Anyone has the ability to study the Bible, either independently or in a group. Here’s a guide.

  1. Start with a verse
    Read it several times through, ideally in more than one translation. Bible websites are a great resource for this.
  2. What is the intended audience?

  5. How does it inform my relationship to God?
    Based on everything above, what is the verse revealing to you personally about God?
