Each study can be completed by just reading over the passage being used and answering the questions. It is best to use a modern translation of the Bible, such as the New International Version (NIV), New American Standard Bible (NASB) or the Revised Standard Version (RSV). These are the most easily understood and most accurate translations of the Bible that are currently available. You should allow yourself about 30-40 minutes to do each study. (Some are longer and can

be divided into two parts if you cannot complete them in one sitting.) There is room right in the booklet to write your answers to the questions. Be sure to take enough time to think through your answers and actually write them down. You’ll be amazed at what you will discover as you begin to read and study the Bible. I hope this series of studies will spark in you a hunger to know more of God’s Word and that you will begin a life-long habit of reading the Bible! Here is what the author of Psalm 1 says about a person who hungers after the word of God: Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers! God Bless You, Marlene Nathan

  • Pardoner's Essay

    839 words, 4 pages

    The Insincere Pardoner Chaucer satirizes the Church by using irony with the Pardoner's prevaricated indulgences, homosexual features, and deceiving actions, which contributes to the meaning of the story by criticizing the Church. Chaucer creates irony by making the Pardoner sell indulgences for self gain of money. A Pardoner sells indulgences to people who have committed sins in order to repent them and gets money in exchange. However, Chaucer reveals that the Pardoner does this duty for self-interest. He writes, “His wallet lay before him on his lap”(line 706). Instead of focusing on doi

    The Role Of Women In The Church

    1995 words, 8 pages

    Book Of Galations The role of women in the Christian faith has always been matter of debate. Whether women are equal to men in the eyes of the church still presents itself as a major question as we move into the 21st century. Women are still not allowed to serve as priests or hold major positions in the church s hierarchy. This inferiority is something that is seen as tradition and rarely do people question it. However, in Paul s letters he alluded to a different role that women should take on. He presents the idea that everyone is equal in the eyes of the Lord as long as they have been baptiz

    As one is growing up in this world, one thing that most parents try to stress on their kids is the importance of having God in his/her life. Kids are taught at a very young age to love and fear God at the same time, especially in the black community. Grandparents, mostly grandmas, are also a influence amongst young children to accept God into his/her life. Although it doesn’t have to be just them, for instance, in “Salvation” young Langston is most influenced by his aunt and Church family as a whole to be saved. Many people are confused at the actual concept of what it means to be saved.

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (
