About this Item

What Jesus Demands from the World Bible Study Book includes a small-group experience for six sessions, individual study, applicable Scripture, and a group discussion guide. It also includes tips for leading a group.

A thoughtful examination of Jesus' demands reveals a compelling yet personal portrait of Jesus Christ in the Scriptures. The four Gospels are filled with demands like "be born again," "love your God," and "lay up treasures." Far from harsh demands originating from a selfish desire to control, Jesus' words are more a clarion call of urgency—loving directions for our good and ultimate satisfaction. In fact, what Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as, "Trust and treasure me above all." This is good news!

Do you wonder what's next? Has your faith grown stagnant? Is your spiritual walk in a dry season? Are you interested in knowing Jesus more deeply? This study serves as an accessible introduction for thoughtful inquirers and new believers, as well as a refreshing reminder for more mature believers of God's plan for His Son's glory and our good.

Session topics include:

  1. You Must Be Born Again
  2. Love God with All Your Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength
  3. Love Your Enemies 
  4. Render to Caesar
  5. Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
