Bible Studies

Looking for some help with how to study God’s word or searching for a study to use in your daily devotions? You’ve come to the right place. Follow the links below for more information, or click on the corresponding link in the category cloud in the sidebar to your left.

The studies I’ve written are like “training wheels”. They’re designed to teach you how to study the Bible for yourself and what kinds of questions to ask of the text so that, when you get the hang of it, you won’t have to depend on other people’s books and materials – even mine – any more. To that end:

I do not make recommendations for Bible study books or materials other than the Bible itself. 

I do not provide answers for the study questions in the studies I’ve written.

All of the studies I’ve written are suitable for groups or individuals. You are welcome to use them as a Sunday school or Bible study class curriculum (for free) with proper attribution.

You are also welcome to print out any of my Bible studies (or any article I’ve written) for free and make as many copies as you’d like, again, with proper attribution. I’ve explained more about that in this article (3rd section).

Bible Reading Plans

It has become my New Year’s Day tradition to publish an annual round up of Bible reading plans. Some plans will take you through the whole Bible, some, through a book of the Bible or a biblical topic. They range in length from a few days to a few years, to ongoing. There’s something for everybody! Click above for this year’s list.

Wednesday’s Word

Wednesday is Bible study day here on the blog. Here, you’ll find miscellaneous, one lesson Bible studies from each book of the Bible. One chapter of Scripture followed by study questions. This sampler series demonstrates that there’s nothing to be afraid of when approaching those “lesser known” books and that every book of the Bible is valuable and worth studying.

Sunday School: Chronological Study Lessons

During 2014, I led my ladies’ Sunday School class in a chronological read-through of the entire Bible. Each week I taught a lesson from that week’s reading and posted it here on the blog.

  1. I was wondering what your views were on “ungodly soul ties”, in reference to past relationships?

    • Hi Amber- Briefly, there’s no such thing. It’s not mentioned or taught anywhere in Scripture, and the only people I’ve ever heard teach such a thing are false teachers- usually those in the New Apostolic Reformation camp. If you’re sitting under the teaching of someone who teaches about soul ties, RUN.

      • Thank you for that clarification. So I guess another question would be, if i was in a previous relationship with someone who I was involved with physically, mentally, spirutally and emotionally. How would I loose myself from that?

    Hi,
    I am new here and saw the question about soul ties. I am a volunteer facilitator for a local abortion recovery ministry here. We have a topic within the study that talks about soul ties as part of the recovery. We use Her Choice to Heal by Sydna Masse. I had a nouthetic counseling pastor look over this portion and he could not find anything unbiblical about it. Could you expand on that for me?

    Thanks so much,

    Mary

  3. Hi Michelle,
    Can you recommend any Bible Studies for a suffering marriage? Thank you so much for this blog! God is using you in a very profound way!

    • Hi Brandi-

      Thank you so much for your kind words. If your marriage is suffering, the best advice I can give you is to encourage you to set up an appointment with your pastor for counseling. If you husband will go with you, great. If not, go by yourself. While a good book on marriage can certainly be a helpful supplement to counseling, it shouldn’t take the place of counseling. Additionally, once your pastor hears your specific situation, he might want to recommend a different and more helpful book than I could recommend.

      I hope this helps :0)

    • Hola,¿qué tal Susana?- Check out the “Wednesday’s Word” section above. I went through every book of the Bible and did one stand-alone lesson from each. (Some of the earliest ones do not have study questions, but most of them do.)

  5. Hi Michelle! Thank you so much for the wealth of information you have on your site. It has been such a blessing to my daughter and myself. I am trying to find biblically sound online bible studies for women that are NOT live. For a variety of reasons, I am not able to commit to a particular time to log on with others for Live interactions. I can, however, do the back and forth commenting. Any recommendations that I can look into? Appreciate you!

  6. Hey Michelle! I’d like to know your thoughts on topical studies? And there is a study you can suggest for a group of single women?

    • Hi Amber-

      Although we should normally study Scripture verse by verse (working our way through a book of the Bible from beginning to end), occasional topical studies, when Scripture is handled correctly, can be very beneficial. In fact, I’m considering doing a topical study (biblical womanhood) for the next one here at the blog when The Women of Genesis (our current study) is finished. “The Ten” (see above under “Old Testament”) is a topical study of the Ten Commandments.

      Any of the studies above would be appropriate for any group of women regardless of marital status, or your group can just pick a book of the Bible and work you way through it verse by verse. (I don’t recommend “canned” studies. I explain why here.)

      Hope this helps! :0)

    Our church is putting together a slumber party/overnight retreat for women. We have women who are new and others who have attended church and studies for years. I’m trying to find something for us to study on this night. Do you have something you could recommend? Most if us have been married for many years, there are a few that are newly married and one that is in a relationship but, not married . Your help would be appreciated.
