Begin each lesson with a Scripture passage followed by a lesson that expounds the passage and highlights its practical application. You’ll then answer several review questions and memorize an assigned passage. Additional activities are often suggested.

In a group setting, participants complete each lesson at home, then meet to review and discuss what they have learned.

The sample lesson is from Unit Two, Lesson 10 of the written course Future Events, Present Duty: Studies in Old Testament Prophecy. These pages are taken from the leader's guide, which includes the answers to the review questions as well as suggestions for group discussion in the "Notes" column.

Each lesson typically includes a Scripture reading, a memory passage, and an optional textbook-reading assignment.
