BIBLE STUDY GUIDE

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

Introduction

     The Word of God, the Bible, is unread by many people and therefore unknown by both practicing and non-practicing Christians, non-Christians, and the secularly well-educated and non-educated.  Many people are familiar with parts of the Bible, either by hearing the Word via churches or TV evangelism, or by reading only parts of the Bible.  This Bible Study Guide was written with the express purpose of encouraging individuals or groups to systematically read the entire Bible.  The length of time this takes depends entirely upon the reader but, ideally, the first reading should be done within a year.  In subsequent years, as the Holy Spirit inspires, we can read chosen books more in depth so that the Word will penetrate our hearts as we remember and rely upon God’s principles for truly Christian living.


The Catholic Bible contains 46  Books of the Old Testament and 27 Books of the New Testament.  The Protestant Bible contains 39 Books of the Old Testament and 27 Books of the New Testament.  An additional seven Old Testament books  are considered “apocryphal” by Protestants:  1 and 2 Maccabees, Baruch, Tobit, Judith, The Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Ecclesiasticus.  For Catholics these books are “deuterocanonical.”   This Study Guide will be profitable to anyone, regardless of religion who wishes to know more about our Biblical roots and who wishes to hear (God speaks to our hearts) the inspired Word of God.    “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”  Romans 10:17 


The study guide contains questions of content, memory, comprehension, analysis, and is thought provoking.  Reading the Bible can be a sole endeavor or can be done in a group where there should be much discussion while using the questions as a mode to “keep on target.”


These questions can be revised each year as we progress in our understanding of God’s Word through the working of the Holy Spirit within us.  May God bless this endeavor of reading and studying the awesomeness and wonderfulness of our Lord.
