Most of our archived Adult Bible Study Guides include linked Scripture references for your convenience so you can read the Word of God as you study the Sabbath School Bible lesson online wherever you may be. Currently we offer both and Bible Gateway versions. The default programming is currently the NKJV, but in previous years the default was the NIV Bible. However, with one additional click, you can read the Bible verse in the language and version of your choice. Please remember that the internet is a medium of change, and some of the links in previous lessons may no longer work. Specifically, if you want to contact us, do so through the contact link on this page, not the link at the bottom of previous lessons.

Archives of Adult Bible Study Guides, 1863-2015 (new!)

What were the Seventh-day Adventist pioneers studying in Sabbath School in 1863… in 1888… in 1914? Our new archives now includes quarterly & weekly lesson titles, cover images and PDF download links for every lesson since the formal Sabbath School guide was established in 1888. From 1863 to 1887 Sabbath School lessons appeared in the Review and Herald under the title of “Lessons for Bible Students”. This page is operational but currently under construction as we go through the old records.
