Discovery Place - Lent is right around the corner

As you bask in the glow and peace of the Christmas season, don’t forget that Lent is right around the corner. January is not too soon to begin planning your Lenten Bible studies. Here are some of the Lenten studies available from Discovery Place:

John: The Gospel of Light and Life:  Join Adam Hamilton this Lent and Easter in exploring the major themes of the Gospel of John, the most deeply spiritual of the four Gospels. In this six session study, you’ll follow the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus and understand the context of some of the best-known verses of the New Testament.

Final Words From The Cross: In this inspiring study, Adam Hamilton examines Christ’s dying hours and his final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross.

A Place At The Table: 40 Days of Solidarity With The Poor: In a culture built on consumption--especially of food--it is easy to forget the poor that Jesus cared so much about. We get caught up in acquiring, buying, getting, eating. Author Chris Seay is giving you a challenge--eat like the poor for 40 days and donate the money you save on groceries to a charity or project that serves the poor in concrete ways.

The God We Can Know: Exploring The I Am Sayings of Jesus: In this 7-session study, Rob Fuquay explores the “I am” statements of Jesus. The DVD, filmed on location in the Holy Land, allows us to travel with Rob and actually see the places where Jesus stood while disclosing his identity, and in what context he spoke each “I Am” statement.

24 Hours That Changed The World: No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. In this study, Adam Hamilton guides us through the last twenty-four hours of Jesus’ life.

Resurrection: Did It Happen? What Could It Mean?: The most startling claim of Christianity is that Jesus rose from the dead after being brutally executed on a Roman cross two thousand years ago. Could it possibly be true? And if it were, what difference could it make to us today?

The Last Days of Jesus: Deeper Connections Series: This study invites us to see the behind-the-scenes truth of the main events of Jesus’ death—so that his death can affect our lives today, right where we live, in the midst of our weaknesses and failures.

Prophecies of the Passion: The Old Testament prophets looked centuries into the future and described the final days of Christ’s life on earth. Their visions were fulfilled in remarkable detail, revealing the true identity of the Messiah—the Savior of the world.
