Into the Word.
Getting to grips with the narrative, themes and literature of the whole Bible.
This ten-session course is intended to help you to have a much stronger grasp of what the Bible is all about by linking together the whole story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Every main section of the Bible will be studied and every type of literature considered. Through this we will then discuss the main theological themes of the Bible and get to understand the big story of God’s redemption in its widest context.
Martin Charlesworth will present the teaching by video. After each session, time will be specifically allocated to discussion and feedback led by a local Facilitator. In this way we will provide significant learning opportunities and focus on important or challenging issues which we all face in understanding the Bible.
This course is both for leaders and also for all who want a chance to get deeper into God’s word to make us more effective in our Christian lives.
I am very excited about the development of ‘Into the Word’! Having been a church leader for many years, and as current ChristCentral Training Director, I have come to the conclusion that one of the greatest needs of Christians is to gain confidence in using the Bible. Gaining this confidence enables us as Christians to use it effectively in our personal lives, our witness to others, and our church ministries. It's open to all and I promise you an exciting ride!
We'll be looking at key skills for getting the most out of the Bible; essentially, we will identify how the Bible fits together and how we understand the use of different books. Therefore, 'Into the Word' is designed to help you on the journey of being fully equipped in using the Bible. It will be hands-on learning: with presentations, discussions and application.
We anticipate that in the future this course will grow and be rolled out to a variety of locations across the regions in which ChristCentral are working. If you would be interested in discussing the possibility of hosting this course in your own region, please contact our training office: [email protected]
We are finalising the process of creating a 'churches' version of the Into The Word course which will be available for use in local churches. More details about this initiative will be coming soon but we hope to launch this properly at our upcoming prayer days in October 2019.
Into the Word makes reading the bible feel like opening a well loved book and seeing familiar truths and stories in a new, exciting and fuller light. The Bible comes alive in this course.
Into the Word gave me a new insight on how to read and apply scripture in my life. There is a great balance of teaching and questioning. I would highly recommend the course.
Into The Word has helped me discover and search out the connections between Old Testament stories and their relevance to The Gospel of Jesus.
