Biblical Literacy - 2017

Year of Biblical Literacy

For 2017, we invite you to a Year of Biblical Literacy ~ a collaborative initiative to immerse ourselves in Scripture to better understand and experience the presence, character, and way of Jesus.


OPEN GOD'S WORD

The Word of God alone has the power to radically transform, save, instruct, challenge & equip us for life.  2 Timothy 3:15-16 explains that the Scriptures make us “wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

While general literacy has increased, biblical literacy has diminished in our time & place.  Often our most educated cultural leaders & innovators are clueless as to the timeless truths revealed through Scripture.  In an effort to encourage the Reality community towards spiritual fruitfulness, theological clarity, cultural modesty & missional fervency ~ 2017 is our Year of Biblical Literacy.  

Below you will find Reading Plans, Discussion Guides and Media resources, including the captivating and beautiful video series by Read Scripture. Find some friends or family to participate in this journey of discovery.


WATCH 
The Bible is a profound and prophetic book that tells one complete story from beginning to end. It is also a very long book written out of chronological order, which can make it confusing and intimidating. The Bible Project is all about exploring the entire biblical narrative by breaking it up into short animated videos that help you understand the structure and themes of the Bible.  See the Intro below for a good overview:
