Learn Bible Niccie Kliegl

Welcome to the Core40 Experience!

This year-long adventure is designed to help you better understand the arc and key concepts that are present in the Christian Bible. Together, we’ll explore forty pivotal passages that as a grid to help you in further study of scripture.

If this is your first time picking up a Bible, it’s our prayer that Core40 can be a delightful first step into God’s Word for you. We pray that you’ll tear through this material and then go on to read more! If you have studied the Bible in the past, and this is a refresher course, we hope that you will feel new vigor to rediscover the encouragement that the Old and New Testaments hold out for believers. And if you are a veteran of the text, we trust that you will be reminded once again of what a special book it is that God has given to his children.

Every week (usually on Wednesday) we will share a new week with you. These passages have been carefully selected as a sort of “appetizer platter”. They are intended to give you a sample of some of the main ideas about God, people, and the world that can be discovered in the Bible. Would you like to receive weekly emails (usually on Wednesday) of the most recent week? If so, click the subscribe button.

May God’s Spirit surround you, enlighten you, and sustain you as you journey with us!
