Bible Studhy Lesson

February 18, 2007

The following questions are to practice Bible study for the purpose of finding answers to various questions that people may ask even you.  The purpose of these questions is not for you to get the right answer or to get the answer that the instructor is looking for even though the instructor will provide his answers to these questions.  The purpose is for you to study the Bible for the purpose of getting answers.


For each question simply use as many Bible study resources as you can to get the answer or to form a conclusion.  I recommend that you use a Bible dictionary, concordance (such as the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible), and a good study Bible.  It is good to build a bible study library.
Base your conclusions on scripture and avoid giving mere opinions.  Read the scriptures pertaining to the topic of the question and do your best to extract what the Bible teaches from a collection of scriptures.  In some cases some scripture references are given to get you started.  Those scriptures should not be considered all inclusive, but instead are just a start.


  1. How can we please God?
  2. What does the Bible mean when it says that God is jealous (See Exodus 20:5, 34:14; Deuteronomy 4:24, 5:9)?
  3. Starting with Hebrews chapter eleven how would you define faith?
  4. Explain Matthew 7:13-14
  5. What is eternal life and what does it have to do with your life now?
  6. What is love in regards to God’s love towards us and our love towards others?
  7. Paul said that we are justified by faith (Galatians 2:15-16).  What is justification?
  8. What is the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
  9. Tax collectors are thought of as sinners during the time of Jesus.  Why is this so?
  10. Who were the Pharisees, Scribes, and Saducees.  Describe the differences and similarities between all three.
  11. Discuss predestination, election, and determinism in relation to someone becoming saved.

Discussion Question

By referring to Romans 1:19-20, can you tell how a person can be saved without ever hearing the gospel?  In other words, can man know beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is a God?
