The following study questions will help any Bible learner or leader to better understand any passage of Scripture. We can use these questions as a guide for what we write in our journals or for what we prepare in our time of teaching others.
These study questions can also be used for every group study to help the group learn together and to make it easy for anyone to lead a small group study. All a leader or facilitator has to do is designate the section of Scripture to be read aloud that day and then ask the following study questions for the group to discuss together. Choose from either of the following:
