Heritage of the Bible
With so many opinions circulating about the credibility and usefulness of the Bible, it is important for Christians to understand the truth about the Bible’s origins. Where did it come from? Who wrote it? Is it God’s own words? By answering these questions, this study will equip group participants with the knowledge and appreciation of God’s Word, enabling them to combat the doubt and skepticism so prominent in today’s society.
Throughout these sessions, group members will study the history and development of the Bible, the biographies of Scripture writers, God’s miraculous protection of His Word, and the Bible’s credibility.
Certainly, the Holy Bible is more than a family heirloom or trendy cover stacked on a shelf. Understanding and believing the Bible as God’s letter to His creation shapes a Christian’s perspective of God’s mercy, power, and love—safeguarding a heart and mind against the deceitful tactics of Satan.
Below are some invitations for you to use to encourage participation. You should announce this study in various ways: church bulletins, announcements, newsletters, emails, and social networking. The invitations below are short enough for text messages and social networking statuses.
