Barren Beginnings, Part 3

I’ve been sitting on this last of three sessions for the Bible study, “Barren Beginnings” for a few days. I’m just not sure about it yet, so I would especially welcome your comments or suggestions on writing or content. Am I stating when I ought to be leading with questions? Is it too long, being half a page longer than the other two sessions? Is it less friendly to a broad audience? The previous parts are here and here.

And, once it’s in semi-final form, I’ll post it somewhere so you can download and print it for free use—probably on a new resource page! 🙂

Anyway, my dear husband had a stellar idea for systematic Bible studies.

Shared Ideas for Old Testament Bible Studies

I’ll admit that I’m married to a pastor and our Bible studies at church hinge on his personal research and due diligence. Still, he offered some great insight in yesterday’s class that got me thinking. I’ll offer a few suggestions but feel free to add your own for shared ideas for Old Testament Bible Studies.

Priority or Emphasis

It’s always hard to figure out which in a series of ideas should receive priority or emphasis. What should be included/what should be left out. Bible studies are especially hard, because there is simply so much depth and interconnection in God’s Word!

Single Session

A good day to you. I’ve just started playing around with a single session Bible study. I’m liking it. A fellow deaconess asked about a particular topic to see what was available, and I thought, “Wow, that really should be—or become—available.”
