THE BIG PICTURE
The men we’re going to read about this weekend are fairly popular in the world of religion. They’re known in Christianity, but also Judaism and even Islam. When we read about these men, we do an injustice to the original authors and the Holy Spirit to simply gloss over them. Much of what is written about them is for us to hold them up and causes us to see ourselves in them. How are we flawed like these men? How are we obedient like them? What can we learn from them and their choices?
HOW TO USE THIS:
There are two main sections in Session 2. The Call and The Test. We use these two themes to help us understand each character better. My roll will be to help bring cohesion to the three men we're learning about, but also to the over-arching theme for the weekend of being faithful to God.
