We shall be meeting in Small Groups for fellowship, Prayer and Bible study.
This Autumn we are going to use the Swedish Bible Study Method on some of the Kings of Israel.
The chapter for Small Group discussion on Wednesday 10th October is 1 KIngs 12 and Jeroboam and Rehoboam. It's the chapter where the nation of Israel divides into two (Israel = North / Judah = South) after the death of Solomon. It gives us the background for the rest of the Old Testament after this event. It also shows how an alternative altar, sacrifices and worship started. God's choice was Jerusalem and the temple; but here we see what happens when people do their own thing.
We shall be reading the Scripture and then going through it with these 3 things in mind.
*A light bulb: Share something that ‘shines’ from the passage—whatever impacts most, or draws attention.
*A question mark: What do you find difficult to understand in the text, or what question would you like to ask the writer of the passage or the Lord?
*An arrow: What would be a personal application for my life?
