“In the Word” Bible Studies from Concordia Seminary are unique, complete electronic Bible studies-in-a-box. All the materials are downloadable – the Student study sheets, the Leader Guides, and the video presentations.
The newest series, “Reaching the Summit and Holding On to Hope: 1 Corinthians 15 and the Resurrection,” is presented in five video vignettes. The first four videos feature discussion of the text of 1 Corinthians by Dr. Jeffrey Gibbs and Dr. Jeffrey Kloha in a casual setting. In the video for the last session, Dr. Gibbs and Rev. Gary Ellul discuss implications for hope in Christ as it applies to challenging questions of life and death. The Leader Guides and Student Handouts were written by Pastor Ellul. The flexible format allows the facilitator to complete this study in one session, or up to five.
“The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most important event that has ever occurred — this is the day that changed everything,” commented Dr. Jeffrey Kloha. “This study works through 1 Corinthians 15 to help understand the present and future hope that we have because Jesus rose.”
Bible study groups that begin the study on April 15 (Second Sunday of Easter) will have the opportunity to post questions and comments on Concordia Seminary’s faculty Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ConcordiaTheology. Dr. Gibbs and Dr. Kloha will interact with the questions and comment on the Sunday and Monday following each session. “Like” us on Facebook and join in the study.
You can preview the videos on concordiatheology.org, or download them for free via iTunesU. The full package is also available on DVD for a $10 handling fee. Please visit https://store.csl.edu/bible-studies/in-the-word-summit/ for ordering information or call 314-505-7117.
