Anyone can understand the Bible with the right tools.

The eight-session study helps you deepen your understanding of how to use and navigate the Bible. You will learn about biblical genres and historical contexts, formation of the canon, about the Revised Common Lectionary and its purpose, and how to use resources such as study Bibles, commentaries, and maps for Bible study. Each session invites exploration, application, practice, and provides reflection questions and space to journal.

A leader guide is also available.
