Bible Studies

bible study

 

Looking for some help with how to study God’s word or searching for a study to use in your daily devotions? You’ve come to the right place. Follow the links below for more information, or click on the corresponding link in the category cloud in the sidebar to your left. All studies are suitable for groups or individuals. You are welcome to use them as a Sunday school or Bible study class curriculum (for free) with proper attribution.

Why do I intentionally refrain from providing a list of answers to the study questions? Because the purpose of my Bible studies is not for you to get the “right answers.” My goal is to demonstrate for you the kinds of questions you should be asking of any passage of Scripture you approach. The purpose is to teach you (or your small group) how to study the Bible on your own so you won’t need to depend on a “canned” study written by somebody else, even me. I’m trying to work myself out of a job. You know- teach a woman to fish rather than giving her a fish.

Wednesday’s Word

Wednesday is Bible study day here on the blog. Here, you’ll find miscellaneous, one lesson Bible studies from each book of the Bible. One chapter of Scripture followed by study questions. This sampler series demonstrates that there’s nothing to be afraid of when approaching those “lesser known” books and that
every book of the Bible is valuable and worth studying.

Sunday School: Chronological Study Lessons

During 2014, I led my ladies’ Sunday School class in a chronological read-through of the entire Bible.
Each week I taught a lesson from that week’s reading and posted it here on the blog.

  1. I was wondering what your views were on “ungodly soul ties”, in reference to past relationships?

    • Hi Amber- Briefly, there’s no such thing. It’s not mentioned or taught anywhere in Scripture, and the only people I’ve ever heard teach such a thing are false teachers- usually those in the New Apostolic Reformation camp. If you’re sitting under the teaching of someone who teaches about soul ties, RUN.

      • Thank you for that clarification. So I guess another question would be, if i was in a previous relationship with someone who I was involved with physically, mentally, spirutally and emotionally. How would I loose myself from that?

    Hi,
    I am new here and saw the question about soul ties. I am a volunteer facilitator for a local abortion recovery ministry here. We have a topic within the study that talks about soul ties as part of the recovery. We use Her Choice to Heal by Sydna Masse. I had a nouthetic counseling pastor look over this portion and he could not find anything unbiblical about it. Could you expand on that for me?

    Thanks so much,

    Mary

  3. Hi Michelle,
    Can you recommend any Bible Studies for a suffering marriage? Thank you so much for this blog! God is using you in a very profound way!

    • Hi Brandi-

      Thank you so much for your kind words. If your marriage is suffering, the best advice I can give you is to encourage you to set up an appointment with your pastor for counseling. If you husband will go with you, great. If not, go by yourself. While a good book on marriage can certainly be a helpful supplement to counseling, it shouldn’t take the place of counseling. Additionally, once your pastor hears your specific situation, he might want to recommend a different and more helpful book than I could recommend.

      I hope this helps :0)
