The Bible Study programs that we offer are part of the Great Adventure series of Bible studies published by Ascension Press. The Great Adventure Bible study programs are designed to help you make sense of the Bible and experience the life-changing power of God’s Word. The Bible is made up of seventy-three books; forty-six in the Old Testament and twenty-seven in the New Testament. The Great Adventure series divides the Bible in 12 time periods and focuses on the fourteen books of the Bible that tell the story of salvation history. Once we know the story we can begin to understand how the other fifty-nine books, called supplemental books, fit into the story.
The first study in this series is Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. This is an eight week study that gives an overview of the whole Bible by focusing on the fourteen narrative books. It is a great place to start for those who have never read the Bible or for those who want to grow in their understanding of God’s Word.
After this there is a foundation series of three studies which go in-depth through the story. There is The Bible Timeline, a twenty-four week study of the fourteen narrative books. This is followed by Matthew: the King and His Kingdom, a twenty-four week study on the Gospel of Matthew giving you a greater understanding of who Jesus is and what his mission is. Finally, there is Acts: the Spread of the Kingdom, a twenty week study showing how the Apostles spread the message of Jesus to the ends of the earth.
In addition to the introductory studies in the foundational series there are also numerous studies on various books or themes in the Bible such as; Exodus, Revelation, Ephesians, the Prophets, Psalms, Galatians, First Corinthians, and more.
