Explanation of the Book:

Sometimes we ask What is God’s will for my life? when we should really be asking Who should I be? The Bible has an answer: Be like the very image of God. By exploring ten characteristics of who God is—holy, loving, just, good, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise—this book helps us understand who God intends for us to be. Through Christ, the perfect reflection of the image of God, we will discover how God’s own attributes impact how we live, leading to freedom and purpose as we follow his will and are conformed to his image.

Gain an understanding of the old and new covenants. Learn to place your hope in Jesus. Video Sessions: Session One: Introduction (41:54)--Jen highlights some of the main themes we believe the author of Hebrews was aiming to inspire: confidence in the faith, steadfastness in the midst of difficulty, and assurance that Jesus is better than anything the world has to offer. Session Two: Better than Angels (47:19)--Jen begins to unpack the idea of Christ's supremacy over all things, with particular emphasis on His supremacy over angels and His identification of God's people as His brothers and sisters. What a blessing we have in the brotherhood of Christ, who withstood temptation on earth and sympathizes with our weakness. Session Three: Better than Moses (39:26)--The author of Hebrews continues to show us that Jesus Christ is superior over all things. In this session, Jen teaches us how the author took on the looming figure of Moses to demonstrate how Christ is even better than one of the largest figures in Jewish history. Session Four: Better High Priest (43:54)--In Jewish tradition, the earthly high priest occupied the highest "strata" of society. Jen breaks down how the author of Hebrews introduces his original readers to Christ as an even better High Priest--One who has passed through the heavens and sympathized with humanity's weaknesses (Heb. 14:14-15). Session Five: Better Promise (37:30)--the author of Hebrews reminds his readers to move beyond immaturity to advance to the deeper matters of faith. Jen discusses that as we deepen our faith, we can better see the steadfast promise Christians have in Christ as our firm foundation. Session Six: Better Hope and Covenant (32:31)--The mysterious Melchizedek enters the picture in this week of study. As Jen breaks down the story of Melchizedek in Hebrews 7-8, we are reminded that the old is gone and the new is infinitely better. Session Seven: Better Tabernacle (31:49)--Jen talks about the Old Testament tabernacle and covenant. The old covenant was sealed with the blood of goats and sheep and the new is sealed with the blood of Christ. In the blood of Christ, we find forgiveness of our sins. He is a better tabernacle, and He ushered in a new covenant. Session Eight: Better Sacrifice (31:49)--Jen unpacks Hebrews 10, both the warning and the challenges. In this chapter, we learn that Jesus is a better sacrifice than the sacrifices of old. His death is once and for all. The author of Hebrews also challenges us with several "Let us" statements, encouraging us to live out what we believe. Session Nine: Consider the Faithful (44:44)--Hebrews 11 features the roll call of the faithful and is likely the best-known chapter in the book of Hebrews. Here, we learn more about this intentional and organized list, and why faithful yet flawed leaders such as David, Rahab, Gideon, and more were featured in this biblical hall of faith. Session Ten: Run the Race (49:25)--In the grand finale of the study, Jen details the final exhortation of the Book of Hebrews. In this last session, we learn to focus less on ourselves, and more on loving others and glorifying the name above all names.

Explanation of the Book:

"Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph" (Exodus 1:8). With that introduction, we enter into the story of the Hebrew people in the Book of Exodus.

Sinai to unpack the deeper meaning behind stories that may already be familiar to you: the struggle of God's people in slavery to the Egyptians, the birth and life of Moses, the plagues God leveled against Pharaoh, and God's great provision in the parting of the Red Sea.

Explanation of the Book:

Human beings were created to reflect the image of God—but only to a limited extent. Although we share important attributes with God (love, mercy, compassion, etc.), there are other qualities that only God possesses, such as unlimited power, knowledge, and authority. At the root of all sin is our rebellious desire to be like God in such ways—a desire that first manifested itself in the garden of Eden. In None Like Him, Jen Wilkin leads us on a journey to discover ten ways God is different from us—and why that’s a good thing. In the process, she highlights the joy of seeing our limited selves in relation to a limitless God, and how such a realization frees us from striving to be more than we were created to be.

Explanation of the Book:

WHY THE NAME "THE ONLY BIBLE STUDY BOOK YOU'LL EVER NEED?"There are tons of Bible study books in print. For the average person, it can be daunting and outright intimidating to know what book to get. It can be challenging to be confident that you've learned enough on how to study the Bible to last you a lifetime. Relying on God's help and my love for learning and research, I knew that I could create a book that would be "the only bible study book that you'll ever need" if you are in the 99% of people who are not seminary professors of Hermeneutics. My goal was to write a Bible study textbook for my undergraduate and graduate Bible study courses presented in a way that a layperson could read and understand. I wanted to write something that was both academic and yet attainable to the average person. This book cites over 160 different resources and has almost 400 citations and explanatory footnotes. However, we use it for our family Bible study times every Saturday, and my nine and ten-year-old sons understand the concepts very well. One of my mentors who read every chapter and provided feedback described the job done as "OUTSTANDING."The name implies this is the only Bible Study text that one will ever need. As in any good textbook, I will provide many other resources that would help the student, such as dictionaries, commentaries, and so forth. The promise the book's title makes is that the student who masters the inductive Bible study approach explained in this book will not need to read another textbook.HOW CAN YOU USE THIS BOOK? My wife, my two older sons, and I have Bible study on Saturdays. We use this textbook for it, and our nine- and ten-year old's love it. It serves as a tool for us to study God's word as a family and to introduce our children to the word of God in a way that they can study it for the rest of their lives. A friend, who doesn't read the Bible often, is excited that she can use it for herself and teach her son how to study God's word. I already mentioned that this is the textbook for undergraduate and graduate Bible study courses at Servants University. Our orphan care ministry also uses it to teach older children how to study God's word. You can use it for individual Bible study, to study the Bible as a couple, family, small group in a church, independent Bible study group, undergraduate or graduate course in a Bible college or seminary, and so forth. As designed, this book is the only Bible study book that 99% of people will ever need.
