How To Study The Bible-God's Word In Your Life

Instructions:  You can use the course online or print each lesson and fill in the blanks.  If you're taking these courses with the goal of receiving a diploma or becoming a member of Web-Church, you must answer and file a copy of each lesson to submit to Web-Church once you've completed all lessons.  If you wish to make a file copy, you can highlight the text and paste it into a text file.  Pay close attention to any affirmations, commitments or Bible memory verses at the end of lessons.  These are included to help cement the lesson content into your life. 

Introduction:  Possibly the biggest cause of error, division, abuse and painful conflict in the Church is the unwillingness of Christians to learn for themselves what God's Word says and apply it to their lives. According to George Barna in his book, Index Of Leading Spiritual Indicators, only 34% of  U.S. adults claim to have opened the Bible once a week other than at church.  Only 7.5 % claim to read it daily. Having pastored for over 10 years, it's been my observation that less than 20 % of those active in church have a working understanding of the Bible.  This observation is based on the attitudes displayed by their actions and statements. Mt 15:18 "…the things that come out of the _____ come from the _____."

These numbers seem impossible when compared to the "Christian" business growth. This is a multi-billion-dollar industry, surely, these consumers must have great knowledge of the things of God. Not really! Most of the books sold are not Bibles or Bible study tools, but fiction, commentary, doctrinal argument, wiggy "spiritual" advice, "devotional" mis-applications of Scripture, and "new age" philosophy. Now, many of the Bibles sold have someone's opinion included prominently on the same page as God's Word. This lesson is devoted to giving you the beginning tools to read, understand and apply God's Word. Our goal at is to have you independent of anyone's commentary or teaching other than that of the Holy Spirit. I Jn 2:27 "As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you __ ___ need anyone to _____ you. But as his anointing teaches you about ___ things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in ___."

1. What's The Big Deal About A Book? The Bible is more than Just a book. It's a compilation of over 60 books, written by over 40 authors, over a course of more than 1,500 years, yet it miraculously portrays its one message with clarity throughout. What message? God, our Creator, loves us and wants so much to be in intimate, eternal relationship with us that He sacrificed His Son to allow us to choose His love. Miraculously, there has never been a historical or scientific discovery that refutes any detail or prophecy in the Bible. No other ancient document can make that claim. Miraculously, out of the thousands of ancient Biblical manuscripts in existence there are no disagreements in content. No other ancient document can make that claim. Still, we need to know more. What claims does the Bible make about itself?

Mt 24:35 "Heaven and Earth will pass away, but my _____ will _____ pass away."

Is 40:8 "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the ____ of our God ______ forever."

Jesus quoted from the Old Testament and then called it the "Word of ___". Mt 15:6

II Tim 3:16 "All _________ is God –breathed…"

II Pe 1:21 "…prophecy never had its ______ in the will of man, but men spoke from ___ as they were _______ along by the Holy Spirit."

I Co 2:13 "This is what we speak, not in _____ taught us by _____ wisdom but in words taught by the ______."

The Bible is not just a book. It's a collection of Words from God, so important that God had them recorded and protected for thousands of years, just so you could know them today.
