Study Guide

The study guide is available free of charge for distribution to discussion group participants in either print or digital format. 


It provides resources for 12 or 13 weeks of group discussion, although some groups will prefer to arrange the discussion into three sets of 4 sessions each:
  • Getting Started: Introduction
  • Set 1: Recent Research into the World of Jesus (Chapters 1, 2, 3 & 4)
  • Set 2: Jesus in the Gospels (Chapters 5, 6, 7 & 8)
  • Set 3: The Significance of Jesus Now (Chapters 9, 10, 11 & 12)

The guide is available in two different digital formats:
# Due to some changes made to pagination between the first and second printing, the study guides are available in different "editions" that reflect these differences in the page numbering. For the convenience of discussion groups which may have different print runs of the book, there is an incremental "creep" of page numbers as you proceed through the book:
