People of the New Testament | Bible Study
by Chris Wondree
At Youth Ministry Conversations, we believe you know your group best. This means our resources look a little different than what you may have experienced in the past. We try and create a “buffet” of material so you can choose and pick what works best for your group. You will find ideas, instructions, and possibilities in this packet all related to the theme of “The People of the New Testament.” How you use them, and how you structure your study is up to you. We hope you enjoy this resource and return in the future to check out other materials.
This look at the New Testament’s lesser known figures is a great way to spark conversations about who the people of that time were. Each of these 10 lessons can be done in any order, as either stand alone or as part of the whole. Examine the characteristics that make them The People of the New Testament.
