Prayer and praise points allow time for quiet contemplation and application of lesson.
Each section and series of questions has the following purposes:
· As a guide to make the study of Scripture easier and thus, motivate the user
· To help make the Scripture relevant to daily life
· To challenge the user to learn the great doctrines of the Bible by searching out other Scriptures
The lessons are divided into five parts:
Ø The Outline Section gives a bird’s-eye view of chapter’s content
Ø The Context Questions help the user understand the section in detail by honing in on points that are often missed
Ø The Research Study Questions challenge the user to search the Scriptures for answers, comparing one Scripture with another Scripture
Ø The Self-Examination Questions put the context of the Bible into a more practical term
Ø The Prayer and Praise Section allows for a time of quiet heart searching in which to praise God, ask for help, and contemplate the lessons of the study
The aim of Following God Through the Bible: An Overview of the Old Testament is to open up the Word of God. The questions asked are just the tool for understanding; the answers are where the rubber meets the road.
