In recent years, movie goers have been taken back oi the beginnings of nearly every modern action hero-Batman, Spier-Man, James Bond and Iron Man (and company), just to name a few. Our fascination with these heroes' origins are a reflection of our longing to know where we came from and why we are the way we are.
With Uncommon: The Old Testament, you can share with the teens in your group their own origin story and help them make sense of their world and themselves. These 12-sessions of youth friendly Bible Study will introduce your students to the God who keeps his promises, works miracles and forgives his people when they make terrible choices, and help them understand the physical and spiritual history of our human family. And when they meet Adam and Eve, Samuel and Job, Esther, Daniel and many more biblical characters, your students will get to know the real heroes of the faith. Plus, you can download reproducible student handouts for every session-find out how inside!

The Old Testament is so much more than an old book filled with funny names and endless rules about sacrificesits where we first get to know the God who keeps His promises, works miracles and forgives His people when they make poor choices. With Uncommon: The Old Testament, developed by youth ministry veteran Jim Burns, youth leaders can introduce their teens to key events and characters from the Hebrew Bible. Students will learn to see Gods Word as an exciting drama that finds its completion in Jesus Christ.
Through 12 flexible sessions of study that can be adapted for groups of any size, teens will learn how to listen to Gods voice, what it takes to stand up for Gods people, where to go when the going gets tough, and much more. Plus, the action-packed, fun activities and indispensable tips for starting meaningful dialogue will equip leaders to tell the old, old story in a fresh and vital way.
