2022 BIBLE STUDY OVERVIEW
The Bible is filled with stories of ordinary people God used in extraordinary ways to teach character and truth. Through Isaac’s life, we learn about sacrifice. Joseph’s life shows us the hard-fought beauty of forgiveness and reconciliation. Abraham’s story teaches us about obedience and forgiveness. From Esther, we learn how to be bold and courageous and take risks. One person In Scripture is the full and complete embodiment of every good trait any other character ever displayed - Jesus. He is the MATCHLESS ONE. Join us for FUGE Camps 2022 as we study the lives of these well-known Old Testament characters and see the story of Jesus foreshadowed in their lives.
DAY 1: SACRIFICE
Life questions: How does Jesus’ death on the cross for your sins impact your life? What does living sacrificially for Christ mean and how can I live it out?
Abraham was ready to sacrifice his son, Isaac but God provided a ram. The priests were required to make sacrifices for the sins of the people. These were foreshadowing of the sacrifice God provided in Jesus’ death on the cross for the sins of humankind. We must live sacrificially for Christ.
Scriptures: Genesis 22:1-4, Leviticus 4:27-35, Mark 15:21-37
DAY 2: FORGIVENESS
Life questions: When were you reconciled to God through Christ, receiving forgiveness for your sins? Who do you know who needs the forgiveness of Christ in his or her life?
Joseph was abandoned and sold into slavery by his brothers but God used that to provide for His people and worked through
Joseph to show forgiveness to his brothers. Jesus came to earth to bring forgiveness. Through His resurrection from the dead,
Jesus reconciled us to the Father, covering our sin and redeeming us so that we can have a relationship with the Father. We
must accept the forgivness of Christ and be willing to forgive ourselves and others.
Scripture: Genesis 37:3-4, 18-28; 39:1-6; 41:46-49, 53-57; 42:1-26; 45:1-14, John 20: 1-18
DAY 3: OBEDIENCE
Life Questions: How have you been obedient to God’s leading in your life? How can you remain faithful to Him in the future?
Abraham followed God’s plan and left his life as he knew it to relocate his family to Canaan. Even though Abraham was old
with no children, because of his obedience, God established a covenant with him that his descendants would become a great
nation. Jesus was obedient to God’s leading in His life. When Satan tempted him in the dessert, he remained true to God. And,
He resolved to live a perfect life on earth, to die on the cross and be raised again for the salvation of all mankind. We must be
obedient and remain faithful to God’s working in our lives.
Scripture: Genesis 11:31-12:1-9, Genesis 15:1-21, Luke 4:1-13
DAY 4: RISK
Life questions: What does taking a risk for Christ look like? How can you muster the courage to act when the situation is risky?
Out of boldness and courage, Esther was willing to take risks for her people, the Jews, by becoming Queen and approaching
the King on behalf of her people. Jesus went against the status quo, tradition, and the religious leaders in order to spread the
gospel. We must take risks to share and live out Christ.
Scripture: Esther 2:5-10, 15-18; 5:1-8; 8:1-13, Luke 4:31-36, Luke 19:45-48
