832 The Context Bible - Introduction 12/08/2013 W. Mark Lanier Want to read the Bible all the way through in 2014? Ever tried to do it before and had trouble wading through some of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy before you heard the Good News about Jesus? Maybe you've never read the Bible because you couldn't put it into context. Mark Lanier introduces "The Context Bible".  Using The Gospel of John, The Acts of the Apostles, and the Book of Revelations as anchor texts, daily readings covering all the books of the Bible will be applied to each week's verses. Come to the Lanier Life Group and hear in depth study extending from the worship hour by Dr. Fleming. 55
834 Lesson 1- John 1:1-8 01/08/2014 W. Mark Lanier This lesson covers the first eight verses of the first chapter of the Gospel of John, making it clear that the person of Christ was of the Word, in the beginning of time, one with God, and promised in the Old Testament. 54
835 Lesson 2 - John 1:9-14 01/15/2014 W. Mark Lanier

This lesson covers verses 9 through 14 of the first chapter of the Gospel of John, making it clear that Christ was the true light of the world, which “enlightens everyone”, and that God, the light, was coming into the world.  Here Jesus is recognized as something beyond creation.

845 Lesson 6 - John 3:1-­‐3:36 02/06/2014 W. Mark Lanier

This Lesson covers John 3: 1 – 3: 36, the story of Jesus’ encounter with Nicodemus and John the Baptist, as the willing, humble servant and forerunner to the Messiah. The accompanying passages from the old Testament point to the importance of ancestry to identify Jesus, Jesus’ role in bringing salvation to those who dread God’s wrath, and the value of true humility and being born again, in the spirit with the promise of everlasting love and life.

846 Lesson 7 - John 3:31‐4:26 02/06/2014 Jared Richard 48
847 Lesson 8 - John 4:27 - 4:45 02/06/2014 W. Mark Lanier This lesson covers the verses John 4:27 - 4:45 and includes the Sermon on the Mount. Christ, as man and God, knew intimately the hunger for physical and spiritual needs of the people to whom he was ministering. This lesson looks at how Christ taught that He was there to fill their needs, as their Savior. 47
836 Lesson 3 - John 1:14-34 01/19/2014 W. Mark Lanier John 1:14 -28 sees John the Baptist testifying that he not Elijah or the messiahs but  “the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as Isaiah the prophet said.” 52
837 Lesson 4 - John 1:29-2:12 01/26/2014 W. Mark Lanier

This lesson covers Christ’s role as the Lamb of God and Messiah and as Christ begins his ministry, we realize how familiar He is with the Old Testament prophecy. Because of this, Christ can point to why He fulfills the roll and is truly the Son of God.

51
844 Lesson 5 - John 2:1-­‐2:25 02/06/2014 Jared Richard

In chapter of John, he gives Jesus’ role in the wedding at Cana, the marketplace at Passover and Christ’s fulfillment as the temple. The context verses provide a celebration of the institution of marriage, the replacement of blood sacrifice by Christ and the importance of the temple in early Jewish history.

50
851 Lesson 9 - John 4:43-4:45 02/25/2014 W. Mark Lanier Covering the verses John 4:43 - 4:45 and including the continuation of the Sermon on the Mount, the lesson covers Christ's reinforcement that he was not there to abolish the law but to fulfill it in a way that few Jews expected. The law taught a society how to legally pursue life; Christ as the fulfillment taught how an individual should live life. More 'Good News', God wants ut to grow closer to him each day, learning from our mistakes, with the power of the Holy Spirit. 46
852 Lesson 10 - John 4:43-4:45 02/25/2014 W. Mark Lanier This lesson covers John 4:43 - 4:45 and the supporting  context verses can offer a purely secular explanation for the rebellion of Israel at a time when stronger surrounding nations were set to take Israel over. Yet the spiritual truth is much more profound, and adds a dimension through faith that should speak to us today. God constantly works through the world as he works in the world. Our tendency is to credit God simply in those areas where we have gaps of knowledge and an inability to offer any other explanation. This is a tragic view as not only setting faith to disappear (when and if the knowledge gap is closed through new understanding), but also in failing to see God’s hand in weaving the fabric of everyday life. When Jesus urged us to pray daily for God to give us bread, he was not suggesting that a loaf would magically appear out of nowhere on our porch each morning. The prayer conveys, at least typically that God will work in and through the world to bring forth the bread needed and prayed for..

854 Lesson 11 - John 4:46-5:21 03/05/2014 W. Mark Lanier This lesson deals with verses 4:46 - 5:21 in John. Do you know how valuable intercession is for the believer? Do you know we were made to work? Find out what supports these statements from John and the verses that Christ himself quoted from the Old Testament. 44
857 Lesson 12 - John 5:22-6:40 03/13/2014 W. Mark Lanier In this lesson we investigate Jesus as master of nature, as our provider, and judge. 43
859 Lesson 13 - John 6:41-7:24 03/22/2014 W. Mark Lanier

Following God is not always easy. But God makes the call, and it is his people's blessings to get to say, "Yes Lord, we will follow"! Scripture provides a stark contrast between those that choose to follow the the Lord and his ways and those that  choose their on instead.

861 Lesson 14 - John 7:25 - 8:59 03/30/2014 W. Mark Lanier This lesson covers 'Jesus on Jesus'. Who did Christ say he was? Did he claim to be God? What role does humility play in the Christian's life and di Christ model humility. This is a great lesson, no matter where you are in the Context Bible! 41
