Gospels in 40 Days Starts March 1
We are beginning a new study of the gospels during the Lenten season to be intentional about growing closer to God through reading about what Jesus did for us. Lent is the Christian tradition of preparing for the resurrection of Jesus by taking intentional steps to grow closer to God during the 40 days before Easter. The tradition mirrors Jesus going into the wilderness to fast and pray for 40 days, where he was tempted by Satan but was able to resist, strengthen, and grow his ministry for the days ahead (Matthew 4). Typical Lenten observances include fasting, repentance, moderation, self-denial, and spiritual discipline.
With this study, there will be three reading plans to choose from — All of It, Most of It, and the Highlight Reel — with scripture readings from the gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John for 3-6 days each week during Lent, from March 1 to April 15. The Highlight Reel may be the perfect size to read with your family.
To join the study, follow the reading plan, journal on it using the SOAP method of Bible study (see “What’s SOAP?” on our website for details), and check in for daily posts from our study leaders. We hope you will join us this season, intentionally stepping toward God!
