Item description for Short-Term Disciple Bible Study - Invitation to Genesis - Leader Guide (Disciple Bible Studies) by Abingdon Press...
Overview "In the beginning..." These familiar words open the book of Genesis and give voice to one of the foundational stories of the entire Old Testament. This short-term Disciple bible study is an invitation to see Genesis not simply as a story about the beginning (Creation), but as a book about beginnings. From Adam and Eve to Noah to Abraham, Genesis recounts God's persistence in "starting over" with the chosen people. It is a message both timeless and timely - for God's people still seek the assurance that God is always working to make right what went wrong "in the beginning".
This study takes groups into the rich tapestry of Genesis exploring the interaction between God and very human people - pride, family relationships, conflict and journey all showcase the best known stories of Creation, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Rebekah and Joseph.
The video reflects the drama of the Genesis stories, first with selected text dramatized by an actor, and then study writer, Peter Enns interviews a scholar to help unpack the meaning and the mystery in the stories.
This is an excellent choice for adults with strong biblical background from Sunday school or personal study. Disciple Bible Study participants who want more focused time with 10 full weeks on Genesis will be a good candidates for this study. Sessions: 1. The Beginning...and What Went Wrong 2.
