Simple Bible Study: 5 Questions

Sharing Scripture with 5 Questions

This is a simple Bible study method that can be meaningful to both believers and non-believers. Simply read through complete books of the Bible together in community. Develop this simple habit in community on a regular basis.

Stretch out your right hand as far as you can. Next, measure the distance between your thumb and pinky. Read that much Scripture only. Preferably a contained story or idea—like the second chapter of James, or a parable, or one of the Psalms like chapter 23.

After you read the Scripture, ask these Five Questions and let people answer as they feel led:
1. What did you like about what we just read?
2. What didn’t you like?
3. Was there anything you didn’t understand?
4. What did you learn about God?
5. Regardless of where your faith is at right now, if you were to apply what we learned about God to something in your life this week, what would that look like?
