So many of you got it right! The clock in Impossible Clue Number One was a small detail you quickly identified as a Scripture reference and it didn't take you long to figure out the VBS 2014 verse is 1 Peter 3:15:
"But honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you."
And several of you also figured out at least two-thirds of the VBS 2014 motto:
Discover. Decide. Defend.
I am excited to announce the Bible content of Agency D3 is not only one of the strongest evangelistic studies we have ever offered, but is a study in apologetics at its best! Kids, teens, and adults will be challenged to discover for themselves the evidence that reveals who Jesus is, decide for themselves if this evidence can be trusted and accepted, and then given the tools to defend their decision. During each session, the agents of Agency D3 will investigate the truths of Scripture discovering that Jesus is truly the Son of God, is more than just a good man, died a real death, but is today alive!
While there will still be a specific day for presenting the ABCs of Becoming a Christian, the discussion becomes a response opportunity to the foundation that has already been created by daily evangelistic emphasis and statements.
And for those of you using The Gospel Project ongoing Bible study resources, you will be happy to see daily Christ Connection statements.
