Stuck inside? Have you ever considered taking on a thirty day, digging deeper bible STUDY challenge? As Christians, we are unwise to overly rely on others when it comes to our knowledge and understanding of the Bible. Think of the things that we are missing when we don’t study the entire counsel of God’s word for ourselves. But during this time of uncertainty, what better way to make productive use of the time than to dig deeper into God’s word? Beginning April 1st, I’m inviting anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge of God’s word, to join us in a thirty day BOOK OF MATTHEW, verse by verse bible STUDY challenge. As part of this challenge, I am suggesting that you not just read the book of Matthew as part of a daily devotion but rather, I’m inviting anyone who desires to take their bible knowledge to another level, to actually conduct a SYSTEMATIC 30 DAY INDUCTIVE STUDY of the book of Mathew. As you approach this study, you want to look and examine the biblical text of Mathew verse by verse, ONE CHAPTER PER DAY.
And as you study, you will want to look for the answers to the following questions: Who, What, Why, Where, When and How. Just as an example, as you study, you’ll want to consider and look for answers to such questions as, WHO is the book of Mathew written to? WHY did Mathew begin with a genealogy? WHAT was the historical context? WHAT was Christ primary message? WHAT specifically did He mean in each of His parables? And particularly as it relates to the day and time that we are now living, HOW specifically does His teachings apply to believers today? You may want to take advantage of other bible study tools such as, commentaries, and bible dictionaries, etc.
Also, I am recommending that all those who take this challenge, start by listening to the entire book of Matthew on any of your favorite audio bible apps like bible.is for example on day one, and then on day two, begin to conduct an in depth, verse by verse study, one chapter per day. In addition, you may find it helpful to make a daily journal, where you will make specific journal entries of things that you have learned (especially things that you learned that you previously didn’t know or understand), questions that you may have that you don’t quite understand, and finally any special insights that you feel that the Spirit of God has revealed to you. Finally, feel free to share and post questions, and/or comments here as you progress. Feel free also, to invite friends to take on this 30 day book of Matthew bible study challenge. God bless and let’s dig in.
