The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God's Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) "Gospel Glimpses" highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) "Whole-Bible Connections" show how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) "Theological Soundings" identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God's grace on every page of the Bible.
The book of Judges describes the period of Israel's history when the people of God turned their backs on their covenant with him, embracing the lifestyle of foreign nations. This study examines the book of Judges over the course of 12 weeks, highlighting how the failure of Israel's judges revealed the nation's need for a faithful leader--pointing forward to King Jesus, whose righteousness can wash away all sin.
