Cover to Cover Bible DTS
Do YOU want to go deeper into the Scriptures, reading the Bible COVER TO COVER and developing a love for the Word???
Statistics show less than 20% of Christians read the Bible daily. However, the Bible is ESSENTIAL for knowing God and His will for our lives.
2 Timothy 3:16–17 explains that God’s Word was given to teach us, admonish us, correct us, and instruct us in righteousness; it was also given so that we may be COMPLETE and EQUIPPED for every good work!
Reading the Bible on a structured and consistent basis, gives you more than knowledge of God, you get to know Him PERSONALLY, find your DIRECTION in life, and learn how to best SERVE Him. Joshua 1:8 tells us "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Furthermore, reading through the entire Bible provides an opportunity to better understand Scripture’s “BIG PICTURE.”
During the 5 months of DTS you will go through the Bible 3 times - cover to cover, chronologically, and then audibly, as you listen to an audio version of the Bible.
The Cover to Cover BIBLE DTS is designed to help you:
◦ Know God
◦ Know God’s Word
◦ Know God’s Will
The first 12 weeks you will receive powerful teaching from different speakers, to provoke, challenge and ENCOURAGE. Topics like hearing the voice of God, identity, sin and forgiveness, and much more are discussed.
In addition, you will have a weekly stream time, where you will learn more about key aspects of the Bible and important teachings, such how we can know the Bible is true, the tabernacle of Moses, the feasts of the Lord and more. See the CURRICULUM tab for the stream outline.
The next 8 weeks you will have the chance to apply the principles you learned during your lectures. Putting into action that which you have experienced in your own life by sharing the love of God and His truth with others, while travelling to another nation!
Outreach Phase is your opportunity to see the power of God, and His Word CHANGE and IMPACT the lost!
Jeremiah 15:16 - “Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts.”
Each student will receive both an English Super Giant Print Bible and a Chronological Bible. For using the audio Bible, you will need either a laptop or smart phone.
IMPORTANT: This DTS will require a commitment to reading the Bible for at least an hour every morning, and learning a scripture by heart each week. See CURRICULUM tab for an example of the weekly schedule.
