Study 1 – They said it was impossible


They Said It Was Impossible is a series of Bible studies based upon Counties evangelist Clive Cornish’s inspirational adventures walking, climbing and marathon running with a 12×6 foot wooden cross. Stunning photography captures the excitement of these unique journeys while engaging narrative and relevant Bible passages develop themes inspired by real events.

They said it was impossible is series of four Bible studies. Study 1 is titled “They said it was impossible”. The Bible study is designed for individual and group use and can be downloaded to a computer, laptop, tablet or Smartphone.

The study is introduced by Clive through a video, followed by introductory questions, Bible passages and study questions which help explore the text. A final short video highlights relevant points, applies the lessons to life and draws the study to a conclusion. An accompanying booklet is also provided – if desired the booklet can be printed.

The multimedia studies were well received when employed in small church groups and a prison Bible study.

Further details are provided below.

1The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran. 5 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had accumulated and the people they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there.

Genesis 12:1-5

“They said it was impossible” is the first study in a series of four multimedia Bible studies. In Genesis 12 we learn Abraham was 75 years old when called by God to leave Harran. In Genesis 17 we read Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was conceived and Abraham and Sarah had waited 25 years for God to fulfil his promise to bless them. In the short video “They said it was impossible” we hear it was almost 14 years between God informing Clive he would walk with the cross and the start of the first walk around Wales. We learn when Clive announced he was going to walk with the cross many of his friends and family told him it was impossible. When Sarah was told she was going to bear a child she herself laughed in disbelief. After 25 years waiting she must have thought it would never happen. In this study we explore Genesis 17 and 18 and look at Isaac’s promised birth, how Abraham and Sarah reacted to God’s promise of the impossible and consider what this may mean for us today.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

Ephesians 3:20-21
