How to use these studies

These sessions were recorded over four Tuesday evenings in October/November 2018 at St. Petri Lutheran Church, Nuriootpa, in the Barossa Valley, South Australia.

The sessions ran for two hours, including a supper break. This is the best way to use the material in your own setting if possible.

The material is designed to be used in a group setting, but you can adapt it to use one on one, or just view the material personally.

Each evening consisted of the same elements: direct input from Rev. Dr. Noel Due; an approach to inductive Bible Study called “Dwelling in the Word”; some work around tables/in groups; and some questions and answers.

Round table work

At various points this symbol appears on the PowerPoint slides. That indicates time for work around tables or in groups. The PowerPoint slides are available here (in PDF).

Dwelling in the Word

On the video, Noel gives clear instructions on how to run the Dwelling in the Word section of the evening. You can find additional guidelines here.

Range Finding Exercise

Session 1 includes a ‘range finding exercise’. The questions for that exercise are on the PowerPoint slides.

Clearly, not all groups will match the answers given by the original audience. During sessions 2, 3 and 4, Noel addresses various aspects of the responses given.

Group leaders will need to be responsive to their own situations to fill in any other areas that Noel’s comments do not address.

Homework

There are some optional ‘take home’ pieces for folk to work on between the sessions. Noel gathers these responses on the videos, and there’ll clearly be other from your own setting.

Preview and Pre-reading

Group leaders should preview the whole series of studies before running the first session. Before each session group leaders should also review all the readings and any other relevant Bible passages so that you are familiar with the context and content.

Follow Up Publication

Please look out for a new book, co-authored by Noel Due and Dr. Steen Olsen, due for release in 2019 Life in the Spirit: Normal Christian Living.
