There are few emotions more powerful than hope. But these days, hope often feels hard to come by. Where can we find a hope that won’t disappoint us?
Looking at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel, this three-session series from Christianity Explored Ministries shows that Christianity is about real hope: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about my present.
It sounds good… but is it true? Whatever people do or don’t believe, Hope Explored offers them an opportunity to explore, to discuss and to discover the hope, peace and purpose Jesus offers.
With only three sessions, Hope Explored does not require a huge time commitment from guests, so it is one of the easiest ways to introduce someone to Christianity. It can be run in person or on video-meeting technology, in small groups or one to one. The Christianity Explored series can then be run as a follow-up course for those eager to explore the Christian faith more.
On this DVD, Rico Tice, Founder of Christianity Explored Ministries, introduces the concepts for each session (Hope, Peace, Purpose) and delivers compelling Bible teaching from Luke’s Gospel. The ideas are then discussed as participants look at the Bible passage together.
In addition to the DVD, leaders of this series will need a Leader's Handbook . Participants will need a Handbook (see below)
Contents Session 1: Hope – Part 1 and Part 2 Christianity is about a hope worth having; Jesus came into our world as the Mighty God and can deliver on his promises for the future. Session 2: Peace – Part 1 and Part 2 Our lack of peace in life is a symptom of our lack of peace with God; Jesus’ death deals with our sin so he can offer us peace. Session 3: Purpose – Part 1 and Part 2 To find meaning in life, we need an answer to death—and that’s what Jesus’ resurrection gives us.
