will look at who Jesus is, the real meaning of his death and resurrection, the expansion of the church in the Greco-Roman world, examine the debates and setbacks that they had along the way, and show how Christians can live out the story of New Testament in their own lives today.
Sessions include:The Story of the New TestamentThe World of JesusLife and Death of JesusThe Resurrection of JesusThe Apostle PaulThe Early ChristiansThe Mission of the ChurchHow the NT Came to Be
Designed for use with The New Testament You Never Knew Video Study (sold separately).
Suitable for both personal and group reflection, Wright's guide through Lent will make the Bible--and the season--come alive in inspiring new ways.
Wright's engaging and accessible writing and imagery help us see Advent both in relation to the gospel message and in our own lives today. Each Sunday's text uses the Mark passage from the Revised Common Lectionary, with the rest of the week drawn from other passages in the Gospel and the lectionary. This book is suitable for both individual and group study and reflection.
