This beta study has already been field-tested at the University of Nebraska at Omaha with Greeks. Students (both Christian and non-Christian) say that it has really helped them to understand the story of the bible and specifically helped them to understand the person and work of Jesus.
WHEN would I use this?
INTEGRATE INTO YOUR MOVEMENT: You could do this 4-week study at the beginning of the year (or semester) to give your students a “big picture” of the bible story. Then you can transition into a bible study or whatever else you have planned for the year.
LAUNCH A GREEK MOVEMENT: If you have no current Greek ministry, you could advertise this 4-week Dialogue on facebook or put flyers up in Greek Houses and do this study to create momentum.
WHAT have students been saying?
“They never taught me this stuff in high school [religion class]! They made us memorize things that didn’t really matter...”
“I’ve never read the bible. This has really made me think.”
“I used to think that the bible was made up a past stories that didn’t really matter. This has shown me that the bible really relates to my life.”
