Bible Study Series

I teach a ten or eleven week Adult Sunday School class each year at church. Each class is one hour. These are the studies that I have done so far. Each one has my notes and handouts. You are welcome to use them as you desire.

If you have any comments or suggestions then please email me at bob@disciplescorner.com. Thank you.

  • Who is God and Why does it Matter to Us

    I believe that knowing who and what God is is the foundation for the Christian life. It is what will keep us on a constant spiritual and emotional growth throughout all of our lives. When hard times hit, our feet will be on the solid rock of God rather than on circumstances.Therefore, we will not be thrown into great highs and lows. We do not trust strangers so how can we trust God if we do not know Him?

    Instead of paper handouts for this series, I used a laptop and PowerPoint while I taught. Therefore, the handouts are actually PowerPoint presentations. If you want, you can print them on paper and use them as handouts instead. However, there has been some problems opening these as PowerPoint (they come up as gibberish instead). So I also included these as PDF files.

  • Developing Great Relationships

    You will probably notice that even though my Sunday School class is eleven weeks long there are only seven studies listed here. That is because each study would last around one and a half classes. I actually did not even get to the last study, "Forgiving Yourself" because the eleven weeks were already completed.

    You will also notice that there are only two handouts for this series. That is because rather than pass out a handout for every class, each of these two handouts is for one half of the class. One reason for this was because I never knew how far I would get in the class and so I did not know ahead of time where I would finish.

    Almost all of the material in these studies comes from my book "Developing Great Relationships" that you can either download or view for free on this website or you can download it on Kindle. A lot of the material on forgiveness comes from Lewis Smedes, "Forgive and Forget."

  • Jesus Himself Alone

    This Bible study series covers six key aspects of Jesus' life: His fulfilling OT prophecies, Deity, Incarnation, Miracles, Prayers, and Crucifixion.

    For the handout, I created one large handout that I gave to everyone at the beginning of the first class.Since I did not know exactly what I would complete in any one session I felt that it was easier this way.

  • Spiritual Gifts

    This Bible Study is about how to determine what spiritual gift(s) you might have. Unlike the other Bible Study Serieses on this page which are ten to twelve weeks in length, this one is more like three weeks.It consists of the two studies. During the second study the questionnaire is passed out to each member of the group, completed, and then scored.

    Though the entire subject of tongues and prophecy are controversial, I believe that they still exist today. I do not see anywhere in Scripture that says that they went away. However, I do believe that they are not as pervasive (universal) as some require. Nor do I believe that they are necessary to prove salvation nor to be saved. If you do not think that tongues or prophecy are gifts that are still active then feel free to adjust the questionnaire as you see fit.

  • A New Creation - Who we are in Christ

    When we are born-again it is not just that we are given a membership to the church nor is it that we are merely guaranteed a ticket on the glory train to Heaven. It is much more--we are transformed.

    This study is going to look at how we are given new perspectives, new desires, and new meaning. We are indeed a new creation.

    Though this study is 12 weeks long it is all in one document rather than 12 separate files.

  • What does Everyone Believe? - Comparative Religion

    Two thirds of the world does believe in Christianity. Does that matter? It matters a great deal. In this study we will look at Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam and how they compare to Christianity and how does one share the Gospel with people in these groups.

    We will look at the history and beliefs of each religion and how we should respond to those beliefs.

    Though this study is 12 weeks long it is all in one document rather than 12 separate files.

    Since this was originally posted, I have added a new section on religious Nones (aka the Unaffiliated).

  • How to get the most out of Studying the Bible

    You read the Bible over and over and most of the time you get nothing new out of it. God rarely speaks to you. In this study you will learn techniques and resources that will open up God's word to you. This study is going to take a very common passage and, by going verse by verse, learn various ways to dig deeper and hear what God wants to personally teach you. We will see how the Bible can come alive for you and by you.

    How to make the Bible come alive by learning how to dig deep and mine the many treasures of God' word.

    Though this study is 12 weeks long it is all in one document rather than 12 separate files.

  • Titus 2:6-10: Developing Godly Character

    This is a one-time study for a preaching class where each person was assigned a passage in Titus. I got Titus 2:6-10 and decided to develop the theme of developing godly character.

    The pictures were printed on paper and stapled to cardboard to keep them from flopping over when I held them up.

    The embosser mentioned at the end is something that you probably do not have and you may not want to buy one just for this. You can try using anything that will push an image into a piece of paper like perhaps a ring with a design on it.
