Adult Bible Studies Fall 2021 DVD

Product Description

Adult Bible Studies Fall 2021 Video-DVD - Theme Belong

Does your group enjoy watching videos as a way to generate conversation around Bible studies? Would your teacher or group facilitator appreciate having the support of video hosts in setting the stage for Bible lessons? Then Adult Bible Studies is just what you need. Each DVD, produced quarterly, directly corresponds to that quarter’s content in Adult Bible Studies and features a video segment for each Bible lesson. In each, the host will provide some context for the Scripture and then tie that content to personal stories and daily living. Your group can then connect more deeply with the God’s Word and draw closer to God, as well as discover ways to live out biblical teachings.


Fall Theme: Belong

Unit 1. Outside In (September 2021)

Sociologists studying the story of the early church often attribute the growth of the church to the sense of belonging that it offered people in a world where belonging was limited to those with things such as property, high status, and/or birthright. This unit looks at the various ways that the Bible makes clear how we belong to God’s people even when we appear to be outsiders. Several of the sessions point out where we as human beings insert distinctions that restrict membership within the community of Christ.

Unit 2. Into the Future (October 2021)

After over 2000 years of existence as an institution, we can easily take for granted that we know what the church is.  This unit invites readers to look at it from the view of the community living into the future.  The Greek word for church, ekklesia, is not a word that the first members of the church associated with a religious activity.  The world signifies the assembly of the people of God. It is instructive to look at what their understanding of the purpose of assembling as a group signified, how it has shaped our understanding of church, and how reading these texts might renew and expand our understanding.

Unit 3. The Fellowship of the Table (November 2021)

The opening of God’s people to both Jews and Greeks, men and women, masters and slaves required people previously unaccustomed to eating together to sit down at a common table. When we look at the Gospel narratives, we see Jesus modeling open table fellowship. In this unit, we will look at the significance of the practice of open table fellowship in the church as a sign of God’s shared abundance, ministry of reconciliation, and celebration.

Hundreds of thousands of students and teachers use Adult Bible Studies each week in Sunday school classes, mid-week Bible studies, and other small group settings. Bible-based and Christ-focused, it is an approved resource by the General Board of Discipleship of The United Methodist Church. It is published quarterly.
