A Prophetic Christmas

Advent 2020

A four-week exploration of the prophetic announcements surrounding Messiah’s birth in Luke 1–2.

This real-time course will guide you through a study of the structure, thought flow, main point(s) and takeaways of four prophetic announcements relating to the birth of Christ. Our aim: to grow our hope and joy in Jesus.

We will study one passage each week, highlighting a variety of Biblearc tools including Phrasing, Arcing, Bracketing, and Paraphrase. Old Testament connections within each passage will also be explored in depth. The course will provide study guides for each passage, keys and tips related to the various tools, and interactive discussions via Facebook Live and an optional discussion group.

The course is free to audit. Simply click the "enroll in this course" button below and decline a coach.

Course Aim

To meditate on the meaning and significance of Messiah’s advent as presented in Luke’s Gospel, for the purpose of increased hope and joy through this advent season.

Course Format

Lesson content will be released each Sunday (beginning Nov 29th). Students may explore this content and the focus passage at their convenience throughout the week.

Students will be able to view recordings of the FB Live at a later time if they miss the live event.
