"It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me."

Jesus (John 6:45)

The Jesus Strategy

Where to Begin? 

Begin with an introduction to the Bible, unless everyone in the group is a seasoned Bible student. In most areas of the world, we then move directly to Discovering God - Traditional (2a). However, when working in the United States, we often beginning with a shorter topical series (1a or 1b) and then Discovering God - Postmodern (2b). Discovering God should be followed by Discovering the Life of a Disciple (3).  Study the rest of the series in the order they are listed. You can skip passages to shorten the lessons except the Discovering God (2a and 2b) as each passage builds upon the previous one. (See chart below)

 

These series are also useful for Christians and may be studied in any order.
