What Love Is dives in deep with 1, 2, & 3 John, helping us to know both the beloved disciple and our Savior more intimately. We think this message is perfect for anyone wanting an in-depth look at how to live as a Christian and wanting to learn Jesus’ definition of love. The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus.
Here’s how the online study works:
- Purchase a copy of the What Love Is Bible study book here or get an ebook version here or head down to your local LifeWay store to get a copy.
- Return to the blog each week to watch a video of Kelly as she walks us through the three letters of 1, 2, & 3 John.
- Participate by answering questions in the comments.
We’d love for you to gather a group from your church, your neighborhood, your school, or your workplace to do the study together. We believe that Bible study is more effective (and more fun!) in community. If you cannot find a group in your area, that’s OK! Join us here and answer the questions in the comments. You’ll still get a lot out of it, and you just might make some new friends!
A note about the Bible study videos: What Love Is is a video-based Bible study, so there are videos available for purchase at your LifeWay Store and online (for group or individual use) and also through the purchase of a Leader Kit. These videos are not the same as the free videos available here on the blog. The videos for purchase are longer (around 30 minutes each) and dive deeper into the topic of each session. They are the videos that go with the viewer guides in the Bible study book. We recommend them if you want to hear more of Kelly’s teaching and learn even more about the books of 1, 2, & 3 John.
If you are just now joining us, don’t worry. We will leave these posts up for you to start when you’re ready!
