Description

How can we hold onto assurance of our faith? How can we discern the truth from a lie? How can we know God loves us?

In three short letters, the apostle John reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it. In this 10-session Bible study on the letters of 1, 2, and 3, John, Jen Wilkin helps you see how two thousand years later, John's words remind us to do this as well.

Features:

- Leader helps for group discussion
- Personal study to be completed in-between the group sessions
- Teaching videos, approximately 35–45 minutes, via redemption code printed in the Bible study book

Video Sessions:


- Week One: Introduction | You’ve Got Mail (46:06)—In this introduction to the study, Jen gives background information for John and the original recipients of his letter. She also highlights some of the main themes that will come up time and again.


- Week Two: A Credible Witness (45:50)—Jen’s teaching on 1 John 1:1–2:2 walks us through how John establishes himself as a credible witness to Jesus and gives us practical ways we can be the same for others, as people who know Him.


- Week Three: The Tests of Righteousness and Love (44:06)—As Jen walks through 1 John 2:3-17, she explains John’s first two “tests” that help bring assurance to the sincerity of one’s faith—the tests of righteousness and love.


- Week Four: The Test of Truth, The Call to Abide (37:55)—For week four, Jen covers 1 John 2:18-29, which includes John’s third “test” for assessing one’s faith, the test of truth, which we do by holding everything we are taught by others up against the teachings of God‘s Word.


- Week Five: Practice Righteousness, Pursue Love, Possess Assurance (47:53)—With this week’s teaching of 1 John 2:29–3:24, Jen examines what it means to be a part of God’s family, to be “called children of God.”


- Week Six: Truth and Error; God Is Love (46:02)—In this video, Jen walks viewers verse-by-verse through 1 John 4, which includes John’s encouragement to test what you hear others teach against the truths revealed in God’s Word.


- Week Seven: Overcoming the World (34:32)—The final chapter of 1 John begins with John revisiting the themes that have been central to his letter—the tests of righteousness, love, and truth.


- Week Eight: That You May Know (40:30)—Jen brings her teaching of 1 John to a close with the remaining nine verses of John’s letter, which wrap up with a strong emphasis on knowing that you have eternal life and the encouragement to pray according to the will of God.


- Week Nine: Walk in Truth and Love (49:04)—Jen transitions her teaching to the letter of 2 John, a letter with similar themes to 1 John but originally written for a narrower audience, an individual church.


- Week Ten: Imitate Good (44:47)—In this final week, Jen walks through the epistle of 3 John, a letter John wrote to an individual named Gaius. Jen addresses how this letter is similar to 1 and 2 John in language and themes, and looks for new themes it introduces.
