WHAT CAN YOU STUDY?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.”
First, before you know what to study, it’s helpful to know what kinds of things you can efficiently study. Some are easier than others, so below, I have listed a few types of bible studies that are great for just starting.
- A single verse
- A passage (the Proverbs 31 Woman in Proverbs 31:10-31) – Multiple verses, but not quite a chapter, passages are great for giving lots of information and context around a subject.
- A chapter (Psalm 23) – It doesn’t have to be a Psalm, but that is a common choice for this study method.
- A word (patience) – No language translates perfectly to another. Often in the Bible, the English language uses one word for multiple scenarios while the original text does not. Learning the different nuances and uses can provide exceptional insight.
- A theme – studying a theme is great for getting a biblical perspective on a particular matter and how to approach it.
TIP: Keep a reading list of everything you are studying
