Once again this year Bible Society is offering a nationwide Bible reading programme to churches, home groups and individuals.
Following on from last year’s highly successful E100 programme, Essential Jesus again takes the reader on a journey of 100 Bible readings, this time focusing on the person of Jesus.
Like E100, Essential Jesus offers a companion book and a personal planner as well as a locally-produced DVD which features New Zealand Christians, such as a policeman and a busy young mother, talking about how they live out their faith in their daily lives.
Children aren’t forgotten either. Investigators Inc is an interactive children’s programme which encourages them to discover who Jesus really is.
There’s still time for you, your church or home group to register for the Essential Jesus challenge.
