One of our most popular Bible study series is on Bible characters. Each study takes an in depth look at one person in the Bible and their life story. Their history and background are examined along with key events in their life. Strengths and weaknesses are identified. The purpose is to find helpful lessons from their lives which we can apply to our lives today.
Small group Bible studies really enjoy studying the life of a person. The spiritual giants in the Bible faced the same struggles as we do. They had the same failures or successes. Thus the lessons learned from them are extremely practical. Our hope is that by studying them you will be able to follow their good examples, but avoid their mistakes.
You will notice that our character studies follow a specific format. Our suggestion is that you ask those in your Bible study to download the Character Study Form and fill it out before coming to the group meeting. This personal study can give them a much deeper understanding of the character and train them to study the Word for themselves.
Our easy to follow Characters study contains:
– 8 practical lessons on the Bible characters: Abraham, Barak, Samuel, Johnathan, Solomon, Mordecai/Hamaan, Elisha, and John the Baptist.
– Thematic and relevant cross-references to save your time flipping through the Bible while having related verses at your finger-tips.
– Hundreds of teaching points and observations to help you understand the text in a deep, but practical way. Emphasis is placed on obedience throughout.
– Many practical applications designed to show how these men of faith are relevant to our lives today and encourage obedience in response to the text.
We hope you will enjoy the eight lessons inside as you draw close to God and help others to know Him better.
