How to Have a Great Bible Study in 4 Simple Steps
Have you ever sat down and opened your Bible, only to find you don’t really know where to start? Perhaps you read a chapter and then just move on, not knowing what would come next in actually studying the passage? Or, maybe there are passages in the Bible that are confusing, so you just keep go back to the same familiar ones? What if there were just four simple steps to having a deep personal Bible study, every time? In today’s episode of the Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast, our Director of Theology, Joel Muddamalle, teaches four simple steps that will enable you to have a great personal Bible study. Using Mark 6 as a guide, Joel will help you dive deep into Scripture in a fresh, relevant way that you can apply to any passage in the Bible. You’ll discover… You don’t have to be a theology expert to learn what God’s Word means; you just need to start with where you are! Identifying key themes, common elements, characters and locations in each passage you read will help you connect the dots from Genesis to Revelation. Taking the crucial step to imagine yourself in the passage you read will help you connect to Scripture emotionally, just like you would in any other book!To read the transcript for this episode click here.Related Resources: Ready to start studying the Bible in a fresh way?
