No matter where you are in the Bible right now, it’s always a good time to return to the second half of Scripture—the New Testament, where we see the promise of God’s fulfillment in Christ.
Chances are you’re familiar with the more popular New Testament books, but have you studied the Book of Jude in depth? How about Philippians? Or Hebrews? Because there’s so much territory to explore, we’ve rounded up 9 studies for you to choose from this fall (or any time you need an extra dose of Jesus’ words).
Better by Jen Wilkin | 10 Sessions
In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.
Jude by Jackie Hill Perry | 7 Sessions
While often overlooked, the Book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.
In this 7-session study from Jackie Hill Perry, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.
All Things New by Kelly Minter | 8 Sessions
Study the Book of 2 Corinthians to discover how God can use you no matter your cultural setting. By exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay and meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, you’ll gain wisdom for relationships to strengthen your church and community. And you’ll leave your old self behind as you celebrate the new life of a believer.
TruthFilled by Ruth Chou Simons | 7 Sessions
Join Ruth Chou Simons in this 7-session study as she guides you through the Book of Colossians and a pattern of being filled up with the truth of God’s Word. Learn what it means, how to preach truth to your own heart, and how doing so can help shape your thought patterns, identity, and actions. There’s no shortage of self help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.
We Over Me by Whitney Capps | 9 Sessions
It’s easy to get frustrated with the local church—we see the people in the pews up close, both their beauty and blemishes. But God has a purpose and a plan that He uniquely accomplishes in and through the church, and He wants you to be part of it.
In the opening 3 chapters of Revelation, we find a wake-up call directed toward 7 churches and discover the truth of God’s desire for the church. Over 9 sessions, challenge your perspective and embrace your part in helping the church fulfill its calling.
What Matters Most by Karen Ehman | 7 Sessions
The world has always been full of trials, disappointments, temptations, fractured friendships, and financial hardships. Yet Paul’s Letter to the Philippians claims we can discover contentment and joy in the midst of it all by prioritizing what matters most—Christ.
Over 7 sessions, study the ever-relevant Letter of Philippians to deepen your relationship with Jesus, turn your worries into worship, and develop gospel-centered tools for navigating relational conflict.
Entrusted by Beth Moore | 6 Sessions
In this 6-session study, Beth Moore will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing His love with others, and mentor younger generations of women just as Paul discipled Timothy.
This is a particularly good choice for leaders studying together as the Letter of 2 Timothy will encourage women to continue in ministry despite hardships.
The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer | 7 Sessions
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you—unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.
But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan found in Ephesians 6 for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst | 6 Sessions
What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.
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 interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.
