CORE 52

A fifteen-minute daily guide to build your Bible IQ.

You want to know the Bible better because you know the Bible will make you better.

But where should I start? How can I progress past the confusing parts?

CORE 52 is your guide through the maze of a very big book.

Welcome to the fast-track of biblical training.

The CORE 52 book is available at Northeast

WEEKLY SERMONS, INDIVIDUAL/GROUP STUDY RESOURCES


WHY CORE 52?

  • This is an essential resource for individuals and groups who want to build confidence in God’s Word.
  • Think of CORE 52 as a fast-pass to biblical literacy, calling for 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 1 year.
  • Author Mark Moore identifies the most power-packed passages and distills them into a digestible format for busy people who want to gain proficiency with Scripture.
  • CORE 52 is a better way to know the Bible better.

What is CORE 52?

  • The CORE 52 book identifies the fifty-two most influential verses in the Bible, providing a brief essay for each verse, tracing its theme through the entire Bible.
  • The CORE 52 videos are 5–6-minute summaries of why each verse contributes to your faith journey. These can be used for individual consumption or to engage in group discussion.
  • The CORE 52 book uses the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible.
  • CORE 52 is a series for students and adults during Sunday worship services, as well as Small Group and Family Discussion if desired.

How to use CORE 52:

The five weekly exercises make this a plug-and-play individual study or group study curriculum:

  • Monday: read the four-page essay
  • Tuesday: memorize the core verse
  • Wednesday: read the core Bible story
  • Thursday: meditate on three verses with the same core
  • Friday: accomplish the core verse action step (which is best done in a small group)

NEED: Bridging people's interest in the Bible and their engagement with it.

80% of all church members want to know the Bible better. The two biggest barriers are that the Bible is too big and they don’t know where to start. CORE 52 removes both of those barriers. Furthermore, 60% of people who self-report wanting to know the Bible, do not currently attend any church.

VISION: Empower even the busiest people to master the core of the Bible.

Bible engagement is the single greatest predictor of spiritual success. Yet, the Bible is a big book and people don’t know where to start. CORE 52 eliminates both those barriers, allowing God’s truths to have transformative power for individuals, families, and churches.

MISSION: Provide a tool to achieve Bible mastery in just 15 minutes a day. 5 days a week in a single year.

Think of CORE 52 as your “FastPass” for knowing God’s Word, by-passing the lines of minutia, pushing you to the front of the biggest ideas of the Bible. It is the quickest route to move someone from curiosity to confidence in mastering the core message of Scripture and shaping a Christian worldview.
