Journey Group Resources: Weekly Exegetical Guides

This guide is meant to kickstart biblical exegesis for weekly study by Journey Group Leaders and other students of God’s Word. Here we provide historical-cultural background and literary context information in a concise format to help you in Step 1 of the Interpretive Journey—discovering what the text meant to its original audience.


Note: This guide is meant as a kickstart to the FIRST step to exegesis, NOT as a complete interpretation of the meaning of the passage. (The rest of Step 1 and the subsequent four steps are meant to be completed in your personal time with the Lord and in your Journey Group discussion.)
