Sabbath School audio lessons

I was thinking recently that there really should be a Progressive Adventist Sabbath School lesson discussion pod cast. So I decided to search the internet and see what Sabbath School pod casts (mp3 or streamed) are available for people to download and listen to. There really don’t seem to be many, the closest I could find were those which are based upon Graham Maxwell’s Larger View, AKA Great Controversy Trust and Healing model. Listed as follows:

The Sabbath School Lesson page of Dr. Jonathan Gallagher
Ken Hart's Sabbath School Class is recorded weekly on the campus of Loma Linda University in the Randall Visitor Center at 11080 Anderson Street (at the corner of Anderson Street and University Court) in Loma Linda, California. Recordings and Handouts are provided here in multiple formats for your personal and group study.


The following would consist of more traditional Adventist viewpoints:
Walla Walla University School of Theology present the Good Word hosted by Paul Dybdahl

Doug Batchelor’s ‘Central Study Hour’ Batchelor’s class is not a discussion at all more like a sermon, though he does have audience members read Bible verses.

The Denomination sponsors a couple of downloadable Sabbath School related programs:

A reading of the quarterly: Sabbath School Bible Study a pod cast service is brought to you by the South Pacific Division SDA quarterly weekly reading pod cast (mp3) audio recordings, in MP3 file format, of the Seventh-day Adventist Adult Bible Study Guide - Sabbath School lesson. Each file plays for about 40 minutes and is around 10mb in size. Streamed version at

Sabbath School U is a weekly program produced by the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries covering a quarterly topic or theme. It follows the studies found at or or

Sabbath School U Colligate:

Hope Sabbath School Study See for a schedule of when the class is broadcast. You can also subscribe to a podcast of the class to automatically download the video or audio in your own podcast feed reader. Teacher: Dr. Derek Morris
This runs a week behind unlike many of the other downloads which record their discussions earlier so that people can listen to the discussions before their local class,

And finally at Sharon Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Omaha, Nebraska the Sabbath School Department has a weekly Sabbath School Teachers Meeting. (does not post in advance of actual date thus you hear the last weeks lesson)
