The Sovereignty of God
This fall, Daily Bible Study presents a series of readings following the theme "The Sovereignty of God." Readings come from Old and New Testament texts. These daily readings, which prepare us for the 13 lessons in Adult Bible Studies, are written by Chris Momany, Michelle Morris, and Simon Iredale.
The Sovereignty of God
Daily readings in this four-week unit develop the biblical images of the peaceful kingdom, the mountain of God, foundations of the earth, and everlasting covenant.
The Sovereignty of Jesus
This five-week unit features readings that look at Jesus as the imprint of God, the builder of the house, the great high priest, the high priest forever, and the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.
Alpha and Omega
The daily readings in this four-week unit explore how, within the sovereignty of God, everything is brand new; what the New Jerusalem entails; how God brings life and healing; and what it means that Jesus is the Alpha and Omega.
This ongoing day-by-day Bible study series is presented in quarterly segments. Bible-based, Christ-focused, and United Methodist-approved, this resource helps individuals develop the discipline of studying the Bible every day. It coordinates with the lesson themes of Adult Bible Studies. Each lesson includes: a one-page Bible study for each day of the quarter, along with introductory reflection questions and Commentary on the daily Scripture passage, Life Application, and a concluding prayer. Available in print and eBook format.
