Introductory Thoughts

1.  Knowing God

      How is it that we have come to know about God? (read Romans 1)
      Where is God and His kingdom?

      How do we come to know God personally? (read John 14)

      How does God know us?

2.  Scripture and the Story of God's Rredemption of Mankind
      Why is the Bible so important to us?

      What are the different parts of the Bible?

      Why does the Bible start off with the story contrasting God’s good creation—
         and Adam and Eve’s early fall into sin?

      In what way did Adam and Eve fail to meet God’s test?

      Why is God’s redemption of all mankind central to the rest of the story?

3.  God's Chosen People

      Which of God’s people does He love? (read John 3:16)

      Why has He chosen only some to be “His People”? (read Deuteronomy 7)

      How does someone become one of the “chosen”? (read Romans 8)

      How do people know that they are among God’s chosen?
