2020 Group Studies


We don’t often speak about suffering and difficulties in detail in our Christian tradition. It is not a nice topic. There are no easy answers.
Even the answers we have do not fully satisfy. But there are answers, and more than answers, God has actually experienced many of the sufferings and pains we’ve come to know in our lives. It seems Jesus even asked similar questions in the Garden of Gethsemane, saying “Lord if there’s any other way…” In this study we’ll look at the questions of suffering and grief and consider what scripture says about our darkest times.


Have you ever questioned someone else’s interpretation of a Bible passage? Do you have the desire to probe deeper into the meaning of Scripture? Want to get to know the Biblical writers and understand why they wrote what they wrote? If so, it’s time to learn exegesis. This study will simply introduce the art of exegesis in such a way that, hopefully, spurs you on to dig deeper into Scripture and its background. Prepare to be challenged.
