Bible 101: The Overview
Bible 101: The Overview
Does your Bible spend more time on your desk than it does in your hands? Does the thought of opening it intimidate you to the point of not even trying? Is the Bible something you want to be more familiar with but don’t really know where to start? Then get ready because the #LiveSaltedSummerSeries is for you!
Real quick, ask yourself if you have ever had these thoughts:
- The bible is too long, why should I even try reading it?
- I want to read the Bible, but where do I start?
- I look up the verses from my daily devotional in my Bible, but that is about it- how can I dive in deeper?
- What’s the point in reading my Bible if I am listening to podcasts and reading books about Jesus- isn’t it the same thing?
- I read the Bible but nothing ever sinks in, how can I change that?
If you have had these thoughts, or ones along a similar path- then you are in for a treat with our #LiveSaltedSummerSeries! We will be digging into all of those questions and more, equipping you through 8 weeks of post, tools, verses, and challenges to help guide you along the way towards a better understanding of the Bible.
Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’ John 6:35
Summer can be a time filled with new adventures, friends, jobs, and experiences. It is a time to reflect upon all that has happened over the past months and pray for what is to come. However, summer CAN also be a time of confusion, disappointment, and possibly frustration as plans are not coming together as you hoped; you didn’t get the job you wanted or maybe you are feeling down because the normal go-go-go of life has taken a pause. Wherever you are on this spectrum- Jesus knows, cares, and wants to meet you right where you are.
One of the #1 ways He can meet you there is through His living and breathing text— the Bible.
We know the Bible can be scary. It can be intimidating. It can seem like too much to comprehend at times, BUT… it is the life line of our communication with our Heavenly Father, it is transformative, and it is worth every moment spent on learning how to dive deeper.
The Bible is the story of Jesus. It is the compilation of stories, facts, and insight into the fabric of this world. It is real, it is alive, it is a wellspring of knowledge, and when thoughtfully read, it will transform your life.

What do you say? Are you in?
Our prayer is that by the end of the summer, you will no longer feel intimidated or overwhelmed by the Bible, but rather find yourself in the morning waking up, grabbing a cup of coffee or tea, then sitting down with your Bible before you even start your day. The word is living and breathing, it will allow you never to go hungry and thirsty AND it is always there waiting to be read.
We are so excited for you to join in on this adventure- it’s going to be one amazing ride.
