John | "Listen Up" Bible Study
The uniqueness of the Listen Up! Bible Study series:
God's word is alive, with something new to say to all of us.
That's why the Listen Up! Bible Study series does not simply teach information about the Bible. It listens to God speak.
In these Bible studies, you will be encouraged to listen: listen to the Bible, listen to your own questions and responses, and listen to the honest sharing among participants in your study group. In that mix of biblical text, personal engagement, and honest speaking and listening, God's word may be heard, speaking challenge and comfort. (Browse the collection of Listen Up! Bible studies.)
John Listen Up! Bible Study
"What are you looking for?" (John 1:38)
Are you looking for comfort, solace, a balm for an aching soul? Are you looking for resistance, struggle, and challenge to a broken world? Are you looking for a way to interpret life through the lens of love, mercy, and redemption?
All of this (and more) you will find in the pages of John.
Jesus, as portrayed in the Gospel of John, is a complicated figure: a larger-than-life leader, a (com)passionate man, a man whose life reveals patterns in our own lives. With the Gospel of John (as with much of life), the times when you are most uncomfortable are also when you are most likely to find God.
What are you looking for? And if you find it, what will you do?
This study is divided into two parts (two booklets):
- Part 1 studies John 1:1 - 11:44,
- and Part 2 studies John 11:45 - 21:19.
Leader's Guide included in this workbook.
