I spent some time this week with a new collection of Bible studies you’re going to want to know about. Life Lessons from Jesus is actually a collection of 5 studies (with a total of 36 lessons), all of which will appeal to your small group leaders and members.
While Life Lessons from Jesus is not a DVD-driven study and it doesn’t include a leader’s guide, it’s written in a way that will be relatively easy for all but the least experienced leaders to facilitate.
Originally published as 5 individual studies in a series called New Community Bible Studies, this is a great collection of the studies that feature the teaching of Jesus. The 5 studies that are included in the collection are:
- The Sermon on the Mount by Bill Hybels (12 sessions)
- The Lord’s Prayer by John Ortberg (6 sessions)
- The Parables by John Ortberg (6 sessions)
- The Passion by Bill Hybels (6 sessions)
- Luke by Bill Hybels (6 sessions)
Life Lessons from Jesus is designed to expose group members to Jesus, the Great Teacher. Every session includes a well-written ice-breaker question or two that will pull members into the truth of the lesson. A thought-provoking set of discussion questions will help explore the truths taught by Jesus the Rabbi. Each session also includes an emphasis on reflection and application. Far more than a study that will help members learn about Jesus, these sessions are designed to help members become like Jesus.
This is a very good collection of studies. If your group is looking for a study that digs deeply into the teachings of Jesus, you’re going to want to take a look at Life Lessons from Jesus. I like this study and I think you will too.
