Beginning with Jesus Bible Study (International Students)
Beginning with Jesus is a four-study guide for international students and scholars. This guide includes Bible text, discussion questions, vocabulary helps, background information, a map, and leader’s notes.
As we work through these four studies, we will be introduced to Jesus as well as to Bible study methods.
The Gospel According to Mark introduces us to Jesus and lays a foundation for Christian life and action. As you get to know Jesus better, you are encouraged to trust him and follow him.
We use an English translation of the Bible called the New International Version (NIV). The NIV was translated from the original languages by an international team of more than one hundred scholars.
