Bible study and readings
Online Bible Study
Week 16: July 5-11
John 6:16-24 Jesus Walks on Water
For the next 6 weeks, we will be looking at Miracles from John’s Gospel
Spend time reading the Bible passages – and read them in different versions of the Bible if you have them to hand (or go to www.biblegateway.com)
Also, read a few verses before, and a few verses after the passage to give it some context. This is really important for understanding the Miracles.
For each of the Bible passages, think about the following questions:
What puzzled or surprised you about the passage?
Did anything jump out at you as though you were reading it for the first time?
What did you learn from the passage?
What do you think it was saying to the people of Jesus’ time?
What do you think God is saying to you now through the scripture you have just read?
You may want a notebook to write down your thoughts.
Then take the time to be still and to pray, thinking about the Word of God that you have read.
There will be a different Miracle each week as well as a Psalm to read.
