Pastor's Bible Study - The Chosen Bible Study
This will be a 16 week study November through January
Being chosen by Jesus has beautiful and far-reaching implications—although it says even more about the Chooser than the choosees. We are loved because Jesus is love. We are saved because Jesus is merciful. We belong to the family of God because Jesus invites us, making the Bible and all its promises as true for us today as it was for God’s chosen nation.
Come join Pastor Kim and John as we watch The Chosen, the groundbreaking television series about the life of Jesus, directed by Dallas Jenkins. Each week we will watch an episode and then move into a discussion of the episode with the companion bible study book, What Does it Mean to Be Chosen. If you would like to purchase the companion study take the link to https://www.amazon.com/What-Does-Mean-Chosen-Interactive/dp/0830782680. There you can order a book or download a copy on your Kindle.
