We can’t imagine a better way to spend the next year than studying the life of Jesus, so here is our plan for how you can do just that! These four Bible studies will give you a better picture of who Jesus is and how we should live differently because of it. Here’s our roundup of resources that will help you spend a year with Jesus:
Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst | 6 Sessions
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this in-depth study, you will learn to trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
Jesus and Women by Kristi McLelland | 7 Sessions
Join biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland on the dusty roads of Galilee as she transports you back to Jesus’s world, stepping into the footsteps of the women who came face to face with the living God. Over 7 sessions, you’ll examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply but also to fuel your worship of Him today.
Navigating Gospel Truth by Rebecca McLaughlin | 8 Sessions
The Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—are four accounts of one extraordinary life. While exploring the Gospels, your confidence in the truth of Scripture will be renewed and you’ll gain a more captivating view of the Savior.
Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin | 9 Sessions
In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right—a study on blessedness; a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer; a discussion of religious devotion, money, ambition, and relationships.
This 9-session study will give you the opportunity to do just that. Come and learn from Jesus, just as His disciples did. First released in 2014, this study is now updated with new teaching videos from Jen Wilkin.
If you try any of these studies in 2024, we’d love to hear about it. Tag @lifewaywomen on Instagram and let us know what you’re studying! You never know who you’ll encourage to spend a year with Jesus, too!
