Jacob’s life was characterized by deception. He deceived his father to obtain his brother’s blessing and was later tricked by Laban. Throughout the many ups and downs of his life, Jacob struggled to recognize God’s presence. Even so, God remained with Jacob—just as He remains with believers today. In Jacob: Discerning God’s Presence, you’ll walk through life with Jacob and his family—learning along the way how their story is like your story.

Jacob: Discerning God’s Presence is Bible study like you’ve never known before. The complete church curriculum for leaders and pastors includes an e-book with infographics and a video for each chapter. It also includes lesson plans and handouts for leading Bible studies and small groups, as well as slide presentations for each chapter. Sermon outlines and media resources enable you to share with your entire church. This all-in-one curriculum helps your entire church dig deeper into the Bible, together.

It’s the Best Curriculum for Churches

  • Discover new meaning in the life of Jacob. Dig up the nuggets you might have missed. Find the perfect sermon illustrations. Discuss questions you’ve never thought to ask. Infuse your sermons with energy and conviction. Learn new ways to apply Jacob's story in your life—and in the life of your church.
  • Do ministry more effectively. Jacob: Discerning God's Presence gives you everything you need to hit the ground running—which means less time in meetings and at your desk, and more time doing ministry. You get to focus on your strengths and leave the heavy lifting to us.
  • Stay organized. This program helps you coordinate all your ministry programs. With a single, shared curriculum, your media team, small group leaders, Sunday school teachers, and everyone else all stay in the loop. This means fewer phone calls and last-minute surprises for you—and more time in the Word for your church.
  • Help your church get connected. Jacob: Discerning God's Presence connects people in your small groups to each other, and connects your small groups to the Sunday-morning experience. The topics in each small group Bible study integrate with your sermons. Best of all, everything is centered on the Word, so your church gets a complete, shared Bible study experience.
