Bible Study Fellowship’s Study for 2018/2019 is People of the Promised Land.
This study is divided up into two divisions: Part 1 will cover from Joshua to Solomon and Part 2 will cover Israel when it’s divided up into two kingdoms and the minor prophets. This study used to be one study and is now being broken up into two years for the first time.
Part 1 for this year will cover: the books of Joshua, Ruth, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 Kings 1-11 and overviews of Psalms and Proverbs.
BSF has a great breakdown on their website HERE
After Moses dies, Joshua is hand-picked by God to lead His chosen people into the Promised Land “be strong and courageous because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them” (Joshua 1:6).
Then we will study the Judges, Ruth, Samuel, Saul, David, and Solomon.
Unfortunately, I believe you will have to wait 3 years to study Part 2 as BSF is sticking with mixing up their Old Testament and New Testament studies. Part 2 is scheduled to debut in 2021 after Acts and Genesis again. This is unfortunate as chronological order just makes sense to me. Furthermore, many of us have already done Acts and Genesis (including myself).
This is an area schools never touch on so bring the kiddos!
Most of this will be new as well since most churches don’t preach this (unless it’s Ruth or David) and then it’s only the exciting parts and familiar stories. I’ve read all of this but it’s been years and I’m thoroughly looking forward to it!
