I'M in... SEARCH FOR A BOOK OF YOUR CHOICE

Choose any book that you want to learn more about and sit in that book for however long you like - a week, a month.  Dive in deep, or meditate on a scripture or revelation - if you let it sink in, you'll find that you're mindset will start to change, and it will change your life.  You can start searching for a book here

INTRODUCTION TO THE TYB SCHEDULE

Understanding the historical context of the Bible, gives us a window into what the different books are about and takes us to a deeper level in journeying the Bible.  Imagine this, God standing at the beginning of time trying to work out the best time to send his Son. His coming is going to change the world, it is going to be the pinnacle to which all time will be set. He closes his eyes spins around a couple of times and sticks his finger on the timeline of history. Opening his eyes he looks at the time that was chosen and says ‘That’ll do!” No!!! God chose a specific time, place and culture to send his Son and as followers of Christ, it is really important to know where and what that was. It gives us a better understanding of Jesus, the Bible as a whole and stops us from assuming our culture into the Bible.
