Product Description

Based on the Uniform Series, Adult Bible Studies is a quarterly study that explores the biblical message and how to apply it to daily life. The curriculum helps adults move from a focus on the Word to reflection on personal, family, church, and community concerns. Lessons are Bible-based, Christ-focused, and United Methodist - approved curriculum for use in adult Sunday school classes, mid-week Bible study, and small-group studies.

This fall, Adult Bible Study presents a series of readings following the theme "The Christian Community Comes Alive." Readings come primarily from the Book of Acts and focus on the beginnings of the Christian church; the boldness with which Jesus' followers testified to their faith; and the ways the gospel spread among the Jews and then the Gentiles.

Publisher's Description

The Christian Community Comes Alive
This fall, lessons in ADULT BIBLE STUDIES Teacher follow the theme, "The Christian Community Comes Alive." The student book writer is Bill Carter; Tim Bryan is the writer for the teacher book.

Unit 1
Seeds of New Growth
The quarter’s first four lessons follow the early Christians as they, guided by the Holy Spirit, formed a faith community, prayed with boldness, shared their possessions, witnessed to the truth of Jesus Christ, and stood firm in the face of opposition.

  • Praying for One Another (Acts 4:23-31)
  • Sharing All Things (Acts 4:34–5:10)
  • Witnessing to the Truth (Acts 5:27-29, 33-42)
  • Remembering God's Faithfulness (Acts 7:2-4, 8-10, 17, 33-34, 45-47, 53)

Unit 2
Giving Bold Testimony
The four lessons in this unit continue to follow the development of the early church as Jesus’ followers proclaimed the source of true power, preached and taught faithfully about Jesus, earned the right to be heard, took risks for the sake of the gospel, and trusted God’s Spirit to lead and empower them.

  • The Spirit Is Not for Sale (Acts 8:9-24)
  • Saul Earns Credibility (Acts 9:19-31)
  • Peter Takes a Risk (Acts 10:24-38)
  • Trusting the Spirit (Acts 11:1-18)

Unit 3
Spreading the Gospel
The five lessons that conclude this quarter’s study recall Peter’s deliverance from prison; the appearance of Paul and Barnabas before the Jerusalem Council; the spread of the gospel from Derbe to Philippi, then to Thessalonica, Beroea, and Athens; and Paul’s visits to Corinth, Syria, and Ephesus.

  • God Rescues Peter (Acts 12:1-11)
  • God Makes No Distinction (Acts 15:1-12)
  • From Derbe to Philippi (Acts 16:1-5, 8-15)
  • Thessalonica, Beroea, and Athens (Acts 17:1-4, 10-12, 22-25, 28)
  • Teaching God's Word (Acts 18:1-11, 18-21)
