Bible Studies

Bible Studies: Chapter by Chapter, Verse by Verse I was raised in an environment where Bible studies were taught chapter by chapter, verse by verse.  In other words, the kind of studies that start at the beginning of a book, and study it until reaching the end, covering each chapter and verse in the process.  Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16 that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”  There is nothing wrong with topical studies or word studies.  These certainly have their place in a thorough study of Scriptures.  But the original inspired authors of the books of the Bible did not insert chapter and verse divisions, and probably never dreamed that their writings would by quoted and cited as individual verses.  I can easily imagine Peter telling us, “I’m really glad that you enjoy what I wrote in 1 Peter 5:7 (casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you), but honestly, to really grasp that verse you should read the whole chapter!” The following studies are summaries from the notes I compile in preparation for our home Bible study and a weekly Sunday school class.  A new study will be posted approximately each week, and hopefully, someday, I’ll have a study available here from every chapter of every book of the Bible!  It will take me years at my current rate, but in the meantime, enjoy what we have so far from Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, Judges, Daniel, Malachi, and Jude:
