We are Currently  in a Chapter-By-Chapter Study of Luke’s Gospel.

Some thoughts on how to use this material:

Each chapter includes study questions after each section of verses, with occasional “Deep Dive” in-depth investigations. In addition, a set of general activities for further study ends each session.

These work for personal study, or for small group A small group might spend about 45 minutes per session, selecting  2 or 3 questions to discuss. It works best to study the chapters ahead of the group discussion. You could choose which  question(s) you have comments, questions, and expansions on, and bring those ideas to the group study.

In the typical time allowed for a group Bible study, it’s unlikely to be able to discuss all the questions, which is why private study before (and after) will help to develop a deeper understanding of what the session covered. And each chapter study only hits a few high points, so spending a little more time with each chapter will be quite a treasure hunt!
