John’s first letter is a treatise on truth, challenging you to test your beliefs against the anvil of God’s Word.  Written at a time when many believers in the faith were turning from the gospel to false teachings, 1 John reminds us of what it means to abide in Christ and have true fellowship one another. John’s words echo through history to us as current day students in the Word: Don’t be deceived! Walk in His light! Love the Lord!

Equipping Parents


The vision of the Bible Bee is to encourage parents as they disciple their children- that’s why we include free Parent Guidebooks with every family registration. The Parent Guidebooks include a complete overview of the Sword Studies and a “Family Bonfire” section to make it simple for Dad or Mom to lead a fun, weekly time of sharing and reviewing what the Lord has taught everyone is their study and prayer throughout the week. Additional Parent Guidebooks are available at the Bible Bee E-Store.
