Read, Mark, Learn is a series of small group Bible studies that aims to equip people both to study God's word for themselves and to be able to teach it to others. Its goal is that people should know God and His purposes better and in this way know His purpose for their lives.
Books of the Bible are studied in their entirety, in the belief that as God's word is taught in context, so His voice is heard. This particular course is made up of 30 studies from John's Gospel, and provides notes for group leaders to base their studies on.
Each study provides notes on:
- the context, structure and aim of the passage
- Old Testament background
- the meaning of each part of the text, with key themes highlighted
- practical applications
- suggested questions for leading a study
A separate section at the back of the book contains questions that can be photocopied for group members to prepare in advance, so that they are equipped to make the most of each study.
Read, Mark, Learn has been developed over a number of years by one of London's leading churches, St Helen's, Bishopsgate, and is use by numerous churches nationally and internationally.
