Allison W5 Stars Out Of 5I Recommend This!July 18, 2016Allison WQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Through these lessons, the more I understand the big picture of what Christ was trying to accomplish through miracles, the more I know God, and the more I know God, the closer I am to Him. I recommend this! Our small group really enjoyed this!
Kenneth Berding5 Stars Out Of 5Superb TeachingJuly 15, 2016Kenneth BerdingQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Much teaching that goes by the label "Biblical" is only Biblical in the loosest sense. In contrast, The Miracles of Jesus video series actually does what it claims to do: It guides listeners into deeper connections with the Biblical text. Taught by seasoned scholars and teachers of the New Testament, this series of videos will help you grow in your understanding of God's Word, find faithful applications of the text in life, and come to know Jesus better. I gladly recommend it.
J. Barrett5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Bible study seriesJuly 7, 2016J. BarrettQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Deeper Connections" is an excellent resource for the church or any small group. Matt Williams, the general editor of the series, has gathered together a solid group of scholars who are experts in their fields, but who can also communicate to the church. These include Gary Burge, David Garland, Mark Strauss, Michael Wilkins, and Ben Witherington III.
The first series consists of three dvds - The Prayers of Jesus, The Miracles of Jesus, and The Parables of Jesus - with six Bible studies on each dvd.
The series contains a dvd and participant's guide (both purchased separately). The dvd and guide are designed to follow a three-part pattern: a close look at the original meaning of the biblical text, attention to the historical and cultural background, and an encouraging and challenging application of the text's meaning for today. Thus, each study is broken up into three short segments that take small groups deeper into various texts of the Gospels. Between each of these teaching segments, there is time for group discussion. The dvd is well done, while not being overly flashy or distracting. Jarrett Stevens, the host, introduces each section from a different location in Israel. This may seem insignificant to some, but it truly helps set the scene and context as each location is relevant to the text that will be discussed on the dvd.
So far my small group has gone through the first three studies and it has produced a lot of valuable and fruitful conversations. The dvd teachers have all shown a great balance of challenging us to understand the texts and applying them to our lives. The dvd allows room for discussion, and the participants guide is clear and practical as it helps initiate conversations with relevant and challenging questions. My initial expectation was that I wouldn't learn much from these Bible studies. I was wrong. I have not only learned more about what Scripture means, but I have grown from the challenges and applications presented from each teacher on the dvd. The participant's guide also has a section for five days of personal reflection that centers on the text that was just studied.
Overall, Deeper Connections is a great Bible study series that challenges both our hearts and our minds and seeks to deepen our relationship with Jesus. It has definitely risen above my expectations. Whereas I have often felt like other Bible studies (not all) try to transform lives through good concepts with a Bible quote here or there, this series is solely founded and firmly based on Scripture. As it stands, my small group plans on purchasing the other two dvd studies.
Pat5 Stars Out Of 5Exceptional Study!July 7, 2016PatQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Miracles of Jesus study was exceptional! It was a wonderful combination of Bible scholars, each providing a study of the meaning and impact of a different miracle Jesus performed during his time on earth. The depth of knowledge of each of the teachers was clearly evident and insightful, and having them teach from different real world locations provided an interesting backdrop to what they were sharing. The consistency of having Jarrett Stevens provide an introduction to each study was helpful, and the historical and cultural information he shared in each segment from different locations in the Holy Land was very interesting, as well as educational, and provided a nice tie in to each specific study. The study guide held excellent questions that prompted meaningful conversations within our group which led us to a deeper understanding of each teaching. I would highly recommend this study to any group seeking to gain a better understanding of the meaning and impact of the miracles of Jesus.
