Christ-Centered Bible Study:
Hearing the Music of the Gospel

8 Lessons Bible Studies

Course Description

In this Course on Christ-centered Bible study, we’ll take a look at how Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, exposes our need for — and points us to — Christ and the “good news” of salvation — aka the “music of the gospel.”

The skills learned in this course are a great start to transforming how you experience the gospel in your life each day through Scripture.

When you read the Bible (Scripture), is your main focus on asking, “What does this teach me that I should be doing?”

As you learn to read the Bible through this new lens, you'll be able to:



Move from a solely behavior-focused reading of Scripture to a transformational one



Reflect on the deeper root issues of your sins



See how passages expose our need for and point us to the redeeming power of Jesus Christ



Live and experience the gospel in a new way
