Bad Boys of the New Testament | Exploring Men of Questionable Virtue (Essex)


Bad Boys of the New Testament: Exploring Men of Questionable Virtue, a seven-week small group studies session, is part of Barbara Essex's popular series of Bible studies. Each study unit reviews the stories of selected biblical "bad boys" in the New Testament, such as: the Elder Brother of the Prodigal Son parable, the Pharisees, Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, and Ananias. Following each scripture review, Essex provides a short commentary and background to make the study enjoyable. Reflection questions conclude each unit, offering you the opportunity to start a discussion about what you learned from these characters and their stories. Bad Boys of the New Testament is ideal for individual and group study.
