Paul's prison epistles

Bound in chains, Paul writes his letters to the Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians and to Philemon.

Now an old man, Paul writes to the next generation. This gospel will go across generations. We cover his letters to Timothy and Titus.

 

The suffering epistles

There is purpose and grace in suffering; find out how God ensures this in the epistle to the Hebrews, James and 1 Peter.

 

The heresy epistles

The apostles teach the church to stand firm against false teachings in 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John and Jude.

 

The apocalypse

"Behold I am coming soon!" We go through Revelation to learn what Jesus reveals about the end.

Plotting the Prophets

God's faithful messengers, not only confronting Israel in their day but also lifting the nation's eyes to see God's redemptive purposes. We go through Isaiah to Malachi, also seeing how these prophets fit into Israel's biblical history.

 

OT poetry and wisdom

We learn the richness of Israel's ministry to God in song, poem, story and ethics in the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs.

 

History of the early church

Here comes the King! We start our review of the New Testament in Acts looking at how Jesus takes the kingdom to the nations through His church.

We see the triumph and trouble of spreading the gospel in Paul's letters to the Galatians and the Thessalonian church.

 

Paul's 3rd journey epistles

More travel for Paul, and more letters written: this time to the Corinthian and Roman churches.

Getting to know the Bible

What is the Bible? Where did it come from? How did it come to be? What is its story? This important kick-start course cover all these and other questions.

 

Jesus and the Gospels

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are four important eye-witness accounts of the good news of the life and message of our Lord Jesus. All of the Old Testament was preparing for this moment. Christ is here!

 

The formation of Israel

Covering Genesis to Deuteronomy, we cover the start of God's journey to bring about redemption to those He loves.

 

The rise and fall of Israel

God brought Israel into the promised land but because of their ongoing sin, idolatry and injustice He took them from the land. Did God fail? Or did He use this time to prepare Israel for the Christ? We touch on Joshua through to 2 Chronicles.

 

Israel during and after exile

They left the land, but God never left them... it's time for restoration! This course covers Esther, Ezra and Nehemiah.

BibleLife offers a journey through the Scriptures in 15 courses. Each course consists of three classes of 90 minutes. Courses are offered five times per year. Participants are welcome to do only one course, pick-and-choose, or complete the entire 15 courses. Although there are advantages to starting at the beginning and working through the courses consecutively, they are each designed as stand-alone courses and participants can start at any place.

 

The content and shape of BibleLife's courses are inspired by Nigel Day-Lewis's "A Survey of the Bible", a course developed in the 1990s when Nigel was a pastor at Glenridge Church and later at London Church International.
