Item description for Short-Term Disciple Bible Study - Invitation to John DVD Planning Kit (Short-Term Disciple Bible Studies) by Abingdon Press...

Overview
Planning Kit includes DVD, Participant's Book, and Leader's Guide

In its wisdom, the early church chose to keep four Gospel accounts of the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Three of these Gospels are very similar to each other in both what they tell about the story of Jesus and how they tell it. However, the Gospel of John stands apart. In it, we find Jesus speaking not in parables but in lengthy discourses. We overhear Jesus talking with Nicodemus, a Samaritan woman, and Mary Magdalene. We marvel at Jesus turning water into wine, calling Lazarus from the tomb, and washing his disciples? feet. We linger over Jesus? great promises: ?For God so loved the world.?? ?I am the bread of life.?? ?I am the resurrection.?? ?Peace I leave with you.?? In the very first chapter of John?s Gospel, Jesus issues two invitations: ?Come and see,? and ?Follow me.? They echo the invitations of this study: to come and see this Jesus?to hear him speak, to see his signs?and to consider anew what it means to be his followers.

This eleven-week study includes a participant book outlining daily reading assignments for group preparations, a leader guide suggesting discussion activities for use in the 60?90-minute weekly meeting, and a video component providing interpretation and context for the biblical texts.

Session titles and scripture:
1. Come and See (John 1­?2)
2. How Is It Possible? (John 3?4)
3. Taste for Yourself (John 5?6)
4. To Believe or Not to Believe (John 7?8)
5. Are We Blind? (John 9?10)
6. I Couldn?t Believe My Eyes! (John 11?12)
7. Would You Believe It? (John 13?14)
8. What Time Is It? (John 15?16)
9. Look Out! (John 17?18)

Invitation To John
11 sessions, 60-90 minutes

The invitation from Christ is: "Come and see, Follow me." Experience the magnificent passages in John including the I am statements (I am the truth, the life and the way, I am the living water and more). Revisit stories only told in John's gospel including Nicodemus, Mary Magdalene and the raising of Lazarus.

During the weekly video segments, travel into the scripture as you hear the Word, experience the grand artwork connected with each story and interview the scholar. Each week wraps up with a small group discussion on video to spark your own conversation.
