The Knowing the Bible series is a new resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God's Word. Each 12-week study leads participants through one book of the Bible and is made up of four basic components: (1) Reflection questions designed to help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) "Gospel Glimpses" highlighting the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) "Whole-Bible Connections" showing how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) "Theological Soundings" identifying how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from a wide array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God's grace on each and every page of the Bible.
In his letter to the Philippian church, the apostle Paul seeks to encourage and strengthen his readers in the midst of difficult circumstances and severe social ostracism. In this engaging study, pastor Ryan Kelly helps readers grasp Paul's exhortation to embrace hardship as good citizens of the kingdom of God and faithful imitators of Jesus Christ.
