Overview

The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by a world-class set of research and study tools. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Individual Titles

Numbers: A 12-Week Study

  • Author: Michael LeFebvre
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The book of Numbers follows two generations of God’s people: the first forced to wander in the desert for 40 years because of their lack of faith, and the second given the blessing of entering the Promised Land because of their obedience.

Showing how the book of Numbers displays the steadfast faithfulness of God, Michael LeFebvre helps readers learn from the failures of past generations in order to pursue faithfulness today.

1–2 Samuel: A 12-Week Study

  • Author: Ryan Kelly
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The books of 1–2 Samuel show God’s continued care for his people in providing them with a king and establishing a center of worship for Israel. Through the transfer of power from Samuel to Saul to David, God reveals his providential guidance.

Walking readers through these important books chronicling the history of ancient Israel, this study guide points to God’s power, control, patience, salvation, and righteous judgment as he brings about his purposes in surprising and seemingly upside-down ways.

1–2 Chronicles: A 12-Week Study

  • Author: James Duguid
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles were written to unify the people of Israel around the true worship of God. After the trauma of exile and facing political opposition in their return to the land, they needed to know that God would prove gracious to those who repent of their sin.

This accessible study walks readers through these two Old Testament books over the course of 12 weeks, pointing them to God’s mercy, compassion, and forgiveness—and his promise to bless his people by dwelling with them forever.

  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The book of Song of Solomon recounts the romantic love between a young man and a young woman, written in the form of poems. The depiction of marriage in this book—characterized by beauty, passion, difficulty, and commitment—offers modern readers a divine perspective on human love.

This 12-week study highlights the practical wisdom embedded in this poem and its place in the larger biblical story, reflecting God’s love toward his people and offering a much-needed message for our world today.

  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The books of Joel, Amos, and Obadiah are revelations from God spoken through his prophets, calling his chosen people to repent and return to him. Even though God promises judgment for their unfaithfulness, he also offers hope of restoration in the Promised Land and reconciliation to him as their Lord.

This 12-week study helps readers see how the justice and mercy of God lead to the hope of glorious salvation, as we wait for the day when Jesus returns to free us from our enemies and our sin and establish his rule over all the nations.

Jonah, Micah, and Nahum: A 12-Week Study

  • Author: Kristofer D. Holroyd
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The books of Jonah, Micah, and Nahum announce the judgment of God through his prophets—flawed messengers who nevertheless served as vehicles for God’s compassion, calling their hearers to repent of their evil, turn from their false gods, and worship the one true God.

Over the course of 12 weeks, this study helps readers see the steadfast love, mercy, and patience of the Lord, the deliverer and protector who offers forgiveness to all who turn from their sin and trust in him.

  • Author: Stephen M. Coleman
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The books of Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi contain messages to God’s people who, after experiencing deliverance from exile, still struggled with doubt, discouragement, and despair in the Promised Land. The prophets called them to faith as they awaited an even greater deliverance yet to come.

Through this 12-week study, readers will see the faithfulness of God as he restores his presence among his people through the temple—a foretaste of the promised Messiah, who is the true temple and ultimate fulfillment of God’s promises.

  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 96

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The books of 1–3 John are full of practical wisdom for the Christian life. John wanted his readers to understand that as they grew in their understanding of their identity as children of God, they ought to grow in love for one another and in obedience to God’s commands.

Over the course of 12 weeks, this study helps us see what it looks like to truly love and follow Jesus in a world that “is passing away along with its desires”—a transformed life that comes through knowing the love of God in Jesus Christ.
