  1. thank much for ur concerning am always visit your website but my request in that lesson are always available in english and ather language but there are people from east african countries who wishes to read the lesson through internet but they dont english it si our request the kiswahili copy to be available in website so aspeople from east africa can understand the word of God. THANK MUCH MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

  2. This is a nice service and great for back up when traveling, however if everyone used this format there would no longer be funds from the purchased printed versions to continue producing the digital and the whole format would collapse. It would cost twice as much to print this out on one's home computer than to purchase the actual printed version from your ABC. With the printed version one can actually write in the notes and answer the questions from the texts they look up so study is interactive. It's best to subscribe through your or make sure your church is subscribing and members are contributing to the expense.....Just Saying!

  3. I am From Africa Ethiopia born Aventist one of the best things I like from being Adventist is becoming student of the bible through the Sabbath School. I love it and we study it at home with my wife and three kids of ours.
    God bess you as you serve the multitude.

    • Dear Arop,

      We do not send out lessons weekly. You can access our weekly lessons by going to our front page and clicking on one of the options above and below the lesson cover at the top of the left sidebar.

      We do send out daily lessons. To receive these by email, you need to subscribe yourself to one of our email distribution lists.

      To do so, go to our front page and click on "Discuss." Underneath, you will see a drop-down menu, which includes "Posts by Email." Click on that and choose the appropriate option. For the Daily Lessons, choose the option for your area of the world.

      If at some time you should want to unsubscribe, use the link at the bottom of one of the posts you received.

    • The short answer is that there is no single "best bible version to study." If at all possible, it is best to consult several different versions to get an idea of what translations are possible from the original text.

      The bottom line is probably that the best Bible version for you is one you will actually read. The "best bible version" that mainly sits on the shelf is not nearly as good as a "lesser" version that you read.

      And most important of all is to ask the Holy Spirit to interpret the Bible to you. He inspired the Bible in the first place, and He can and will make it as clear to you as necessary.

  4. Thanks a lot Brethren for the lessons. we are growing rich with the word of our God every day as we study.

    let all churches both local look for a formula of studying our lessons as we do not read and finish on time. let us be good steward of time.

    be blessed all.

    • Samuel, I would like to suggest a more helpful approach than going through the lesson, page by page.

      I recommend that each teacher study the lesson at least three times:
      1) Once, with the question, "What does God want to say to me in this lesson?"
      2) What is the most important point in this lesson for my Sabbath School Class? What is the main theme?
      3) Study with the idea of coming up with good questions to allow the class to conclude what the teacher concluded in (2).

      If teachers follow this format, they will always be able "cover" the most important points in the lesson for their classes. They can arrange their lesson outline in the order of most important to "also important" and "helpful," followed by a summary of the most important points just before closing.

      And as Sabbath School "students," please appreciate a teacher doing serious preparation and not following the lesson outline day by day.

  5. Hi, Inge Anderson I will follow your format approach of the lesson. thank you for the formula. three important questions to ask myself before reading the lesson.

  6. The lesson is helpful, it helps u walk in the lord's on a daily basis the only challange the we face in our local church is the way teachers are nominated. What are the best way of mominatimg teachers? Should there be any criteria?

  7. Happy Sabbath! I'm very much impressed that Kiswahili Sabbath Lesson is indicated to be available in one of the above listed websites above in this article. Amen! I was wondering whether producing the Dhuluo edition can also be made available online for computer literate Luos' like myself who know how to read and worship with fellow villagers in the village as well.

  8. Great work. Are there other books that we cn refer to for this quarter's lesson? the book "The cross and its shadow" was of great help in understanding the Sanctuary better,hope u avail the same for this quarter.thanks

  9. Hi Do you still have the Sacremento church link for Sabbath School somewhere? I know you used to have it but can't find it

    • Currently we do not know of anyone producing the lesson in PowerPoint, but that doesn't mean that no one does.

      If anyone would like to offer a PowerPoint version, they can let us know.

  10. I wanted to know if there is a site you can recommend where people around the world participate in the weekly lesson discussion online so that i can gather a wider range of views. I am a lesson teacher and i like taking a practical approach in my teaching as it makes a greater impact to my class as opposed to just reading the written text.

    • Alex, you are on that site! It is called Sabbath School Net. :)

      If you'll go to our front page or to the Daily Lesson page, you'll see comments from people all over the world. I suggest you consult our Frequently Asked Questions page if you need a little help understanding our site.

      As far as I know, this is the only site with this many exchanges from people around the world. However, the blog is only one way of discussing the lesson. You can also subscribe to our email list, which is a little lest structured. Discussions tend to run on longer there. :)

      I suggest you also review our Comment Guide Lines, which ask you to use your first and last name, among other things. :)

      • Thank Anderson you for the guidance. At first, I was just rushing through the page as i was working with several windows on the same. I have taken time to view through the comments and am finding very useful contributions on this weeks lesson. Thank you again and God bless you.
