About Us

Bible Study L.O.G. is a catalog of PowerPoint slides from a Bible study that takes place in Juneau, Alaska by members of Radiant Church Juneau. We hope these Bible studies will be helpful to anyone who wants to dive deeper into, "the unified story of the gospel that is present throughout the whole Bible" (Bible Project).

L.O.G. is an acronym for "in Light Of the Gospel", and "through the Lens Of the Gospel". The gospel is the focus whenever we study scripture. The gospel lights up those dark parts that confuse us. The gospel perspective helps us understand and divide the scripture. Ultimately, it is through the gospel lens that the bible studies cataloged on this site are composed and discussed.

Radiant Church Juneau uses a 4 point summary of the gospel. The 4 point summary provides a helpful way to remember the basic elements of the gospel. Also, the 4 point summary indicates the gospel is not only a New Testament concept, but an overarching theme throughout the whole Bible. This 4 point summary is included at the beginning of every Bible study as a reminder that the gospel needs to be the focus each time we look at scripture.

The 4 point summary is Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration:

  1. Creation: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, with humanity as the climax of His creation as His image bearers to rule over the earth by His wisdom and guidance.
  2. Fall: Humanity fell from that good design by sinning and passing on the consequence of death.
  3. Redemption: Because of His love, God enacted a plan to redeem humanity from the just punishment all humanity deserves for our sins. This plan of redemption climaxed with Jesus. Jesus, fully God and fully man, lived a perfect life, but came to die in our place and pay for our sins. On the third day, Jesus rose from the grave. Through His sacrifice, Jesus now offers eternal life to those who repent of their sins and recognize Jesus as their Lord and savior.
  4. Restoration: After the resurrection Jesus ascended back to heaven, promising to return to judge the unbelievers of the world, and to bring the saints into eternal life in His kingdom of a restored heaven and earth.

Because the gospel is found through the whole Bible the goal is to switch between the Old and New Testament when going through books of the Bible. There are many cross references mentioned in the PowerPoints to link topics and themes in the Old Testament to topics and themes in the New Testament, and vice versa. There is a recommended order to go through the Bible studies based on how the bible study group has been going through them, but it is up to you how you want to explore our content (Bible Study Sequence). However, it is strongly recommended that the very first Bible study you go through is the Genesis 1-11 study because, "the opening chapters of Genesis set up the whole premise of the unified story of the Bible that points to Jesus" (Bible Project).

Bible studies are not just formal lessons to absorb information like a sponge and just sit in place with that knowledge. To help you put this knowledge into action there are application slides in the PowerPoints with a few questions for you to think about.

One piece of advice: when viewing the PowerPoints watch through it in presentation mode since there are some presentations with animations. The videos in the slides will not play automatically in presentation mode, so if you don't want to watch the video you can just go to the next slide.

Radiant Church Juneau and the BibleProject have been mentioned specifically as major influences in the formation of these PowerPoints, and you will notice names or video links to other content creators in some PowerPoints. Reference to these other entities is intended to be a way to give a broader view on a topic by showing how others interpret or explain information. We still keep the gospel as our lens of interpretation, so while there is no formal endorsement of any particular entity we reference, whether or not we agree with what these other entities teach is based on their agreement with the gospel. We do encourage you to wisely listen to these other content creators to supplement what we are sharing.

We hope you enjoy these Bible studies! If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about content on this webpage; please submit a message to us using the contact button in the navigation bar on the top of the webpage.
