Out of frustration with a lack of Bible study opportunities in our parishes, and few friends and I have decided to meet online (each of us lives in very different areas of the country at the moment) for a weekly or bi-weekly Bible Study. Currently, we’re considering going through the narrative books of the Old Testament since its an area where all of us feel deficient in knowledge. For those who may have been a part of a similar project (or maybe just have a wealth of good advice), I have a few questions.
*]Does anyone have any suggestions for a study resource for the Old Testament? Unfortunately, because we would each have to independently purchase the item, well respected resources such as “The Great Adventure” are out of the picture.
*]For those who have done a Bible Study online, does anyone have a suggestion for format? Our group is essentially all at the same level in terms of knowledge, so we don’t have a clear leader. Currently we’re trying to figure out how we would structure a meeting; the experience of others would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your input. I look forward to seeing any advice!
