    Commentary by Anne Walls, study questions by Dottie Heseman

    In the book of 1 Corinthians the apostle Paul addresses issues that arose in the church in Corinth and that arise in our churches today. There was division among the believers rather than unity in Christ. Flagrant and unrepented immorality was tolerated…


    …by church members. Many were using the Holy Spirit's gifts to exalt themselves instead of to glorify God. Paul tells us that God's love is the greatest of all His gifts. The other gifts are meaningless unless they are guided by His love expressed through us.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins. Study questions by Kathy Rowland.

    Following 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 Kings continues the history of Israel’s monarchy in light of God’s covenants. During the period of 1 Kings, the kingdom of Israel was divided between Israel in the north and Judah to the south. There were evil rulers such as Ahab and Jezebel…


    …and godly rulers such as Solomon and Jehoshaphat. Many prophets were sent by God to Israel during this period, notably Elijah. In spite of Judah’s failure to serve the Lord wholeheartedly, and of Israel’s kings to serve Him at all, we will see God continue to carry out His covenant plan for His people.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    The book of 1 Samuel covers a period of about 115 years, and is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. The long period of the rule of the judges ended under the prophet Samuel, and royal history began with the anointing of Saul and later David.


    The history and lessons of this book are presented to us in the form of biography of Samuel’s, Saul’s and David’s early years. As with other books of the Bible, 1 Samuel records man’s failure and God’s faithfulness. Within its pages we see God’s long-suffering with those in rebellion against Him, and we see what God can do in and through those who are committed to serving Him.

    Written by Doris W. Greig, revised and updated by Kathy Rowland

    The book of 1 Thessalonians is a letter the apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Thessalonica. During his visit to them sudden persecution arose, and the believers sent him away for his safety…


    …Paul later wrote to these new Christians—who had formerly been pagans—to encourage them in their trials, to instruct them in godly living, to urge some not to neglect daily work, and to give assurance concerning the future of believers who die before Christ returns.

    1-3 John & Jude focuses on the fundamentals of Christianity. It explores the sovereignty of Christ, and how we as Christians should live in the glorious light of His love. These New Testament books also address heretical teachings, and how we must be careful not to step off the path God has shown us.

    Commentary by Anne Walls, study questions by Dottie Heseman

    Known as the “book of encouragement,” 2 Corinthians addresses the purpose of testing in our lives, both by external circumstances and as we test ourselves to see where we stand spiritually…


    …This study also explores the personal history of the apostle Paul—his courage and self-sacrificing love—and reveals how God desires to develop these same attributes in our lives.

    …and godly rulers such as Hezekiah and Josiah. During this period God sent many prophets to His people, notably Elisha and Isaiah. In spite of the downfall and captivity of all Israel by the end of 2 Kings, the future remained open for a new work of the Lord in faithfulness to His promise to the house of David.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    Second Samuel continues the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, with David being acclaimed king in Israel. He makes Jerusalem his royal city and brings the Ark of the Lord there. We see the glory and success of David’s reign, as well as his weaknesses and failures.

    Within the pages of 2 Samuel God uncovers David’s humanity. You will discover that this “man after God’s own heart” (see Acts 13:22) was a sinful human, like us all, who had to depend on God’s mercy and faithfulness.

    Commentary by Ray C. Stedman. Study questions by Kathy Rowland.

    Covers Acts chapters 1-13. In this book we see what Jesus brought about through the apostles' preaching and the beginning of the church. We'll study the life of Paul as he makes many missionary journeys. Though the apostles and early Christians faced bitter persecution,…

    …through the power of the Holy Spirit they successfully carried the gospel from Jerusalem to Rome and planted churches across the Roman Empire. Full of history and drama, the book of Acts provides a guide for the church to follow until Christ returns.
