Wednesdays at Good Shepherd

John for Everyone:  
A Study of the Gospel of John by N.T. Wright
Wednesdays in Dobbins Hall Adult Classroom
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

We encourage everyone of all ages to come to this new Bible Study on Wednesday evenings. Make this your New Year’s Resolution. Bible Studies do not have to be intimidating…this one will not be. This will be a place to come that is casual and comfortable. You do not have to come with any prior knowledge. If you are a parent, this will better equip you to guide your children, no matter the age, through their spiritual growth. The gospel of John is a great place to start if you have never done a Bible Study, and it is a wonderful reminder of the beauty of John’s writing if you are studying the book again. Either way, this study based on the study series by N.T Wright will help you understand the word of God and further develop your relationship with Jesus.
N. T. Wright is a leading British New Testament scholar and retired Anglican bishop. He is the author of over 70 books and is a well-respected scholar and theologian. This series is designed to provide thoughtful questions, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information to guide us more deeply into God’s word.
