Bible Study

For InterVarsity staff, there are additional resources available by logging into the website here.

We’re all moving toward the unknown this fall. We don’t know what to expect, or even how to imagine what things will be like. It’s a critical moment when we can choose to follow Jesus on the journey, to walk by faith instead of sight. This collection of readings from the Emerging Scholars Network blog is designed to help you do that together. Built in are study questions, prayer ideas, and optional spiritual activities for groups meeting online or in socially distanced ways.

Whether you just started graduate school or are almost finished, our weekly fall readings are designed to help you journey forward with a strong sense of calling to God’s work in the university. Read and discuss with a small group, or reflect on your own. Click here to go to the readings on the Emerging Scholars Blog.

The ESN blog has partnered with Emerging Scholars as writers of content for and by graduate students and faculty. The material these writers have shared with the Emerging Scholars Network has been such an encouragement. Hannah Eagleson, the Interim Director of ESN, wanted to collect some of the best resources for your reference as you plan events for your chapter, fellowship, small group, or prayer meetings. We are so grateful to the ESN Blog writers for these contributions.

This discussion guide is the main resource for study of the text of I Peter. Often there are more questions than could be well addressed in a single small group gathering, so you will need to make some choices about what to include for your meeting. You could spend more than one meeting on a given section of I Peter as well.

This is the second study in a series of six designed for law students by the Christian Legal Society. They are structured so that they can be considered in a short twenty-minute session or become the basis for an hour-long discussion.

These Bible study briefs are deliberately informal. They are structured so that they can be considered in a short twenty-minute session or become the basis for an hour-long discussion. This is study brief three in a series of six.

This is the fourth study in the Bible study briefs. These studies are intended to provide you with accessible, usable, and brief Bible studies on topics that touch on the peculiar needs, problems, and dilemmas that confront Christians in the legal profession.

The purpose of this study is to examine the tort law that God gave to Moses for the Israelite society. We will use the case laws in Exodus to examine our own thinking about the goals of our system of tort law. I recommend spending two weeks on this study if the group finds it interesting.

The purpose of this study is to examine principles of punishment with an eye toward thinking through some fundamental principles of the criminal law. This is, again, good practice as you get into the habit of evaluating the law by biblical principles.
