It’s no secret that young adults today lack solid Biblical knowledge. This is evident throughout culture when people misquote Scripture passages or take Bible verses out of context. When it comes to specific skills that help deepen and sharpen biblical literacy, young adults need all the tools they can get.
So other than just opening the Word and diving in, how can young adults read God’s Word, memorize it, study its context, and apply it to life? These things are precisely what Explore the Bible: Young Adults is set to accomplish with its Bible Skill feature found within each session.
What Is the Bible Skill Feature?
The Bible Skill feature within each session of Explore the Bible: Young Adults will help both young adults and group leaders develop and improve the ways in which they study passages of Scripture. Using this feature within your group study time prompts activity that puts into practice the truths discovered within each verse of the Bible.
Why Is the Bible Skill Feature Significant?
The Bible Skill feature is significant because it introduces young adults to a variety of ways they can dwell in God’s Word. From Old and New Testament passage comparisons to digging deeper into key words to identifying repeated words or phrases, each session offers a new experience that leads the group member and leader toward a deeper understanding of the Bible text.
How Is the Bible Skill Feature Developed for Young Adults?
With the development of each session of Explore the Bible: Young Adults, careful attention and collaboration is given to the Bible Skill feature so that it both engages and equips the ever-transitioning life stage of young adults. The goal for each Bible Skill feature is to challenge young adults and leaders to interact with the Bible text in ways beyond mere reading and answering reflective questions.
As young adults begin to dwell in God’s Word, they will not only see it permeate every part of their lives, but they will develop a stronger desire to obey it and share it with others. The Bible Skill feature of Explore the Bible: Young Adults offers a solution for group leaders to help their members overcome the problem of biblical illiteracy.
