Adult Bible Studies Student Book Winter 2021-2022 - Theme Engage

Adult Bible Studies Winter 2021-2022
Theme: Engage
Perhaps at no other time during the year is the call of our faith more at odds with culture than during Advent. The Christian season that calls us to wait is met with a culture that encourages us to decorate, entertain, buy, spend, and entertain, with calendars booked from season’s beginning to its end. Such ceaseless activity can blind us to the awe and wonder of God’s presence all around us, leaving us spiritually parched, empty, and unable to join in the life and work to which God calls us. These Bible lessons call us to wait and to respond with wonder to the God who came to us in Jesus Christ, thus equipping ourselves to bear witness to our faith.

Unit 1: Wait for It
Advent is a time of anticipation and waiting. This unit invites us to explore waiting as an important element in three episodes in Luke’s telling of the Christmas story. It ends with a reminder that as much as we are called to wait for the Lord, Jesus Christ waits patiently for us.
Scriptures: Luke 1:5-25, 57-58; Luke 1:26-38, 57-58; Luke 2:25-38; Revelation 3:20-4:11

Spiritual Practice: Praying without ceasing

Unit 2: Wonder
We are a busy people rushing from place to place and task to task as the hands of the clock chase each other around the dial. We get caught up in the mundane reality of ordinary life and if we do not stop, we can so easily miss the extraordinary and sublime experience of entering into God’s presence. The lessons in this unit explore various ways human beings have experienced God’s glory.

Scriptures: Psalm 19; Isaiah 6:1-13; Mark 9:2-8; Exodus 34:29-35; Revelation 19:1-10

Spiritual Practice: Singing/meditating on hymns of praise

Unit 3: Show and Tell
The lessons in this unit explore the various ways we can participate with God through our actions. When we read through both the Old and the New Testaments, we see that by engaging in life-giving activities, we join in the work to which God set our hands in the Garden of Eden. God calls us both to show and to tell others of our faith.

Scriptures: Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Matthew 22:34-40; Matthew 5:14-16; James 1:19-27; Matthew 28:16-20

Spiritual Practice: Testimony in word and deed

Unit 1. Wait for It (December 2021)

Advent is a time of anticipation and waiting. This unit invites us to explore waiting as an important element in three episodes in Luke’s telling of the Christmas story. It ends with a reminder that as much as we are called to wait for the Lord, Jesus Christ waits patiently for us.

Unit 2. Wonder (January 2022)

We are a busy people rushing from place to place and task to task as the hands of the clock chase each other around the dial.  We get caught up in the mundane reality of ordinary life and if we do not stop, we can so easily miss the extraordinary and sublime experience of entering into God’s presence. This unit explores various ways human beings have experienced God’s sublime glory.

Unit 3. Show and Tell (February 2022)

This unit explores various ways that we can participate with God through our actions.  Because Paul uses the word “works” to refer to the Covenant of Circumcision as opposed to “faith,” the Covenant of Baptism, the word “work,” and the doing of good deeds gets, unnecessarily, a bad rap in some Christian circles. When we read through both Old and New Testaments, we see that by engaging in life-giving activities, we join in the work to which God set our hands in the Garden of Eden.
