Bible Study: April 9, 2017

NASHVILLE (BP) — This weekly Bible study appears in Baptist Press in a partnership with LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through its Leadership and Adult Publishing team, LifeWay publishes Sunday School curricula and additional resources for all age groups.

This week’s Bible study is adapted from the Bible Studies For Life curriculum.

Bible Passage: Luke 24:44-45

Discussion Questions: What marketing campaigns will you always remember? What practical tools help you engage and understand the Scriptures? What are the basics of the Gospel every Christian can share?

Food for thought from Mike Glen:

This is the final study in a six-week unit titled “Victory” by pastor Mike Glen of Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood.

Ad agencies live to create that one slogan or campaign that’s remembered for years. For examples:

— Put a tiger in your tank (1960s);
— It’s the real thing (1970s);
— Where’s the beef (1980s);
— Just do it (1990s).

I do my own form of viral marketing because I am a grandfather. I am one of those grandfathers. I try to steer every conversation to the subject of grandchildren. I can’t help it! This news is just too good to keep to myself.

In his Gospel, Luke told one last story about Jesus with His disciples. Jesus reminded His disciples they were witnesses of some incredible events. What Jesus had done is incredibly good news, and like any good news, the story of God’s saving work in Jesus had to be told.

The One Point of this week’s Bible study from Bible Studies For Life is that “The victory we have in Jesus is too big to keep to ourselves.” As we approach the celebration of Easter, may we all find opportunities to share the good news of Jesus with people we’re in contact with daily.
