The mission of the Yale Bible Study is to engage clergy and lay audiences in small group Bible study by providing studies of biblical books, deepened by insights from Yale Divinity School professors. These materials form an accessible, free, and deeply thoughtful and informed group Bible study program.
Why Study With Us?
Yale Divinity School faculty and associates help to make the scriptures come alive through detailed study guides that provide in-depth content to spark conversation and deepen understanding.
Each lesson in each study includes a video overview with our scholars, a study guide, questions for reflection and discussion, and suggested additional resources to enrich your understanding of the sacred text.
The studies are designed to be small group experiences that support the formation of community through shared learning.
Welcome to the Yale Bible Study. We hope this curriculum will help you and
your community deepen your life of faith through small group study.
Whether you are a minister, a church staff member, or a layperson, you probably stepped forward to lead a study because you enjoy leading or have experience as a leader. Prior experience in leading small-group discussions can be useful although it is not a requirement.
