Lesson 1 focuses on authority. Some claim reason, experience, emotions, or tradition as the ultimate determiner of truth. Jesus says, “Your word is truth” (John 17:17). This lesson establishes the Bible—the book God breathed out—as the universal ultimate authority on God, people, and truth itself.
Lesson 2 asks the question, “What does the Bible tell us about God?” The Bible separates everything and everyone into one of two categories: Creator or creature. This lesson describes God’s absolute uniqueness and the eternal dangers of worshiping creatures rather than the Creator.
Lesson 3 establishes that Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah who was predicted in the Old Testament and proclaimed in the New Testament. He is a member of the Godhead and yet fully human, too. He is, therefore, the only one who can quench the eternal wrath of the eternal God.
Lesson 4 explains how the LDS Church defines salvation and then provides the biblical concept of salvation. Jesus is the only one who can save us from our sin and God’s eternal wrath. Biblically, salvation is necessary, individual, complete, gracious, substitutionary, immediate, and transformational.
Lesson 5 answers the all-important question, “Who can speak for God?” Many have claimed this right, and the Bible encourages us to test their claims with a series of tests. We have in Jesus Christ the consummate Living Prophet who not only speaks God’s Word, but who Himself is the Word.
Lesson 6 explains what the Bible means when it uses the term “church.” It details the essential components of a church, introduces several New Testament word pictures for the Church, and then commands all true believers to invest in Christ’s Church by using their gifts.
Lesson 7 explores the biblical invitation to join God’s family. God invites you to join His family by the new birth, adoption, and marriage to the Lamb.
