God's Promise: I Am with You
2018–2019 Horizons Bible study
By Amy Poling Sutherlun with Suggestions for
Leaders by Brenda Bertrand
The 2018—2019 PW/Horizons Bible study, God’s Promise: I Am with You, takes readers on a journey through scripture to consider circumstances in whichGod articulated God’s promise of presence. This study does not delve deeply into manifestations of God’s presence but rather on God’s actual articulation of God’s promise. We will see anew that God offered these words of profound comfort and commitment to individuals and communities from the time of the patriarchs to that of the prophets; from the judges tothe kings; before, during, and after the exile; into the New Testament and beyond, to the end of the age.
