Essential Jesus Challenge

WHAT IS THE E-Jesus CHALLENGE?

The Essential Jesus (E-Jesus) Challenge is a devotional plan published by Scripture Union that covers the storyline of Jesus. It has the 100 essential Scripture passages which tell the story of Jesus, 25 from the Old Testament, 75 from the New Testament.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Participants will use the Essential Jesus Reading Plan for their daily/weekly devotions.  Each devotion is a portion of a chapter of reading from the Bible, and will usually take less than 10 minutes to read.

WHAT IS eacFUSION DOING WITH E-Jesus?

eacFusion is providing the opportunity for our community to strengthen their daily devotions by taking part in this challenge together during the 2012-2013 ministry year. We have divided the 100 passages into 40 weekly groups of 2 or 3 passages.  This way we will finish the challenge by the end of the school/ministry year.

WHEN DO I START?

We decided to start our challenge for the week starting September 10th.  If you don't start at this time, don't worry!  Go ahead and start reading or jump in wherever we are at that time.  The object is really about allowing the Holy Spirit to work in your life through these passages... so don't get stressed out if you are not right on the plan dates.
