Explore The Bible Lesson Previews

Life Bible Studies are one of the primary ways we "grow our hearts" at Houston's First Baptist Church. At every campus, volunteer teachers faithfully prepare lessons as they serve their respective classes each Sunday. Many of our adult Life Bible Studies follow the Explore The Bible curriculum produced by LifeWay.

To equip our teachers, Executive Pastor Dr. David Self provides a preview for each week's lesson. Dr. Self has faithfully written and recorded these valuable resources for many, many years. They began on cassette tapes, transitioned to CDs, and then moved to being posted online.

We are happy to make these previews available for our teachers as well as for anybody from anywhere — regardless of church — who is using the Explore The Bible curriculum. The current semester's lesson previews are listed below and will be posted here as they are available. You can also subscribe to an email distribution list to have lesson previews sent directly to you once they are ready to go!

For previous lesson previews, please view the Explore the Bible Lesson Archive below.
