The Torah. The Good News. The Living Water. The Gospel.

The collection of sixty-six books, poems, prophecies, and letters that we’ve come to know as the Bible is the foundation of Christianity. Sometimes it can be daunting to open it up and know what’s what, or how a poem of anger or a personal letter to someone else can have an impact on our lives. To fully illustrate that, with this series we’re going to be focusing on one book of the Bible each week, from Genesis to Revelation, for 66 weeks.
 
Our goal with this series is to help you understand the Bible as both individual books and as a whole. The stories in the Old Testament point to the character of God and foreshadow the coming of Jesus. The genealogies teach us about God’s grace and mercy as He holds true to His promises. Again and again, the entirety of Scripture points to a wholeness that is available for a bunch of broken people. It’s really just a ton of little pieces of literature that point like neon flashing arrows to the person and work of Jesus.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
 
– 2 Timothy 3:16
 

 

THREAD STUDY GUIDE

Going the entire Bible from front to back is a daunting task to say the least, and moving through it at the speed we’re choosing to go through it makes it all the more difficult. That’s why we put together this study guide for you. In it, you’ll find rundowns of each type of literature you’ll find in the Bible, breakdowns that get to the essence of each individual book and why it matters (yes, all 66), and additional resources to help guide you through the Bible. You can grab a physical copy for free from the Info Center at all our services, and here are some ways you can get it digitally:

    Thread: Matthew

    '“Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel. “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.”' Malachi 4:4-6 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAL.4.4-6

    God keeps His promises, even in the silence

    'And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”' Matthew 3:17 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.3.17https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.3.17

    'From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” ' Matthew 4:17 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.4.17

    The message of Jesus is a Kingdom rule message

    ' your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. ' Matthew 6:10 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.6.10

    When the will of God is done here on earth, part of heaven breaks out

    'Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”' Matthew 3:13-17 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.3.13-17

    'Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ” Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ ” Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ ” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him. ' Matthew 4:1-11 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.4.1-11

    'The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. ' John 10:10 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/JHN.10.10

    What you escape to will enslave you

    'Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” ' Matthew 22:34-40 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.22.34-40

    The devil has been preaching division against God and against neighbor since the beginning of time

    'They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. ' Revelation 12:11 https://my.bible.com/bible/111/REV.12.11

    Are we in the water daily before we walk out into the wilderness?

    Are you willing to be revived by this living water Daily?
