Understanding His story helps us to understand that His-Story is our Story!
Bible Literacy! One of the goals of every believer should be to be able to tell people the story of the Word of God! Story? The Word of God is a true story! It is History (HIS-story). The Scriptures divide nicely into 14 Eras. Once you know and memorize the 14 Eras you can tell the story. God's Story! This method of Bible study and teaching was developed by Dr. Stan & Iva May. You can gain access to materials, devotionals and greater understanding about this method of learning/teaching God's word at www.chronologicalbibleteaching.com . As a Pastor, it is the best thing I have implemented at any church in my 40 years of ministry.
Below are Bible studies I have written as I journeyed through the Bible chronologically. Please feel free to use them or teach them to others. They are free but I would like to say something I once heard Dr. Adrian Rogers say when I was younger: he said, "Boys, I have milked the cow for you! You need to churn your own butter!" Develop your own studies. Of course that should be the goal of any good teacher or preacher! But it should also be the goal of EVERY DISCIPLE OF CHRIST! Students that study the Word of God as God intended! By putting it into your heart. Please feel free to print them and use them to teach others. May God bless you and yours! -Michael.
