In this final book of the Bible, we will discover themes that are beautifully woven all throughout Scripture and how they come to a climatic end. This book is deeper than a literal interpretation - when this fact is missed, reading Revelation can be dreadful and scary.
In this book of Joel, we will dive deeper into the Minor Prophets category to discover what God spoke through the prophet Joel. As we journal through this book, keep in mind how this is distinct from the other prophetic books. What makes this book unique?
In this book of Hosea, we will learn a lot about the kind of love that God has for His people. He loves you like a husband loves a wife, and how a father loves a child. Do you see any other examples of God’s love in this book?
In this book about the life of Daniel we will learn about a lot of extreme examples of God’s protection for those who love him. Where else in the Bible have you read about God protecting his people? Have you ever experienced God’s protection in your own life?
In this book of Ezekiel we will discover themes of God’s faithfulness, a lot of prophetic literature, and even some images of God’s glory that links with the book of Revelation.
In this book of lament poems, we come to a deeper understanding of the grief and trauma that the Israelites experienced with the Babylonian exile. Note, that this is a book filled with questions like: Why, God!? - and it was still included in the Bible. Why is that? What does that tell us about God? What does that say about people?
The book of Jeremiah tells us about a prophet who had a message to share with the tribe of Judah. How does this message differ from the message brought by Isaiah? What makes someone a prophet? How does this fit into our Bibles as a whole? We will answer these questions and more as we journey through this book together.
In this book about the prophet Isaiah, we encounter our first prophetic literature in our journey through the Bible that started in Genesis. However, you will remember that many others have stood before God and His people as a translator: Moses, Elijah, and many more. Isaiah is a book that is looking backwards to the Israelites’ history, and forward to the hope of the Kingdom that God promised them.
The Songs of Solomon, or Songs of Songs, is a very misunderstood book of the Bible. It is so unique in style that it stands alone. The author of this creative book tells us about two characters and their love story. But what does this have to do with God? Why is this book in our Bible? And what does it mean for us today? It is impossible to understand without a few keys.
