Bible study and readings
Lockdown Bible Study (November)
For the next 4 weeks we will be looking at readings for Advent, Prophecy and Beginnings.
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, if appropriate, to give it some context. This is really important for understanding.
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.
Take the time to be still and to pray, thinking about the Word of God that you have read.
