Course Description

Our Vision

Reveal the timeless truths unfolding from the Bible’s pages.

Our Aim

Through a unique blend of Bible study, performance, Biblical scholarship, discussion and personal reflection, we aim to present relevant historical background, provide understanding, offer emotional connection, and encouragement to live out the timeless truths of scripture.

Our Approach

We've designed each character study to begin with historical background for the character, then a basic Bible study for you to do, so you can see for yourself what the text actually says.

Then we'll show you an artistic concept--a performance--of that character, along with life application questions.

The final piece is a lecture, wrapping up the study, and offering some thoughts on how to live out the wisdom you've gained.

Each segment of the study includes a 10 to 20 minute video, with a written character study sheet, and a written Bible study sheet, which you can spend as much, or as little, time on as you would like.

Our Hope

This study is designed for those new to the Bible, and for those who would like a more experiential approach to Bible study.

Who this course is for:

  • If you are new to the Bible, or would like to have a more experiential approach to Bible study, this course is for you. Though we seek to have good scholarship, this is not a primarily intellectual approach.

Expected Outcomes

  1. Have a deeper understanding of biblical characters' life stories, and how to live out their wisdom. Requirements Students will need to have access to a Bible, either hard copy, or online.

When she received her own Bible at church in 1970, she read the whole book, from preface to concordance, with transcendent joy, knowing these were the very words of God.
