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.
In this 12-week study through the books of 1 and 2 Samuel, pastor Ryan Kelly offers insights into God’s character through the stories of the prophet Samuel and Israel’s first kings, Saul and David. With the inauguration of a monarchy in Israel, we see God’s continued care for his people as he raises up leaders and promises to be faithful to his covenant by establishing a kingdom that will never pass away.
