Disciple Fast Track Under The Tree Of Life Leader Guide - Ebook [Epub]
Ideal for busy people who want to fit an in-depth Bible study into their schedule!
Under the Tree of Life concentrates on Old Testament Writings, the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, James, Jude, and finally, Revelation. Emphasis on the Psalms as Israel's hymnbook and prayer book leadsnaturally to an emphasis on worship in the study. Present through the entire study is the sense of living toward completion – toward the climax of the message and the promise, extravagantly pictured in Revelation. The image ofthe tree and the color gold emphasize the prod and promise in the Scriptures. The word under in the title is meant to convey invitation, welcome, sheltering, security, and rest – home at last.
Along with the Leader Guide, each leader needs a copy of the Study Manual(s) and Bible to guide their study and preparation for the weekly group session. Minimal additional preparation is needed for the leader—just preparehandouts and follow the Leader Guide. Weekly sessions last 75 minutes. Hosts will provide 3–5 minute video insights related to the week's session.
The titles of the sessions along with theme words and theme verses, and major persons, events, and topics will set the sequence of the biblical story in the minds of the participants. The principal Scripture for each sessionfollows the chronological movement of the biblical story.
