In the Gospel According to John, Jesus never says, “Your faith has made you well.” He heals no fewer than five people over the course of the Gospel. How can this be? And how do the healings speak to the lives of contemporary Christians? During the sessions of this module, Unusual Healings, we will learn that responding to Jesus’ call in our lives and discovering a personal identity based on his divine identity naturally lead to healing, new life, and mission.
Session 1 - Get Up and Walk. Noticing When Healing Happens to You.
Session 2 - Go and Wash. Noticing an Identity You've Always Had.
Session 3 - Come Out of the Tomb. Noticing the Gifts God Gives You.
Session 4 - Feed My Sheep. Noticing When Christ Heals You for Mission.
Each session begins with an opening prayer, followed by the text of the day being read aloud. The group will enjoy a 5-7-minute video where Adam shares his thought on the Scripture and its "unusual" focus. The group will discuss the readings for the day then close with prayer.
The new and exciting aspect of this particular Bible study series is the blending of traditional weekly Sunday school with modern, daily-delivered digital content, which will keep readers connected with the material throughout the week. Between the daily communication and the group gatherings, participants will immerse themselves in the Good News.
The emails that accompany this study are crucial to the small-group experience and leaders should notify small-group members to subscribe for their emails at least 1-2 days in advance of the first gathering.
