Barnabas Bible Studies for House Groups - Roger Jones & Simon N Cooper
When he arrived and saw what the grace of God had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. Barnabas was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith. (Acts 11:23-24)
Barnabas is an often-overlooked character who features in the Acts of the Apostles. His gentle work was vital to the growth and development of the Early Church. Without his support and encouragement, Saul may never have embarked on his missionary journeys, or founded the churches to whom he would later write the letters which form much of the New Testament.
These Bible studies help us to look in depth at Barnabas in order to learn how we too may bless and encourage those around us.
8 bible study sessions for house groups with bible reflections, questions for discussion, worship ideas, prayers and creative activities.
"We have found your book an excellent course to study; ideal for a group of our size (usually 8). It is very well constructed and very challenging for most of us, which is no bad thing! When I say ´challenging´ I suppose what I mean is that it encourages us to be more active rather than passive in our walk with God. It is not enough for us simply to be ´back seat´ followers of Him; easy to say but not necessarily so easy to do!
Certainly, if any of the other home groups are looking for some new material to study, then they could do no better than to take on ´Barnabas´. It is a commendable study book which you and Simon Cooper have put together; "worthy of all men to be received"!"
