My Bible Studies – People

God has blessed me with the gift of being able to understand His word and help others do the same.  Many years ago while I was unemployed I discovered that I love to read His Word and put together Bible studies for in-depth study to help people get more fully into His Word.  Each study has 3 types of questions: general questions to help you delve deeper into the verses (yes, you will have to read a little closer); going deeper questions to help dig a little deeper into the text and what was going on (yes, you’ll have to do some thinking); and finally you’ll be able to get personal and apply things God has shown you to your life – which is where the real miracles (of change) occur (yes, this will require the courage to tell the truth).  May God bless you and teach you when you take any of these journeys!

  29. Stephen.  I am working on my study of Acts 9, when I backtrack a chapter or two to get some background info.  And I “stumble” upon a quick story of the disciple Stephen, the catalyst of the spread of the Jesus message after his death.  He becomes the first Christian martyr, the beacon in the movement to share Jesus and potentially die for your faith.  He died without fear and with great faith.  Would you say you have great faith? Study his life – it’s only 2 chapters.  It’s a brief story with a bold attitude and an arcing influence.
