The Bible Study and lessons are posted here in pdf format.
These can be printed and used at home or when you are out and want to catch up.

This quick series can be covered in three weeks or spread out over up to six weeks by dividing each lesson in half. Taking a look at what Jesus said about making decisions and applying them to our lives this series is designed to challenge the thinking of the individual on a daily basis.

Lesson One Personal Choices
Lesson Two Higher Standards
Lesson Three Daily Sturggles
BONUS Settling Matters


This updated study is designed to show the progression of change in the USA from a nation of established values and laws to a nation functioning without values and with ever changing laws. Understanding the different values used in the society by various groups helps to understand the different decisions and approaches each group takes. Pre-Modernism has a strong belief and reliance on GOD and His directions. Modernism has a strong belief system based not on God but on SCIENCE and KNOWLEDGE. The Post-Modernism society has a strong abstract belief system based on personal FEELINGS and personal SATISFACTION. This study shows the transition that has taken place and continues to take place in this society.

The Book of Hebrews is filled with truth and depth of spiritual truth. It is often dissected into such small parts its overall purpose is lost. This study starts with the grand overview and a focus on its one key point. From there it will progress to looking at the various parts and teachings that make up the book. A key goal is to show how this book written to Jewish believers 30 years after the resurrection of Jesus can be applied to the lives of believers in the 21st Century. 

Book of Hebrews Overview Chart: This chart shows the flow of the book and the major themes. There is both a filled in chart and one that has blanks. It is in a large PDF file. It would need to be scaled to be printed.

There is no consistent or agreed on outline for the book. This is my chart and is based on the belief the book was written with one key purpose. The Jewish believers were starting to drift back toward Judaism and away from their relationship with Jesus. The writer of Hebrews set out to warn them of the danger of leaving Jesus. He does this by showing over and over that Jesus is superior to each of the key foundations of the Jewish faith system.

Modern believers need to be aware that their own cultural foundation can and is often allowed to slip into their belief system and relationship with Jesus. Many modern believers and churches are in danger of needing to heed the warnings issued to the Hebrews or find themselves outside of God's will. Hebrews should speak to us on an individual basis as well as to our local churches.

The following study guide was developed to show the changing society and to help the believer understand many of the changes that are happening and being forced on the church. It is designed to be used as a discussion guide. The three world views are outlined in an overview of each one. These are also compared to the generational changes that have occurred since 1900 through the current generation Z or generation 'zombie' in honor of one of their favorite shows the Walking Dead.
