Namesake DVDby Jessica LaGrone
Namesake is a six-week Bible study about biblical names—where they came from and how God often changed people’s names when He changed them. The core themes of the study are transformation—the transformation God works in an individual’s life—and revelation—how God reveals Himself progressively in Scripture.
Each week focuses on the story of a different biblical character or characters:
Week 1: Abraham and Sarah (25:04)
Week 2: Jacob (27:07)
Week 3: Naomi (25:28)
Week 4: Daniel (23:42)
Week 5: Peter (25:51)
Week 6: The woman caught in adultery (22:17)
Participants explore each character and how his or her name was changed, as well as the transformation that God worked in the individual’s life. The idea is for participants to learn Scripture not only as history but also as fascinating biography, and then to apply to their own lives ways that God might want to transform them.
The DVD contains six video segments of 22-27 minutes each for use during the group sessions, plus a short introductory video (3-5 minutes)
All video sessions are closed captioned.
