Always wanted to explore and understand the Bible? It is easier said than done let’s be honest. Many believe the Bible to hold life changing power, but exploring a text thousands of years old and far removed from your culture is tricky at best.
We want to explore the Bible together in a book club format. We all read the same passage over the course of the month, make notes of our discoveries and questions. Then when we come together on the second Sunday of the month, we share and collaborate online via the Zoom app.

The first book of the Bible we are going to be reading through together is the book of Ezra. Originally the book of Ezra and Nehemiah were one book, but in today’s English translations they are two separate books.
So why have we chosen a book like Ezra to begin our Bible Book Club? David Kinnaman (President of Barna Global) called present-day Digital Babylon. Babylon it is pluralistic in it’s approach to the conversation on God. Babylon is fast-paced and frantic compared to Hebrew culture and society. Babylon is diverse, open-source and king of FOMO (fear of missing out). Babylon ebbs away and your culture, stripping away your uniqueness.
Sound a lot like the digital world we find ourselves in today?
That is why we are looking back at the book of Ezra, to see what we can learn from it to help us live here and now to the fullest.
For those interested, I fulled recommend getting an Ezra ESV Scripture Journal (pictured above) not only are they beautiful books they have a page for note-taking opposite every page of scripture. Perfect for writing down your thoughts or questions you may have around the text.
