Bible Study

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

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.

Ever feel like you are all alone, venturing into unchartered territories? As Christian graduate students, faculty, university staff/administrators, and campus ministers, university life is challenging. Lauri Swann offers scripture, prayer, and testimony of God's provision for us in this three-part series from Scholar's Compass, a devotional series from the Emerging Scholars Network:

​ May God use Lauri's words to encourage and bolster your faith to hear his voice and obey.

The practice of spiritual disciplines enriches our understanding of God, deepens our obedience, and increases our longing for God. Many faculty members deeply desire to follow Christ in the academic world. May this guide beckon you to establish a regular rhythm of seeking and finding God.

This piece was initially featured in the December 2012 edition of the Lamp Post, the email newsletter of InterVarsity Faculty Ministry. Thomas Trevethan examines our inclination toward and intention in using Scripture. Are we using it to advance our own agendas or are we applying God's living word to our own lives to seek and do the will of God?
