Explore the life of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus Christ
We’re not that different from Joseph. True, we may not be part of a story that will be remembered for all time, but like Joseph, we encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves. At times, it can be tempting just to walk away, but Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand, faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph and learn to accept and glorify God’s will even when our situation makes it difficult to do so. Additional components for a four-week adult study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD, as well as a Youth Study Book and a Children's Leader Guide to create an all-church Advent study.
Chapter topics include:
- A Carpenter Named Joseph
- Whose Child is This?
- Raising a Child Not Your Own
- The Journey to Bethlehem
- Bonus Session: The Rest of the Story
The four-session DVD features Adam Hamilton presenting to a group in his engaging style. The video segments are approximately 10-12 minutes each and, when combined with the book, make an ideal four-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
