Bible Study

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

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.

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.
