Kingdom of God
in 13 Weeks
The Kingdom of God: Introduction to Using this Study Guide
Guide Yourself thru the Kingdom of God in 13 Hours covers a matrix through which you can view the writings of the New Testament. You can study the Kingdom of God completely in just 13 Hours. Of course, you can take longer, say 13 Days or 13 Weeks by just spending as little as one hour a day or one hour a week. The one hour time period does not include the study of any BibleHandbook readings.
In order to get the most from your study it is important that you read the biblical text along with it. The International Standard Version (ISV) is the text on which the studies are built. The NIV is used for the Old Testament passages and will be marked as such because the Old Testament has not been completely translated into the International Standard Version.However, you may use any version of Scripture that you wish.
The first section of each study is called Observing the Stuff which is an introduction of the section which is being studied. Next, you will encounter Interpreting the Stuff which takes you through the section under study. Finally, there is Doin the Stuff which is the application section. This final area provides you with some beginning thoughts about how to apply to your life what you are studying . After all, the study of Scripture is for spiritual growth, not accumulation of knowledge. Of course, the Holy Spirit is the final word for application to your life. Listen to what he may be saying to you personally about what you are studying. But, dont get application for you mixed up with the meaning of the a text in Scripture. Remember this easy rule of thumb: one meaning, many applications.
Each weekly study may include some of the following icons and sections:
